Things come and go all the time at Walt Disney World, so here are 6 amazing pictures that you’ll never see in the parks again…
1. The Skyway at Magic Kingdom
The Skyway at Magic Kingdom was a cable car system in the air which was in operation at MK between October 1, 1971 and November 10, 1999 taking passengers between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
2. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage at Magic Kingdom
20,000 Leauges was a ride in Disney’s Magic Kingdom that opened in October 1971 and closed in September 1994. It was one of the original rides at Walt Disney World when it first opened. It has since been replaced by Pooh’s Playful Spot which also closed making way for what is now Seven Dwarves Mine Train.
3. Disney’s MGM Studios
Most people will remember this one – Disney’s Hollywood Studios used to be called MGM Studios. The name was changed in January 2008 to reflect a new era of Hollywood movies, moving on from the MGM golden age. Hollywood Studios is about to change name again, as we reported here, so keep updated on that!
4. Delta Dreamflight at Magic Kingdom
Dreamflight was an attraction at Magic Kingdom that opened in June 1989 and closed in January 1998. It was sponsored by Delta until 1996. Dreamflight offered guests a flight experience based upon a popup book. It was replaced by Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, which is featured in our top park rides here.
5. Barbie at Epcot
Barbie was around for a very short stint at Disney’s Epcot. We managed to see her in June 1994. She appeared at Epcot with Ken and her cousin for a short-lasted show and autograph sessions.
6. The Sorcerer’s Hat at Hollywood Studios
The Sorcerer’s Hat was the centre point for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. After first appearing in September 2001, it was removed from the park in January 2015 as part of the changes that Disney are making within the park. Many people will still remember this, but we’ve included this for nostalgia as it’s a piece of Disney that will be sorely missed in Hollywood Studios.
