Kill Refurb Marry – Epcot Pre-Shows

June 11, 2014

Kill Refurb Marry

It’s time for another round of Kill Refurb Marry hosted by Mouse on the Mind and This Happy Place Blog. This time around we are taking a look at the pre-shows at Epcot. I thought this one would be hard since only one pre-show came to mind when I first started thinking about the topic. But it ended up being fairly cut and dry. Here are my choices.

Kill – Mission: SPACE

Mission: SPACE

I have no love for Mision: SPACE. Sorry. I was initially really intrigued by this attraction because I’ve always had a fascination with space and I’m a bit of a sci-fi junkie. And then I had the bright idea to try the orange level of intensity and thought I really was going to have to use one of the barf bags they provide. Sorry Gary Senise I love you but this is not a pre-show that I want to see again any time soon.

Refurb – Ellen’s Energy Adventure

Universe of Energy

I adore this attraction. It was one of my favorites as a kid (dinosaurs!) and it’s still an attraction that we visit almost every trip. But I would love to see the pre-show updated. Keep Ellen, Bill Nye, maybe even Stupid Judy but it needs a little love. An addition I would love to see, Neil deGrasse Tyson. After watching the newest version of Cosmos I think he would be a perfect fit.

Marry – IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth isn’t my favorite nighttime spectacular at Walt Disney World but I LOVE the music loop that plays before the shows begins. The music really sets the mood for the show. And since you have to get a spot early it’s nice having something to listen to.

Which Epcot Pre-show is your favorite? Make sure to stop by This Happy Place Blog and Mouse on the Mind to check out the other blogs participating and to link up your post.

    Neil DeGrasse adding to Universe of Energy is an excellent idea! Although I would still be sad to see the current version go…I just love how she jumps all over the screen. I think it makes for some great comic timing.
