1) Adventure thru inner space - absolute favorite ride from my first visit to Disneyland
2) Flying Saucers - was too late to ride this gem.
3) Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island - restore the island to circa 1970
Thought about Skyway, but even though it's a novel view of Disneyland, it's such an ordinary ride, something I can go up the road and ride in my local amusement park.
Considered Carousel of Progress, but not as a direct bring it back as it was, since you'd have to change the span of time that passes. The present room would be a far better showcase for tech than the current abomination that is wasting space in Tomorrowland.

Subs: I don't want to find Nemo, finding Jesus was hard enough!
Skyway: So that i can be a total moron and rock the bucket till i fall out and then my family sues Disneyland and ruins the fun for everyone else.
Adventures Thru Innerspace: Just so i can have sex during it.
In all seriousness i would like to see all the above return, but not a DL. They should take out Paradise Pier and rename it YesterPier and put all those rides there. DL should always grow not regress just because we want to recapture our childhood.

Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without saying, "You're making a scene!"
I wouldn't want to bring any of these back in their "original" form--I would want to use all our current technologies to update them and make them even better.
1--Adventures thru Innerspace. Using current CGI technology and 3D techniques, you could replace HISTA with a large audience version of the Innerspace storyline. It would completely rock, and I don't think it would be all that dreadfully expensive, to be honest. I don't know why they haven't done it already. All it would cost is the new film.
2--Country Bear Jamboree. Go back to the original show; but utilize the much improved state of robotics to make the bears more lifelike, update the backdrops, etc. with CGI, and recast the voices using well known "country" voices like Dolly Parton, Dwight Yoakum, Garth Brooks, etc. They should have done it 10 years ago, before Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings died. Think of how Big Al would have sung "Blood on the Saddle" in Cash's voice...But it's still what they should do. Get rid of that F***ING POOP ride. If they have to keep the Poop, replace something in ToonTown; but give us back our Bears.
3--Mission to the Moon/Mission to Mars Gut Innoventions, and using current technologies design new new , but INTERACTIVE seating system a'la America Sings concept; create new robot/animatronic 'scenes' for take off, the moon, Mars, other parts of the solar system, return and landing, with transitional CGI 'flight time' effects.
All three of these were totally ahead of their time, IN their time. It's time to bring them back and make them ahead of OUR time.
