    Default Rides they should get rid of

    I saw another forum about over rated and under rated rides and it had me thinking: what are the rides in each park that you think should get replaced with something new? Here are a few of mine that we usually skip:

    MK: Small world
    Stitch's great escape (I really hate this one)
    Tomorrowland speedway
    Tiki birds

    Epcot: universe of energy
    The circle of life

    Hollywood studios: American idol
    Sounds dangerous starring drew Carey

    Animal kingdom: Flights of wonder
    Primeval whirl and the whole carnival theme

    Oh my! Small World and The Tiki Room are two of my absolute faves, I watch them on youtube quite frequently to get my fix

    My vote would go to
    MK:
    Tomorrow Land Speedway
    DHS:
    Lights, Motor, Action!

    Tomorrowland Speedway
    Country Bears

    That space at DHS where they keep putting stuff like the Narnia "attraction", which is now going to be....I don't even remember what they claim to be putting there. It doesn't matter. It's like the space is cursed. It's always awful.

    Absolutely agree with Tomorrowland Speedway. We avoid that area completely due to the noise and smell...it's like listening to (and smelling the fumes of)a fleet of horribly running lawn mowers. Although, I'd actually prefer they just upgrade it to a less noisy version of it instead of getting rid of it altogether.

    I'm hesitant to say they should get rid of anything until they have a planned replacement. Even if I don't like a particular attraction, I like to think there is someone there at any given moment taking some of the crowds from where I am.

    I agree Sherri. There is plenty that I'm not thrilled with, but if it has a line, those are people not taking up space where I'm heading!

    I'm glad Disney doesn't listen to everybody with an opinion. Saw where someone wants to dump Flights of Wonder - I like that attraction. It's not one of my favs, but I catch it once a trip. Also, my kids love Tomorrowland Speedway, so I'd hate to see that go away. And the Country Bears and Muppets 3D? How on earth does anyone think we should get rid of those?

    The only one I think should be replaced is Universe of Energy and maybe Stitch - but that's only if something good was waiting to go right in.

    Tomorrowland Speedway is one of my favorites from my childhood....great memories of riding it with my dad. I'm always against ditching the old rides because of memories. I'd be in favor of changing them to electric vehicles, though, based on the suggestion to make them quieter. More environmentally friendly, too!

    I'm not a fan of the Stich attraction, but the Alien Encounter was absolutely terrifying. Let's not bring that thing back!!!

    well she did say "things that they should replace with something new"
    I think it goes without saying that no one hates any ride enough that they would prefer a blank space.

    NONE! Every single ride and attraction has its own following and those who love it. Heck, the original poster mentioned 3 of my favourites!

    I personally like stich but what I think should go is The Teacups. Always feel terrible afterwards but it looks so fun so I cant resist.

    Indeed, you are correct. It's still hard for me to say "get rid of this" when I know there are people who love it. Like It's a Small World, such an iconic ride.

    But yes, I think not many people would actually miss Sounds Dangerous (I think it's already gone?) or Stitch's Great Escape. Even if replacements took some time to come around.

    Maybe Universe of Energy....but only if they replace it with a re-build of Horizons...

    And as has been said, keeping ones I don't like draws crowds from the ones I love.

    Wow, you people don't like a LOT of stuff. I truly love most of it. My big exception - Primeval Whirl. There are some things I don't like to ride simply because being a big girl, I don't fit well but I still enjoy the attractions when I squeeze in.

    The only rides/attractions I would get rid of would be Stitch and Alladin's Carpets.

    I only went on Stitch once and that was one hot dog burp to many.

    As far as the Carpets go, well look, if you want a spining carnival ride, you already have the dual Dumbos and the Astro Orbiter. I got it, the ride doesnt take up a lot of space and I really dont know what could go in that space to replace it. But I think its one of the worst rides at MK. Just my opinion, your milage may vary.
