Disney Ride Through Videos of Extinct Attractions Part 1

Everyone is writing stories about ride through videos and how we should watch them right now. Most people only got to Disney once every year or five, so they probably were already watching them. But did you know that you can see ride-throughs of extinct attractions too?

Today I have complied some YouTube videos that showcase the history and wonder of attractions from the past. Some of you may remember these and some of you may not, but it’s fun to look at! This is part one and more will follow.

The only down side is that cameras then couldn’t take video like the cameras now, so they can get very dark in places. But we’ll still take a look!

First up Horizons!

Horizons is an attraction nearly everyone has heard of. After it closed it became Mission Space, but personally I still prefer the original attraction.

Retro WDW has posted a fantastic version of it.  (There will be a 3D version coming soon too!)

Another extinct EPCOT attraction is the World of Motion. It later became Test Track.

This video comes from YouTube channel Nick.

Journey into Imagination is another one that people wish would come back.

The original version was far superior to the one we have today. No video can do it justice, but this one give you a look at the paintings and queue before you entered the attraction. I miss it!

This one comes from Widen Your World on YouTube.

There’s also this one from Juice Pod on YouTube. The colors may be better in places.

Body Wars

Body Wars was once part of the Wonders of Life Pavilion, that is now becoming the Disney Play Pavilion. I remember waiting at rope drop to get to it quickly. Once I even answered a trivia question correctly and got myself, my siblings, and my sister’s friend in early!

This version comes from YouTube channel Central Florida Sights and Sounds

Of course we couldn’t have Body Wars without Cranium Command. RIP Buzzy.

This one comes to us from WDWNT’s YouTube Channel.

There is a look at a few extinct Disney attraction (all EPCOT) for you to enjoy. I will be posting more shortly.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids!
