For those of you wondering what the facade of Test Track will look like when it is completed, wonder no more: If you look closely, you’ll even see the World of Motion pavilion logo in the giant T on the canopy. Test Track presented by Chevrolet opens December 6th at Epcot. So, what do you think of the new look for Test Track?
WDWNT Reporter Adam Roth has been all over the Disney Parks this weekend. Here are some assorted photos (that don’t include his 400 from New Fantasyland) he took at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom shirts available at Sir Mickey’s Work continues on the restrooms going in at the old Skyway site Yankee Trader still behind tarps Weird… Rock-work appearing FastPass Plus still installed at Haunted Mansion The Magic Kingdom is getting ready for RFID park entry We believe that the purpose of the steel truss at the park entrance is a test for a new possible exit Cast members have been routing guests leaving the park through wider gates in the center and counting off [...]

Phineas and Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure recently debuted at Epcot replacing the former Kim Possible version of the attraction. The new version is eerily similar at times, but the saving grace has to be the writing for the new scenes. Phineas and Ferb is a show heavy on comedy and the attraction is no different. Each mission really is a mini-episode of the Disney Channel show, following the usual story arc. The second mission I had a chance to try out was Germany. Again, most of the effects were the same, but it felt fresh and exciting with the new characters, story, and comedy bits. Take a look for yourself:
