Love the music. Love the landscapes. They just need to bring it into the 21st century. Film the same scenes again with people who don't have 80s hair and clothes. (I'm looking at you, wedding scene.)
It wouldn't be difficult. They did it with the two Circlevision films. And Symbiosis.

Even so, the 1981 scenes in IDF don't stand out that much. They could certainly keep the money shots in.

That needs to change. Disney corporate may be ok with guests experiencing about 9 attractions per day at the MK, but American Adventure aside, I'd argue there's not one must-see attraction in WS. Disney's let the park go undeveloped for too long. Compelling attractions at the three other parks would eventually lessen the impact on MK as crowds spread out.
It just depends on one's opinion. Must see is very subjective. I would argue that all of the current attractions in WS are must see, at least in my opinion. Each vacation we spend 2.5 days just at EPCOT. American Adventure is also my least favorite attraction in WS. I love the current WS and would love to see upgrades as well, such as new attractions, and exhibits, entertainment.

Enchanted Tales (or at least the original incarnation of it) has a bit of a sweet spot in my heart. Back in the olden days of 199something, my family went on a trip, went to the original version of Enchanted Tales (where Merida is now), and one of my favorite Disney memories was created. While my sister and I weren't chosen to be a part of Belle's story, my dad was chosen to be the Beast. We have it on film somewhere, but he got really into the part.

I think it's nice to have a variety of things to do at Disney (rides, shows, interactions like this), and at least this is more entertaining than waiting in a 3 hour line to meet Cinderella.

In full agreement about the DHS shows. Idk why BatB isn't getting a movie-esque update, or an enclosed theater to do a longer show. A 45 minute, detailed musical a la Aladdin or Frozen is needed at that park. Little Mermaid should definitely bow out for Tangled or Moana.
Yeah. No reason why Storytime with Belle (the original version you saw) had to be expanded into the colossal waste of space that is Enchated Tales. It was much smaller in scale. All they had to do was make a huge building that contained the ride, Be Our Guest restaurant, and a moved Storytime into the castle's library that still used the same basic amount of space as when it was outdoors.
Only if it goes 'round and round'.
This thread keeps going round and round.
New attraction in World Showcase = "World Showcase isn't about rides, corporate is bastardizing the concept."
Only when it doesn't fit the concept.

It sounds crazy because, weren't you the one saying that any new national pavilion would come with a ride to justify the cost of a new pavilion?
I can't recall if @marni1971 was the person that said that, but I know for a fact that this very statement was made regarding any new country. Someone said that any new country would include a new ride - and not a small one.

I was the Beast once in this show. All I remember is thinking, "Belle really wants me to put my hand on her waist?" Also, I hope they changed out the costume for the next dude because it was a 96 degree day in late June. You do the math.

All countries should have an attraction. It doesn't matter what type; ride, show, special entertainment, museum, etc. If it's just shops and restaurants, the place starts feeling (more) like a gigantic mall with a cover charge.
Well if you are counting ride, show, special entertainment, and museum then all current countries have those. I'd like to see more than just that

I think steetmosphere/live outdoor acts are a nice compliment but all pavilions should IMHO have a ride or show or at the very least an exhibition space. UK and Italy I think are pavilions who really don't have much beyond shopping/eating except for the streetmosphere -- I'd like to see that improved upon. At least Germany has the train garden.
