Ready to go back in time? That's right, we've embarked on the first set of defunct Epcot attractions: CommuniCore, Innoventions, The Living Seas, World of Motion.We can thank CommuniCore and Innoventions for some wild interactive exhibits like Get Set Jet, a game where guests helped people board a plane and Where's The Fire?, Presented by Liberty Mutual Insurance. The Living Seas gave us a foundation to absolutely cover with Nemo & Friends IP, but do you remember the Hydrolater that brought you to and from Seabase Alpha? And how about The World of Motion's mix of sculptures, massive screens, and animatronics that brought you through a brief history of transportation? (It might even be the inspiration for our own name!) We've just scratched the surface of defunct Epcot attractions, so stay tuned for more!Do you have a favorite long-gone attraction in Epcot?

It's time for a news round-up! Disney's announced A LOT in the last month or so, so we figured we'd take a step away from the parks to chat about how these changes are impacting future trips to Disney World. We cover the new Genie app experience, Genie+, Lightning Lanes, Annual Pass tiers and pricing, the proposed Star Wars Starcruiser schedule, a small mention of Boo Bash, and the "now-Not-So-Magical Express" from MCO. There's a lot to cover and we're expecting to see even more changes as these new prices and systems all have time to settle into their groove.What are your thoughts on the latest news?

That's right folks, it's eatery time. Sure, we tried to add all of the eateries in The Official Disney List For Cool Kids Who Like Good Stuff ® - EPCOT Edition and realized our mistake about a quarter of the way through World Showcase. But it's time to fix that list and give those restaurants their own eatery bracket!So join us as we fix 👏 that 👏 list 👏and then run through the bracket to determine the absolute best eatery in Epcot! And yes, the Magic KingDOME naming couldn't be topped, so Danielle's deemed this the Epcot Eatery Bracket Beatdown Extravaganza because she has editing powers for this description.

This week on Rope Droppin' we've reached the back half of the World Showcase in our home country: America! before stopping by the Italy pavilion. Just one big attraction this time: The American Adventure and boy is it a long one, but it is packed with animatronics, so maybe it's worth the stop?

"So raise the curtain and light the lights!" This week we're outside the bubble with the 1990 television special: The Muppets at Walt Disney World, aired on the Magical World of Disney. Being a massive Muppets fan, Danielle *might* have forced this on the World of Commotion crew, but how could we pass up a nostalgic visit to the parks with the Muppets? AND we get to see the duo we've been waiting for: Rizzo and Charles Grodin? What more could you want?!This special's pretty easy to find on Youtube and Vimeo, so if you're a Muppets or Disney Parks fan and haven't seen this gem, it's definitely worth 45 min of your time.Did you see this special when you were younger?
