I've been on the ride. It's a warehouse-style room with a big screen and a ride vehicle that moves a bit.
What on earth is so time-consuming that it will take a couple of years to expand?
I guess it's easier to just keep adding to one of the few decent attractions in Future World and just keep ignoring the outdated stuff that no one visits. It makes it easier for me, since it means there's no reason to get to Epcot before World Showcase opens.
All film suffers from motion judder eventually. Those holes in the film that the gears use to feed it through the aperture get worn out and enlarged over time and it the picture can shift a few inches on a screen that large.
Four 8K projectors can be stitched to produce 16K resolution very easily.
The new version of Soarin' has been rumored for years and years, and is supposed to be called Soarin' Around the World. I certainly hope that the head office will force WDW to adopt the new version, since we've all seen the old one a zillion times.
It's nice that Disney doesn't depend on screen based attractions like Universal ...
That's right, Anon, let's give Disney a pass for moving at a glacial pace because they do it "RIGHT" and Universal puts in '"off the shelf" mechanicals' in "like 99% of Universal's rides."
Put down the Kool-Aid and face the facts. Both parks give us great attractions of all kinds. One company moves slowly, and the other is doing amazing things and being very responsive to their customers. Just because you can't handle reality doesn't mean that the rest of us have agree with your silliness!
Both the anonymous comments above you looked like snark to me
