    History of WDW additions/changes by year

    Hi everyone... I've been looking for a good chronology of changes to the World since it began, but mostly for the last decade. I have searched and come up with a few, but they seem incomplete. Does anyone know of a good source for this information? I'm asking because I'm taking my best friend on a trip this summer and she hasn't been there with me in ten years! I'd like to make sure she sees all of the "new" additions. I visit often, so I can't remember when things have appeared. Thanks for any help!

    I run a site that chronicles all the attractions that have closed and what they closed for (i.e. what replaced them if anything) if that helps. It has the dates each opened/closed etc. and you can find the link in my signature (Extinct Disney). Outside of that I don't know that I've ever seen a page that is focused on just the new stuff and when it opened but I can say that sites like WDW Magic, AllEars, etc. do a good job of capturing that information, just not in a single list that I've seen.

    As a side note: !!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Yesterland has some good pages on past attractions, although the focus is more on Disneyland.

    Wikipedia might have a fair amount of information, if perhaps incomplete and not 100% reliable.

    I strongly second both Yesterland and Extinct Disney. Both sites are wonderfully done.

    Imagineering Disney sometimes has some outstanding retrospectives, with a nice archive.
