When the Imagineers get rolling they come up with some incredible ideas. Unfortunately, they don’t all get made. Even some of the best fall by the wayside. (I don’t know about you, but I’d still give almost anything to ride the version of Indiana Jones Adventure that included the Disneyland Railroad, the Jungle Cruise, and runaway mine cars. What about you?)

Of course, some ideas are dropped for very good reasons. (Three words: Rock Candy Mountain.) And, in some cases, ideas don’t even get beyond the naming phase. Following are some attractions, shops, and shows that were dismissed simply because of the title.

Jungle Book Petting Zoo

Pinocchio’s Cigar Bar

The Old Yeller Experience

Alice in Fantasia: A Psychedelic Voyage

Cool Runnings Bobsleds on the Beach

Song of the Frozen South

Mike lives in Phoenix, Arizona and has two claims to fame. The first is that he was born the day Disneyland opened. So, yes, he is old. The second is that he is the funniest internal auditor in the profession of internal auditing. Yes, a very low bar. Yes, this is akin to being the sanest person in the asylum. So why not combine those two great achievements? Why not combine that love for Disneyland with a slightly offbeat sense of humor? I guess we'll all find out.
