It looks like Disneyland is bringing back their classic electrical parade, this time in DCA, according to this article

http://ocresort.freedomblogging.com/2009/0...-way-back/6967/

This is kinda new territory for Disney though. Usually if an attraction is gone, it's gone for good. But recently they brought back Sleeping Beauty's Castle Walk through, which had been gone for quite some time too.

So it got me thinking of what if Disney World catches the returning attraction bug? What attractions of Disney's Past would you like to see return?

Wonders of Life. Heck, half the equipment is still in there in the respective spots. The rest is in storage.

*Might want to make a disclaimer saying AC Club doesn't count. Because at this point, and with what has been said, it's obvious it's not*

Well really i think the Adventuerer's Club could find a good home in one of the parks myself. Animal Kingdom is perfect, or even AdventureLand in Magic Kingdom.

And I Didn't want to bring it up till after Con Galoosh, but i've heard PI may make a come back from unofficial sources. After they build some new restaurants, what remains of the clubs may re-open

Quite frankly, I'm sick of hearing about unofficial sources (Im not saying it as an attack on you). 95% of the community (online, at work and friends) have said they've moved on. With as many cutbacks that have happen the past week and what was said at the shareholders meeting, I'm willing to bet against it.

Now, had the whole Flamingo Crossing rumor ever picked up more steam, I might buy the theory but not anymore. (Those that didn't know the rumor: Apparently a building was being set aside for a comedy club that was to be used as a "sequel" to the storyline of the club)

I'm right there with you. I heard this a few months ago from my "unofficial Source" and didn't want to bring it up unless it was very directly relevant to a situation. I'm not a shareholder so i don't know what was said in the meeting, but i doubt it would happen, though it is always a fun rumor lol

The question was brought up from a group who was there at the meeting and asked it directly to Iger (I believe it was him): Will the company ever reconsider reopening the Adventurer's Club?

To which they were given the reply: No, absolutely not.

Which goes to prove that like in the movie, Pleasure Island, turns people into jackasses. (Thank you Iger or whoever gave that answer)

Well Iger, like all company head, or Presidents, has fallen to the same old story.

At first he seems a lot better than the last guy, and does a few things right, and than screws up and turns into an idiot that we all hate, until the next person comes and restarts the process.

Well, the MSEP never really went away, it just kept switching locations.

I think it is possible for old attractions to return, but the situation has to be right. In the case of the MSEP, it's actually been running during peak seasons at DCA for years now.

The Sleeping Beauty Castle wakthrough probably reopened because no attraction had replaced it and because the 50th anniversary of the film led to Disneyland management discovering what the walkthrough used to be like.

I think if a new attraction has moved into the space occupied by an attraction, the old attraction will probably remain in Yesterland.

I know i for one would love to see 20,000 Leagues at WDW. Not the nemo version at Disneyland, the real deal, and since a new Leagues Prequel is in the works, who knows.

I definitely would say for my A list ...the Adventurers Club, Tapestry of Dreams/Nations, the original Imagination, Mr. Toad and the Christmas Country Bear show. On my B list... Horizons, the original Living Seas (movie included but updated) and the Fireworks Factory.

Me 2. That could work...there are rumors of a new attraction going there, but I don't know if anything is true or not.

I was quite young when I went to WDW for the first time, so the one ride that I remember from then that is gone is Captain EO.
I know that Michael Jackson has a bad rep right now, but I really loved that show when I was a kid.

Sorry, Darth Stitch, but I can't see that being the case here. Iger is still doing a great job of getting Disney back on track.

You're only saying that he's bad because he's made decisions that you personally don't agree and because of things the company has had to do lately because of the economy.

That's a big problem that I see on one too many forums. If someone "on the inside" makes just ONE decision that one person disagrees with, they immediately get labeled as being "bad for the company". A VERY flawed mentality, if you ask me...

I've been reading Michael Eisner's autobiography, and there were definitely bad decisions that he made. However, I don't get the feeling that Iger is making any of those. Of course, I don't have all the details of what goes on behind closed doors. Let's just say that Iger hasn't been attacked with eggs when he tries to launch a new project (like Eisner was in Paris when they announced EuroDisney)

It's too early to make final calls on Iger. I, for one, think that the parks will benefit greatly for years to come because of Iger's decision to acquire Pixar and bring John Lasseter over to both feature animation and the parks.

And in Eisner's defense, Walt himself could have announced EuroDisney and some people would have thrown eggs at him. I'll let Eisner have it when I think he deserves criticism, but building a Disney resort in Europe was not a bad decision.
