  1. Loved it! But… I would have loved it better as a quiz with the answers at the bottom of the page, not next to the quotes. Thanks for a great post though. 🤩

  2. I remember essentially all of these. But why does the list include items no longer at WDW? Newer visitors will not recognize or be able to appreciate the now gone attractions. The Great Movie Ride has no movies and will reopen as the Mickey & Minnie ride. Malestrom is gone, Wishes has been replaced with Happily Ever After, and Ellen’s University of Energy is becoming the Guardians of the Galaxy. Either designate older, now gone attractions as prior history as a separate list or leave them out and focus on what people will actually see in the parks.

    1. They included discontinued rides/attractions because there are still many, many Allears visitors who remember them well and will always appreciate them.
