It really was a good ride, and it was really kinda scary too. Disney probably got tired of crying children upset from some evil apple-bearing witch they'd never seen before.

Images from the ride at Walt Disney World that will be going away as part of the new Fantasyland plans. A new Snow White-themed roller coaster ride will be coming, and the current Snow White venue will become a meet and greet location for Disney princesses.

Yes, as natural a pairing as cookies and milk.
WTF?

That ride scared the crap outta me as a kid. Still sad to see it go. Why tear our old favorites down? I am sure there is plenty of room to build on. Still angry Mr. Toad is gone.

I've never been to the one in Disney World, but I assume it's the same as the one in Disneyland, which was surprisingly dark for a kiddie ride. Still I hate to see these old rides close, as they bring a lot of nostalgia fun the parents bringing their kids there for the first time.

Boo hoo. Was Snow White walking a picket line when they came to disassemble "If You Had Wings" (sponsored by Eastern Airlines)?

You see what your complacency hath wrought, Whitey!?

is that the one in the kids section of the park that has been closed off for oh, the last 5 or 6 years?
 
2012-02-24 02:22:20 PM
I just hope they don't scale down the new Dwarf mine car coaster. Supposedly when they decided to build it, the ride vehicle was going to rock side to side and bounce as it went along the normal track (make people seasick hopefully). The design was going to be brand new, but it seems lately Disney is going for big ideas and backing down last minute with a weaker design. Hope it won't be the case here (mind you, I'm going off memory but I'm sure some knowledgable farker will lay down all the details).

Just went there with my wife and 5 year old daughter .. glad my little one got to go on it, but it really is outdated. I'm sure it'll come back eventually with a more modern presentation.

No, Snow White's Scary Adventure was in the middle of Fantasyland. Same general vicinity as It's a Small World.

If you're ever in L.A., visit Disneyland. It's still standing there.

If you didn't know, Disneyland is basically the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. Some differences in how they divide up the sections/some of the names, and both parks have rides the other doesn't, but otherwise it'll be like déjà vu.

turbidum: /why is Disney World two words and Disneyland one word?


Disneyland is one park. Disney World is like a city with four theme parks, a couple of water parks, endless hotels and shops, and several thousand acres they still don't know what to do with. They have their own government you know, Lake Beuna Vista is just a town that Disney runs.
 
2012-02-24 03:06:46 PM
My daughter kinda liked it when we went but it wasn't too thrilling since I tricked her into going on the Expedition Everest coaster. Backwards, in the dark, first time on a coaster. Oh, she loved it.

Technically, Disney runs the Reedy Creek Improvement District

Link (new window)

Its interesting that they have their own fire department, Reedy Creek Emergency Services (RCES), but they do not run their own PD, I believe they contract that out to the 2 counties that WDW occupies

It's late on a Friday afternoon, I'm bored, watching the clock tick (update on the task bar) and don't remember the Snow White ride.

Adding to this, the full name is Walt Disney World; Roy, his brother, wanted the world to realize it was Walt's vision specifically that made the Florida Project come to fruition. With that, Walt Disneyworld just looks a little off.

Well for one thing, Disney World is actually Walt Disney World which makes sense to have it separated. I have no idea why Disneyland is one word.

ClintBartonWannabe: I'm still pissed at them for closing 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.


That's the only ride they've closed whose closure made sense: because of the limited seating in the subs, the ride could never keep up with traffic at the park on even an average day, and it broke down with depressing regularity.

/still sad I never got to ride on it
//parents refused to wait in line for over an hour at 9AM to ride it.

I think that the seats were too small and the guests were too fat, that's why they closed it.

No, really. Anyone ride it? Back me up. It's really cramped quarters and the seats are like a foot wide. I saw someone get kicked off for being too big. And this was when I was a kid like 20 years ago and people have only gotten fatter.

Yeah it was most definitely cramped and maybe the fat American reasoning is legit...lol I can imagine all of the fat rascal riders protesting that they couldn't fit on the ride and possibly suing Disney.

That ride was the lamest piece of crap ever. How that ever got approved as an attraction is beyond me.

I LOVE me some Disney, but that thing is horrible.

Mr Toad's was great. Scared the crap out of me. My first memory of Disneyland was standing in line for Mr Toad's, asking what this ride was about. My parents then told me that we go on a car, get in an accident and go to hell. I spent the next 10 minutes in line screaming my head off that I didn't want to go to hell. They dragged me into the car bawling my eyes out. Then I stopped crying when they let me steer the car. It's probably the best memory I have as a kid; one I hold onto as a parent to remember how crazy emotions and logic are at that age.

I rode it in the 80s and yeah, it was cramped. And it completely could not handle handicapped passengers which violated the disability laws. And it was reportedly a giant maintenance nightmare. And it was kinda dumb anyway. But still neat.

The old school rides in fantasy land are so good for little kids though. Short lines, really beautiful settings and simple story based rides. Maybe it isn't a massive attraction, but this is the gateway drug material for Disneyland.

Disneyland still has it, only converted into a Finding Nemo ride.

It was pretty cramped when I rode it, but it was a still popular ride the last time I was at Disneyland thanks to all the kids who are Nemo fans.

I was just hired at WDW and I am getting an incredible kick etc etc. guess I know which ride comes after star tours and the haunted mansion!
 
2012-02-27 10:15:31 AM
One of the few classic rides left, really. That was in an area I tended to skip after I'd been there a few times. Too much foot traffic, too long of lines. Sometimes I'd at least go on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I think I only rode Snow White once.

I can't even go back to WDW anymore. All the stuff I loved has either been removed or revamped.
