This is a list of publicly known Disney attractions that were never built, that is, rides and shows of Disney parks that never reached the final building stage. Some of them were fully designed and not built. Others were concepts, sometimes with preliminary artwork. A few were partially constructed before the plug was pulled. Many were developed as far as it could, but funding was either reallocated, consolidated, and optimized in the "best possible" return of investment. In other major projects, signs of reuse documentation was evident in some of the parks.

Theme parks

Name Description Reference
Disney's America A patriotic park to be located in Haymarket, Virginia.

Theme park lands


Name Development Years Description Reference
Lilliputian Land 1953–1955 A land that was to be located north of Tomorrowland east of Fantasyland. Everything would have been constructed on a greatly reduced scale. "Disneyland and Europe: Walt Disney's First Magic Kingdom".

Mythica Unknown A land inspired by Greek and Roman myths and legends. "Mickey News: What Might Have Been".

Tomorrowland 2055 1993–1994 An update and makeover of Tomorrowland with a more Extraterrestrial theme, (2055 is the centennial of Disneyland). However after Disneyland Paris failed the project was abandond due to budget cuts and replaced by the poorly-received Tomorrowland 1998 overhaul. The update would have featured several new attractions, including Plectu's Intergalactic Revue in the Carousel Building and ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, while retaining Space Mountain, Star Tours, Submarine Voyage, Disneyland Railroad, Disneyland Monorail, Circle-Vison 360, Magic Eye Theater Autopia, and the PeopleMover. The overhaul came so close to happening, that a full music loop was created and tested in the Space Mountain concourse (and is still playing), a mural was tested at the Tomorrowland Terrace (it, too, is still in place), and Imagineers working on the project received jackets with the Tomorrowland 2055 logo emblazoned on it. " Tony Baxter".

"Big City USA" 1976–1984 A New York-themed area where Mickey's Toontown now sits; it was to have featured a big Broadway-style theater that presented live stage shows every day. This idea became the inspiration for the American Waterfront at Tokyo DisneySea. "Jim Hill Media: Another Kingdom That Never Came".

"Land of Legends" 1970s An area based around American literature, folklore, and tall-tales planned for a spot north of Bear Country that would have connected it to Discovery Bay. Attractions included the famous Western River Expedition project as well as dark rides based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Saga of Windwagon Smith. "Passport to Dreams Old and New: All About Western River Expedition, Part Two".

"Discovery Bay" Late 1970s A land that was a tribute to Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Despite a model being showcased in the Preview Center for years and a pilot for a potential TV series based on the land's mythology being produced, the rise of science fiction over high adventure led to the land's eventual cancellation. Elements of the plans were later used at Disneyland Paris and Tokyo DisneySea, with one attraction in particular evolving into Journey into Imagination at Epcot. [citation needed]
"Residential Street" 1950s Was to have been located between Main Street and Tomorrowland (the present-day home of parade float storage and the Guest Flow Corridor). It and other lands in the same location (such as Edison Square and International Street) were all cancelled for unknown reasons. In Residential Street's case, signage announcing a 1958 opening actually went up. [citation needed]

Epcot World Showcase, Florida

Name Description Reference
Costa Rica Pavilion A Costa Rican-themed pavilion featuring a large greenhouse with a rainforest walkthrough. "The Neverland Files: Epcot".

"A Visit to EPCOT Center 1979".

Israel Pavilion Advertised on billboards when EPCOT opened, this would have recreated ancient Jerusalem with a courtyard stage and open-air restaurant. It remained unbuilt because of budget problems and security issues regarding the state of Israel, namely fears that the pavilion would turn EPCOT into a major target for terrorists. "Jerusalem Post on Israel at Epcot".

Spain Pavilion Also advertised on billboards circa 1986, this pavilion would have featured a boat ride similar to Mexico, with a design blending elements of Barcelona and Madrid. Also planned were a film on Spain's history and a restaurant. "Jim Hill Media: Monday Mouse Watch".

Soviet Union Pavilion During the projected "Phase II" expansion of EPCOT, a Russia-themed Pavilion was planned. It would have been based on the Moscow Kremlin, and dominated by a replica of St. Basil's Cathedral. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the concept was scrapped. "Why For did Phase II of Epcot's World Showcase never get built?".

Switzerland Pavilion Planned primarily as an excuse to bring a Matterhorn Bobsleds-style ride to Epcot. "Walt Dated World: Epcot: World Showcase".

United Arab Emirates Pavilion This pavilion would have paid tribute to the Middle East with a magic carpet ride attraction and a show focusing on how the Middle East paved the way for various ways of life and science. "Jim Hill: Unrealized Epcot".

Venezuela Pavilion This pavilion would have included a waterfall, a high-rise built into a cliff, and an aerial tram ride.
Equatorial Africa During the opening day telecast, Danny Kaye and Alex Haley looked at a model of the future Equatorial Africa pavilion. The pavilion would have included the Sound Safari walkthrough, two film attractions, and the Heartbeat of Africa show. Despite the model being built and both films having actually been filmed, the pavilion was scrapped because South Africa was the only nation willing to back it, and Disney did not want to become associated with Apartheid. The concept was eventually revived as the Africa section of Disney's Animal Kingdom. [citation needed]

Epcot Future World, Florida

Name Description Reference
Movie Pavilion A pavilion dedicated entirely to movies. The board found the idea so good, and with Michael Eisner wanting to compete with Universal Studios Orlando, the pavilion was expanded into a dedicated theme park, opening near Epcot in 1989 as Disney-MGM Studios. A movie area of the parking lot is the only reminder of the original plans. [citation needed]
Space Pavilion This pavilion would have included a Guest-operated jetpack attraction called Spacewalk, and interactive displays about space. The idea eventually evolved into Mission: SPACE. [citation needed]

Disney's Animal Kingdom, Florida

Name Description Reference
Beastly Kingdom A "myths and legends"-themed land planned for Disney's Animal Kingdom. It was replaced by Camp Minnie-Mickey due to budget cuts. Much of the land designated for use by Beastly Kingdom is now used by Pandora: The World of Avatar. "Disney Plans Wild Animal Kingdom in Florida", AP (1995-06-21). Retrieved on 25 October 2008. 

Hong Kong Disneyland

Name Description Reference
Frontierland A Frontierland that would be similar to the Disneyland Paris version. This area would have featured the Haunted Mansion, a river raft ride, and an It's Tough to Be a Bug! 3D show. This land was likely scrapped because the old west wouldn't appeal to Chinese audiences "Hong Kong Disneyland That Never Was".

Toon Town A much more advanced version than its sisters in the other Disney parks. This area would have featured a roller coaster, an animatronic show, character houses, and character meet-and-greets. It may have become the idea for Toon Studio at Walt Disney Studios Park. "Disney and More: Hong Kong Disneyland: Coaster to Rescue".

Disneyland Paris

Name Description Reference
Discovery Mountain A large showcase attraction featuring attractions, exhibits, and restaurants, including a Nautilis-themed restaurant, a clone of Epcot's Horizons, among other things. The complex was a victim of budget cuts, but came so close to fruition, that construction actually did begin. Eventually, only Space Mountain and a Nautilis walkthrough were built, with many remnants of Discovery Mountain left behind, mainly in the form of signage. Elements of Discovery Mountain were eventually worked into other parks. [citation needed]



Name Description Reference
Atlantis Expedition A re-theming of the Submarine Voyage in Tomorrowland at Disneyland, in which guests would have been able to use a mechanical arm that extended out into the water from their submarine window to grab at gold coins & gems lining the sea floor. The box-office failure of the 2001 animated film Atlantis: The Lost Empire caused this planned revamp to be scrapped. The lagoon languished as nothing more than scenery until 2005, when construction on the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage began, which opened in 2007. [citation needed]
Candy Mountain An addition to the Casey Jr. Train Ride in Fantasyland, it was supposed to be a mountain, that looked like it was made out of rock candy (and other various types of candy, such as licorice, lollipops, and candy canes), with a glossy, translucent appearance. The planned Rainbow Road To Oz attraction, was supposed to go underneath the mountain, and the ride would be inside it. It was cancelled due to Walt Disney being concerned about how they would be able to maintain and clean the mountain "because of all the smog" that came from around Anaheim, California. One rumor states that Imagineers and birds actually picked the model to pieces, and another states Walt axed it because of its "sickly appearance". [citation needed]
Geyser Mountain A The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror-style ride to be built in Frontierland. Guests riding in a huge drilling machine would be caught in a massive geyser and thrown into the air. "Geyser Mountain". The Neverland Files.

"Why For?". Jim Hill Media.

Herbie the Love Bug Ride An attraction conceived in 1976, to be placed in Fantasyland, it would take guests through scenes from the first two Herbie the Love Bug movies, The Love Bug and Herbie Rides Again, (in mini Herbies) such as Herbie driving up the Golden Gate Bridge, or the famous scene where Herbie skips across water. At the end of the ride, the mini Herbie ride vehicle would split in half (like in the movie). It was cancelled for unknown reasons. [citation needed]
Fireworks Factory An interactive shooter ride designed for Discovery Bay, housed inside a fireworks factory, where guests would shoot at skyrockets, pinwheels, and other fireworks. A much smaller version was placed in Mickey's Toontown, though this version is merely an interactive gag in the land and not a ride. "Discovery Bay". The Neverland Files.

The Enchanted Snow Palace A dark ride that was planned for Fantasyland at Disneyland. Marc Davis was instrumental in its design, and it was the final ride he designed. It was designed as a boat ride on a river of melting ice, past naturalistic scenes of Arctic wildlife, beneath a display of the Northern Lights, and into the realm of the Snow Queen, a fantastical land populated by frost fairies and snow giants. Although the board really liked the idea, guests were demanding more roller coasters, and nearby Valencia-based Magic Mountain had plenty; the board reluctantly rejected the ride in favor of Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Extensive concept art still exists for this attraction. Shaun Finnie (2006). The Disneylands That Never Were, page 72–73. Retrieved on 2012-12-20. 

Lightkeepers A nighttime pageant that was planned for "Tomorrowland 2055". The show would have been about an entire race of god-like alien creatures that created light. They were alleged to come from a far-off mythical galaxy, where light was the source of everything. Created as a possible Main Street Electrical Parade replacement, the idea eventually inspired the short-lived and infamous Light Magic nighttime parade. "Disneyland in a New Light". LA Times.

Indiana Jones and the Lost Expedition A huge complex designed to house the Indiana Jones Adventure as well as a mine cart roller coaster and part of the Jungle Cruise, with the Disneyland Railroad travelling through the middle. It was pared down to Indiana Jones Adventure due to budget cuts. "Indiana Jones and the Lost Expedition ... Found!". Retrieved on 2007-08-08.

Duck Bumps A bumper boat ride planned for Fantasyland, to be built against International Street alongside the lagoon. Strodder, Chris. The Disneyland Encyclopedia: The Unofficial, Unauthorized, and Unprecedented History of Every Land, Attraction, Restaurant, Shop, and Major Event in the Original Magic Kingdom. Santa Monica Press. ISBN 1595800689. 

The Museum of the Weird A planned attraction that featured many strange things, such as a chair that sat up and talked. It was cancelled because it was so strange and creepy, and it kept Walt Disney from being able to sleep one night. The planned attraction, and many of its designs were taken and incorporated into the popular attraction The Haunted Mansion, such as the clock that had only one time on it (being 13:00). [citation needed]
The Old Ferris Mill A ferris wheel ride next to Duck Bumps which would take guests twirling around on a windmill. The concept might have been based on the 1937 Silly Symphonies cartoon The Old Mill. [citation needed]
Dumbo's Circusland A sub-area of Fantasyland where Dumbo the Flying Elephant and the Casey Jr. Circus Train would have been relocated. The idea eventually inspired the Storybook Circus subarea of the Fantasyland expansion at the Magic Kingdom. One element of the sub-area, a Pinocchio-themed dark ride, was considered strong enough to hold up on its own, and was opened as Pinocchio's Daring Journey as part of New Fantasyland in 1983. "Dumbo Circus Land". The Neverland Files.

Circus Hot Air Balloons Would have bordered Discovery Bay and Dumbo's Circusland. Also known as the Western Balloon Ascent, it would have been similar to the Skyway.
Dumbo's Circus A nutty adventure underneath the big top with Dumbo leading the way.
Mickey's Madhouse A funhouse adventure featuring clowns and such.
The Great Movie Ride A clone was planned for Hollywood Pictures Backlot. [citation needed]
Dick Tracy's Crime-Stoppers A dark ride planned for Hollywoodland. [citation needed]
Toontown Trolley A motion simulator that was to be a tour of Toontown with Roger Rabbit. [citation needed]
Baby Herman's Runaway Baby Buggy A dark ride for Hollywoodland. [citation needed]
Rainbow Road to Oz A ride based on the classic Oz books for Fantasyland. [citation needed]
Space Voyage Because of the success of the Matterhorn Bobsleds, Walt Disney wanted to make another roller coaster with four separate tracks, but due to space limitations, the idea was scrapped, though the original concept appeared on several park maps in the late 1960s as a "coming soon" attraction. The concept eventually evolved into Space Mountain. [citation needed]

Disney California Adventure

Name Description Reference
Rock 'N' Roller Coaster starring No Doubt An indoor roller coaster ride featuring music from the Anaheim-based rock band No Doubt. The ride exists at Disney's Hollywood Studios, but with Aerosmith. [citation needed]
Grizzly Railroad A railroad train which would have taken passengers on scenic trip around Grizzly Peak. It was likely to be similar to the Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland. [citation needed]
Paradise Pier Water Flume A "Chute-the-Chutes"-style boat ride that would have ended with a splash into Paradise Bay. [citation needed]
Green Army Men Parachute Drop A Parachute drop attraction themed to the Green Army Men from the film "Toy Story", which would have replaced the former Maliboomer space-shot attraction. In the end, the Maliboomer was demolished and its space became a garden area; its space is now home to Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind. [citation needed]
The Walt Disney Story A film presentation & exhibit about Walt Disney coming to California which was to be housed inside the current Cathay Circle Theater building. The attraction was cancelled when it was decided that more film based attractions were not needed for the park (one of the major problems with DCA 1.0 being too many film attractions), and the space would better serve as a restaurant to increase revenues. [citation needed]
Monster Inc. Rollercoaster An indoor rollercoaster attraction themed to doors from the film "Monsters Inc.". The attraction would have occupied the locations of where Stage 17 & "Muppet*Vision 3D" currently stand. It was scrapped after budget cuts. [citation needed]
Toy Story The Musical A new production of the same stage show borrowed from the Disney Cruise Line. The show would have replaced "Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular" inside the Hyperion Theater. [citation needed]
Goofy's Superstar Limo A retheme of the ill-fated Superstar Limo that would have involved using over 100 static figures from Disney Stores across America.
Miss Piggy's Superstar Limo A rather bizarre yet clever idea, this concept would have seen Superstar Limo reopened as-is, but over the next several weeks, Muppet animatronics wearing hard hats would be installed throughout the show building, changing the attraction over to the new version while outright insulting the old version. Ultimately, Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! was built instead.

Walt Disney World

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Name Description Reference
Dragon Tower A dragon-themed suspended coaster planned for Beastly Kingdom. It would have featured the largest Audio-Animatronic, a fire-breathing dragon. Laid-off Imagineers took the idea to Universal, where it became Dueling Dragons.
Quest for the Unicorn A hedge maze planned for Beastly Kingdom.
Fantasia Gardens A boat ride designed for Beastly Kingdom featuring the mythical animals in Fantasia. The current Fantasia Gardens is a miniature golf course located near the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts.
Enhanced DINOSAUR DINOSAUR was originally planned to have Ankylosaurus-shaped vehicles that would have traveled through prehistoric swamps and jungles. Additional scenes would feature feasting Tyrannosaurs, volcanic eruptions, high speeds, deinonychus attacks, and more. [citation needed]
Tarzan Rainforest Roller Coaster A Tarzan-themed inverted coaster that would be informative about the rainforest and all plants and animals that inhabit it. [citation needed]
The Excavator A wooden runaway mine car roller coaster through an abandoned dinosaur dig, planned for Dinoland USA, but due to Budget cuts, it was replaced by Primeval Whirl.
Dinorama Meteor Dark Ride A dark ride regarded as a junior version of DINOSAUR, planned for Dinorama. Conceptually replaced by Primeval Whirl. [citation needed]
The Tree of Life Carousel Instead of The Tree of Life, this triple-decker Carousel would have been the park's iconic symbol. The first level would have featured aquatic animals gently gliding along a pool, the second level would have been a conventional carousel with multiple animals in addition to horses, and the third level would have been a Dumbo-style spinner with birds. [citation needed]

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Name Description Reference
Dick Tracy's Crime-Stoppers A ride based on the 1990 film Dick Tracy. The ride was scrapped after the movie's commercial failure.
Baby Herman's Runaway Baby Buggy A Fantasyland-style dark ride based on Baby Herman, a character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Toontown Trolley A madcap adventure that would have flight simulators surrounded by animated screens to take guests on a "hare-raising" trolley ride through a zany cartoon world with Roger Rabbit at the helm.
The Great Muppet Movie Ride A "misguided" tour through movie history, given Muppet-style. The ride could be part of a planned Disney's The Muppets themed area called Muppet Studios, along with Jim Henson's Muppet*Vision 3D.
The Chinese Theater's Great Disney Movie Villain Ride A 3D adventure where visitors would have been menaced by three-dimensional recreations of Disney's most famous fiends before the forces of good finally came to their rescue. The ride was planned for Disney-MGM Studios and would have replaced The Great Movie Ride at Walt Disney World.
Benny the Cab Ride Guests would go on an adventure with Benny the Cab from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This idea evolved into Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.
Matterhorn Bobsleds A rather bizarre version of the Matterhorn, the MGM Studios version would have been only half-completed, as if it were a large movie prop.


Name Description Reference
Simulated Bullet Train Ride A unique variation on Disney's CircleVision 360 show. Guests would have found themselves standing aboard a vibrating recreation of the passenger compartment of a Japanese bullet train. Looking out through the oversized faux windows in this passenger car, they would have been treated to a high-speed travelogue as some of Japan's most beautiful scenery whizzed by the windows. One version of the attraction involved an encounter with famed Japanese movie monster, Godzilla, which was likely scrapped as the Godzilla series was in a hiatus after Terror of Mechagodzilla bombed at the box office in 1975. The attraction was planned for the Japan Pavilion at Epcot.
Rhine River Cruise A cruise down Germany's most famous rivers, including the Rhine, the Tauber, the Ruhr, and the Isar. Detailed miniatures of famous landmarks would also be seen, including one of the Cologne Cathedral. The ride entrance and the building that would have housed it are still visible at the Germany pavilion.
Time Racers A high-tech thrill ride about fast-forwarding through history that was to replace Spaceship Earth.
Jr. Autopia The Disneyland attraction would be resurrected and added next to the new Test Track for a new Transportation pavilion. The concept emerged in response to Test Track's high rider height requirements. [citation needed]
Thames River Ride Designed as part of the UK pavilion, this full-scale water ride would visit key London landmarks. Concept art from 1986 shows the Tower of London, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. Kurtti, Jeff and Bruce Gordon: The Art of Walt Disney World Resort, p.20. Disney Editions, 2009.
WEDway PeopleMover When the Communicore (now Innoventions East and West) buildings were built, they were designed with a second level and very high ceilings. This was because a PeopleMover system was destined to be installed on the second level. In the end, though, management found World Showcase to be in more need of transportation, and added a pair of double-decker buses. [citation needed]
Meet the World A clone of the Tokyo Disneyland attraction was planned for the Japan Pavilion, and was so close to completion, the entire show building was constructed, until it was discovered that a miscalculation in construction caused the rotating mechanism to put too much stress on the support beams. Since this would require a complete rework, and construction of the park as a whole already being behind schedule (not to mention the show glossing over World War II, which raised fears in management that American and Japanese veterans of the war would raise a stink), it was decided to move ahead without the attraction, which ran at Tokyo Disneyland from 1983 to 2002. The show's English soundtrack can be found on YouTube. The building itself still stands, and is used for rehearsals and storage.

Magic Kingdom

Name Description Reference
Western River Expedition A Pirates of the Caribbean-style ride through the Wild West. This was first proposed for Walt Disney's Riverfront Square. The land proposed for the ride is now used by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The ride was scrapped after guests constantly inquired about the absence of Pirates. "Widen Your World – Thunder Mesa".

Nostromo The genesis of ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. Originally based on the film Alien and slated to star the film's titular creature, the idea was scrapped because the source-material, a rated-R horror film, was deemed by Michael Eisner, on advice from George Lucas, to be too frightening for the Magic Kingdom. There was an Alien scene in The Great Movie Ride. [citation needed]
Snow White and Aurora's Cottages Were Meet and Greets first planned, in the same style of Enchanted Tales with Belle, for New Fantasyland, ostensibly to compete with Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. When the Princess Fairytale Hall, was planned, the concepts for the cottages where scrapped, and incorporated into the attraction. "New Fantasy Land".

Matterhorn Bobsleds During construction of the Magic Kingdom, land between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland was set aside with the intention to build a clone of the Matterhorn Bobsleds. This version would have had the Walt Disney World Railroad pass through it, rather than the Skyway. The land earmarked for the mountain will now be used for the TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster.

Disneyland Paris

Name Description Reference
The Undersea Voyage of the Little Mermaid A Little Mermaid-themed dark ride, due to open on the hillside facing Pizzeria Bella Notte, so that it would fit the "Mediterranean" look of this part of Fantasyland. However, since then, Disney California Adventure and Magic Kingdom have built this ride. [citation needed]
Matterhorn Bobsleds An updated replica of the popular ride from Disneyland which would have been placed behind Fantasyland Station. A still existing tunnel was created below the station so that the ride could have been accessible from both the Toad Hall area and from Le Pays des Contes de Fées. [citation needed]
Indiana Jones Adventure Since 1995, the large "Jungle Exploration" space behind Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril has been reserved for an attraction of the size of Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye. It is unknown if it may become reality or whether the space is entirely for that attraction, with one report saying there was to be a "Jungle Expedition" jeep dark ride to compensate for the lack of a Jungle Cruise. [citation needed]
Splash Mountain Since Splash Mountain and Disneyland Paris were built at the same time, the ride was not part of the original design. However, Imagineers intended to have it built in the Cottonwood Creek area of Frontierland in the following years. They designed Frontierland Depot so that the station can be easily removed and relocated elsewhere. They decided against it due to cold weather in Paris and for budgetary reasons. [citation needed]
Geyser Mountain A free-fall ride envisioned for Frontierland, possibly located in the Cottonwood Creek area. Designed as a mining facility in the middle of a geyser field, it would have taken guests to subterranean caves filled with golden ore, until they reached the heart of an active geyser known as the Old Unfaithful. The adventure would have come to a climax with the geyser erupting. [citation needed]

Tokyo DisneySea

Name Description Reference
The Jungle Book Adventure Audio-Animatronics Show A Jungle Book-themed show that would have been situated next to the Indiana Jones attraction. [citation needed]
The Undersea Voyage of the Little Mermaid When it remained unbuilt at Disneyland Paris, Imagineers redesigned the attraction for Hong Kong and Tokyo DisneySea. A variant of it is currently operating Paradise Pier at Disney's California Adventure and in the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. A variant would be built in the "Mermaid Lagoon" section of Tokyo DisneySea. [citation needed]

The Boneyard The popular Animal Kingdom attraction would have been recreated in Adventureland. [citation needed]
Grizzly River Run-style river raft ride A version of the California Adventure river raft ride was originally planned as an opening day thrill. It is unknown if the design of the mountain would have changed. [citation needed]
