    Talking Old/Abandoned Traces of Disneyland

    Anyone know of any traces of rides, attractions, signs, restaurants, logos etc. in Disneyland/DCA/Resort that are no longer in use, should not be there, and are lying vacant and unused? Anything visible of past relics of Disneyland that have since been shuttered but are still easily visible to guests. I'm not really talking about nods to past attractions but rather things that Disney has left in the parks that have not been removed for some reason or another. Photos appreciated!

    I know the old track for Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland is still along the Rivers of America. You can see it on the Mark Twain and you can see the two tunnels from Big Thunder Trail! Sorry I don't have a picture

    Obviously the PeopleMover tracks. I know a lot of the signage in Downtown Disney still uses the resort logo from when California Adventure opened ( http://www.hospitalityonline.com/bra...gif?1329184356 ).

    Don't forget the old Skyway platform in Fantasyland, up behind Casey Jr.

    If I remember correctly, at the entry to Tomorrowland, on the side of the building flanking the entrance, you can see the patterns indicating snowflakes, referencing to Adventure Thru Inner Space, which was there before Star Tours.

    Does Innoventions count as being used? Otherwise, America Sings.

    Swissapolka record at Tarzan's Treehouse is an homage to the Swiss Family Treehouse.

    Pond by path in back of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is the old Bear River from the Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland and the tunnel is above the pond. A trestle took the trains over the river. A few buttes at Big Thunder Ranch are the originals from Nature's Wonderland. I believe the train in the above photo has been removed and stored somewhere.

    The abandoned Aladdin's Oasis was once the Tahitian Terrace.

    Motor Boat Cruise dock is now a smoking area.

    For that matter, there's almost the entire cast of America Sings in Splash Mountain.

    Plus the "phantom fish" jumping in the pond.

    The rockwork at the entrance to Big Thunder Ranch is part of the old Living Desert.

    Is there still a keelboat or am I thinking of Paris?

    The chain that blocks California Screamin's wheelchair exit has the old Disney's California Adventure logo hanging from it.
