After watching the CA Adventure TV special, I thought of a question I'd like to ask you MouseWaiters out there... As incredible as Disney Imagineering is, they have had their share of flops over the years. What is your top attraction/restaurant/show in the parks from the past or present that made you want to exclaim, "What were they thinking?!?"

I think changing Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse to Tarzan was a bad idea. I also prefer the rockets on top of the Peoplemover platform. The empty Peoplemover track is a constant reminder of what should be there. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 8:24AM
This is so true, Though the rockets provide a nice touch of tomorrow at the entrance of tomorrow land where it is now, they were more exciting when they were higher up. If only the imagineers would do something with that "setup" that's up there now. A light show or something. - imtheghostinthehatbox  14.5 #8764 9:01AM
Yeah, I've been going to Disneyland for 52 years now, and that empty track to me is the greatest missed opportunity I can recall. Seeing vast tonnage of empty concrete and steel year after year is, kind of a "fail" in my opinion. The creativity of the imagineers over the almost 58 years of Disneyland's existence is second to none, and I believe the reason it is still empty falls on the hands of the people "upstairs". It's time for them to come "downstairs" and just commit to fixing it by putting the people mover back and expanding it to make it a true People Mover! - CVDisneyland  411.2 #541 9:33AM
I agree! I miss the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse :( - TicTocCroc  235.3 #1534 9:38AM
I read that the people mover had tons of accidents involving stupid teens jumping in and out of it and getting body parts stuck. - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  341.1 #702 9:45AM
I miss Country Bears Jamboree, America Sings and People Mover. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 1:24PM
First thing that comes to mind is the space that innoventions is taking up, bring back the people mover! - ribidib  1187.7 #147 12:40PM
Bring back Country Bear Jamboree! - CMsMom  446.7 #493 12:48PM
Rocket Rods were bad and good. They looked kinda cool but Disney should have figured out a way to make them run properly. And when they didn't, they should have brought the Peoplemover back. Just my opinion. πŸš€ - minigirl1156  771.9 #243 1:06PM
That park replacement where the Maliboomer used to be. Eh... - LifeyLand  82.1 #3898 9:40AM
Hollywood land in general. There is literally nothing there - vincentchase1  672.9 #299 12:38PM
So... Tower of Terror just doesn't account for anything? lol - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 12:54PM
the band at Mad T. Restaurant would be Pizza port, they should have themed after Pizza Planet in Toy Story. - vincentchase1  672.9 #299 12:55PM
I know its considered Hollywood land but its placement could have been better IMO. - vincentchase1  672.9 #299 12:57PM
HTH, from a storytelling standpoint, isn't supposed to be in the limelight of the Los Angeles skyline anymore. It is in a forgotten part of town (the "dark side" of Hollywood), off the beaten path. I still think the location makes sense. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 1:30PM
Agree and disagree. There is alot of wasted space there, but the tower is well placed, so I agree there with JR, but that area needs something. - imtheghostinthehatbox  14.5 #8764 9:05AM
Toon Town. - BambooMike  133.8 #2983 12:50PM
Seriously. It needs to go now. - handstamp  167.4 #2444 8:10AM
nooooo! I love toon town! - GarnerPhotography  324.9 #777 8:14AM
Yes toon town should go now. Alot of nothing and wasted space. - imtheghostinthehatbox  14.5 #8764 9:03AM
Super Star Limo...it was bizarre!! - Linzee  1188.1 #146 12:55PM
I would also like to add the OSHA fix on Alice should have been made better years ago, it's just ugly and sad. - Linzee  1188.1 #146 1:00PM
What is the fix? - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 8:46AM
The ugly plywood and railings in the upper outdoor portion - Linzee  1188.1 #146 9:11AM
The fact that you can walk quite a ways in DCA and not pass a single ride. - CantWait  1111.1 #164 1:34PM
Superstar Limo. o..m..g.. - tuesday737  1283.4 #134 8:35AM
how dare you!!! that was my favourite ride!!! - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 9:40AM
Adding Jack Sparrow to Pirates. :( - happiestplace  275.5 #1108 9:34AM
It would have been fine if he was just in up to three scenes. But I think they went overboard. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #525 9:41AM
IMO Finding Nemo.... I just dont get it. Such a miserable process to climb down into that tiny claustrophobic submarine, just to watch a tv screen... Not for me. - lohofosho  785.0 #235 9:39AM
Agreed!! - TicTocCroc  235.3 #1534 9:46AM
I would love to see the return o the peoplemover! It is too bad they took it out. It would have been neat to have my kids be able to grow up with it. It was such a classic. Also, the front of Alice lost its charm when they had to cover up so much. Hopefully they can come up with some sort of resolution soon! It is Disney, so I am sure they will invent a way to make it work. - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #614 9:57AM
Why did they have to cover up so much of Alice ? - greenalien39  426.8 #517 10:25AM
