I'd love for an expansion of HM, BTMRR and Splash (esp. BTMRR. It just feels too short, IMO). Mmm... and the darkrides, although I know that probably won't happen, due to lack-of-space issues.
I think for HM, add rooms that were left out from concept drawings, like a trophy room, where the animal rugs and whatnot, are attacking the happy haunts present in the room. Maybe a kitchen scene.
BTMRR- lengthen the 3rd section, at the very least. It does so little, esp. compared to the first two sections. Maybe utilize the old MTTNW tunnels that are adjacent to the Mountain. ? IDK.
As far as Splash is concerned, I think we could use an expanded and extended Laughin' Place, and an entirely new scene featuring the song "Sooner or Later". I've even thought about enclosing the section of the ride after the final drop, before the Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah scene. Then, we could add some AAs, possibly of Brer Rabbit returning home, to the Briar Patch. One moment, we see him in danger by Brer Fox, and the next, he's safe at home. Ever wonder how he got there? Or how he got the ropes loosened?
My thoughts for the darkrides... make all of them have elevation changes, like in Pan and Alice. That really makes those two rides stand out from the rest. I guess it just adds another dimension to the ride (pun not intended). I think Alice could use a scene going through the White Rabbit's house, and showing something out of the Tweedle's stories (not just a painting on a short section of wall). Peter Pan could use a little more. Showcase the Indians more, perhaps? Include the "Following the Leader" scene and song? There's just so little in this ride, considering the 45 min. wait that usually accompanies it. Don't get me wrong- I do love Peter Pan. It's just a lot of waiting for a ride that feels really short. I don't feel that way with the other dark rides.
Perhaps, too, extending Gadget's Go Coaster? It's too short... perhaps demo Chip'n'Dale's treehouse and replace with an entrance to a show building, where we go through the Rescue Rangers' "hide-out"? Maybe bring in some other characters from the show, good and bad guys, to add more of a story to it? Heck- just give it a story!
IDK. Just my two cents, for now.

I always figured Brer Fox had just tossed him into the Briar Patch. The Briar Patch is his home... (Maybe they could install a frayed rope hanging from a thorn?)
What I'd like to see an update to the Jungle Cruise animatronics to make them more advanced. But with longer loops; rather than simply repeating the same motion over and over, it should be more like Pirates, where you can only catch a small part of any one show scene during a single ride. It would be nice to have more variety between jungle cruises...
I'd love to see some updated effects for Space Mountain. And not in the half-hearted underwhelming manner of 'Rockin.' What I'd really love is if the entire room were filled with suspended stars like the scene in Peter Pan's Flying Adventure where one is hovering over Neverland. Instead of / or as a supplement to the projected stars on the walls and support beams, the projectors could be utilized more for swirling vortexes and meteors. Also, some of the more thrilling moments such as the gravity suspending drops could be contained within a darkened tunnel with led lights which move rapidly in the opposite direction of the cars, carefully timed to the riders' entrance, similar to the effect in the tunnel which decelerates the cars at the end of the ride.
I'm sure there are numerous people who would much prefer the traditional effects. But I think keeping this attraction state of the art wouldn't hurt.
