It's events like these that make me wish I lived in the area. There's nothing to do here in Wisconsin remotely close to this kinda thing.

You know, since Disney XD is airing Naruto Shippuden in the US, why not add this attraction to the Japan Pavilion at Epcot? It would be a perfect addition to Walt Disney World.

Disney doesn't really care about Naruto, they just grabbed it so CN couldn't air it as one of their big hits. Apparently Viz isn't happy with the way it was treated and are looking to ship it to another channel.

I think CN dropped Naruto even before Disney decided to pick it up.

They have the Densha Otoko bunny girl but not the original Daicon IV bunny girl that the entire Densha Otoko sequence was based on? Thank goodness I avoided that part of Epcot when I visited Orlando. I'd have been furious.

The orginal Naruto had been dropped but CN was in the market to pick back up Shippuden because it would reapeal to the fanbase that grew up on Naruto when they used to air it on Toonami those years ago. Also, the Shippuden story gets more mature to the point where it would be justified to show it on Saturday night's Adult Swim block along with Bleach.
Considering it is one of the three pieces of the millenium anime trinity CN wouldn't have hesitated on own two of them had Disney not gotten involved. The problem was also putting it on Anime hyper instead of the normal Disney channel as Anime hyper is not included in any standard package through companies so people have top pay extra to get it and how often does that happen when a series is dubbed behind the story this much to where it is easier and actually more interesting to watch the subs.
