Get rid of Stitch. Nasty, lame ride.

Love Muppets 3D, but it desperately in need of a refresh. Really stale looking by contemporary standards.

Lights Motors Action at DHS is just stale as can be.

Backlot tour is nice, enjoy some of the set construction sites, but beyond that, meh.

Stitch needs to go. Utilize the space for an actual ride- this thing was a hot mess of horrible. Just clean it out, and put something new there. Something that actually moves, and can be called a ride.

~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

I am on-board with getting rid of Stitch! I loved the Alien ride, but stitch is just nasty! I cannot get that smell out of my nose! YUCK! I do love Muppets, but technology can do so much more that it needs an update. As for the Poly, it is getting an update right now which makes me happy because we are staying there again this summer!

I think they should repair the ghosts in the air shafts of the drop in Tower of Terror. The clear molds are still there and visible in the day time when the windows are opened, but are lost in the dark. They used to light up during certain sequences. I remember that from my very first Disney trip 14 years ago and wish they would bring it back.

How can you read this? It doesn't have any pictures!

If you dont maintain your home and spend money on it each and every year it soon begins to look tatty and a great deal of work is needed, its also what's happened to the house of the mouse, the need to take a leaf out of Universals book. Sooner rather than later.

As much as it pains me to say this, I'd get rid of Stitch at MK and replace it with a new Stitch attraction. He's my favorite, so I would love to see him get an actual ride. And maybe some merchandise for adults while we're at it. And this sounds so bratty but I wish they hadn't wasted the money on New Fantasyland. BOG is fun to eat at but I really don't get the huge appeal of the area, I wish they had added in some better quality attractions. Belle's "attraction" is cute but the line moves slower than slow and I feel that it will lose popularity quickly since you can meet Belle in other places across WDW, and will end up being rethemed to something else in about 5 years. The voyage of the little mermaid is cute and nostalgic of the dark rides I grew up loving, but is something that should have come out in 1990-94, not in 2012. I'd also update the tomorrowland speedway and maybe incorporate Cars that way, not building an entire Carsland in another park.

I also wish they'd revamp the nighttime parade at MK and come out with something new. I loved Spectromagic and loathe the current main street parade and would love to see something new and innovative.

HS/MGM needs a total rehaul. It used to be our favorite park but the last 2 trips we haven't bothered going at all. My dad popped in to try out the revamped Star Tours but didn't stay for long. It's not even that the rides are terrible, it's just that the park seems to be neglected by Disney itself, traffic flow in this park is terrible (especially during Fantasmic line up and afterward), and we can get better thrills with smaller crowds and better park upkeep at Universal.

AK is actually pretty decent the way it is. Everest needs some help but otherwise the park isn't bad. I'd probably get rid of the bugs ride just because I hate it, but it's pretty decent quality wise. Same with Dinosaur. Hate the ride but it isn't terribly outdated or done poorly, it's just a personal preference. The park overall isn't something we spend a whole day at, it's just sort of there and as much as I loathe the idea of Avatar being in WDW, maybe it will increase some excitement and make it a full day park.

Epcot is now my favorite park and I wouldn't change too much, except I'd love to add actual attractions in some of the countries in the world showcase. I would get rid of Captain EO, it was a nice tribute but now it is time to let it go and put in something else.

The biggest thing I think Disney needs to ditch/update ASAP is their Limited Time Magic idea. I watch in horror every week or so as people on the Disney blog get excited to see and do things that used to happen daily at WDW.

I agree something needs to happen here,but I'm not sure there is enough room for a ride that moves I'm certainly not interested in a gravatron type ride and thats all I can see fitting.

* We love the CoP! But you are right...I can sing the song now, just reading about it. lol

* We also love the Muppets 3-D. Maybe udpated it but I wouldn't know how I would like it. We love all the 3-D theaters.

* AK - Dino land/carnival land, just needs to go.

* Not a fan of the AK parade.

* Love the tomorrow land speedway.

* Some may disagree with me here, but as much as I love space Mountain, update it so i don't get a headache every time I get off. I never remember why I only ride it once on my trips until I get off the ride. lol

* I have only stayed in the All-star Movies and Music resorts. Not much to compare it to, but I like the movies better. Maybe change the carpet...other stuff is OK.

* Remove American idol and the Sound something stage in HS. Also update the GMR. Kind of boring, but we like seeing the props of the movies while waiting.

* remove stitch....dumb, dumb dumb "ride".

That is all I can think of now.

Close the Stitch "attraction" in Magic Kingdom. It is a waste of space.
