Walt Disney World has presented guests with unforgettable experiences since October 1, 1971 – over five decades. During this time, the resort has grown and expanded as a world-class destination, including four theme parks, two water parks, thirty-some-odd hotels, and countless shopping and dining options.
But over the course of the past fifty-plus years, there have been some favorite experiences that have been closed, canceled, and often replaced. In Disney’s quest to continue providing current, relevant guest experiences, it is inevitable that some favorite attractions eventually see the chopping block.
Come remember some long lost favorites as we explore the Disney Days of Yore. We’ll visit former attractions and experiences in Walt Disney World, including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. We’ll also dip into Disneyland here and there. After all, that’s Walt’s park that started it all.
