Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Earlier this week I wrote about World of Motion and discovered a few (OK, 2) fans of the old ride.  My daughter suggested that Disney should bring back more old Disney attractions similar to what they did with Captain EO.  I think this is a great idea but be careful what you wish for.

Go– don’t bring back “Tapestry of Nations”.  From the lost Epcot website:

The Tapestry of Nations parade was Epcot’s first parade. It featured large puppets but lacked the Disney characters. The parade remained after the celebration and was rejuvenated for the 100 Years of Magic celebration in 2002, and it was renamed Tapestry of Dreams. When the 100 Years of Magic ended, Tapestry of Nations/Dreams finally came to a halt. 

All I have to do is just even hear the hint of the opening strains of this music and I want to scream– heyo, awayo wayo… blah blah blah.  I really did not like this parade at all.  The puppets were freaky and the music was just plain annoying.

Stay, kind of-“Illuminations”-has been the night-time show at Epcot since 1988, and not that it’s gone, but gosh, it really needs to be changed.  If you have never seen it, it is spectacular, but after a few visits, it gets stale.  I don’t really even watch it anymore.   I just park myself on a bench, wait for it to be over and watch the crowds file out of the park.  Not being a pyrotechnics expert, I don’t have any suggestions, but any change would be welcome.

What do you wish Disney would bring back to the parks?

  1. Secret confession: you know we go averagely twice a year..we haven’t stayed for or even considered staying for illuminations in about four years. I is just a one off for us.

  2. I completely understand. I don’t consider this a “must do” anymore. Sometimes I just watch it from our room at the Boardwalk.

    Oh, I actually really liked Tapestry of Nations, but it might have something to do with watching it with my Dad on his last trip to Walt Disney World…

    Illuminations – totally agree it needs to be changed. I enjoy the show, once every few years :)…I love the concept, I’d just like to see it changed up a bit.

    Of course, I’d love to see a modern version of Horizons…Heck, I’d even take the orginal as it was :)!

  4. I can totally understand if the “Tapestry” parade brings back good memories for you. It just wasn’t for me.

    I LOVED Horizons! That would definitely be on my list of attractions to bring back.

  5. Amy, I agree with all of those suggestions. Veggie, veggie, fruit, fruit! I miss that one for sure!
