Not even Stitch. Kali is very sub-par in 2018.

My son always thought it could be overlayed with an Emperor's New Groove theme. He was bummed when I told him that the movie and Kali took place in two different hemispheres...

Word is they're going to install fun.

I feel like I'm the only person who likes the attraction. Poor thing

No attraction on property needs to be reimagined and probably 're-engineered' more than Kali. A complete replacement of the ride segment should be considered. IMO.

Everest has not had a refurb since opening correct? It should be one of the next attractions in the park to receive one with Pandora open right?

Its been a complaint since it opened. You run the risk of getting completely soaked for a very short ride that feels incredibly incomplete. It is a huge bummer that this couldnt be much longer.

Well, they could just close the gates and make you sit there in the channel with water washing over your raft for 2 minutes...

are they adding another 2-3 minutes to the ride? if not then the refurb is a waste of time. and yes, i know they can't add more river to the ride. so i'm basically saying this ride kinda sux.

No need. I just saw the jungle book on Jungle Cruise.
