    "Not an admirable Disney decade"? Heck, I think the whole thing was worth it if only for Indiana Jones. A lot of unfortunate stuff happened, but Disneyland has still been plenty admirable throughout.

      1. Light Magic Parade

      2. Making a parade out of every new Disney animated film to come out

      3. New Tomorrowland

      4. Replacing Skyway, Mission to Mars, Submarine Voyage, PeopleMover (for three years), Motor Boat Cruise, Mike Fink Keelboats with nothing.

      5. Making the Penny Arcade into a store

      6. Closing the Tahitan Terrace

      7. Painting Small World with bright pastel colors

      8. Replacing Swiss Family Treehouse with Tarzan's Treehouse

      9. Letting Chip n' Dale Treehouse deteriate into a former shadow of itself

      10. Discontinuing the Main Street Electrical Parade.

          Mistakes....

          1. Taking out the Peoplemover

          2. Removal of the Disneyland Hotel Lagoon

          3. Toontown

          4. Electrical Parade Glowing Away

          5. Rocket Jets an Elevator lift removed

          6. That Gold/Brown paint they spackled around Tomorrowland

          7. Country Bear Playhouse Removed (I know it was 2001, but close enough)

          8. Allowing the Carousel Theater to sit dormant for most of the decade, and creating innoventions as its new tenant.

          9. Light Magic

          10. Ditching plans for WestCot

          On the other hand... while the 90's may have been a lean decade, not all was negative. Here are the best brite spots in my opinion...

          1. Indiana Jones Adventure... one of the greatest attractions in Disney History

          2. Fantasmic is a timeless classic

          3. Addition of music to Space Mountain enhances the experience infinitely

          4. Fantasyland Theatre Shows were entertaining

          5. The 35th Celebration/Party Gras was amazing (Dream Machine)

          6. Festival of Fools was a great time, its a shame it was so short lived

          7. And I know this isn't a theme park issue, but the 90's were a Golden Age for Disney Animated Features. We got Beauty and the Beast, Alladin, Pocahontas, Hunchback, Toy Story, A Bugs Life, Mulan.

          While changes are never accepted by all, we did get some positives out of the 1990's... it wasn't an entirely lost decade. We did lose alot, be then again, there were som positive gains.

                  Can we also group the early 2000s into this period? I mean, Parade of the Stars...Mickey's Detective Agency... :yuck:

                    Light Magic gave us that awesome audio system that we have now on the Parade Route.

                      I agree.. The mistakes really started in the mid 90s with the removal of the Skyway.

                        You could say Pressler.

                        But that's like talking about a pimple on a boil, so nah.

                            The Subs were always breaking down, but now they are back with Finding Nemo!. It is pretty cool, but not worth the wait.

                              I agree 100% with you on #1 Light Magic was a disaster.

                              However, I will say that having a new parade for each animated film was a good thing because it meant that we got a new parade every few years instead of the current parade which hangs around for the next 8-10 years.
