This is my favorite icebreaker question because many Disney fans have thought about this a time or two. It never fails to create a fun discussion, and sometimes it ends friendships, but that’s okay, right? Just kidding, but it does offer a place for fun banter.
I recently saw this conversation on the internet regarding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and other fan favorites. My favorite idea that I’ve seen is the one that mentions the coaster featuring Aerosmith. The Twitter user jokes that the ride got rethemed to Hannah Montana and how Disney keeps changing classic attractions. That would be a great retheme, and I only say that because I grew up watching the show. The music from that Disney Channel classic was iconic, and I still listen to the tunes today.

I would love to see a reimagined version of Tomorrowland Speedway. With the changes being made to that section of the park (Tron), I think it’s time that something more futuristic takes its place. It would be great to see it showcase electric vehicles so the area could stop smelling like garbage. I wouldn’t want to see it replaced with IP, but let’s be realistic; it probably would be. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they made a new original story for the speedway with characters from the future? They could educate us on how these vehicles help the planet. Oh, wait, they would use Wall-e for that.
Mission: SPACE is another attraction that I would love to change. I would keep the space theme so that Space 220 could stay, but instead of a ride that makes guests violently sick, I would love to see an omnimover type of attraction here. It would be great to see this building used for a dark ride where visitors can travel through space and meet Zenon, the girl of the 21st century. Writing that made me chuckle because that movie is a blast from the past. It’s a classic.
Those are my thoughts, but I am curious which rides you would retheme, so let me know in the comment section!
Hi, I'm Erica, and I write about all things Disney. Before working for The DIS, I was a theme park performer at SeaWorld, but I also performed at Disney. I have such an immense love for theme parks to the point I studied them in college.
