I know, this saddens me about disney. I know they are a business and they are constantly changing but everytime they change something it makes me sad
Of course there were many attractions there before I was even born that I never got to ride, and I'm sure some of those are greatly missed. I guess I just want disney world to remain the way it was when I first went there but I know this isn't going to happen.
I have already seen many of my beloved attractions leave: horizons, mr. toad's wild ride, el rio del tiempo (i don't really like the grand fiesta tour), ice station cool (why did they take the frozen tunnel away...?). I miss all of these things a lot. I even miss attractions that weren't my favorite or I never even rode. I never got the chance to ride the skyway and I never rode alien encounter because I was always too afraid to ride it, but I am still sad that these attractions are gone because I remember seeing them as a kid. I also miss the timekeeper, even though this was not one of my favorite attractions. Even more recently in animal kingdom they took out little red, big red, and mrs. jobson from the storyline and this upset me! It's the little things about disney that make me love it so much and it seems like they keep taking these things away from me! Thats not to say that I don't love disney world, because I do love disney world its just that I love the disney world when I was 8 years old more than the disney world now that I'm 16.
One thing in particular is getting on my nerves which is the replacing of disney rides with pixar characters and in some cases, characters in general. I didn't need the laugh floor to replace the timekeeper, I didn't need stitch to replace alien encounter, the three caballeros didn't need to invade el rio del tiempo, and mr. toad didn't need to be replaced by a more popular character that could sell more merchandise.
So thats my rant on disney constantly changing, I know they have to keep changing, and walt would have probably wanted that too, I'm just having a hard time letting go of some of my favorite attractions.
Some things I hope they never change. For one thing I hope they never change the jungle cruise, it is such a classic disney attraction and is perfect the way it is. Another thing is spaceship earth, it is great the way it is and doesn't need to be tweaked. The haunted mansion is currently under refurbishment, I'm actually excited to see what changes are made but I'm kind of scared too, I just hope they don't do too much so it ends up very different from the original attraction. I love the original attraction! I hope splash mountain is there forever, it is my favorite of the three mountains. Since space mountain changed in disneyland I wouldn't be too shocked if they changed the one in WDW, although I would probably be a little sad over this just because I like space mountain the way it is. I actually like the changes made to pirates of the caribbean, but no more changes need to be made. Will and Elizabeth can stay in the movies. The great movie ride isn't a classic, but I still wouldn't want it to be changed. Carousel of Progress should never be removed! It is a classic!!
So yea, that concludes my very long rant on disney world attractions
