CMM to Pandora
ST1 to ST2
TT1 to TT2 (the ride lost a little edge, but EPCOT gained a lot)

Anything else?
GE I love, although I loved the Backlot and Streets of America too. I'll call that one a draw, but might very well come to consider it a gain.
Otherwise, except for Springs, I struggle to come up with anything in WDW that is better now than at the beginning of the decade.

Wish that 'closed for your future enjoyment' would instill excited anticipation again instead of fear.

Ah yes....Camp Minnie Mickey was a waste of space for sure.
Another good example.
Pandora is excellent and a far better use of the space.

Test Track 2.0 is better than 1.0, but that's just my opinion and a lot of people disagree
I think the pre-show especially in 2.0 is more befitting of EPCOT Center. I think they did a poor job of integrating the vehicle building into the attraction itself. I think they needed to utilize the screens along the track to "race" or test alongside your guest created vehicles.

I won't disagree there...there is defintely more they could have done to the ride itself, but it still feels properly futuristic compared to 1.0

I don't think 1.0 was out of place in Epcot, but it was very much in the present and didn't really have the inspirational/aspirational vibe of some of the preceding attractions on that side of the park. Also, while I preferred Test Track 1.0 over Mission SPACE 1.0, I think Mission SPACE was a better fit thematically. Test Track 1.0 was a fun ride but 2.0 makes more sense for the park.

Early Epcot was all about showing/teaching how it works ala world's fair exhibits. Far and beyond what fairs could provide and TT 1.0 played into that with it's story of a GM design and testing facility.
I find it much less than that and more of a time filler today. I do like me some mechanical stress tests though, my bent in life and why I like theme park construction so much.

OMG Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was TOTALLY better than Star Trek: The Motion Picture - you are so right!!!

Wait, what do you mean it wasn't a Trek reference?

Never mind...

So if Mermaid is going to reopen soon where are the trained and approved performers going to come from?
I don’t think it’s going to be opening anytime soon, you can’t socially distant stage the show really. But still the performers would be brought back from furlough...just like every other offering.

They need to offer an ability to design your car in the MDE app/website, and then save it to your magic band. I'm sorry, but a couple of minutes just isn't enough time and I don't want to waste my day at the post-show kiosk during my actual stay in the parks.

I wish the cars could have a more modern design and less "Blade Runner" too, but I digress.

Just updating the graphics, especially on the post show "commercial" you can design would be a big upgrade. I do think it's fine to keep the wild styles though as that is what makes it more whimsical and easy to make something unique and interesting.
