Replace Wonders of Life with Tron Coaster with 11 inversions= FUN!
Another Family Coaster= Bore.

Epcot would massively benefit from a good, well themed coaster with a few inversions added to the mix.

One of the reasons Disney is my least favorite is that there is a lack of thrill rides. I agree that there should be a coaster in Epcot (preferably where the old Wonders of Life is), as there is none there.

"Does Disney need a new coaster?"

Absolutely! Hong Kong Disneyland should get a new coaster.

How about a Sugar Rush-themed Crush Coaster at Disney California Adventure

Yes yes yes yes YES!!!! They need an awesome, well-themed, inverting coaster! Maybe a winged coaster or a flying coaster! They need thrill rides now! Universal is gaining more people every day because of their upgrades like Harry Potter, Transformers, etc. Disney is only popular because everyone knows of Disney and every other family goes there for vacation! Disney is great with storytelling and theming so if they combine that with a crazy roller coaster, they have a world class ride! They could even hide the ride in trees or have an event building like verbolten! It wouldn't be that hard for them to come up with something grand!

I strongly agree, but a month or two ago I was shut down saying "a coaster is not needed (at Epcot)." When it comes to amusement parks to me the roller coaster will always be the signature element. Even for those who are too scared or are not in good enough shape to ride a coaster they still enjoy watching it and hearing the enjoyment from their friends who do ride it. Yes, Yes, YES!!! Disney needs coasters as the young children love them too! Sure Disney was created for children so with that in mind Disney should look at all possibilities of designing a top coaster which is suited for children 48" and above. Epcot is the most adult friendly park in my opinion and the most adult style coaster would fit best at this Disney park if they choose to put in a coaster with a 54" requirement.

Sorry I got excited :P I just feel very strongly that Disney needs a coaster.

Of course Disney does. Roller coasters will always be the featured star of the amusement parks. They are the attraction that brings in the most people. They are the thrill that is most responsible in giving people the desire to return to the parks to enjoy that thrill again.

Lisa if your statement was true, then six flags and cedar fair would be the market leaders, not Disney.
