    Re: Little Things We Miss...

    I miss

    walking into Bear Country and hearing Rufus snoreing in his cave above the walkway,

    the people mover,

    having the rockets above the peoplemover and not in front of Tomorrowland,

    America Sings,

    Circlevision,

    The large fritters.. none of this small 3 fritters with dipping sauce stuff,

    The bubble in the front of the monorail,

    Vacationland (the motor home park across from DL),

    Videopolis,

    All the air hockey games on the top floor of Starcade,

    The motorboat cruise,

    The machine in Pieces of Eight where you could print out a pirate madallion with your name on it,

    The monorail cafe.

    and most recently.... The Main Street Electrical Parade (Ok so its only down for a refurb, but I still missed seeing it while I was there last week)

    Re: Little Things We Miss...

    This thread certainly has me reminiscing...

    New parades every year, the kind without show-stops, preceeded by a small float to promote the latest animated movie; The castle walkthrough; Kid-friendly Tom Sawyer Island (Remember the days when we actually used to be able to rock the bridge?); The 2-level Starcade and days when the Crystal Arcade and the Penny Arcade were two different spaces; A BBQ meal on tin plates by Big Thunder Ranch's campfire; Thumper's Easter Egg hunt at Big Thunder Ranch; Waiting an hour to ride the submarines; Two Brothers; The Festival Arena (with an immersive show); Videopolis; Fish n Chips from Fowlers; When parking was $3 or less; When AP's used to be laminated photocards; Sleeping in and then having to park in the Jiminy Cricket section by the electrical towers; the Monorail Cafe (such good food!), and the ability to take the Monorail straight to the DL Hotel.

    They might just bring this one back for you. If they add Fastpass, they might even double the wait.

    Re: Little Things We Miss...

    Oh... one more I forgot... the skyway. I can understand why it was taken out, but it was a great way to cross the park when your feet were hurting you, and when a parade was going on.

    I miss the Metropolis like feel of TommorrowLand. It used to be so much more active.

    What "little thing" about Disneyland has gone missing that you'd like to see again?
    I miss this the most!

    Well, they do still have some bands playing at the CPG, but just not the caliber of the old Big Bands. (Wartime Radio Review IS the exception, and is a very good band)

    Skull Rock and the Pirate ship in Fantasyland
    I still miss a water feature and nice place to eat in Fantasyland). The stores! The one of a kind antique shop, the fantasyland magic shop, the futuristic items in the tomorrowland stores.
    How about a tuna sandwich from the Pirate Ship, eaten by Skull Rock?

    How about some genuine antiques, non-Disney stuff (like was in One of A Kind Shop)?

    How about them ribs? ummmmm...... Yeah, I know Rancho del Zocalo has ribs, but it's not the same.

    Country Bears Christmas, well, OK Country Bears Vacation too.

    The Main Street Electrical Parade
    To OggieBoogie's I would like to add The Main Street Electrical Parade On Main Street in Disneyland

    As soon as I saw the rockets in front of Tomorrowland I said "gee, aren't the Dumbo Jets cute there.

    Yeah, I know I cheated here (a lot), to cut and paste and quote all the other ideas, but those are what I miss.

    My top misses are...

    1. Pre-F! Frontierland/NOS and Mark Twain at night with the Mint Julips and Dixieland bands.

    2. The PeopleMover

    3. The Main Street Electrical Parade [B]on Main Street in Disneyland[B]

    If someone wanted to start putting them back, the above is the order I would like them to reappear as well.

    <sigh>But, well, that was yesterday, is is today, I know they will never come back, but I can still miss and long for them.</sigh>

    Also, Tom, thanks for starting this thread, really neat idea, brings back the memories!

    Re: Little Things We Miss...

    I miss:
    The amazing shrimp cocktails with celery, pineapple and a cayenne spiced Thousand Island dressing that they had at Fowlers Harbor in the early 90's. (I learned how to make them, but my living room doesn't look like Critter Country... yet!)
    The Peoplemover
    The Skyway
    Country Bear Jamboree
    The double cheeseburgers w/bacon and onion rings at Hungry Bear (WHAT?!, I like to eat, okay??)
    Non stop trips on the Disneyland Railroad between New Orleans Sqare and Tomorrowland.
    Carousel of Progress
    The real Penny Arcade
    The Castle walk-thru
    Merlins Magic Shop in Fantasyland
    I'm sure I'll come up with more. Stay tuned...
