Every ride at Disney World has history to it. No matter what type of history it is. It could be what ride was there before it, or just when or how the ride was built. Every Disney World ride has history, no matter what it is.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Example
The first fun example of Disney ride history is The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. This ride used to be Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, which was an opening day ride at Disney World. Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride closed on September 7th 1998, to make way for Winnie the Pooh ride. So now, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is on the same track that Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride was on! So in a way, you are riding on two rides at once! But, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride isn’t completely gone… if you look to your left right after entering Owl’s house, you will see a picture of Mr. Toad handing over a deed to Owl. I think that is so cool! It shows that part of Mr. Toad will always still be a part of that ride, and more importantly, Magic Kingdom.
Seven Dwarf Mine Train
The second interesting Disney World ride history fact is an old ride that used to be at Disney World called, Snow White’s Scary Adventures. This ride was an opening day attraction at both Disneyland, and Disney World. It held many memories to people who had been to it at Disneyland, and Disney World. Snow White’s Scary Adventures closed on May 31st, 2012… permanently. No one knows exactly why it closed. It could have been because it was too scary for young kids or even just anyone. Or, it could’ve been because the ride became outdated. It would have been outdated because younger audiences barely even know the story of Snow White. Now, there is a newer Snow White themed attraction in Disney World called, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which is not a dark ride, but a coaster. The original Snow White’s Scary Adventures still lives on in Disneyland.
There are a lot more rides in Disney World that have history to them. Like, Frozen Ever After, which I have already talked about. Some of these changes like Snow White’s Scary Adventures might forever remain Disney history. But, that is what makes Disney so special!
