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!
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.

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.

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.
