I used to think that Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland at Disney World paled in comparison to Disneyland's. But not any more. It's very impressive what the Imagineers have done there. I can't wait to see it for myself. Disneyland's is just fine the way it is. It's last major refurb was back in 1983. Which was a vast improvement from what was there before.
I think Fantasyland is just fine the way it is. The only thing I might suggest would be to strip out the Motor Boat Cruise area for a new attraction. There is a lot of real estate there that could be repurposed into something really significant.

However, it looks better than having an empty space where the apple used to be because some low-life decided to steal it.
I agree with you, though, that they could spruce up the effect a little bit.
"You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."
Autopia and FNSV uses far too much land for a park that needs expansion space. Since they did such a poor job on FNSV and they have no plans to redo it into something better or maintain what they have on a consistent basis, Disney should just retire the attraction and expand Fantasyland.
The next thing would be converting the Skyway into a meet and greet so it's out of the way and in an appropriately themed location.
First things first, get ride of the Tinkerbell meet and greet! Her and her fairy friends need to just be evicted ASAP! The franchise is not sticking so just stop trying to make it work! Bring back my fishy friend, Ariel! They should also do a flume ride of Tangled telling the story of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider and the final show room scene would be the laterns surrounding you, that would just be BREATHTAKING to see something like that in person! They should also improve the Village Haus, the menu is awful! And I like the idea of adding Rapunzel's tower in the corner where the Skyway station is, they don't even need to add a meet and greet just something beautiful to look at.

Small world mall becomes an old london cobble stone street. The motor boat cruise area becomes Mary Poppins dark ride. Small world facade gets re-themed to look like the glass palace that housed the old great exhibition. It would tie in the worlds fair multi cultural theme back to FL. FL theatre becomes e ticket, perhaps a fantasia, sorcerer mickey, or epic mickey themed attraction. Show building behind toon town. It woud share space with Frontier expansion in circle D.
In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.
