OK My must do, but never do again has to be the TeA cUpS...... Sick When I was younger, it was fantastic fun trying with my cup mates to get that thing spinning as fast as we could, yay but now I can handle 1 fast circular motion at a time, but when you throw in the 2 other circulars that are going on, hand me a Princess Barf Bag please!!! Sick Tired I don't want to grow up! Getting old is so over rated... wheelchair

My husband and I both miss 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I remember being scared of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...maybe it was his crazy eyes or the fact that the description had "wild" in it...but I sure would love to do both of those rides one more time!

I really miss the original Journey into the Imagination. One of my favorite Disney characters is Figment and has been ever since I can remember! They also used to have a bunch of other stuff in that building that I loved as a child.

And I agree with Nancy D...I was afraid of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride!! It would be great to ride it again to see if I enjoy it as an adult Smile

The Hall of Presidents at the MK. It's a must do~once. Whenever my husband wants to do an "educational" attraction at Disney, I always tell him I don't want to learn, I'm on vacation stars

Head to Disneyland, it's still there! At least it was last year.

It was still there at the beginning of this year.

And still there as of March! We rode it and are still trying to figure out what happened there...lol

Anyone remember an afternoon parade at EPCOT? We saw it in 2001. Cast members maneuvered these giant figures around World Showcase. I remember there was a lady, probably in her 40s standing next to us, clapping along and having thee most enjoyable time! Asone of the figures passed by, the lady held up a hand as if to ask for a high-five. to my utter amazement, the CM worked the giant hand down to her hand and gently gave her a high five with the figure. I was mesmerized! I would love to see that again.

This was The Tapestry Of Nations Parade.
And that's my answer too. I so wish WDW would bring this back again.

Anyone remember the bucket things that used to go above the Magic Kingdom? I remember going on those when I was like 5 and thinking it was so neat...but I have to agree with many others that Mr. Toad's Wild Ride was one of my favorites....guess I will have to try to take a trip out to Disneyland... mickey

One day when I was working as a cast member on a baked potato cart outside the Rose & Crown in Epcot, Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, March Hare and Dormouse turned up carrying a picnic basket. They sat on the lawn at the side of the UK pavilion, set out their picnic and proceeded to have a tea party for about half an hour. It was a very quiet time at World Showcase so the tea party was not interrupted by guests seeking autographs. In fact I think I was one of the only people who saw this magical little display. During the following months, I always looked out for Alice and her friends but never saw the tea party again. Has anyone else seen this? If not, I imagine it was just an experiment that was not repeated. It was lovely and I felt so lucky to have seen it.

OMG this sounds amazing!! This needs to be a regular thing!

I would so love to do Horizons again. I was 8-years-old the first and last time I rode Horizons and I barely remember the details of the ride, but it was my most vivid memory from my first trip to WDW because I remember it as a time when my dad (who was very authoritative and rarely asked me for my opinion) actually asked me what I thought and let me make choices during our journey. So it's not so much the ride that I miss, but the ability to revisit that particular bonding experience. I'm hoping to find a new ride that fills that void when we take my parents along for my birthday trip in April. It will be their first trip to WDW in 24 years.

I would love to have seen that, shame if it never became a regular event.

The thing I remember most from my first trip in 1988 was Mickey and Goofy waterskiiing behind the boat from TTC to MK, I was so disappointed when I went back in 2008 with my husband and daughter, I insisted we didn't get the monorail and stood at the back of the ferry, but no waterskiiing characters Sad

rolling Primeval hurl I will agree on, but the rest, they are all great rides! Space Mt doesn't make me sick, it actually hurt my neck and I have never had problems like that. It seamed really jerky.

OH, how I miss Horizons! It is definitely on my 'wish I could do again' list. The World of Motion, too, and the original Universe of Energy and Living Seas. I remember the year the Living Seas opened and was teeming with fish, and the Today show broadcast from the viewing area. It was fabulous! My husband swears not only do we have to sit through the annoying Nemo stuff, but that there are actually fewer fish in the aquarium. At first, I thought he was crazy, but now I'm beginning to think he's right.

I'm quite unlikely to ever do It's A Small World again...although I might do if I'm there in a group rather than on my own...!

They also had this wonderful jewelry counter (not the fast food of jewelry) where my DH bought me a ring. Sigh...now not such much unless it can be attached to a card with a twist tie. sarcastic
