    Re: Story Book Lane... your thoughts.

    Well I don't know what could replace it but it seems like the type of ride that Disney would be getting rid of soon, or retheme it totally to something else such as the Submarine Voyage.

    You've got to have SOME rides for the 3 and 4 year olds.

    Now POOH, on the other hand, can go buh-bye tomorrow!

    BRING BACK THE BEARS!

    Re: Story Book Lane... your thoughts.

    I just love Storybookland!!!! Everything is so well done, the narrations are very cute, and come on... GIANT DUCKS!

    The only thing I would change is the speaker system. I'm a little hard of hearing and its very difficult for me to make out what the guides are saying sometimes.

    Re: Story Book Lane... your thoughts.

    StorybookLand should definitely stay.

    I'm not even sure why this topic would be created in the first place. What would be gained by removing it? Add a standard dark ride in its place? Maybe a hyper-online-interactive-VMKFueled-DisneyPresentationOfAPixarProduction-synergistic-exit through the gift shop dark ride?

    What harm does StorybookLand do operating there? It always has a line of people, it's an entertaining and thorougly unique attraction, and it's something that would never be created in this rather charmless modern age.

    It's not a ride I need to do every single visit to Disneyland, but it's a wonderful attraction and it really serves a valuable purpose for a big chunk of the Disneyland visitor demographic. Yay StorybookLand!

    I have to agree with Storybook boats staying. I love it! Again, it's so much better at night.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I've only been on it 3 times. the night journey was the best. I liked it. I would go on it more, but I don't want to wait in the line.

    Like the Enchanted Tiki Room, Casey Jr. and Peter Pan's Flight, Storybook Land is an attraction I loved as a small child, then dismissed as "stupid and boring" as an angst-ridden teen, and now love again as an adult. May it never be banished to Yesterland! It epitomizes the charm of Walt's original vision and is also a tribute to the skill of the DL landscapers.

    Its a great little attraction that makes DL unique.

    Most of these new rides Disney are producing lack a lot of the charm that Story Book has.

    Can it be improved?

    Yes, it certainly can. Maybe make it more of a thrill and do the Monstro tongue slide thing that was originally planned for the attraction.

    Re: Story Book Lane... your thoughts.

    And plus Story Book land is a hell of a lot better than what was there before on opening day- which was just dirt!

    I think it was originally called just the Canal Boats of the World, but was referred to "Mud Banks of the World" because there was initially nothing to see!

    Luckily, it was quickly changed to Story Book Land on September 16, 1955.

    So, don't complain!

    I'm quite sure that the "let's replace it with a new night time water show. And oh by the way my company makes custom night time water show equipment. blah blah blah." Isn't that the theme I've detected?

    Oh I LOVE the Storybookland Canal Boats! Leave them in! They're so charming, truly.
    I'd be way too scared it'd get replaced with something cheesy and on the cheap. I don't like Disney's "filler" rides. It's like Chinese food. You eat it, and you're craving more in no time.

    That's a very good motto!

    Quite right, and as someone else noted, WALT DISNEY loved minatures, which is how this giant train set we know today as Disneyland came into being. If you dont believe me, follow along how the backyard miniature railroads and his collection of minatures in his office turned into early plans for a real train on an old West train track behind the Burbank studio, to today's Magic Kingdom.

    It all started with a mouse... and with miniatures.
