8 Attractions We Wish Walt Disney World Would Update

Walt Disney World is a truly amazing vacation destination with four theme parks, two water parks, Disney Springs, and over two different Disney Resorts featuring attractions, entertainment, dining, and shopping. Part of what makes Walt Disney World such an amazing place to vacation is the constant updating that occurs, making each return trip full of new and different experiences. Walt Disney World is constantly updating throughout the property in order to keep things fresh and to introduce new and exciting experiences for guests to enjoy. While updating is constantly occurring, sometimes an attraction can go quite some time without an update if the concentration is on other areas of the parks. While an attraction is waiting for a long period of time for an update, it obviously can become a little dated to the point where guests notice. These attractions are definitely enjoyable, but in need of some updating in the near future. Here are eight attractions that guests wish Walt Disney World would update.

8. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom is home to some mega popular attractions like Space Mountain, as well as some that could use a little updating. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is by no means an unpopular attraction, but it is due for some much needed updates. The attraction brings guests into Star Command where they are needed to help defeat the Evil Emperor Zurg. Guests board cars that feature laser shooters and take aim at Z shaped targets to score points and attempt to be a galactic hero. While the experience is enjoyable, the laser shooters frequently experience some problems where they don’t seem to line up with where guests are aiming or sometimes even work at all.

7. Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor

Also found in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland is an attraction that will leave guests chuckling. Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor invites guests into Monstropolis where Mike, Sully, and friends have discovered that the power of laughter is stronger than the power of screams. Therefore, a string of monsters perform comedy routines to make guests laugh and collect power for the city. While the jokes are definitely hysterical, they are very often repeated from show to show making it a little hard to fully enjoy the experience time and time again.

6. Mickey’s Philharmagic

Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom is home to such classic attractions as Peter Pan’s Flight and It’s A Small World as well as one that could definitely use some updating. Mickey’s Philharmagic brings guests into a massive theater where they are supposed to enjoy a 3 D orchestra conducted by Mickey. Donald gets his hands on Mickey’s magical hat and soon chaos ensues as Donald is immersed in musical numbers from some of the most beloved Disney films. While Mickey’s Philharmagic is enjoyable, it is definitely time to update the film and add in some new musical numbers and experiences.

5. Country Bear Jamboree

Another classic attraction in the Magic Kingdom that is due for some updates can be found in Frontierland. The Country Bear Jamboree brings guests into a cozy hall for a show stopping performance that will leave them clapping and stomping along. The show is comprised of many different bears who perform musical numbers that perfectly suit their personalities. While the show and music are fun to experience, some of the animatronics and jokes could do with some updating.

4. Living with the Land

Epcot’s Future World is supposed to be home to innovation and technology, but there are definitely some attractions that are in need of updates. Living with the Land is a great boat ride that brings guests through a series of environments and beautiful greenhouses to showcase how the land can be beautiful and thrive in many ways. While the greenhouses and different environments are informative, there are certain portions of the attraction that could use updating including one scene that simply features large screens playing agricultural tidbits on loop.

3. Journey into Imagination with Figment

Also found in Epcot’s Future World is an attraction that is supposed to tap into the imagination of guests. Journey into Imagination with Figment brings guests into the Imagination Institute where an open house is being held in the sensory labs. Figment the lovable purple dragon soon takes over the tour and shows guests how imagination works best when set free. While the premise is enjoyable, guests definitely feel that Journey into Imagination with Figment could use a little more, well, imagination. An update is definitely needed and many guests hope that it will bring the return of Dreamfinder!

2. Muppet Vision 3D

Also found in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is an attraction that features a timeless sense of humor that also needs some updates. Muppet Vision 3D brings guests into the laboratories of the Muppets where they have discovered the spirit of 3D. While the 3D jokes and corny humor of the Muppets is always amusing, the film itself and most of the special effects are in need of some care and updating.

1. It’s Tough To Be A Bug

Disney’s Animal Kingdom features a wonderful 3D show housed in the roots of the Tree of Life. It’s Tough To Be A Bug magically shrinks guests down to the size of bugs and showcases to them how bugs are helpful and not harmful. The experience is hosted by Flik from A Bug’s Life and is charming but starting to feel a little tired. The experience is definitely in need of some updates to keep it popular with guests.
