    I voted Tiki Room because the refurb is so bad I'd actually prefer it was simply destroyed rather than desecrated.

    Actually, I miss the old Pirates. It doesn't have the same feeling anymore. The smell is different, not the old musty, sulphery pirate smell. Also, I miss the old music. Now it's the movie soundtrack.

    I am so torn between Figment, TTA and Pirates.

    I went with TTA however it maybe Figment isn't as raw of a wound and Pirates can still be salvaged if they wake up some day.

    TTA, there is just no explanation for. No movie to promote. No reason.

    I'm not voting considering I have never been but I do want to mention that Mr. Toad not being there makes me sad. It is one of my favorites here at Disneyland and I really wish it would be at MK when I go.

    Closing 20,000 leagues was a loss of a true classic. I also miss WOM and the old JII.

    As much as I miss Mr. Toad and 20,000 Leagues by far the worst refurbishment was in the Imagination building. Although popularity wained and the lines were non existent, we always made in effort to visit this attraction twice. Now 2 refurbs later the current version focusses on the senses more than the imagination. There has to be an imagineers vision somewhere on the blue horizion better than this that wouldn't cost a fortune....PLEASE

    Oh there are a couple, but for me the saddest is Imagination! I miss the old one, although this one is WAY better than v2! But, I miss dreamfinder, and I hope this isn't strange but I even miss the smell of that place. I still ride it every trip, but its just not the same. Ug, I HATE the skunk part, I hold my breath because I know its coming. The current version just doesn't do it for me

    Re: Worst WDW refurb/update or closure...

    I voted for the closure of the entire Wonders of Life Pavilion as the worst refurb simply because it closed and nothing opened up in its place. At least with many of the closures/refurbishments, something new came in to replace the old attraction/show. With WoL, we have nothing but a gutted out pavilion used only for Flower & Garden and Food & Wine. When I think of what used to be in there, and what could be there if they ever found a sponsor......it just makes me sad and angry

    And I have to mention Horizons......I miss it so much!

    My family can't even walk past JII w/o making comments...needless to say we don't go on it...awful! i loved horizons, that orange smell was great...i mean i like mission space but it's not the same, not even close...WOM was another fave, loved the footprints along the wall...i guess most of those rides remind me of childhood and family trips.
