The Top 5 WDW Attractions that need to be Reimagined By Cameron Ramos

Fans of Walt Disney World have had a lot to be excited about the past few years in terms of new, state of the art attractions coming to our parks the past few years, and more coming soon. We’ve been lucky enough to see a whole Fantasyland expansion, fun rides like Toy Story Midway Mania, Frozen Ever After, and soon we will have new Star Wars and Toy Story lands over at Hollywood Studios. These are all amazing additions coming to central Florida, but there are still plenty of current attractions that could and need to be reimagined, for various reasons. Without trying to sound like I’m being too greedy, here are the 5 attractions I’d like to see Walt Disney World improve in the near future.

1. Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable
Don’t get me wrong; I love the fact that EPCOT does its best to make educational topics fun. Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable just doesn’t do it for me. The 13 minute long film came to EPCOT in 1995, and focus on conservation topics, and the importance of trying to preserve our natural resources, and animals homes. This is a topic I can 100% get behind, but this film isn’t entertaining. Disney tried making it kid friendly by having characters from The Lion King star in the video, but it’s just so boring. Disney should figure out a way to revamp this attraction, and have guest leaving the theater excited and wanting to help save the planet in any way they can, once they step out of the theater.

2. Ellen’s Energy Adventure
Another EPCOT educational attraction that is just very outdated. The attraction features Ellen DeGeneres and Bill Nye the Science Guy as they explore how we get our energy, and what new ways we can harvest energy in the future. The film used in the attraction was premiered in 1996, about 20 years ago. It’s a very boring 40+ minute attraction, and right now the best use for it is to take a nice nap on a long bench in a dark, air-conditioned room. I have no idea what I’d rather see be done with this attraction, but I do know that someone who gets paid to come up with cool ideas should take a shot at it.

3. Journey into Imagination with Figment
I took my first trip to Walt Disney World in March of 2000, when I was 5 years old, and I unfortunately never had the pleasure of getting to ride Journey into Imagination, or meet the Dreamfinder. Instead I was left with Journey into Imagination with Figment, and that’s the saddest thing in the entire world. It’s a shame because I am a big Figment fan, but the poor little guy gets such a bad rep from people my age because we never got to appreciate him in all his glory in his original attraction. I’d love it if Walt Disney Imagineering could bring back the original attraction that everyone loved so much, so that the next generation of guests can experience the same attraction that Disney fans over the years know and love.

4. Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama
There is almost nothing I hate in Disney World more than Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama at Animal Kingdom. I know that this isn’t an attraction, but I want everything in this mini land within Dinoland USA gone. I know that they are trying to make it look like a carnival that just stopped in town, but that’s what I hate about it. This isn’t an amusement park; it’s Disney World! There is a good chunk of land here that you could create a really cool adventure ride with non-cartoon looking dinosaurs, or if you want to keep it kid friendly, then create a family friendly dark ride version of Dinosaur that isn’t as terrifying. I just can’t stand having this place in an otherwise wonderfully themed park.

5. Muppet*Vision 3-D
Yet another out of date attraction from the early 90s. Don’t get me wrong, I still get a kick out of the one-liners from this 3-D show at Hollywood Studios, but the video is so old, and it looks it. With newer Muppet movies coming out recently, it would be cool to have a brand new show featuring the beloved characters from Jim Henson’s famous brand. It looked like this may have been going away with Hollywood Studios’ new Star Wars land that is being built, but now it looks like it is staying for a while. With Pizza Planet being re-themed to a Muppets themed pizza joint just across the way from Muppet*Vision, it is more than likely that this attraction will be sticking it out for a while. All I’m saying is that the least they could do is give us a new show!
