Yeah, can't agree with you here
I just visited the park for the first time since 2017 in September and aside from Avengers Campus and a retheme of Paradise Pier, the whole park felt dated. Hollywoodland and the animation academy do, Paradise Gardens feels it a bit, and original World Of Color (which was playing when I was there) certainly does imo. The park just felt like no love has been given to it lately, especially because I rode Mission Breakout in 2017, so that wasn't even new to me.
The park doesn't actually feel like there's much major to do when you're in it and you've already gotten GotG, Web Slingers, RSR, and Incredicoaster done before 10, which is easily done when rope dropping since three of those four have single rider lines. We bought Genie+ at DL, but didn't bother when we were at DCA.
