Oh, yes. It was at the 1900 Park Faire and it was the best. Then they allowed Pooh to take over..Boy, was I mad. Now, its Cindy. Meh...I miss my Villains.Originally Posted by the7thAve
Wow! I would love to eat at a Villians Dinner!
"What ARRRRGH you doing?"
"What are you doing?"
"No, What ARRRRGH you doing?"Cap'n Jack lives again!"I'll try anything once or twice, that's the kind of mouse I am"
I miss Mr. Toad... it was my favorite ride when I was a kid, and I'm sad it was replaced by Pooh. Also, the Main Street Electrical Parade was my favorite Disney parade. I suppose I'll have to drag myself out to CA in order to experience a wee bit of my childhood again....
Mr. Toad - Pooh is fine, but he ain't The Toad.
Magic Journeys - every 3-D movie that's followed it just doesn't measure up.
If You Had Wings - I had all the A and D tickets, and my sister and cousin got all the E tickets; therefore, I rode this and the carousel while they were on Space Mountain. I miss the Dunns River Falls scene terribly.

Too many to say...I miss Toad, Horizons, World of Motion, The oringal Imagination...I could go on forever. I really think Disney should build on things instead of replacing them. They have enough land to do that!
I know people have mentioned this before but what about a whole seperate park dedicated to the good ole' rides. Wow..imagine what we could bring back. I think the demand is there, ::sigh:: but it won't happen. Can't help but imagine though!!!Originally Posted by nrose101

When I was little we went to Disney World all the time, and my absolute favorite ride was Journey into the Immagination. But we stoped going to Florida inorder to go to Texas and Kentucky for 5 years. When we came back in about 2001, I immediatly wanted to go back to see my ride, but it was closed for remodeling. I tried again the next year, but needless to say, it was still closed. Finally I got to ride my ride, and I must say, I was very disapointed. I still love Figment, but I was heart broken to see my all time favorite ride changed...
Hellooo, Captian EO, anyone? I know... "what a dork!" but when i went to WDW for the first time in 1984, i was 7 and a HUGE Michael Jackson fan. anybody remember what the name of that little flying thing was in that flick?
too bad that MJ would have been a big fan of me at that age...
I miss Toad for all the same reasons as you, as well as one more.
When i was on the CP working in Fantasyland foods, we had to take our cash drawers to a cash count office in the back of Mrs.Potts ice cream shop, and count out at the end of the day. we sat a a long desk that ran the length of a wall in that room. on the other side of that wall was the trainbwreck scene of Mr. Toad's! about every 30 seconds or so you would hear little kids screaming! the first time i had to count out there, i couldnt function, cause i busted out laughing each time someone screamed!!!
I also miss Hook's Tavern and the Little Big Top, specifically because i worked there. Hook's is gone, and LBT has become Scuttles Landing, but they dont serve the snowcones i used to make there. My 2 favorite guest questions ever and thier attendant answers were produced at that food location. we used to get lots of brightly colored snowcone syrup on our costumes... accidentally and on purpose! people would look at that, and then look at their kids... then ask "does that stuff wash out?" my answer, which quickly became the standard answer "nope, but the fairy godmother has a spell that gets rid of it quickly." (if pressed, we would assure the folks that it does, indeed wash out easily)
the other... the sticky sweet syrup attracted quite a few Yellow Jacket wasps. they buzz around quite a bit. now, i am severely allergic to them, but i quickly realized that they were far more interested in eating than stinging. as long as you didnt try to squish em, they were quite easy to shoo away. i used to put some syrup in the palm of my hand allow them to land and eat. folks would ask "dont they sting?" "nope, they are freindly, magic bees that wont sting unless you try to hurt them."
I am totally with you on that one. And now that I have seen Stitch's Great Escape where Alien Encounter used to be...it would be inappropriate for me to say what I REALLY think but......GRRRRRRRR. (not to be confused with ARRRRRRG ) What a complete travesty. I almost cried. (I did cry over Figment).Originally Posted by PsychoTyco244
