Since Disneyland’s opening in 1955, there have been a long list of rides and attractions that have come and gone. Some gave way to more modern and exciting rides, while others became too expensive to maintain. Many of these retired rides still hold a place in the hearts of many Disneyland visitors over the years and they look back on their time with these attractions fondly.
The land with the most retired rides is not surprisingly Tomorrowland. The land of the future has the most ride turnover for obvious reasons, but there are also a number of early attractions that didn’t last long as Walt and company learned more about what visitors wanted in those early days of the park. Some rides just broke down a lot, became antiquated or needed to go to make way for bigger, better and newer attractions.
