    I like this thread, this is my first trip back since 2015 too. I've read most of it here on the board but it's nice to have it kind of organized! Also, I keep forgetting the Muppets...must see the Muppets!

    I appreciate this thread too since June 2014 was my last visit. While I remain quite envious of those of you who get to go once a year, I am excited that there are so many new things for me to see since it's been awhile!

    It didn't replace anything. It's about a 10 min show that takes place on a second story in liberty square by Hall of presidents

    They replaced the old story with a new simulation. Like it. You get to orbit the Earth.

    I left Geyser Point and Nomad Lounge off my list because I don’t want more people going there. :)
