    Mr Toad! I loved that borderline insane ride. I actually scored one of those "vintage" Mr Toad shirts at the Disney outlet on International Drive last month on sale. I've worn it to Busch Gardens (of all places) twice now and have received a lot of comments on it.

    OMG... Mickey Mouse Revue! First time I saw this was 1978. I was 3 and we hadn't seen Mickey in the park yet. Of course 3 year old me thought AA Mickey was the real deal and at the end of the show when AA Mickey said "Thanks for coming" and the curtain closed, the theatre was silent except for me, who belted out at the top of my lungs, "MICKEY! MICKEY! DON'T GOOOOO!!!" The WHOLE THEATRE busted out laughing and my parents wanted to DIE! Oh yeah and I remember during the Three Caballeros part, Pachito firing his pistols scared me.
    HAHA

    Actually, one minor correction: in this thread, there is more to say about Walt Disney World, with the resort and the hotels and what was once there, before October 1st 1982.

    OK, I have shared some photos & videos, now I will ask you of this question: Why didn't they include a general "fantasyland village" remodel (like DLR & DLP) in their plans?

    We're going to Florida to see the Carousel of Progress, the Country Bears, and the other 43 robotic presidents. I like Disney parks to have many differences. I wish each one had a different Soarin'.
