      The only ones I honestly see sticking around forever are HM, POTC, Matterhorn, Small World, the other mountains, Jungle Cruise, and the ROA. Everything else I could either see changing, being changed, replaced, or just gone. Sad day.

        Astro Blasters, Pooh, Nemo, Autopia, Magic Eye Theatre, Whatever those rocket things that block the entrance to tomorrowland are called, and maybe a ride or two that hasnt been built yet.

          Now this is an interesting thread! I wonder if we can check our guesses 18 years from now! I'm including attractions and not just rides. My guesses are:

          Innoventions
          Astro Orbiter
          Autopia re-done
          Pixie Hollow
          Fantasyland Theater
          Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin
          Gadget's Go Coaster (re-themed?)
          Big Thunder Ranch

          Golden Zephyr
          Monsters Inc

            Most likely? Including major changes:

            Innoventions
            Autopia
            Subs
            Captain EO
            Pirate overlay on Tom Sawyer's Island
            Extensive, extremely major refurb on Indy
            Big Thunder Ranch/theater area
            Changes to Star Tours (more destinations)
            Upgrades to Buzz
            Major enhancements on Haunted Mansion to reflect WDW's (interactive Hitchhiking Ghosts and all)
            Longshot, I know but 18 years is a long time so, Haunted Mansion Holiday
            Enhancements to Jungle Cruise
            New exhibit prior to Mr. Lincoln
            Upgrades to Ghost Galaxy, or just Ghost Galaxy gone altogether
            One Fantasyland dark ride, not sure which but I could see this occurring... obviously not Peter Pan
            Fantasyland theater... which doesn't match up with what's going on now but again let me reiterate, 18 years is a very long time and I could see this being bulldozed by then.
            Not Winnie the Pooh, which has limited space and yeah I just don't see them touching it
            Upgrades to the Monorail (duh)

            My last guess, and this will seem out of left field and you may balk but: (brace yourself) Toontown. Yup. The entire land. This sounds crazy and I'll admit it's a pretty far reach, but if MK's Fantasyland expansion is truly successful they may just raze this (although far into the future) and build more FL out there. The land is a tad outdated and underused, and Mickey and Minnie's house can obviously be done without as MK is a huge example. Not to say I'm saying this because I don't like the land, which is not true. I'm just saying that if it came to it sometime in the next eighteen years, I couldn't be able to argue with the reasoning.

            As for DCA... hmm:
            A Bug's Land (all of it)
            Redwood Creek Challenge Trail
            Everything in the backside of Hollywood Land, including Muppets, Stage 17, Monsters Inc and Hollywood and Dine
            Obviously that park where the Maliboomer used to be
            Goofy's Sky School, along with Corn Dog Castle and Seaside Souvenirs
            Controversial, but Paradise Garden Grill/Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta as well
            A portion of Pacific Wharf maybe? Depends on CL expansion
            Soarin over California, with a significant replacement. I'd be SHOCKED if it still existed in its current incarnation in 2030.
            Upgrades on the following: TOT, Grizzly, Screamin, WOC (duh), maybe RSR?
            Animation exhibits almost all entirely switched out
            Aladdin
            Luigi's will get another ride pen

            And that's all I can think of.

              I would say toontown, maybe Mr. Toad, maybe Pinocchio, Astro ORbiter, EO, Innoventions, Subs, Autopia, Tarzan's Treehouse, Pooh, Canoes, THunder Ranch, and Starcade.

              ---------- Post added 07-17-2012 at 06:14 AM ----------

              Eighteen years ago until now, we've got rid of skyway, peoplemover, rocket jets, circlevision, submarine voyage, swiss family treehouse, EO, og Autopia, og star tours, rocket rods, country bears, jolly trolly, HISTA, electrical parade.

                  I honestly wish they would find a way to just revitalize ToonTown - more rides (not just for the little ones) and bring back the Jolly Trolley - it's such a bright and inviting and well themed land, but there's just not enough going on back there to draw people all the way to the back of the park. Kind of like Critter Country, but they have Splash to compensate. Roger Rabbit is good, but it's not like Splash - I think of it as more of a D-ticket than and E-ticket, FP notwithstanding. They have so many characters to draw from - how about a great Mickey ride? A dark ride focusing on the original characters? I would love that if it were well done and it would breathe new life into the area. I think at this point it's fun to walk through, ride Roger Rabbit, and head out. It needs more.

                  That said, I could see Innoventions, Autopia, Astroblasters, Captain EO. I could potentially see some kind of redesign of the Tarzan's Treehouse, but it would be a huge loss if Adventureland had no treehouse whatsoever, and I think it would take another successful "treehouse" themed movie to get a redesign there, so the chances are more slim. Even if the popularity of the Disney Tarzan movie has/does fade, the story is well known outside of Disneyana so that theme on the treehouse could well last a long time. But I couldn't imagine Adventureland without some sort of treehouse attraction.

                    Good question. Most of the rides at Disneylan of shown staying power. I have a feeling Inovations is on the endangered list. I have a feeling Captain EO will also be gone

                        as for the PFF....no way it will be there they are making a subland for it...why would it be gone by then?

                            Given the question of what 'rides' will be 'gone', I'm going to avoid what 'attractions' will be 'refurbished'.

                            I think it will be less than some people think, but perhaps more than others think. Tomorrowland is obviously the biggest candidate for change, as indicated by DL-Craze's awesome list. Even without recent announcements, I would have said Autopia and Submarines were a gimme, along with Astro Orbiter. Star Tours and Buzz would have to be considered possible culls within that time as well, although I wouldn't write either off - I think a lot of people are very quick to write Buzz off but it can handle numbers quickly and can be quite addictive for some.

                            I wouldn't be surprised to see two or three fantasyland rides move on, out of Casey Jr, Storybook Land, and perhaps Snow White & Pinocchio. I guess I have to concede Mr Toad has a chance of going, but its so unique and such a classic I hope it doesn't. Roger Rabbit is a possibility out of Toontown.

                            Adventureland, NOS, Frontierland and Critter Country I expect to see all current rides remain open.

                            In California Adventure - 18 years seems shorter, given the massive revamp it has just had. I don't tihnk there are any gimmes here. However, I would say that there are even more rides here whose life spans depend less on their own viability and more on Disney's ability to come up with something they like better. These include the kiddie rides at A Bugs Land (won't go unless they come up with a better idea to attract the very small ones), Monsters Inc, Luigi's Tires and many of the pier rides (King Triton's Carousel, Jellyfish, Zephyr, Swings, Wheel, Sky school).

                            The reality is that I can't see them quickly culling anything in DCA which can take people out of the crowd and into queues and which take up minimal space, because its hard for them to imagineer something as or more effective in the same small area footprints. Plus I expect that in DCA the first priority will continue to be to expand capacity, rather than replace rides. If it wasn't for this, the pier is the obvious first strike.

                            I do think some rides in DCA will be gone, its just hard to know which, it really depends what they come up to build and where in the park it fits well.

                            EDIT: For someone who focussed on the question, I sure missed the fact that DCA was really out of scope.

                                Perhaps. NBC is a cult favorite, and that popularity could be translated to HMH enduring for some years.
                                As for PFF, I could be wrong, but I view that as a more of a commercial ploy to sell more princess merchandise. I cannot see that lasting twenty or more years. With that said, I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised when I see it completed.

                                      Re: What rides do you think will be gone by Disneyland's 75th B-day?

                                      A very interesting topic, DL Craze. All the more interesting since I have little chance of staying above ground to see it.
                                      Before considering the attractions doomed to "Yesterland" we have to assume that we & Disney somehow miraculously evade the omnipresent financial collapse that's been promised, the Cesium drifting its way across the Pacific, & the myriad other tempests on the horizon.
                                      With that said, I would assume that any attraction based on video technology is doomed. 3D is slowly creeping its way into our homes. In 15 years you will be able to buy a hydraulic La-z-boy recliner with a wireless connection to whatever 3D or holographic video you've downloaded. You probably won't want to waste that $635 one day admission riding Star Tours when you have something better at home. Nemo is already on death watch although I see the lagoon staying in some manner. EO will be euthanized. Innoventions will be a mercy killing. "Tormorrowland" has always been the weak sister of all the lands, tainted with corporate sponsorship since its inception. Whatever attractions that go away will be there.

                                      I actually do not see the demise of many of the attractions that other MCs have noted. The monies spent on the park by TDA will be to add new things to increase ridership. Any space available will be used to shoehorn in a new attraction. I see things like the Shooting gallery & the underperforming Rancho del Zocalo being replaced by a new attraction.

                                      The largest problem that TDA has is congestion. You can let more people in the front gate if they are dispersed throughout the park. The outer edges of the park are underutilized. Therefore, new things will be added to the outskirts of the park & will not replace things in situ. Toontown will see some investment in order to support Roger Rabbit and not make the area a one stop visit. The long promised Frontierland expansion will come to fruition.
                                      If my application to the Haunted Mansion is accepted, perhaps I'll have a front row seat.
                                      Skiddley Whiffers is a cruel mistress; cold and unforgiving.

                                        Good question. If I had to take a guess, I would offer these suggestions:

                                        Astro Orbiter
                                        Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters
                                        Captain EO
                                        Innoventions
                                        Autopia
                                        Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
                                        Roger Rabbit's CarToon Spin
                                        Big Thunder Barbeque/Ranch/Jamboree
                                        Tarzan's Treehouse

                                        I can possibly see Fantasyland getting a redo in which it may lose some classic attractions. If so, my money would be on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Pinocchio's Daring Journey, Storybookland Canal Boats, the Casey Jr. Circus Train, and the Fantasyland Theater.
