I couldn't agree more about the classics not going anywhere. I am a veteran Disney Land guest, and I still am not over Disney Land removing Bear Country for Winnie the Pooh. While I adore the characters and story of Finding Nemo, I long for the original Submarine Voyage attraction. When there is a classic attraction that you have enjoyed and have fond memories of since your first visit to the parks, it always feels like something is missing every time you go.
With all of the land and room that Disney World resort has available to them, it would be senseless to remove Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion Tiki Room and CoP. I Personally have no recollection of ever experiencing CoP, but I can identify with passion for the classic attractions. Unless it is sitting completely empty all day, I say keep it open!

We love COP and go at least once a year. This was the first time the 5 year old really was interested but he really liked it. There are so few places that kids can see how things used to be. The 8 and 11 year old really like it too.

I hope they keep it forever and just keep updating that last scene.

I love this attraction and my little ones love it too just as I did as a kid. I hope they don't get rid of it. Expanding it with more futuristic ideas would be a great idea.

Last couple of years? Its been over a decade since the "Under new Management" upgrade at the Enchanted Tiki Room.

When Iago caught on fire a couple years ago they removed him and Zazu and restore the show to the original format.

I hear this rumor every couple of years. I hope it stays a rumor. It is one of my favorites that links directly back to Walt Disney.

We like to say that we have two seasons in Minnesota, winter and road construction.

So what's a little more construction to make more magic.

The bakery was closed last weekend when we were there.

Big Top Souvenirs in the revamped Fantasyland has them.

You can count me among those that that look forward to a decent cup of coffee in MK over tradition.

I love the classic rides, but I would cheer if Tiki Room went away. Maybe it's because I'm only 25 and don't have memories of retro Disney...but sitting on hard wooden benches watching dusty stuffed birds move back and forth is not my idea of magic.

I adore the jungle cruise, and it would be nice to see that ride get some love. A few new animals to show off new technology would be great.
