What I want in 2013: Magic Kingdom!

I've thought about this for quite some time now. I've done a lot of thinking actually, and that’s not easy for me considering I've the attention span of a goldfi…Is anybody hungry? Who wants lunch? Crap, let’s get back on topic here.
 What I would like for 2013 at the Magic Kingdom? Now some of you may be saying “why would you change anything at the Magic Kingdom?” I’ll tell you why: have you been to Disneyland lately? Well Disneyland is smaller and yet somehow 102% cooler! Why is that? I’ll tear down the walls on this bow-hitch and let you know exactly why…I love the ocean.
Let’s review the great rides at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, because yes, they do differ from Disneyland a little bit on some, a lot on others. First off, Peter Pan, it’s a fantastic ride, don’t touch it, it’s on par with Disneyland. Next we have Pirates of the Caribbean. Rip that sucker out quicker than Jack Sparrow can escape, and start fresh. The only good thing about that ride is the queue. It’s awesome, and the atmosphere is fantastically delicious. The ride, however, is disappointing. It’s not as long as the Disneyland ride, and they've cut out a bunch of it. Why? They have plenty of room, make it bigger! Put a 90 foot drop on that sucker and have the Kraken attack you! Now we're talking, right? That would be epic. Next is Small World. The Small World ride at Disney World is awful. It’s falling apart, and it’s not as long, or as nice as Disneyland’s version.
I know they've been putting lots of other things into the Magic Kingdom to make it more “Magical”, but even Lance Burton agrees that it’s not magical enough! What I would like to see in 2013 is for Disney to use every inch of the Magic Kingdom and make it amazing instead of mediocre. More original rides would be nice…Stop copying Disneyland all the time and bust out with some new material! The whole Fantasyland upgrades are a great start, but finish the run! Don’t stop 300 feet before the finish line! 2013 can be great, just let the Disneyland team fly over there and show you how it’s done.
