There have been a lot of changes in Disney over the years. Which things do you wish they'd bring back?

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Play it!

So, I know my answer isn't anything fancy or a Disney classic..but whatever, I liked it and I cried when they took it away. The Dave got in the hot seat and almost one a cruise y'all! But he decided he'd rather have the hat and the pins so he threw the game. Yeah, that's what happened.

Don't quite know what to say to that! I would take the cruise! I ALMOST got in the hot seat once - I was in second by a millisecond. Turned out, I wouldn't have known the fourth or fifth question and wouldn't have done so great anyway! I do wish they kept that though.

My choice would be for them to bring back Innoventions and Communicores the way it used to be - with all the cool stations and games. I remember it being SO cool when I was a kid, and thinking how great it would be as technology advanced that we'd get to see some great things there. Now we can go and play Playstation 2. Woohoo.

I still miss 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I know, some people think it was lame, but I liked it!

I feel the same way about those places, but I wonder if I liked them so much because I was a kid and didn't have any other experiences. Nostalgia will do strange things to you!

I never got to ride 20,000 leagues. From what I've heard, I think I'd like to.

I'll have to dig out one of my old videos of our last ride on it! We knew it was closing that year so I taped the whole ride.

Over 10 years ago there was a buffet at the Poly called the 'Tangorora' (not sure of the spelling). It was our favorite place to eat. Gone now.

Haha well, it didn't exactly get that far. biggrin

He did win the pins though..he had all his lifelines left and guessed on an answer he was sure he knew but he was wrong.
He mixed up debutante with dilettante. Sad.

I really liked to fun interactive games at Innoventions from the early 2000's.

Did they stop the subs for a while?

The Devil, Michael Eisner, put them behind the waterfalls and they just about rusted out...it took a LOT of work to bring them back to what they once were. It was a ride that sat empty for a LONG time

No kidding! I had no idea that happened. I figured they were operating as 20,000 Leagues and then just switched over to Nemo. How great that they were brought back!

(Clearly, I need to go to Disneyland.)

Did they just do nothing with that space? Just an empty pool?

I don't think so. I vaguely remember seeing them on a back lot when I was a Cast Member...or am I imagining that? But they've never repurposed them in FL that I know of. I think it would be big news down here if they did. We do have a Nemo ride, but it's at Epcot.

I miss the little skyway tram thingy. Those actually terrify me...but still, it was part of the place, and I miss it. Everytime I see the deck in Fantasyland where it used to be, I think of it.

One change I'm very happy for, in looking at old pics/guide books - the cover over the teacups. I welcome any and all shade they build!

I'm starting to miss an awful lot of dishes. I feel like they're changing the menus too often these days.

I too miss Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and 20,000 Leagues. Also going to add Dreamflight, Food Rocks, Hunchback of Notre Dame show, and Alien Encounter (the one year where I was finally brave enough to go on it and they replaced it with Stitch). I think that's it for now. Might add more if I think of any others.

Mr. Toad, The Skyway, and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Those rides made such wonderful childhood memories.

That was my Dad's favorite spot, and the first place that served Tonga Toast. I'm not sure that the building is even there anymore. I remember it well though.

My Mom says Horizons. I'm not old enough to remember any stuff Eisner did.
