    Heading out to the parks tomorrow and would really like to make sure I visit and photograph any rides that are rumored to be closing to make way for new ones in the next few years. Lights Motors Action, Backlot, and Beauty and the Beast are standing out but if anyone has a list I'd love to condense it all to one thread. Thanks guys!

    The only thing I can think of besides those attractions is the Camp Minnie-Mickey area of AK, which will become Avatarland (or something else, if we are very lucky :sad2:). FotLK will likely be moving, not closing for good, but will not be performing in its current location once construction begins.

    How about CoP? I've heard rumors about this closing in the past but it's such a classic attraction, I hope it doesn't!

    My husband and I just rode through it several times in a row one night because we were tired from a hectic day and it felt SOO good to get off our feet and relax. I hope it doesn't go away!

    I agree with you 100% they have been threatening to get rid of CoP for as long as I can remember but if you think about it its one of the originals from when the park opened and Mr.Disney designed it for the worlds fair in Chicago. As long as they have love for Mr.Disney in the company I cant see them closing it but I've been wrong before and the Disney company has done stupid things before.

    But I still love Disney

    Well a couple of things are a little off in this description of CoP. It is not original from when the park opened, it actually opened at WDW in January 1975, after being relocated from Disneyland.

    Although it was designed by Walt Disney, it wasn't for a Chicago World's Fair but rather the 1964 New York World's Fair. That's where I saw it as a kid for the first time and it was magical then. It was called Progressland at that point and was commissioned by GE. The main theme is electrical progress which was Walt's pitch to GE and of course fit GE's business very well.

    It is historically important because of Walt's involvement and will likely remain for a long time because of that.

    Lion King. The building was originally an open-air theater, and constructed quickly when AK needed something as a placeholder while they decided what to do with Beastly Kingdom because Universal had unveiled something too similar. Now that we are getting Avatarland (cool, but I still want a Beastly Kingdom, with dragons and unicorns (Like in the parking lot)) Camp M/M will likely disappear in its entirety. All those buildings were done quickly and cheaply. Just look at the sinks in the rest rooms.
