I think Japan is another one that was supposed to have a ride too but they ran out of time/money.

Disney World ran out of money? Time maybe, but not money.

IIRC, when they were building EPCOT the idea was that the countries were going to both pay (either fully or partially) for their pavilions and help staff them with people from their countries.  Some countries flat out told Disney no, who then built them anyways without the countries support.  Some said yes, but had trouble paying up.  I think the only country to actually agree to the deal and follow through was Morocco.

To add: The idea was that these countries would use these pavilions as promotional tools to get tourists to visit their actual countries.  It was part of the original Walt Disney's vision of EPCOT (well after the actual city of the future vision) where it was a permanent World's Fair.

And one more thing to add: The late 70's and early 80's were not kind to Disney.  I believe the entire Disney company was having financial issues right before Eisner came aboard in 1984.  EPCOT opened in 1982.

I heard that it was pride night last game. They didn't tell you that LGBT stands for "let's go Binghamton team", though.

You know it's a fvcking terrible season when there is more talk about the history of the Epcot centre than the team on the ice in a game day thread. 

Especially when I was more interested in the discussion about the Epcot centre.

Wow he just started moving. 

Frolik was not blameless, but it certainly was not intentional.
