What should NOT have been replaced?

Horizons - I will always wonder why they got rid of this one.

Great Movie Ride - nothing against a new ride with MM, but just wish they utilized another empty lot instead of destroying GMR

I remember the characters would walk around the park and interact with the kids, my boys loved it. I guess Disney saw another way to make a dollar and started character meals at various restaurants. IMO over charge for so so food. Thanks for jogging my memory I remember watching the ducks on the lawn too.
Meet and greets had a lot to do with the safety of the characters. It is a controlled environment.
 
Original Innoventions. Alec Tronic (Timekeeper's cousin removed?), Sum of All Thrills?, Bill Nye had a thing set up, Apple, and of course saving the best for last, Sega's huge exhibit with Sonic, all the consoles, and yeah Knuckles was featured too. (& KNUCKLES)

"one little spark" although by the time I got there in 2001, horizons has "been eaten by a sinkhole" and mission space was a pad of concrete, I think it still has a place in EPCOT. Even today.
 
Which attraction should NOT have been replaced?
The Skyway. One, a fun break and great views of the park. Two, when the park was really crowded, an easy way to get from one end to the other. Especially with a family, you didn't have to hold hands and drag your crew through the crowd.

A related thread - possibly already here - is what attraction is still there that should NOT have been allowed to descend into horribleness? The answer there is the Jungle Cruise. Should have been revamped/updated decades ago. It can still be fun, and charming, but as an attraction it's 30 years past needing a massive makeover.

I agree about Jungle Cruise. Not even sure why it's still around with the addition of AK. Go on Kilimanjaro Safari....the animals are real!!!
 
Even though I am not the biggest fan of movies in general, I was really sad when the Great Movie Ride closed. I understand that not many young people today are familiar with the movies that were in that ride, but I still enjoyed it. I remember wanting to be the actor that played the gangster who took over the car! It was really well done. Even though I am kind of surprised it took this long to close down. I will still miss it. I used to go on it twice sometimes, especially if the lines were not long.
