Innoventions, the Epcot attraction that Disney touts as a technological showcase for the world's leading companies, welcomed its newest corporate sponsor this week when T. Rowe Price cut the ribbon on a financial-education attraction. Another will debut later this year when Raytheon opens a new, math-based simulator. These sponsored exhibits generate around $1 million each.
Read more from The Orlando Sentinel.
I hope the T. Rowe Price isn't about banking and investment in the 21st century. Such an attraction would more appropriately belong in Fantasyland.
I thought it was hilarious that they describe it as a shortcut to other attractions. That's totally what I do!
Cool! With Raytheon as a sponsor, I look forward to the "How-To Build a Missile Defense" exhibit.
(Sorry.. Its my competing company in the DoD sector..couldn't resist).
Also the Quote:
Disney says the attraction is popular with guests. The resort says thatone out of every two people who visit Epcot tour Innoventions.
Is close to being correct.. I go in to Geek out and my wife stays outside and waits for me :)Last edited by ridemcoaster, Sunday, May 24, 2009 11:28 AM
