Other attractions from the early days of Fantasyland have been closed through the years, including:

Skyway, an aerial lift that connected to Tomorrowland. It closed in 1999, several months after a worker died after being hit by one of the gondolas and falling 40 feet. The station now serves primarily as stroller parking.

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, a raucous-for-Disney dark ride that incorporated a scene from Hell. It was kindly replaced by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in 1998.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, a submarine-themed ride that took guests below the surface of the Fantasyland lagoon. Rumors of closure dogged the ride for years, and eventually Pooh's Playful Spot, a playground, opened on dry land there in 1994.

Mickey Mouse Revue, an animatronic show with an orchestra made up of Disney characters. It was an E ticket but closed in 1980. The building has housed Magic Journeys, Legend of the Lion King and the current 3-D presentation, Mickey's PhilharMagic, which debuted in 2003.
