    What long gone ____ would you most like to have seen?

    What Disneyland ride/attraction/point-of-interest would you most like to have seen before it faded into the mists of time. Having been born in '70, I don't think my first visit to DL was until about 73-74.

    As I studied the attractions and films of Disneyland's past (and being a fan of detailed minitures), I think I would have been enthralled by seeing this in the flesh.....



    This print actually overlooks my living room even though I've only laid eyes on archive footage of it.

    What would you most like to have seen at Disneyland?

    Carousel of Progress/America Sings (I remember going when I was little and wondering what used to be in that building since it was always closed until 1998)
    and
    Mission to Mars

    America Sings I got to see many many times as a child. CoP was long gone by then.

    One of the first attractions I was trained on was M2M. :o Was the absolute easiest gig in the park.

    The Flying Saucers

    OK...I'm giving away my age but I loved the Tomorrowland Flying Saucers that floated on the cushion of air. I understand they were a maintenence nightmare...but they were a lot of fun!

    Ya know... Myth Busters created a sort of reverse flying saucers using vacuum cleaner motors once. That stuff looked fun.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    America Sings and (don't laugh) the Mule Ride LOL! In pics, it looked like it was pretty fun, and there aren't too many places you can ride a mule these days.

    Rainbow Mine Train, and any awesome ideas that Walt Disney had for the City Of Tommorrow. Even the House of Tommorrow I was curious what they thought about that. Tommorrowland back then was supposed to be what it would be like in 1986. I did Ride ATIS BEFORE IT CLOSED. Also Mission to Mars.

    I am gonna get pummeled for saying this but... I always wanted to ride Superstar Limo because my wife just goes on and on and on about how bad it was... and I missed it. I mean, it makes it really hard for me to make fun of a ride I have never experienced. I know so many people who make fun of the film Showgirls, but find that very few have actually seen it - so how can they make fun? I however, have sat thru Showgirls and every nerve ending in my body was screaming for death! Is it too much to want the same experience from SSL? To experience the agony of Rubber Woopi and Robo Cher?

    Mike Fink Keel Boats .... my oldest boy is going through a "Davey Crockett" phase (he got some DVDs for Christmas) , I'd love to share the experience with him.

    I am fortunate to have experienced CoP (and seen the future city model). ATIS, MBC, and MTRTNW. But I think I was afraid of the Burros ......

    Ohhhh..... I'm feeling so old. I remember all those rides which people are talking about. Personally I would have loved to try the flying saucers to see if they really live up to all the hype and nostalgia around them.
