Flashback: Attractions no longer at Walt Disney World's Fantasyland
Fans of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride came out in force with signs and T-shirts to protest the closing of 1 of the Magic Kingdom's original rides on Sept. 8, 1998. (STEPHEN M. DOWELL, ORLANDO SENTINEL / September 8, 1998)
•Skyway, an aerial lift that connected to Tomorrowland. It closed in 1999, several months after a worker died after being hit by one of the gondolas and falling 40 feet. The station now serves primarily as stroller parking.
•Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, a raucous-for-Disney dark ride that incorporated a scene from Hell. It was kindly replaced by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in 1998.
•20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, a submarine-themed ride that took guests below the surface of the Fantasyland lagoon. Rumors of closure dogged the ride for years, and eventually Pooh's Playful Spot, a playground, opened on dry land there in 1994.
•Mickey Mouse Revue, an animatronic show with an orchestra made up of Disney characters. It was an E ticket but closed in 1980. The building has housed Magic Journeys, Legend of the Lion King and the current 3-D presentation, Mickey's PhilharMagic, which debuted in 2003.
