cretinbob: I used to think Mission to Mars was the best thing there........Of course I was what....6?And the people mover...and "If I had wings".......Jesus I'm old........
ThatGuyGreg: Real talk: Magic Kingdom > Disneyland
unyon: Hey, it's like watching trees grow.
Muta: It hasn't changed all that much.
Mugato: I miss the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride. I remember it being pretty cramped. I'm convinced they closed it because people got too fat to fit.
Winterlight: I still miss the sky buckets.[www.imagineeringdisney.com image 850x449]
cretinbob: And the people mover...and "If I had wings".......
Mugato: I remember when you needed a ticket for each ride, that's how far I go.
kimwim: I feel old when on occasion I still use the term "E ticket", and no one knows what I'm talking about. But you've got to go to the parks in the correct order. Disneyland, then to Disneyworld. Never do Disneyworld first, then Disneyland.
Wellon Dowd: usually in reference to their mother.
poot_rootbeer: I think it takes a trip to a Universal theme park to truly appreciate how well designed the Disney theme parks and their attractions are. And as these photos show, a lot of those design elements were already in place 40-50 years ago.
Mugato: I'm still pissed that as crappy as the park apparently is by comparison, Disney Land got the Indiana Jones Ride and World got the silly stunt show.
poot_rootbeer: DINOSAUR at WDW Animal Kingdom is basically the same ride, down to the track layout.
Mugato: I'm still pissed that as crappy as the park apparently is by comparison, Disney Land got the Indiana Jones Ride and World got the silly stunt show. But whenever I'm in California, Disney Land isn't on my list of things to do.
Rev. Skarekroe: Some changes are good - the steampunk style Tomorrowland was a necessity, and while I loved 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea it was WAY out of date.Some changes are criminal - look at the candy shop picture. Just sad.
Tom_Slick: That and the Penny Arcade.
Rev. Skarekroe: Removing the penny arcade and the magic shop to put in a sporting goods store
Rev. Skarekroe: Tom_Slick: That and the Penny Arcade.Removing the penny arcade and the magic shop to put in a sporting goods store selling the same f*cking t-shirts you can get anywhere else in the Disney complex almost made me never want to go back again. Walt Disney was always about updating his attractions for the times, but I have a feeling that would have appalled him.Thankfully, I ran into my favorite penny arcade movie, a Felix the Cat cartoon, in the lobby of another Disney hotel, so at least that one got saved from auction.
