    I wish they would put as much effort into U.S. parks as they do overseas. Florida is in desperate need of several NEW attractions not just re-imagined ones.

    Maybe European cardboard is more expensive?

    Well, they're working on at least two new attractions in Epcot with the Remy ride and the Guardians coaster. They recently put a new movie in the Land pavilion, and they're renovating the area around Spaceship Earth.

    In Hollywood studios, they recently opened two entire new lands with new attractions, and most recently opened the only ride in any Disney park featuring Mickey Mouse.

    In the Magic Kingdom they're building the Tron Lightcycle coaster, which looks amazing. The new Fantastyland is beautiful, and while it's a few years old, still feels new.

    Animal Kingdom, while having Avatarland for a while now, could use some more love. Especially over in the Dinoland USA section.

    Not sure what else you want.

    To sum up, in the last two years, and over the next two years, Walt Disney World will have 8 new rides (not reimagined rides) open:

    Star Wars Smugglers' Run
    Star Wars Rise of the Resistance
    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway
    Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
    Slinky Dog Dash Coaster
    Alien Swirling Saucers (OK, this is a terrible example, but I threw it in because it wasn't a refurbed attraction)
    Tron Light Cycle Coaster

    In the last five years (or so) it has opened four new "lands":

    Star Wars: Galaxy's End
    Toy Story Land
    Avatar Land
    New Fantasyland

    They're working on the front half of Epcot, and hopefully won't scale it back too much due to the pandemic. They also are redoing the nighttime spectacular at Epcot, which apparently includes daytime enhancements such as fountains out on the lake, I believe.

    That's pretty good, I think. We haven't been to Walt Disney World since 2017, and there is already a ton of new stuff we will experience for the first time when we go in May. Very excited.
