    The news last week that the hours for Epcot's Future World would be expanded to run from park opening to close (typically 9am to 9pm). However some attractions still close at 7pm as they did before. This really means that there has been no real change, except previously Future World would close at 7pm, with certain attractions remaining open for longer, and now it's the other way around, with Future World remaining opening until close, but with certain attractions closing at 7pm.

    We noticed that when we were there. It's confusing as all get out for guests. Open it all or close it all. Nonsense to do otherwise.

    This really doesn't make any sense. It's like the jokes on us.

    I wonder if that means the restaurants will remain open in Future World?

    Sometimes it's hard to find the logic, innit?

    Whatever the reason I'm sure it's cost affective.

    I don't get how shutting down main attractions can be cost effective if the attraction is what draws the guests TO Future World, and the shops, ect. there????

    Darn good thing I didn't go into business...
