Magic Kingdom>> Tomorrowland>> ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter:
ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, which opened in 1994 and replaces Mission to Mars, becomes a strong contender--along with Space Mountain--as the signature attraction in Tomorrowland. When you visit this interplanetary trade center, you will be among the first to see a demonstration of a new technology that will allow objects--and even people--to be transported instantaneously across galactic distances. Of course, as with all new technologies, things may go a little awry--but not to worry. As is customary with Disney attractions, there is a short animatronic character pre-show that sets the scene.
Magic Kingdom>> Main Street Athletic Shop:
This shop, which features sports-oriented souvenirs, replaced the House of Magic, the Main Street Bookstore, and the Penny Arcade in the summer of 1995.
EPCOT>> The Land>> Circle of Life, An Environmental Fable:
The 13 minute, live action & animated movie Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable starring Pumbaa and Timon of Lion King fame replaced the ho-hum movie Symbiosis on January 21, 1995. This attraction, which one previously never had to wait to get into, now often has lines snaking around the main corridor.

Resorts>> Grand Floridian>> Wedding Pavilion:
Although technically not part of the Grand Floridian, the Wedding Pavilion, opened June 1995, is located next to the Grand Floridian in the space between the Grand Floridian and the Polynesian Resort. Designed as a large, enclosed Victorian gazebo, this site was developed to meet the growing demand for couples desiring to be married at Walt Disney World. A complete wedding planning service is provided. Weddings of all sizes can be accommodated and, if you like, you can arrange to have the bride arrive in Cinderella's Glass Coach and the groom on a white horse, with Mickey and Minnie as the witnesses!
