Way Back 20K

Another shot from 1985. This time, we are aboard the Skyway headed over the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea lagoon. 20K ran from October 14, 1971 to September 5, 1994. Currently, Pooh’s Playful Spot and a large grassy area reside on the lagoon area.

You can see from the two shots above, that a lot of land was cleared after 20K was removed. The top photo is a recent satellite image and the shot on the bottom is a circa 1999 aerial photo from:

  1. Nice pictures! Although my family made several visits to the Magic Kingdom during the 1980s, I only rode 20k once. I was very little (probably around 4) and the organ music combined with Captain Nemo’s foreboding voice scared the crap out of me, so we never rode it again.

    We made one last trip to the MK before the Eisner administration frakked things up, in 1992. I was in my early teens at that point, and I honestly don’t remember why we didn’t ride 20k. Perhaps the line was too long, or perhaps my teenage self thought the obviously fake sea creatures were lame. I’m really sorry I missed this one.

  2. Hi it’s Alison from the Walt Dated World website.  Thank you for including a link to my 20,000 Leagues page.  My site now has a new address of waltdatedworld.com.  If you could correct the link in your post to waltdatedworld.com/id40.htm I’d appreciate it.  Thanks!
