PeopleMover
Adventures Thru InnerSpace
Skyway
Country Bear Jamboree (or is that still there?)
Are we there yet? When can we go back?

I don't know what's worse, the anticipation of going or the withdrawals after getting home.

CBJ is no longer at DLR. it was moved to WDW.

Skyway since this was the only ride my mother would ride every trip. :mickey:
Lot of memories up in that Skyway.

My most missed ride is the Skyway. My favorite part was the fantasyland station.
Flying over Disneyland was awesome! :D

Country Bear Jamboree (which was NOT MOVED the WDW--they have always had one) That Pooh replaced Country Bears in CA and Toad in FL.

Also, I miss the skyway, although it always scared me to be up in that vehicle riding on a cable, the views were amazing--especially at night.

That would be correct (for those who think otherwise). If anything, the Disneyland version is a copy of WDW, as the WDW version opened October 1, 1971, and DLR's opened March 4, 1972. see here for more info

My favorite as well, and most anticipated part of the ride!

I remember riding on the PeopleMover while Star Tours was under construction, before they put up the walls. I was able to see some of the inner workings while it was being built. I miss that ride :(

I'm too young (~20) to remember any of the "original" rides, however, I definitely preferred the Swiss Family Treehouse, to the Tarzan copy!!

From all the pictures/video I've seen though, I definitely wish I could have rode the PeopleMover!! It would have been awesome to see the "inside" of Tomorrowland!! I did Rocket Rods when it was around, but it was too fast to take in the sights, too bad Disney won't let you walk the track!!

Also, seeing Tomorrowland as Walt intended it would be amazing. I mean, there's a scale model X-wing above the Starcade that no one gets to see anymore even!!

My all time "wish-you-were-here-ride" is the peoplemover. I still also have a very soft spot for "Adventures Thru Tnner Space" "Mission to Mars" and of course "Skyway."


Funny though, I never liked Country Bear Jamboree...I was probably one of the only people happy to see that thing go. :wink:

Peoplemover
Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse
Adventures thru Inner Space (I thought I was never going to be normal size again)
Country Bears (I saw both versions but remember Vacation Hoedown better)
America Sings


I know this wasn't in the park, but does anyone remember Fantasy Waters from the Disneyland Hotel? It was almost like having a private show since there was hardly anyone over there (especially later in the evenings).
