I agree Muppets 3D needs some updating as does most of HS. I used to love HS and now I can't spend a day there without getting bored.
Finally did Tom Sawyer island and will never do it again.
It's a Small World just needs a bit of TLC - it has been looking a bit sad.

I love Peter Pan the way it is for some reason.
I agree that some more rides in WS at EPCOT would be great, but I believe that is left up to each country to invest in their own area. Norway spent a ton of money believing it would increase tourism - but I LOVE Maelstrom and the trolls!

Sounds Dangerous - replace with Star Wars Jedi Training (led by Yoda using "Turtle Talk" technology)


MK:

Stitch - remove! Either restore Alien Encounter or put something new in the space.
Speedway - replace, I think, with more of a simulator racing ride that has a higher ridership capacity.

Pooh/Peter Pan - refurb if possible to have multiple sets of identical (or even different) on different levels tracks to increase capacity


DAK:

I must be one of the few who like the park as-is; routine maintenance plus announced expansions should be sufficient for now.


Epcot:

Nothing that hasn't already been said except the usual call for more WS countries.



My only disagreement there is that "Tomorrowland" could work quite well as a nostalgic look at what the future was "supposed" to be like, from the perspective of the 50's-70's. But there needs to be a decision made at a high level -- is it a look at the tomorrow that is to come, or a look at the "tomorrow" of the past? Pick one and stick with it, but don't mix and match.
I completely agree about Stitch. I LOVED Alien Encounters. I can't believe they took it out to put Stitch burping chili dogs into my face. Gross! They need to get rid of that asap.

As for Epcot, I think they could update/add more rides to Future World. I don't go to World Showcase for the rides. I go to experience the "culture" and just relax.

AK needs more rides. I feel there is so much space being wasted there. The rides they have there are great! We just need more of them.

HS does need a lot of updating. I happen to love the Muppet Vision 3D and Indiana Jones. I do really enjoy the Great Movie Ride but I agree that it could be updated. More rides would be nice as well!

Another one for getting rid of stitch. It's not even that old and it seems outdated to me. I might take heat for this but I think buzz needs an update. It might be because I am so much fonder of TSM.
I think AK is great but they definitely could do something better with DinoLand.
Also these days I do find myself getting bored of Epcot. Test track just doesn't have the appeal it used to since the new update.
HS in general seems neglected and could use a little TLC. Would be awesome to get some new scenes in the GMR.

Oh NO! Please do not get rid of Swiss Family Treehouse. I would love a ride for Swiss Family Treehouse as well.

These are my ideas...

--MK--
1. Replace Stitch with Alien Encounter (or anything else for that matter)
2. Restore COP back to the Worlds Fair/Disneyland edition with the EPCOT model at the end
3. Remove the rails from the Speedway, convert to Autopia (use at your own risk)
4. Put Splash under for a few (6) months for a COMPLETE refurb.
5. Restore GiftShopLan... I mean Main Street back to the original (MSB, Exhibition Hall, Cinema, Penny Arcade, ...)
6. Do something with the wait times at PP (2 hours, really?)

--EPCOT--

1. Restore Journey into Imagination
2. Restore Test Track
3. Restore WOL or make a sequel to Horizons
4. Soarin' Over Florida???

--DHS-- (Where do I begin?)

1. BULLDOZE THAT HAT!!!!!
2. Update the Muppets Technology, don't remove the attraction altogether.
3. Make something out of the Backlot
4. Re-open the Animation Studio
5. Remove Cars from LMH (It's Cars EVERYTHING nowadays)
6. Muppet Land???

--DAK--

1. FIX THE YETI (on a side note, here is a funny broken-Yeti bashing video)
2. Why Avatar? Why not Brazil? All of the Brazilians will think they're home and decide to go there instead of WDW

MK: I'd love to see both Stitch's Great Escape and the Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor bulldozed. Replace them both with a great dark ride like Monster's Inc Ride and Go Seek from Tokyo Disneyland.

HS: Muppets is good the way it is. I'm sure that Disney is hesitant to update it because it was Jim Henson's last project before he passed away. Disney should, however, get rid of that damn stupid hat.

Epcot: Captain EO, as a film, is adorable and should be spared. (I have yet to experience the new attraction.) Test Track 2.0 was a waste of time and funds. Looks like crap without the 'car test' theme and the two funny narrators. Now it just seems cold. I support retaining the theme of Future World as the 'what if?' of years past while maintaining a few attractions focused on what the future looks like to us now.

Three words: STAR WARS AREA.

AK: Fix Disco Yeti. Keep AvatarLand to a minimum, if at all-I like the idea of Pandora at night, but it just doesn't mesh with Disney-and bring in Beastly Kingdom.

Our kids love them too. We are also there early morning with a guaranteed win crowd level.

MGM-

Get rid of the hat. Move it out in front of the gates if they want to keep it.
New attractions/rides.
Update attractions- Muppets, Great Movie ride, etc
Bring back the street performers. If character meet n' greets are a cheap way to keep people occupied this should be too.

Now that the kids are too old for Playhouse Disney we pretty much grab TSM FPs, ride RnR and ToT, ride TSM, then StarTours and leave for the day by 11:30. B&B, Muppets, the stuntshows, and backlot tour, VotLM, and Fantasmic we can recite by heart at this point. During the holidays we'll come back around 8pm and walk thru the Osbourne lights

MK-

Bye bye Stitch
Fix Splash
TL speedway can go too. A Disney Quest type attraction would work here
When the princess M&G in Snow's space is done bring back the film on Walt
Bring back the penny arcade and cinema on Main St
better TS dining options
Bring back Spectro Magic

EP

Captain EO and EEA are so badly dated
Illuminations needs to be replaced too
Restore Journey into Imagination
A new film for Soarin. Digital please all the scratches are getting so noticeable
You've got the same issue that AK does, there are only 2 rides people really care about.
Get some of the children's museum designers to redo/beef up the educational stuff in the pavilions. Bring in a bit more of the Disney Quest technology

AK-

Fix the Yeti
Obviously it needs more rides to keep people around.

Resorts-

Bring back deluxe service at the deluxe resorts

Food-

bring the TS food back up to its past standards
