This is a list of attractions at Disneyland California that are no longer operating.

The Top Ten

1 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (May 5, 2004 - January 6, 2017) The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (May 5, 2004 - January 6, 2017)

I'll always miss Tower of Terror. This was the first ever drop ride I rode.

This Was Fun, But Guardians Is Also Fun - JPK

This was one of the best Disney rides ever created, the perfect story to attract kids and adults alike, and even the perfect scare.

I can't believe they closed this down for some stupid Guardians ride, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout.

This shows us how greedy Disney is, and so are other companies, and that they make new ones just to get mindless "fans" to give Disney their money.

Deserved better. - Kyle21

2 PeopleMover (July 2, 1967 - August 21, 1995) PeopleMover (July 2, 1967 - August 21, 1995)

This was a ride to give us an idea of transportation in the future.

They closed it in 1995, and replaced it with Rocket Rods, but proved too dangerous, and since it required a slower speed to move through such sharp turns, especially for rockets, and then they broke down, and Disney closed that too.
At Disney World, they still have it, its's called the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. - Kyle21

3 Luigi's Flying Tires (June 15, 2012 - February 17, 2015)

This replaced Flying Saucers, this, like the former, was a trackless ride, meaning powered my magnets controlled by a computer system "telling them where to move".

They replaced it in 2015 with Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters. - Kyle21

4 Rocket to the Moon (July 22, 1955 - 1966)

This was a show that simulated a mission to the Moon, it was closed when man was about to take first steps to the Moon.
It got replaced with Mission to Mars, which gives us ideas and hope of when/if/how we'll go to Mars. - Kyle21

5 Mission to Mars (March 21, 1975 - November 2, 1992)

This show gives us an idea of us going to Mars someday in the future.
Yet they closed it in November 2, 1992, yet the Disney World version closed for The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, which was one of the best and the Scariest attraction in all of Disney, and that too got closed, and replaced with the worst attraction of all time: Stitch's Great Escape.
Nowadays, the ride to simulate a mission to Mars is Mission: SPACE in Epcot at Disney World, and it's so dangerous that they divided it into 2 versions, green and orange, yet it accurately simulates what it's like to go to space on a mission to Mars. - Kyle21

6 Rocket Rods (May 22, 1998 - September 25, 2000)

It replaced the beloved PeopleMover, but became too dangerous and closed down.
They should've kept the PeopleMover, but Disney refuses to. - Kyle21

7 Flying Saucers (August 6, 1991 - August 5, 1996)

This was perhaps the 1st trackless ride ever made, which got replaced with Luigi's Flying Tires, and then replaced with Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters. - Kyle21

8 Carousel of Progress (July 2, 1967 - September 9, 1973)

I Think They Should Bring This Back - JPK

A classic ride showing us the goods of tomorrow, used to be a part of the New York World's Fair, then that closed down, and this closed down too, in 1973.

At least the Disney World version is still there, and they better not remove it, or they're gonna pay. - Kyle21

9 America Sings (June 29, 1974 - April 10, 1988)

Such a big hit, entertaining everyone with their songs, shame they got removed, and got replaced with Innoventions, but that too got removed.

Disney just cares too much about money, because they just want more people giving them their money.

Have you ever read the Greedy Triangle, and the triangle felt desperate and said" if I had just one more side", obviously they're greedy. - Kyle21

10 Innoventions (July 3, 1988 - November 10, 1998)

Another classic, removed by Disney in the sake of cash $ - Kyle21

The Contenders

11 Goofy's Sky School (July 1, 2011 - August 20, 2017)
12 Soarin' Over California (February 8, 2001 - June 15, 2016)

Replaced with around the world

13 Soarin' Over California (February 8, 2001 - June 15, 2016)

T'was a fantastic ride, made me proud to be Californian.

14 Mulholland Madness (February 8, 2001 - October 12, 2010)

It was a wild mouse roller coaster that was about Mulholland Drive in L.A., named after William Mulholland.
It was closed for refurbishment in October 12, 2010 to be rethemed into Goofy's Sky School, which is about Goofy's flight training. - Gregory
