    Which ride(s) in DL would be devastating for you to lose?

    Ok for me it would be Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Indy, BTMRR, Matterhorn and POTC. I would go crazy if those rides were not there!
    So after 2 full days in a row of walking around disneyland and a four hour practice, I finally understand why my doctor told me to take it easy on my knee I still cant wait to do it again

    All of us who were fans of Skyway, PeopleMover, and Adventures Thru Innerspace have all been there, done that.

    When the PeopleMover closed, we went on it a couple months before it's closure. Without the internet we know today, the ride was shut down quietly. There was only one subtle clue I saw that could have meant the ride had closed, and that was the Toy Story Funhouse when it was in Tomorrowland (inside what became Redd Rocket's I believe). That one clue was a large figure of Woody sitting on the track. Of course, that was around during the off season and off season means weekend and holiday operation for the PeopleMover. We arrived in Tomorrowland in 1996 to find the ride was gone The track was empty and attraction signage was gone. The platform had been left alone that year as it was. There were no refurb walls yet. You could see the speed ramps intact and trash cans and planters were moved to block the attraction entrance and exit.

    So I've already been down this road.

    If you've ever wondered what it would feel like to lose an attraction, think of the empty feeling you had when you last went to Disneyland (or DCA) and you saw your favorite attraction down for refurbishment. It's feels like that.

    I think I would miss any of the current rides if they closed! However, even when they do close, new ones open so you get to enjoy all new experiences! I know I was very sad to see that, when I returned in 2007 after not having been for 20 years, that they didn't have the sleeping beauty castle walk through any more, but now I cant wait to go see next year since it has been re-opened!

    Matterhorn.

    First roller coaster I ever went on when I was finally big enough, never miss at least one ride on any trip. Also a nice cuddle ride.

    In the days of the Harbor entrance to the parking lot, it was your first visual cue that you were nearly there.

    "Are we there yet?"
    "No."
    "Are we there yet?"
    "No."
    "Are we there yet?"
    "No."
    "Are we th..... MATTERHORN!!!!"

    Wow..there are actually only 2 or 3 attractions I WOULDN'T mind losing. All the attractions hold some sort of sentimental value. But I'll go with the Matterhorn. It's a classic that can only be found in Disneyland!

    POTC and HM would be the too I'd be most devastated over. I still think I'd be upset over anything else too. I even sent Disney an email when Country Bears was closing, to let them know how special it was. Little good it did me, but I tried!

    POTC and the Haunted Mansion. I would probably cry ;(

    Si vous voulez venir danser aussi, le ticket d’entrée n’est jamais gratuit.

    How about if I just name off the rides that should go?

    The Pooh ride and HISTA. Everything else is just fine where it is with the exception of the Rocket Jets needing to be back on the platform where it belongs.

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    Matterhorn.

    Because it's one of the park's icons AND a great classic, timeless ride.
