    Disney attractions that never were

    Just watched a programme, WDW past present and future, from 1992.

    In the future it advertised 6 new attractions that would be appearing.

    3 came true: Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, and an Epcot Space pavillion.

    3 so far has not: Russia in the World Showcase, Mt. Fuji attraction in Japan, and a Toonland bus ride in DHS.

    I think that it is pretty good, 50% hve actually come true.

    But i think its interesting how ideas seem to be recycled: The drawings of Mt Fuji seemed very similar to Expedition Everest.

    This led me to think of how many ideas actually become reality...

    So many acres still yet to be filled!! Any ideas?? (Bar the usuals: Night Kingdom / Villains parks)

    I wish they would build some new countries in Epcot.I love Epcot,it's our favorite park,but it has gotten slightly boring since we've done it 10 years in a row.It does need some more rides in it as well.I really loved the Millenium Village in 2000.That should have become a permanent fixture at Epcot.
    Come on now you dog-gone Disney Imagineers! Get ya ears on and let's spend some money! We KNOW you have it! We want something new at EPCOT!!!!!!!!!

    I want a Toonland bus ride
    I still bealive a Villains theme would work better as a Magic Kingdom expansion rather than an entire park.

    I agree! I also think Disney should open more attractions based on their classic movies.

    I'd like to see the boat ride down the Rhine that was originally intended for the German pavillion in Epcot.

    I heard that one of EPCOT's sponsors was Kodak so doing a ride with the word Fuji in it wasn't going to fly lol- like Fuji film.
