Unfortunately I never had a chance to ride it, but whenever my family and I travelled to WDW way back in the day, 20,000 Leagues always looked so cool. Just sat and watched this video of the attraction and it makes me wish I had ridden it before they closed it...

Thanks for posting that! I rode this a couple times as a kid, but of course by the time I had kids it was gone.

I'd still change Tomorrowland in DLR so we can get the Peoplemover back. Seeing the track unused for so many years is upsetting.

Definitely Mr Toad. Just went to DL and I made sure we went on it since my kids never got to experience it in Florida.

This is not really a change back, but a fix up. I hate the big trees in front of the Haunted Mansion in FL. You can't get a good view of the building. Because of it, Disney always uses old images in their postcards and other media because it is blocked now. So change back to smaller trees. I want to see it.

Oh also the Original Test Track. The new version is such a disappointment

I miss old test track, and I am sad I never got to to 20,000 leagues also.

I don't think I ever was on Mr Toad either, and if I was I don't remember :(

Yea, I do too, I guess that dates me as well.

I would def bring that back, I remember 20,000 leagues as well, but it was never my favorite. I thought they did a good job in DL with Nemo though.

I would bring back the original Journey Into Imagination.

Old school EPCOT Center, oh, please, for the love of all the little hidden Mickeys...

I'd find a better place for Soarin' at WDW (maybe even get a few country flight films on rotation and go put it next to World Showcase somewhere), but I would definitely restore Seas, Imagination, Spaceship Earth (if it doesn't start out with Jeremy Irons' "grand and miraculous spaceship," I'm not a fan), Wonders of Life, Energy, and Communicore. They could've done a lot better with those buildings than they're doing now. Innoventions makes me think of cheesy tradeshow displays. I miss World of Motion, but the automotive sponsorship was awfully strong in that one -- I'd rather have the future of transportation than the future of cars. Living Seas is a particular sore spot with me. One time I had the pleasure of listening to a lecture from an older woman who happened to be a pavilion cast member. She went into detail about what children and everyone else would enjoy and why the original pavilion was not up to snuff. I can't really think of a kind and/or convincing way to tell someone like that about my adoring the original place when I was six (nevermind that six-year-old me couldn't do opinion surveys of all visitors and present detailed data about the state of the pavilion to Michael Eisner, but I digress), but all the awesome stuff in there made me fall in love with all kinds of things oceanographic. I miss the room next to the Seacabs with the JJ animatronic.

I think, in the process of "updating" EPCOT to Epcot, they've made everything closer to "Contemporary World" than "Future World." Stupid Flash animations playing in the backs of the SSE seats notwithstanding, there's not much of the future at hand, unless you count things that are shortly due for market (and just about to become outdated for even "Contemporary World"). The thought of that really makes me miss Horizons. The far-flung, optimistic future visions are gone, and I mourn that, because I think we could use a little more of that today. It seems as though people don't want to look up and around at what could be anymore, but they're all aflutter over what's in an app store. Sad, really. All of the imagination and cohesion of the original has contracted into I-know-not-what. If I'm feeling really cynical, I think that the World Showcase food and drink sales are expected to take up that "attraction slack" (at least, once the Fastpasses run out).
