10 Discontinued Walt Disney World Rides


8. Skyway

Of all the rides of yesteryear that have since been removed, I can understand the reasons why the Skyway is no longer with us. This gondola in the sky giving you a birds-eye view of the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland and Tomorrowland was not a high-capacity ride and the lines were oh-so-long to experience this one-way, exhilarating view of the Magic Kingdom. This ride closed down in 1999, Disney indicating it was time to make room for new and exciting ventures. Though it was only a five-minute experience, I’ll always miss the sway of the bucket-in-the-sky as you felt like a bird hovering over the magical grounds of Disney.
