Recently, the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts introduced two new lands, both of which took over pre-existing areas: Pixar Pier at Disneyland’s Disney California Adventure took over what was once called Paradise Pier, and Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando took over part of the theme park that had been dedicated to a backlot tour and automotive stunt show. Both are a massive improvement.
Though change is the watchword with the Disney theme parks, which will soon introduce massive new Star Wars-themed expansions, sometimes that means that beloved attractions have to say goodbye. Here are some of the long-gone attractions we miss the most (though some of them still operate at one park or the other).
16Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride (Magic Kingdom)
Yes, the original Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride — which climaxes, literally, in Hell — is still at Disneyland. But when it got replaced at Walt Disney World by Winnie the Pooh, fans were so mad that they protested. Sometimes, there’s just no improving on the original.
