12 Things You’ll Never See Again at Walt Disney World

There are so many things to experience, see, eat, hear and do at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, that you’d be hard-pressed to find yourself bored at any time during your Disney trip. After all, there’s so much fun packed into every square foot of this massive land of fantasy, that there’s no way to experience everything it has to offer in one trip. Or two. Or even three! Disney Imagineers are constantly at work “re-imagining” Disney World, which sometimes means building new lands, and sometimes it means closing some experiences to make room for the new ones. And you might think that with all there is to see and do that Guests would never miss anything from the past at Disney World. But on the contrary, Guests think very fondly on attractions and experiences of days gone by at the most magical place on earth. And though we love everything about Disney World, there are some things we miss about the parks of yesteryear—things that we will never see again at Disney. Here are 12 of them.

About Rebekah Tyndall Burkett

Rebekah grew up in Forney, Texas and lives just outside of Dallas. She’s been a Disney superfan since childhood, experiencing the magic at Walt Disney World for the first time at the age of 11. Journeys to Neverland are at least a yearly occurrence for her, her husband and her four children (the Fab Four). When they go to the parks, they stay in Florida for three weeks at a time. Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories. Her hobbies include creative writing, paper crafting and interviewing Imagineers. She is also an advocate for Autism Awareness and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds.
