    Are there any attractions or shows in the parks that you think are really dated now and need to be replaced?

    I love CoP and would never want it replaced I do think it should be updated a little, you know, add or change the last scene. But definitely not replaced.

    Never replace - update and renovate. :D

    Star Tours needs a revamp for sure.

    CoP final scene definitely needs updating! Otherwise, still love it! :)

    A number of the attractions just need a good cleaning or something--sound isn't quite synchronized to action or images are fuzzy at times.

    There are a number of attractions that I really don't like--don't think they particularly belong at WDW--but others love them, so I won't mention which ones I wouldn't mind seeing disappear and be replaced with something more relevant. :D

    The end scene needs to be revamped since it's essentially the past now.

    Start Tours and Honey I Shrunk the Audience most definately :yes:

    I love the charm of CoP and it doesn't claim to be any great attraction so it can stay in my book

    Jungle Cruise should turn into Jungle Book cruise with animatronics from both the Jungle book and the Lion King and any other animals of that ilk - you could even have Timon doing a recorded version of the 'Jokes'

    Figment is rubbish and should be redone 'again' - so much potential and so badly executed

    Honey I shrunk the audience is outdated both as 3D technology and as pop culture as the films are old now and not aquired legend status like Star Wars- it should go the way of Captain Eo

    Universe of Energy should reopen as a more 'green' friendly attraction rather than the thinly veiled oil advert it was

    Wonders of life needs to be renivated I miss Cranium Command - body wars was just awful

    The backlot Studio tour needs to recapture the magic - over the years so many props and parts have been whittled away they may as well just call it ' Catastrophy canyon and a drive through some wardrobes'

    there are more i'm, sure

    Spot on!

    Great idea for the Jungle Cruise.....I love it. Don't think Walt would like it though. That was one of his babies.

    Got me thinking (Ellen's Energy Universe) about greener and more current. I think something should go in on Earth's climate change. Just my two cents.

    I am probably just being thick but... does CoP stand for Pirates of the caribbean? I think that ride was O.K, it has the same charm as Jaws in Universal studios- it's really outdated but I think that's what makes it special and kind of 'kitsch'

    There where a few rides I'd like to see updated really :yes: I think Soarin' should perhaps use Google street view... Just kidding :point:

    On a more serious note... I think the maelstrom in Epcot (Is it Norway?) is terrible. :yes: It's just rubbish... except for the hidden mickey that they have which I spotted.:thumbsup:

    Secondly, I'd quite like to see Kali River rapids updated. I just didn't see the point in getting wet for it!! Nothing exciting happened :unsure: Perhaps they should add in some characters or something a bit more fun than burning wood :unsure:
