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.
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
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.
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
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>1=10269

Growing up is however, optional
Re: 10 Things I Miss About Disneyland - MSN.com (merged)
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.
