    Re: My Magic Kingdom Timeline

    This park used to be great till they closed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Ever since then, this park has been on a downwards slope, with no signs of it ever emerging from it.

    You should also list when things were closed.

    A marker mainly. I really wish the ride was still there though. I only got to ride it when I was 4. I wish I got to experience Subs minus Nemo, when I was old enough to remember them.

    Nice, thanks. One question...Main Street Cinema started 1991? Or is that just a typo?

    Frankly. I never loved the ride. The lines were almost always bad. And the effects were well past its primed. It would have been nice if they figured out a way to soup it up though. The Tokyo DisneySea looks cool for example

    Re: My Magic Kingdom Timeline

    Wow great list must have taken you a while to compile all the info.

    First things that jumped off the page for me was in the very beginning of list 1971 Main St Cinema says 1991-1998. Also in 1986 the "Diamond Horseshoe Revue was renamed to the Diamond Horseshoe Revue" And what do you mean about "temporary buildings refurbished into apartments" in 1990 what not sure what that means.

    Only one question though with that much passion why on earth haven't you made you way to WDW yet?

    Penny Arcade (1971-1995) Sorry Typo

    Diamond Horseshoe Revue was renamed Diamond Horseshoe Jamboree in 1986.

    The Mickey's Birthdayland building were temporary buiildings since Birthdayland was only going to be a temporary land so when Starland was mad, the building were rebuilt to withstand more time.

    Three reasons why I havent gone yet, my parents never took me when i was a kid like i wanted to, I have no money right now and no one really wants to go with me so i guess im gonna wait till my son gets older.
