"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary... Impossible is nothing."

And yet, the travelling Disneyland exhibit that was recently at the Oakland Museum had several of them from over the years to show how things have changed in them.
Sorry, I don't see how that relates. Most of the things in the exhibit came from WDC itself.
Not from CMs

Personally, I think people think "infamous" is a more positive term than it really is. It's not. It means
"it's so bad, it's famous." IMHO I think that describes SSL well. Anyway, we're
splitting hairs; I think we all agree that SSL was truly bad.

Completely agree... Similarly for people describing Pooh in DL.
Kudos to the person who wrote the guide that called it "infamous", for having a sense of humor .

It appears that the secrecy of the DLR has been breached! Next thing you know, they're going to have a website that posts all sorts of information about future attractions that they're planning before they're officially announced .
I've only seen the ride video. Glad I didn't miss anything. Funny how that is there.

Winnie the Pooh is Pirates of the Carribean compared to Superstar Limo.
Naw, Pooh is more detestable. It removed a technically more
superior, more sophisticated, and more popular attraction
for a quickie ride through painted plywoodland. And the Country
Bears had a 3 different shows that could be used. Pooh is a
stagnant 1 trick pony, and that 1 trick ain't that pretty.
The worst Superstar Limo did was take up 1 or 2 dozen parking
spaces. Plus its a lot more fun to remember SSL as a one of a kind
attraction, which has gained "infamous" notariaty, comparred to
the Pooh ride, which is a few steps below what the WDW and TDL
versions, and falls short of 50 year old dark rides already in DL.
It removed a technically more superior, more sophisticated, and more popular attraction...
I disagree. Country Bear Jamboree (in all its versions) and its Bear Country, were one of the lowest attended and least popular (by Disney's own Guest surveys) shows and areas within Disneyland. The only thing that helped its attendance in later days, was the creation of Splash Mountain and the subsequent "slop" CBJ enjoyed off of that. But even that did not help it that much.
It was such a loser of an attraction, that prior to Splash and the renaming to "Critter Country"..the term "Bear Country" literally became Disney popular nomenclature to mean "dead end" or "dud" within Disneyland.
In fact...when the whole Space Mountain complex was rebuilt...the "Space Place" was so dead of an area...that Disneylanders quickly began to refer to it as "Bear Country East." Meaning a place that nobody went to.
I think a few people's personal opinions and fond remembrances of Country Bear Jamboree...do not reflect the actual general public's opinion of the attraction. Which was never very high at all in California.
