    I just finished reading that and was going to post something about it (great minds think alike ). It was a really nice article. I actually remembered a few of those things.
    I'd rather be at Disneyland

    Re: 10 Things I Miss About Disneyland article

    I'm glad someone else posted about this. I agree with some of it, mostly just about the roaming characters. I do feel like a stalker now when I try to find them, and frantically try to take a picture before they disapear.
    I never got a chance to see some of the things in the artical, they were gone before my time, but I found it interesting.

    LOL

    Perhaps a slasher-movie take on “It’s a Small World,” as Chuckie of “Child’s Play” fame takes a troupe of ethnically diverse dolls on a terrifying yet ultimately heart-warming rampage.

    Re: 10 Things I Miss About Disneyland article

    The author's top ten things he misses about Disneyland:

    10. Flight to the Moon/Mission to Mars
    9. House of the Future
    8. Adventure Thru Inner Space
    7. Carousel of Progress/America Sings
    6. Country Bear Jamboree
    5. Indian Village
    4. Pack Mules
    3. Skyway
    2. Swiss Family Treehouse
    1. Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln/America the Beautiful

    Personally, I would replace Flight to the Moon, Carousel of Progress, Pack Mules and Indian Village with Golden Horseshoe Revue, Tahitian Terrace, Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama and Captain Hook's Pirate Ship/Skull Rock - - but a great list nonetheless, espcially Swiss Family Robinson, Skyway and Adventure Thru Inner Space.

    10 Things I Miss About Disneyland - MSN.com

    MSN reporter Rick Vanderknyff has done a fun article about our beloved park, and the top 10 attractions he misses. The attractions are:

    Rocket to the Moon / Mission to Mars

    Monsanto's House of the Future

    Adventure Thru Inner Space

    Carousel of Progress / America Sings

    Country Bear Jamboree

    The Indian Village

    Rainbow Ridge Pack Mules

    The Skyway

    Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse

    Great Moments with Mr Lincoln / America The Beautiful


    He also has something to say about the lack of 'free-range' characters wandering around the park, where you didn't have to get into a queue just to have your picture taken with them. To read the article, please go to http://cityguides.msn.com/citylife/a...7443&GT1=10269

    Leave it to Disneyland to turn Snow White into the preschool version of Paris Hilton, kids into celebrity stalkers and parents into slightly disgruntled paparazzi.

    I was impressed with the article. It was refreshing to read something from someone who is a big fan of the park, obviously informed and not afraid to talk about faults he finds with the park. It was a nice change of pace from the usual sugar-coated "Disney is the greatest and most perfect place ever!" articles that one usually sees. I'm also glad this one didn't have a picture of Cinderella Castle.

    This attractionówith people in native costume on displayówould never fly today, and rightly so.
    How could anyone find Indian Village offensive?

    Because as a group, if you can prove something offended you, your constituants may be in for a monetary bonus to pay for the obvious pain and suffering.
