I wish I could still hop on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Even though it was constantly leaking and a little musty smelling, it held a special place in my heart!

Hey... I was just thinking about the same ride. I remember as a kid going on that ride and having to wait because my little brother had an accident in his pants and having to wait and wait and wait and finally we got to go on. My mom had to take him back to the motor home in the parking area just to change him ( weak bladder, I guess). He was such a pesky little brother, now we are the best of friends.
We are going back in late June for 8 days 7 nights. Only taking husband and number 4 son. Very nice!

Did you catch Lou's podcast on Mr. Toad? Terrific. A very detailed history.

Preparation The LSAT is not as fun as the Haunted Mansion, but just as scary.
I've been sitting here for about an hour, trying to think of my most favorite forgotten ride. I've considered WoM, the Original SSE, Horizons and the original Imagination ride. I sat and "rode through" them in my head as best I could. After all this time I realized something. The ride I really miss is TIME. I miss the time spent with my family on those rides, and the memories we made. While I would love to see all these attractions again, I fear that it just wouldn't be the same in this time...
I'd say Mr. Toad, it was so cheesey that it was cool. But my wife disagrees...she remembers the Eastern Airlines Wings of Man and said that it was her favorite. (I'd forgotten all about that ride to be honest with everyone.)
I miss Horizons and the original long Backstage Tour. The one I don't miss is Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the...Armpit!!!
Middle of July...too many people...too close quarters...
World of Motion - Loved the traffic jam !

Without a doubt....Mr Toad....I miss that ride.
The Skyway and Mr Toad...they bring back childhood memories.
Favorite Old WDW Ride
I loved Horizons and World of Motion; posed this question to my 20-something year-old children today, and they agreed, and added Journey Into Imagination. I also miss Alec Tronic!
My favorite lost attraction is Main Street USA. What's that? You didn't know that this area was once an attraction in itself rather than a long stretch of T-shirt/plush/Disney merchandise?
We used to be able to spend almost 2 hours just on Main Street alone. Some of the attractions included: The Walt Disney Story, Main St. Cinema, Penny Arcade (that alone was good for an hour), Magic Shop, Antique store and others.
For photos and more info, go to the link below:
Widen Your World - Main Street USA
How about all of the above. 20,000 Leagues, WoM, Horizons, Journey to Imagination (bring back Dreamfinder!!!) and all the neat stops along Main Street-loved the Penny Arcade. I also miss the orginal hotel the Disney Inn ( now Shades of Green)
I also have to say Horizons, World of Motion and Journey to Imagination. Wish I would have gotten to see some of the Magic Kingdom attractions before my first trip in 1991.

When you wish upon a star..... LAUGHTER IS TIMELESS, IMAGINATION HAS NO AGE AND DREAMS ARE FOREVER. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway. WD ...That's the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up. WD

i miss river country although as a kid there was one slide there that absolutley terrified me i wish that river country was repairable so that my kids could enjoy it the way that i did.
For those of you who are really missing Horizons, Mouse surplus has a ride car for sale starting at nearly $2,000.00. This is your chance to capture the past and prove once and for all how much you really miss the ride. (Make sure you take a picture of it when it arrives. I'm sure it will be THE conversation piece of your family room.)
