    They should bring them back and make them link up to DCA.

    Same with the Peoplemover.

    Same with the Monorail.

    Re: Such a crime!

    JIMINYCRICKETFAN hit it on the head. It was the lawyers and the insurance companies that shut it down not Disney. When the insurance companies tell you the policy would be 1 million dollars cheaper this year if you shut it down what would you do? By the way I think DL's closed in 94 and WDW MK closed in 99.

    Re: Such a crime!

    I came across these old photos today. So I thought I would share them with you.

    I'm not sure what year these photos where taken.

    First shot is looking towards the Matterhorn having just left the Tomorrowland side.





    The second photo is looking down on the Tomorrowland Terrace.
    Notice the LOOOONG line for the Matterhorn.

    No, trust me, it was 1999. We graduated from high school in 1998 (my brother and I are twins) and he did the college program the spring of 1999.

    Sorry, you are simply wrong. The Skyway at Disneyland closed in November 1994.

    Negatives-
    Exposed dark ride building
    People littering during their ride
    Lines haphazardly around park

    I personally think that they did the right thing by taking it down. Although it was a nice ride, it caused too many problems.
    This is the best assessment in this whole thread! I used to like the skyway a lot when it was around. I especially remember using it many times when they were refurbishing Fantasyland. You could easily see the progress being made from up there.

    But herein lies the main problem with the skyway, which I was didn't think about until a fellow micechatter pointed it out to me a few weeks ago: While the skyway was a nice and relaxing ride, it took you above the show buildings where you could see easily all the vents and air conditioning ducts on the tops of the Fantasyland show buildings, reinforcing the fact that they are only warehouses. From the ground, you would never know this.

    My opinion really has changed because of this. The skyway was a nice ride, and I was sad to see it go, but that is one Yesterland ride that I don't think should make a comeback.

    Re: Such a crime!

    Yesterland says this.....

    After November 9, 1994, Disney park guests could still ride the Skyway between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland—but only at Walt Disney World in Florida. On November 9, 1999, exactly five years after the grounding of the Skyway at Disneyland, the Skyway at the Florida’s Magic Kingdom carried its last guest. It had been a popular attraction since the park opened in 1971.
    That is all.

    He was responding to the question of when the Skyway closed at the Magic Kingdom. The Skyway closed in 1994 at Disneyland and 1999 at the Magic Kingdom.

    Sorry, I just find that odd. Had you actually convinced yourself the rides were real?

    If you don't remember it, how can it be a closed page? You never experienced it. It's brand new to you.
    just because i don't remember doesn't mean i didn't ride. my brother loved this thing. and it's a closed page in Disney history

    hope that cleared it up.

    The train takes you behind the scenes as well. The Monorail lets you see backstage too.

    So what's the problem?

    In a real sense, yes.

    "Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy."

    That quote should never be taken lightly. Once people do, only then will I be concerned about Disneyland's future.

    Well, If Walt had no problem with it, I say it's cool.
