  • Why did they demolish the Snow White's Scary Adventures Mural in Disneyland, Californ

    Why did they take out the Snow White's Scary Adventure's mural at the end of the ride in Disneyland, California in the early 1980s? As I can see from pictures and posts, it took a lot of work and effort to make that. How come they took it out so that when you exit the ride, you don't go through it? Any reasons?

    The simple answer to your question is in 1983, "New Fantasyland" was created. This was a huge remodel of the land that included a revamp of all of the attractions. Here is an excerpt from Davelandweb specifically about Snow White's Scary Adventures.

    During 1983, all of the Fantasyland dark rides were redesigned slightly to include the main characters of the films the attractions represented. Previous reports have claimed that Snow was not added until 1983, however, photographic evidence shown below from August 1972 proves differently. Tony Baxter, Sr. VP of Creative Development at Disney Imagineering, was so afraid of messing up that he requested all dark rides be 25% longer allowing that even if they weren’t better, they’d at least be longer. The ride vehicles are mine cars named after the Seven Dwarfs. The Dwarfs in the cottage scene are: Doc on mandolin, Grumpy on organ (the organ’s pipes feature wood-carved animals that shove nuts in their mouths), Happy on the bass, Bashful on the accordion, Sleepy on fiddle, and Dopey is on Sneezy’s shoulders. In the scene when the Witch offers the guests the poisoned apple, guests consistently stole the apple. When Fantasyland reopened in 1983, a hologram solved the problem.
    Unfortunately, the mural was one of the things that was changed during that update.
