Top 10 Defunct Disney World Attractions


Many classic older attractions at Disney World have fallen by the wayside over the years as Disney replaces them with newer (and occasionally better) ones such as Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom; Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios; The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot; and Stitch’s Great Escape at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Here’s a brief list of some “long gone” but not forgotten Disney World attractions:


Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Despite an extensive “Save the Toad” campaign, Disney’s Magic
Kingdom replaced Mr. Toad with The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in 1998.


20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. One of the original attractions at Disney’s Magic
Kingdom, 20,000 Leagues closed in 1994 and has been replaced by "New Fantasyland."


If You Had Wings. Sponsored by Eastern Airlines, If You Had Wings was one of the
few rides at Disney’s Magic Kingdom that rarely drew a line. It was replaced by If You
Could Fly in 1987 and now Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin stands on the site.


ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. This thrilling attraction opened at the site of the
former Mission to Mars in Tomorrowland in 1995. ExtraTERRORestrial gained a cult
following but was replaced by Stitch’s Great Escape.


World of Motion. Sponsored by General Motors, World of Motion was one of Epcot’s
original attractions. The ride offered a humorous look at the history of transportation and
closed in 1996 to make way for Test Track.


Who Wants to be a Millionaire – Play It! Based on the hit ABC TV show, this Disney-MGM Studios
(now Disney's Hollywood Studios) attraction closed in 2006 along Mickey Avenue.


Plaza Swan Boats. Opened in 1973, the D-ticket Plaza Swan Boats embarked from two
Magic Kingdom loading docks: one near the entrance to Tomorrowland and the other near
the Plaza Restaurant. The Plaza Swan Boats stopped running in 1983.


Mickey Mouse Revue. One of the Magic Kingdom’s original attractions, Mickey Mouse
Revue opened in Fantasyland in 1971 and featured an audio-animatronic orchestra of
popular Disney characters singing such classics as “When You Wish Upon a Star” and
“Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee.” The Mickey Mouse Revue closed in 1980 and was shipped to Tokyo
Disneyland. Mickey’s PhilharMagic now occupies the site.

Flight to the Moon. Hosted by Mr. Tom Morrow, this “state-of-the-art” Tomorrowland
attraction opened on Christmas Eve, 1971 and became hopelessly outdated by 1975 when
it was replaced by Mission to Mars. Stitch’s Great Escape now occupies the site.


Horizons. This Epcot ride made its debut in 1983 and closed in 1999 to make way for Mission: SPACE. It has developed somewhat of a cult following over the years.
