ill dig up my old pictures - circa 1995-1998 when i was 6-10 - tomorrow, but i love all these older ones! i could never wear heels all day at MK! i can't even imagine it!

as a 9 year old girl i was fascinated by the pink cake, so i guess im also in the minority of loving it! i also like what theyve done for 50. i tried to take pictures of it but it came out horrible!

i feel like i remember the faces on the mickey ice cream bars, but im not sure...had they disappeared before 1995? if not, i definitely downed a few myself!

thought I might be able to answer my own questions by looking at the pics...but couldn't. Do you ever get a question in your mind and just go nuts until you figure out the answer?
What was the BLSRS before it was the BLSRS?

There were lots of reasons why they stopped. Cast members getting hurt, people spitting, throwing stuff, or doing drugs on it, it had to be closed all the time b/c of wind (or rain, or lightning, etc).

The area where Buzz Lightyear is now has gone through many changes over the years....I believe this is how the timeline went....(correct me if I am wrong someone)

If you Had Wings (1972-1987)
Ifyou Could Fly (1987-1989)
Dreamflight?
Take Flight (1989-1998)
Buzz Lightyear (1998)

Thanks to everyone for posting their old pictures, particularly those from the 70's and 80's. What a great trip down memory lane. We have tons of pics from that time, but my darling mother is sort of forgetful and cannot find any of them. This has really inspired me to search again.

We have photos of Donald's Birthday Parade that featured the song "Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy, Happy, Birthday to you!", and it was in 1984.

I will post them in a second.
