    There are too many attractions that have faded into obscurity, but I would have to say Horizons at Epcot. It was probably the only atrraction that incorporated all the aspects of Epcot into it. Fortunately or unfortunately, the attraction needed to shut down. I think it was mainly because the future there was not the future of today. If the attraction keeps saying things like "...in the year 2000, we will be able to..." Well we're nearing the end of the first decade and not much has shown itself of the future that they thought it would be. Then again, Epcot was orginally called EPCOT Center as is was supposed to be the "center" of Walt Disney's EPCOT. Walt Disney World in itself is the EPCOT that Walt would have wanted, not exactly but close.

    (Wow all that for Horizons. I need to learn to summarize.)

    What about the "flight" thing that was in Tomorrowland? I remember that it was sponsored by Delta, but I can't remember what it was called. I loved that thing!

    Horizons was cool but very dated so Im not shocked it got pulled. I liked 20,000 but my parents would groan everytime I made them go on it because they thought it was so cheesy.

    Well, I miss many rides...but especially Mr. Toad and the original Figment ride. Everyone misses Mr. Toad, but although there is a new Figment ride, it can't compare to the original!!

    I miss Dreamfinder!!!!!!!

    When Delta sponsored it, it was called Delta Dreamflight. But it was originally called If You Had Wings and was sponsored by Eastern. When Eastern dropped out, it was renamed to If You Could Fly. Then Delta took over. After Delta left, it was renamed again to Disney's Take Flight.

    I loved the original If You Had Wings. I rode it many, many times as a kid because it was a "free" ride and didn't require a ticket.

    What was the name of the exhibit next to it? It now features Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. I think it was just a movie?

    This is not a ride, but I miss Tapestry of Nations. I thought it was very creative. I'm not sure many people agree with me since I haven't seen much about it on any of the forums.

    I don't remember Horizons or World of Motion, but it would be cool to bring back the original Figment ride, I remember I enjoyed it a lot. Also, the Time Keeper (love Robin Williams' voice over)!
