For those lucky enough to go, some of the greatest childhood memories come from family trips to Walt Disney Theme parks. The attractions have a timeless quality that makes them hard to forget. The Disney franchise has expanded over the years, with new rides and theme parks being developed all over the world. While most of these ideas come to fruition, a lot of them don’t see the light of day. For example, there is an alarming amount of Walt Disney World attractions that, unfortunately, didn’t make the cut for one reason or another. This list highlights 15 of these rides/attractions and gives a brief history of their development. Disney has the tendency to bring back old attractions, but it’s highly unlikely that any of these will see the light of day.
This ride was originally going to built in the Muppet area of Disney’s Hollywood Studio. In the vein of The Great Movie Ride, this slow moving attraction would have journeyed through the history of The Muppet movies Unfortunately, the attraction never got past the design stage.
Bullet Trains are a pretty marvelous invention. Disney wanted to capture that wonder and make a ride out of it. Originally planned to be in the Japan Pavilion of Epcot, this CircleVision 360 inspired show would have simulated the experience of riding one of these awesome trains, speeding past iconic landmarks.
The Godzilla Train Ride was said to have been similar to the Bullet Train attraction, but it would feature the monstrous Godzilla attacking the compartment that the guests were in. This was also intended to be part of Epcot’s Japan Pavilion.
