    I just dont like the attraction concept of Stitch or Alien Encounter. Being trapped in a seat to have stuff breathing on me and pushing me in complete darkness, when it's not even a ride, is a stimulation nightmare for me. And the Stitch version makes it even more irritating because of various comical but not so many smells you are exposed to.
    But at least Alien Encounter was supposed to be scary. Stitch is too silly to be enjoyed by adults, and too scary to be enjoyed by kids. Its a really poor retrofit without a niche.
    In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.

    I think everyone has said the bad attractions over and over again. There are lots of places in WDW that need work. My biggest gripe is seeing empty buildings like the Wonders of Life or the Odyssey Restaurant in Epcot. There shouldn't ever be empty attractions in a Disney Park unless they are being reconfigured into something better. I would also like to see DHS and AK to get a DCA type facelift.

    I agree, adding more attractions (or replacing them at least) should take greater precedence over removal.

    Re: What would you take out of WDW??

    I am surprised no-one mentioned the one thing that ABSOLUTLY needs to go. The bus system. The so-called "attractions" listed had thier detractors and thier fans. I do like Mission Space though. I remember AE and SGE is close enough to it to be nearly the same show. Tiki is better at DL but the birds do add some laughs. DTD can be avoided, its a shopping area anyway. The best thing there is the Circ show.

    Leave the attractions alone and spend the money on a BETTER transportation system. A standard MTA is not what I want to see at WDW. THE BUSSES MUST GO!

    It's really about how it replaced Horizons. An omnimover ride that was more about the future than anything else in Future World replaced by a thrill ride simulator that makes people throw up, get head aches, and even kill people.

    Indy Speedway - Either remove it or update it. It's a cheap attraction available at any carnival or fairground, and it doesn't belong in Tomorrowland.

    The Enchanted Tiki Room - Pointless. Not memorable at all.

    Carousel of Progress - I'm pretty sure it has the lowest attendance of any of the attractions in the Magic Kingdom (maybe even all of WDW), and it's beyond dated.

    Country Bear Jamboree - I've never liked it. I think they could put in a show based around the music from The Princess and the Frog and join it with Liberty Square and it would do well.

    Stitch's Great Escape - I don't know what they could replace it with, but the whole thing is just not up to par with the rest of Disney's shows.

    I also think they need to update the scenes you see on the Railroad and Tom Sawyer Island.

    DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS:
    The sorcerer's hat.

    Sounds Dangerous - Seems like it's never open and it's not a good show anyway.

    Honey I Shrunk The Kids Play area - Should be rethemed to A Bug's Life or something at the very least.

    Studio Backlot Tour - Just get rid of it. The original ride was great, but this shortened one's just embarrasing. Build a big ride there, one that could rival Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.

    Journey Into Narnia - Most pointless "attraction" at WDW. Knock down the wall and expand One Man's Dream or something.

    The Magic of Disney Animation - This hasn't been updated in over a decade. The last half is a glorifed meet-and-greet area anyway.

    EPCOT:
    Ellen's Energy Adventure - The film is dated. It would be nice if they could get Ellen to film a new one.

    Journey Into Imagination with Figment - I think Epcot as a whole would benefit from an entirely new ride here.

    ANIMAL KINGDOM:
    Get rid of everything in Dinoland except for Dinosaur and Finding Nemo: The Musical (why is that even in Dinoland in the first place?) I think it would be nice if they themed the front half where Nemo is to the sea and kept the back half focused on dinosaurs. Who knows, maybe they could put in the Finding Nemo submarine voyage there.
    We in DLR will take 'em!!!!!

    Oh, and about Nemo..... IT SUCKS!!! But you could take it if you want, we'll gladly take our original submarine Voyage back with better effects.

    Stitch and Tiki are in the lead. Interesting. Tiki Room didn't even need to be "Under New Management", it was fine the way it was. And Alien Encounter was just amazing, I bet all they had to do was add more signs and increase the hieght requirement. And if that didn't work, just make it part of the Cast Member's jobs to stop little kids from going on it.

    I'm kinda thinkin that for Alien Encounter a warning that says something along the lines of "This attraction is dark and scary" would suffice. My kids are smart enough to know what that means and not go on it... Just sayin.

    Re: What would you take out of WDW??

    Now that I attend on a semi regular basis:

    *) Kill the Tomorrowland Speedway (I'm actually okay with the WDW Speedway...if they actually HELD EVENTS THERE!). Get rid of it. Ride go-karts over in Kissimmee.

    *) That bleedin' hat over at the Studios. I love the studios--let's make it about Hollywood and bring back the Chinese Theatre as a landmark.

    *) Empty buildings-either bring back Wonders of Life (I like the theme and the show in the back, but the ride needs to be upgraded).

    *) All the hotels around Bay Lake. Nothing says, "save up your dough and give it to us!" when you are riding on the monorail. It's sad, really. The nicest hotels are right there, where you can be dragged through, as if they are saying, if you have more money, you could be staying HERE! Lose them.

    Peace out,
