I don't disagree with that, but then if the decision was made to make it a nostalgic look at what tomorrow was supposed to be like in 1971 then rename it Yesterdays-Tomorrow-Todayland.

I agree that the Muppets needs updated.

Also at HS would like to see something go into Sounds Dangerous and American Idol building.

AK - could use another headliner.

MK - Update PP, make the speedway like Autopia at DL, get rid of Stitch

Epcot - would like to see another WS ride. Make some mini-pavilions like they did in 2000.

Carousel of progress, needs a complete makeover, and brought up to date.

Speedway, needs a redo, and some type of controls when you are reentering pit row that you can not slam into the person infront of you, my mom was injured on the ride in january, on our last visit a man was helping is young son out, of the car and some kid not paying attention slammed into them, knocking the boy onto the side walk and the dad, out into the lane.

Stich - just not my cup of tea.

Splash mountain, seems to need more maintaining, when we there is January they had it shut down and were working on it, hopefully this will help. Still love the theme.

Country Bears, so corny, but we love to go to it, lots of memories.

Tom Sawyers island - What is this about, the last several visits it has not been open - maybe turning it into cool eatry with lots of windows and some outside pavillons ( like at AK) would be nice and the ride on the boats would still be in place.

Jungle cruise - is in need of some updating, really a overhaul would be in order.

Agree with most of the above

Animal Kingdom could use something else but I dont agree with re-doing DinoLand- I think that is fine the way it is..

Maybe something "more kid friendly" at Epcot, My son loves Nemo there and we like some of the adult stuff.

Definitely do not like Stitch- we never even do it anymore. Never do Tom Sawyer Island anymore. Tomorrowland could use some updates but enjoy everything else. Does anyone know if Country Bears will re-open? That was just a childhood favorite and hate to see it go!

DHS- My 2nd favorite park but think that Lights Motor Action needs to either be chopped or do a different routine. I love The Great Movie Ride but think it might could use some updating and a different dialogue.

The MDE app says Country Bears is open... Almost positive I saw it open when we were there on Saturday. I just know with the latest refurbishment, it was shortened quite a bit.

And I agree with Stitch & GMR!

As for resorts, I'd like to for the rooms at Poly get a facelift. I can't justify spending the amount to stay there with the way the rooms/beds look.

Same with All Star resorts ... Sports isn't that bad but Movies and Music are outdated and run-down.

I knew someone would bring this up! Carousel of Progress is such crowd-dividing ride; you either absolutely love it, or can't stand it. I happen to love it. Only downside is that the theme song is always stuck in your head for days after!

Swiss Family Robinson has got to go! Stitch needs to be updated, although my boys love that! Indiana Jones needs to be updated to a different movie franchise type stunt show... Muppets could us a good update as well to give it that old Muppet Show feel but kinda like they're trying to revive it as in the movie... Pooh needs a serious update, as does Peter Pan... LMA and backlot tour need to go and dedicate that whole area to Pixar

I love the last scene on carousel of progress. I'm always so happy to see that
Philharmagic is so magical to me

Get rid of the Ellen ride? Where would I nap then? It's so boring
Yes, reopen wonders of life!!

My 19 year old will cry when they take away Indiana Jones. I could leave him there all day and he would be fine
Street performers. Please do!

Does anyone play those midway games?

We used to back in the day. When it is not crowded, we would put three of our girls on one game by themselves . Guaranteed win every time! Also when the "ring the bell" used to be open (years ago) That was a guaranteed win for many people. They closed that quickly.
