“Disneyland will never be completed,” Walt Disney said. “It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” Since 1955, Disney’s Imagineers have created some rides that have thrilled visitors for decades, while others have come and gone. Here’s a roster of vanished attractions―some happily remembered, others barely recalled.
Rocket to the Moon. Opened 1955, became Flight to the Moon in 1967, then Mission to Mars in 1975, which closed in 1992.
Skyway to Tomorrowland. Opened 1956, closed 1994.
Bathroom of Tomorrow. Opened 1956, closed 1960.
Flying Saucers. Opened 1961, closed 1966.
Swiss Family Treehouse. Opened 1962, became Tarzan’s Treehouse 1999.
Carousel of Progress. Opened 1967, moved to Walt Disney World in 1973, was replaced by America Sings in 1974 (which closed in 1988).
