    The name of the original ride was If You Had Wings. It had two others names with very little rehab when Eastern went out of business. It finally closed and then reopened as Buzzlightyear Space Ranger Spin.

    Oh that was a favorite of mine! Free (during the coupon days). I have some audio and video files I'll put up in the Downloads section.

    If You Had Wings became "If You Could Fly" after Eastern Airlines went our of business. When Delta became the sponsor, it became "Delta Dreamflight". As you know, it's last most recent incarnation is as Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin"

    I love the "Widen Your World" site for extinct attractions. Not only for looking back but to confirm to myself I'm not crazy when I think I "remember" something that is no longer there!

    Hey Mickeybabe, try a Google search for "Walt Dated World." What a wonderful site; brings back a LOT of memories.
