Disney Rides that Don’t Exist Anymore

On July 17, 1955, Walt Disney expanded his animated film empire by opening Disneyland in Anaheim, California—the first Disney theme park. The attraction cost $17 million to build and now brings in almost $3 billion annually. 

Rainbow Caverns Mine Train (1956-1977)

Walt Disney designed Rainbow Caverns Mine Train as part of the Living Desert in Frontierland and launched the ride one year after Disneyland opened.  

Submarine Voyage (1959-1998)

Submarine Voyage replaced two short-lived boat rides on a lagoon in the Tomorrowland area of Disneyland. 

Journey Into Imagination (1983-1998)

Journey Into Imagination—an attraction at Future World in Epcot— featured Dreamfinder, a creative gentleman passionate about sparking new ideas. 

Horizons (1983-1999)

Disney's futuristic attraction Horizons opened on Oct. 1, 1983, exactly one year after Epcot opened. The 15-minute ride carried passengers in a suspended vehicle through a 136,000-square-foot building that depicted scenes of life and work in the 21st century.  

Videopolis (1985-1989)

Videopolis was a trendy teen dance club located in the Fantasyland portion of Disneyland. A 5,000-square-foot outdoor arena offered space for up to 3,000 young guests to dance the night away.  

Dreamflight (1989-1998)

Dreamflight, sponsored by Delta Air Lines, was the third incarnation of an aviation-focused ride originally called If You Had Wings. Located in the Tomorrowland section of Disney World's Magic Kingdom, this attraction included a journey through flight history.
