    They moved part of the monorail when they built Indiana Jones.

    Your right, it was considerable different looking when it was the Rocket Jets: http://www.yesterland.com/rocketjets.html. I don't think the one they placed on the ground is the same unit - but I could be wrong. Somebody correct me if you have more info.

    I'm sure they can move another ride to another land if they really wanted to, considering they've moved Carousel of Progress across the country.

    Yup, I think they are definitely capable of moving attractions. Small World and Lincoln were moved all the way from New York and granted they weren't able to move everything (like the Tower of the Four Winds for example) but the attractions made it and were reassembled at Disneyland. The Set's and vehicles can definitely be relocated from Roger Rabbit but I don't know how much of the track or the facade could actually be salvaged.

    Re: Has Disneyland ever MOVED a ride?

    The Carousel Of Progress went from here to New York, back here, and then back to the East Coast/Florida so, yes, it's gone far.

    But as was the case with iasw, Lincoln and Magic Skyway, only the interior stuff gets shipped. The building stays behind and the interior stuff is housed in a new building. Could you imagine them picking up the World Fair iasw building, putting it on a HUGE flatbed truck and driving it cross-country? Or maybe airlifting it with four big industrial-strength helicopters, one at each corner.

    Re: Has Disneyland ever MOVED a ride?

    Yes I would imagine as in my scenario they probably wouldn't move the entire building, or would they? Not sure of outside of the ride mechanism (track), cars and interior art what all could be treated as a component. On this note, I wonder if Imagineers have guidelines for the portability or at least some type of component guidelines when designing rides.

    They have moved the Monorail station, haven't they? Also the railroad tracks, berm, I believe the land of Tom Sawyer's Island (I could be mistaken)...

    They realigned the track approaching the Tomorrowland station, but I don't believe either station has been relocated. You can't move the Tomorrowland one as the Subs are right below it and the Downtown Disney station was built on the land that the Disneyland Hotel Station once stood on.

    Most likely the level of transfer would depend on the budget.

    If the money was flowing freely, I'd wager Imagineering would triage the entire ride, figure out what was working just fine, what they could improve on, what needed replacement and such. I don't think (unless it were a truly unique structure designed to be moved) that they would move ride buildings, simply because most of them are fairly utilitarian underneath elaborate decoration - as seen in Indy.

    Certain elements would transfer regardless of budget. I mean, look at America Sings - Splash Mountain has nothing to do with it, but the animatronics could easily be retrofitted to a new use so *poof* second lives for all!
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.
