Rides or Resorts that need 2 be pitched or updated.

I will shoot first.

Parks

Muppet Vision 3D, The Great Movie Ride, and Indiana Jones Stunt Show all at DHS. They need to go or get updated.

Dinoland USA should get a complete overhaul and ret heme.

Tomorrowland and Future World at Epcot need 2 be updated.

Resorts

The Contemporary Resort: Same thing as TL and FW, NEED TO BE UPDATED.

That is all.

I do not want any of the HS rides you mentioned updated, I really like them just the way they are. I also like Dinoland how it is, but coudl do without the stupid carinival games. Only rides I'd really like them to do away with are Stich, Tomorrowland Speedway, and Avatar land (if it happens).

Muppet Vision does need to be updated. The technology has come so far since it was introduced that it looks silly. Still probably my favorite part of DHS though. I love sitting in the Muppet Theater.

I am probably committing Disney heresey, but the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse was boring 30 years ago and hasn't gotten any better. Has the movie even been on TV in the past 25 years?

I believe stitch really does need to go that wasn't great at all last time I went on it. Tomorrowland speedway should never go its one of those great fun classics but could do an update. Muppet vision shouldn't go but does need an update. But really anything in Hollywood studios is up in the air if some expansion project is actually brought on. AK could use some updating on the rides throughout the park I haven't seen much change in rides for about 5 years.

~LOL. This question is too difficult to answer, it's much easier to ask what doesn't need updating at WDW. But, I agree with most of the comments and I'll throw in the Poly for good measure.

I would say Imagination,Muppets for sure. Hollywood studios needs to be redone. More Rides! Epcot also needs updating and more rides,and so does Animal Kingdom. More Rides. I love Disney but they have to get more creative and design good rides. They ruined Test Track. Black boards with green lights flashing through it?

~LOL. I spoke too soon! The Poly Hawaii just got a fabulous update! Yay! I had no idea -- anyway, it looks like that horrid green marble nightmare with the water stains & rust/calcium build up is gone! I do wish Disney would add balconies to the second floor. I just don't like to stay in run down hotels, that's gross. Hotels need to be updated more frequently, especially at a place with high turnover like Disney World. Okay, since the Poly is currently undergoing (much needed) renovations and adding DVC, I'm going to have to suggest the monorail!

Muppets needs to be redone, and with the sequel to The Muppets coming out,it can go hand in hand with the movie.

Adventureland needs as many new rides as it can get. The only reason to go there is POTC, to finish Sorcerers, and if you really like it, than Jungle Cruise.

I personally think Lights Motors Action! should go, it cost a lot of money, it is fairly boring IMO, and last time I went, didn't bring much of a crowd.

Overall, I think MGM should get more rides, I don't see them making Cars Land, but Star Wars instead.

I don't really see the point in Camp Minnie Mickey, so I think it should go, I also think Dino-Rama should go, as much as I love Primeval Whirl, it doesn't bring in money, small, and boring.

Not really a need but it'd be nice to have another hotel on the monorail loop between CR and TTC. I know there were issues with that land in the past but hopefully in 2013 they can now overcome this

Completely agree that Muppets 3D needs updated as does the Indiana Jones Spectacular and the Great Movie Ride, which is exactly as I remember it from my first visit to DHS in 1991.

Any park areas named "Tomorrowland" or "Future World" should be just that and able to be changed or updated to more accurately reflect what life may be like 20-30 years from now as opposed to 20-30 years from when MK opened. Same thing with the Contemporary Resort which is anything but contemporary. At least they could update the carpet....

Personally I wouldn't update Dinoland as it's one of my children's favorite places in AK and home to one of my favorite roller coasters.

Someone else mentioned updating the Poly, but I think by initial concept and design it is one of the only resorts that should never have to be updated or remodeled to keep up with current trends. However, along the same lines Swiss Family Tree House could use some updating or be taken out completely.

I believe that the World Showcase could use some major overhaul and massive expansion of better rides/attractions in every country.
