    Yes, it will be replaced by a roller-coaster, but the actual spot of the ride will be used for a meet-and-greet… just, ya know, for clarity’s sake…

  2. One of my favorite memories from my one and only visit to WDW was my ride on the now defunct ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter (the equipment is now used for the Stitch’s Great Escape! ride.) The ride was so… non-Disney and actually quite scary. The feel of being restrained in your seat as an alien prowled around the dark room crunching your fellow riders was a blast.

      The ExtraTERRORSETRIAL was definitely scary.  I’m glad I saw it in the original form and I think I still have fingernail scars from my 8yo nephew on my hands from that one.

    Wow! The witch at the top of this post brought back the memory of how much this ride scared the bajeebus out of me when I was a little kid, c. 1973.

    When I lived a few miles away from Disneyland for a couple of years I went several times and got to know the place quite well, but the only two of the five Fantasyland dark rides (It’s A Small World isn’t particularly dark so I don’t count that) I’ve been on are the Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland ones (which are both great). Not sure why since I liked those ones a lot. The Snow White one will be my first stop next time I’m there.

    The article was interesting in that it explained that there were several different revisions of the ride, the last version (1994) considered to be the weakest. I get the sense that the real version of the ride died in 1994 (or perhaps even in the previous 1980s revision).
