Change is often a dreaded word for Disney fans. Disney is now asking which attractions we think are dated, insensitive, or iconic.

Keep Moving Forward

I (Donna) will admit that I cringe whenever an announcement comes of an upcoming refurbishment. Part of me wants Walt Disney World to remain the same. It is truly the “Most Magical Place on Earth.”

That being said, Walt Disney did not believe that he achieved perfection when Disneyland was created. He shared, Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.”

Walt Disney World and Disneyland are so special to each of us. However, over time some areas need a bit of a change. On a recent trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I was allowed to share which park attractions may need a change.

During a recent survey, Disney asked me to rate several attractions. The rankings were as follows:

  • Iconic: A classic- the park would not be the same without this attraction
  • Personal Favorite: my perfect day would definitely include this attraction
  • Immersive: able to “live” the story or be absorbed in the environment
  • Boring: interesting and feels like a waste of time
  • Dated: not relevant or in need of refurbishment
  • Insensitive: perceived as disrespectful to some audiences
  • Not familiar with this attraction

The survey then allowed me to rank several attractions and shows including Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Disney Junior Play and Dance!, Walt Disney Presents, Star Tours, For the First Tiem in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, Vacation Fun, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Slinky Dog Dash, Muppet Vision3D, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania!, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Beauty and the Beast- Live on Stage, Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Alien Swirling Saucers.

Interestingly enough, Voyage of the Little Mermaid was included in this grouping of attractions. You may remember this attraction has remained closed since 2020. Many have wondered if this attraction will reopen. This survey may help Disney decide if this attraction should return.

Interestingly, other attractions that remain closed were not included in this listing such as Jedi Training and Fantasmic! (that is set to return in the near future.)

What do you think of this survey? How would you respond to the attractions listed? Do you think this may mean a definite closure for the Voyage of the Little Mermaid? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
