Which Part of Magic Kingdom needs the most fixing/changing?

Post by DIAC1987 » Mar Wed 05, 2008 1:33 am

My opinion:

Main St.: It is indeed fine the way it is, I honestly wouldn't change it.

Adventureland: Needs the most changing. We need another attraction there, somehow, someway. Disneyland gets Indiana Jones, no fair! In Adventureland, we only have Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean. So much more potential can be reached with the theming of the jungle and the mystery and adventure that follows.

Frontierland: Tom Sawyer Island could use some improving or some changing--and then should actually be advertised! Its one of the most avoided/missed attractions in the whole park. I also once recommended that the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad should be extended and run through a portion of the island, but that would be veryyyyyy tough.

Liberty Square: Its fine the way it is.

Tomorrowland: My favorite part of the park, because of the TTA, Space Mountain, and when I was younger because of the Tomorrowland Speedway. If there is one thing that could use improvement, its the Tomorrowland Speedway--its time for a change.

Fantasyland: While I do want my 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea back yet it won't happen, I just would want the area that used to house the classic ride to be fixed to accommodate another attraction rather than a playground.

Mickey's Toontown Fair: I don't have any issues with the way it is now.

My personal answer: Adventureland

Tomorrowland needs to be fixed up to, y'know, actually stick to the stated theme.

Mickey's Temporary-Made-Permanent-Birthday-Fiasco needs to be either nuked from orbit or made into a real Toontown with broader appeal.

Tomorrowland wins because it's an integral park of the park, and most people probably wouldn't even notice if the Fair were vaporized tomorrow.

I agree with DIAC1987, and feel a new attraction like Indian Jones is needed in adventureland. Love this area just would like to spend more time there with another attraction. Anyways my 2cents worth.

I love Tomorrowland the way it is, but it doesn't invoke images of tomorrow. I think you can keep most of the attractions, but come on.... what is futuristic about the land itself? The talking/walking trash can?

Tomorrowland: They need to add something in the corner between COP and Buzz Lightyear. Right now there is an open area theater. I don't think it is used much other than special events ie. Mickey's Christmas Party.

Fantasyland is so sub-par compared to Disneyland's version and to what it used to be with 20K. It' needs a major new attraction (plenty of room on the old 20K site). More dark rides would be outstanding.

Tomorrowland would be a close second choice in this poll for me.

Adventureland and Tomorrowland are up there on my list just because of the influence recent movies have had on each of them.

Tomorrowland gets my vote though because at least Adventureland still evokes images of Adventure.

Tomorrowland gets my vote. It's my favorite part of the MK, which is possibly why I'm sensitive to it going off the rails. I'm okay with it not being 'futuristic' the way I'd expect Future World to be (not that it is, but that's a different thread..). I actually like the retro-future, looking back at tomorrow, Buck Rogers thing they had going on. I'd also be open to a change to a stylistic theme like the future in Meet the Robinsons; more futurey that retro, but still in keeping with the generally fantastical nature of the Magic Kingdom as opposed to what, in my opinion, Future World should be like with its more 'close future tech'.

What I can't stand is just dumping recent movie license stuff in there because you have the open buildings for it. I've said it before and I'll say it again; I'll give Stitch and Buzz a pass in TL, but get the monsters out of there. :evil:

The INDY Speedway NEEDS HELP! I think I was in the same car I was in with my grandfaather 20 years ago last week with my daughter.
I was also going to say snow white needs help, but they were doing something to it while we were there and only reopened it righ b4 we left.
and the number one hardest thing to find in Walt Disney World is.....5 consecutive smiling children!!
"excuse me, that is NOT a designated smoking area, now would you PLEASE kindly take your fat white trash hiney OUT of MY park!! Thank you!!"

This is an easy one for me. Tomorrowland all the way.

1. It currently has next to nothing to do with the future
2. Space Mountain, the biggest draw in the land, needs a refurb badly
3. Buzz Lightyear, the next biggest draw, is likely to seem outdated when Toy Story Mania opens
4. Stitch and Monster's Inc, the two newest offerings, are less than runaway hits.

Sure, Adventureland could use some sprucing up. But that land begins and ends with Pirates for me. And it just got worked on. Most of the different lands need some work. But Tomorrowland just screams out for it.

where is tomorrowland? It sounds like it's some subpart of Pixarland. Personally, I think they should fix the themeing of Pixarland, SpaceMountain has no part, nor does the Indicars SpaceMountain could get some Incredibleness would work and change the IndiCars into some Toystory themed Slot Cars...

I think it would work well...

i felt toonland needs som attention. Theres only one ride, which is geared towards small children. I haven't been to DL since 1988 but i know they have a few toon rides such as roger rabbit. Some more attractions there would be great!

can you please tell me why 2 attractions involving pixar makes the entire land pixarland??

The one thing I would be careful is to be certain not to cram to many attractions in. Keeping space between each helps maintain the magic and keep it different from all other parks. I would like tomorrowland to go back to the future. The 70's and 80's version of tomorrow land looked cool and futuristic. I understand their changes....but sometimes all the stone looks more like adventure land than tomorrow land. ( or a mix of them both.).
Bring back the straight lines and cool buildings.
