I remember back in the day we use to take gloves with us to Dland so we could really get the cups spinning. Now I don't plan on doing things intentionally that would result in hurling be it a park ride or drinking too much.

When my sister and I were 13-15 years old or thereabouts, I used to be able to whip that wheel around with one hand like a trucker...my sister's shoe flew off and out of the vehicle, we had to find it afterwards.
Then I went somewhere else and their version of the teacups had speed-limiting brakes, imagine my disappointment.
After seeing what they planned, I am glad it's been cancelled. There is so much they could do for Cherry Tree Lane besides a tea cup ride.
And we have a band back in UK, which makes me happy.
We definitely need a band in the pagoda. I still miss the British Invasion.
Wow, did I just have a flashback to a British Invasion show. My kids were heavily indoctrinated into the music of the Beatles from just after birth (well, maybe they were 1-2 years old). My now 22 year old was around 3-4 and we were watching a British Invasion show. We were pretty close to the stage, and DS kept creeping closer and closer to the stage. Being the responsible parent that I am, I said nothing. I thought it was cute and funny. He just wanted to be near "The Beatles." DW was with the other kids somewhere else in Epcot. I took a pic of DS and texted it to DW. He was just a few feet from the steps leading up to the stage. My phone rings. It's DW. "Get him now!! He's going to go up on stage!" So I did. After the song ended (might've been Nowhere Man) I asked DS, "Why did you want to be so close to the stage?" and he told me, "I wanted to go up there and tell them that I know this song." So innocently. DW was right. Had I not waved him back, he would've walked up and interrupted the song.
This is the kid who watched the Yellow Submarine movie every day (not exaggerating) after preschool for about two years.
Sorry for the tangent. It's one of my favorite WDW memories.
They probably don't have the space, but a Mary Poppins ride that uses Universal's Spiderman ride system, so you move from 3D scene to 3D scene (penguins, carousel, rooftop chimney sweeps, etc.) would be a great ride.
