Lion King. The building was originally an open-air theater, and constructed quickly when AK needed something as a placeholder while they decided what to do with Beastly Kingdom because Universal had unveiled something too similar. Now that we are getting Avatarland (cool, but I still want a Beastly Kingdom, with dragons and unicorns (Like in the parking lot)) Camp M/M will likely disappear in its entirety. All those buildings were done quickly and cheaply. Just look at the sinks in the rest rooms.

Indiana Jones isn't going anywhere just yet. It's still a solid draw, even in slower times of year.

Why would you want to see the Tiki Room go? The older attractions like that are what make Disney World worthwhile. If they replace all of the old stuff with new stuff it will really take away the Magic that is Disney World.

As much as I like progress in animation and such, newer shows tend to be bleak and sarcastic.. they try too hard. There is magic in simplicity so for me, the Jungle Cruise and the Haunted Mansion and the Tiki Room and so many other classic rides are the reason that I love vacationing in WDW so much. Avatar Land seems like a horrible and very late idea. I do look forward to some more Star Wars and the hope of Cars Land and Monsters Inc making an appearance (especially if it means getting rid of American Idle) It would also be nice to put figment back to the way that is was and perhaps give a subtle and respectful update to Carousel of Progress.

I've always thought CoP should have the first few rooms, describing our history, left alone, original animatronics and all, while the last room should be updated every couple of years to the max and show newer and newer 'future' stuff, including updated animatronics (like Sparrow in PotC) or even holograms (like Sparrow in the new DHS attraction, or Christopher Walken in the Disaster attraction at Universal). It would be a way to maintain a large portion of the classic element of the ride while once in a while giving it a new breath of air.

Yea, Disney can't destroy the Classics! Tiki Room, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, etc, shouldn't go anywhere, I can see CoP getting chopped. I like your idea, have the first half the "original" and then make the latter rooms very futuristic. And like PotC, freshening up the classics right will help and it works.

Ugh I hope Beauty & The Beast isn't replaced with a Tangled show...I really didn't care for that movie! What about a Princess & the Frog? That was way more adorable out of the two - with much better music, too!

I LOVED Tangled. It would be a great change! Princess and the Frog was cute but hasn't been nearly as popular and I know many people that found it too scary and didn't like the VooDoo element

I'm not entirely sure that Princess and the Frog is as unloved as people think. The most common costume I saw Halloween night at the parks besides Jack Skellington was Facilier, the bad guy from this film. Probably saw at least a dozen of him. He was also featured in a lot of the night time shows now with his song Friends on the Other Side. I'd almost argue that he's more popular than Tiana.

I am pretty sure that they leave this open as a tribute to Walt and I think they will continue to as the space it takes up is so small. It really is a miracle of planning.

They really should update the last scene though.
