100 thoughts on “100 Moments from Disney World & Disneyland – New Rides & Closures

  1. I don't know why but this video made me really emotional
    I love Disney with all my heart so thank you for giving me this <3
    Keep it up dude <333

  2. My favorite part of the decade has to be Cars Land in DCA! That land, in my opinion, is the best land Disney has ever opened! The attention to detail and the beauty of it is unbeatable!!

  3. On 1:01 I remembered captain eo that’s michael jackson fir my opinion would say. On 2:32–2:37 I remembered Snow White scary adventures and i heard that it got closed in 2012 and it made me 😞 😞 that it makes me wanna 😭 fir my opinion would say. On 7:24–7:37 now that’s 💯 percent true and don’t forget while you are at galaxy’s edge at Disney world you can actually find a tribute in a robe sh and it pays tribute to lights motor action and fir my opinion it’s awesome how Disney world actually did that fir my opinion would say. On 10:54 yes and I actually been on that ride right before when it was closing and one of my friends he was on the same exact ride which is Ellen’s energy adventure on the same exact closing day while they were taking pictures with a dinosuar and fir my opinion I really wanted to do that fir my opinion would say. On 14:00–15:00 👋 at least that it’s better than the Disney skyway bucket at Disneyland fir my opinion would say. On 15:33–15:38 I cannot wait for this ride and I’ve heard some great things about this attraction fir my opinion would say and fir my opinion is that the rise of the resistance is better than the smugglers run fir my opinion would say. My favorite moment would have to be Star Wars galaxy’s edge and fir my opinion it’s way better than pandora and also I met youtubbers along the way and I’m going to be back to galaxy’s edge for my birthday and fir my opinion it’s going to be in a galaxy in a far far away.

  4. I'm going to Disney for the first time in 5 years with some best friends for graduation! I'm so excited to see all the new attractions!

  5. I think the best part of this decade was definitely the addition of Guardians Of The Galaxy Mission Breakout, Best attraction for California Adventure to date!

  6. I remember the first time I had the awesome opportunity to go to Disney World… It was literally the best day ever and I couldn't wait to go back!! I know 2020 is going to be a great year! Also can't wait for 2021, TRON is going to blow people's minds!

  7. I know that there are already a lot of “you forgot about _____” comments, but if I’m throwing in my own personal favorite, it’s the 2011 Haunted Mansion queue overhaul with all of the interactive elements, additions to the lore, and signs of respect for the various Imagineers and other participants in the original project!!

  8. Illuminations ending was difficult. I've seen several family members brought to tears by that beautiful score and the wonderful show. The new interim show, Epcot Forever is severely lacking in both areas. I hope Harmonious will be more on par with Illuminations. If not, bring back Illuminations. It's a winner!

  9. I love ur vids so much
    Idk why I got emotional in this vid
    I just love Disney so much
    And I love your videos so much, keep it up tpm vids 💗💗💗👏🏼

  10. Luigi's flying tires were a 2nd try to revive the saucers in Tomorrowland which also failed. The air like an air hockey table was just too weak and slow.

  11. Although I'm not a huge fan of Toy Storyland, Hollywood Studios desperately needed more kid fireindly rides (and rides in general). The Incredibles section is also a disappointment where the whole area should be back to Pixar Place with many Pixar movies and teaching out computer animation.

  12. So much has happen, I remember when bug life land close here in CAL in Disneyland I was so sad and I also remember when Muppet 3D closed here to THANK YOU TPM 🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘💖😢

  13. Wait. Seriously. 2013 was uneventful? That's when MagicBands and My Disney Experience launched & started testing. It's not the most exciting thing, but it certainly changed how everyone experiences WDW.

  14. Just bought an annual Disneyland passport and I'm now binging your vids to find some cute stuff to check out this year! Thanks for the amazing content!

  15. Wow i dont know why but ur background music and intro gives me nostalgia of your channel even though i found out who you were in 2019!

  16. Can someone help me I don’t know how many days I should spend at Disney Hollywood studios I want to go on all the rides and see the fireworks and also see galaxys edge, so how long should I spend there?

  17. Why am I so emotional about the changes in the Disney Theme Parks? Also, I never noticed how long ago everything happened. <3
    #SavePush
    #SavePushTheTrashCan

  18. For me as an European the best moment was the purchase of Disneyland Paris' shares. It marks a new life for our beloved park, hoping for a better future of it!

  19. What do you guys love about Hollywood studios, my favorite is sunset Blvd because of the songs and the feeling of being in the 1950s (also the 2 rides)

  20. Wow, what a great video!!!

    The Reflections of Earth farewell was very emotional for me. I was there on Sept. 28th. for my last time viewing the show and cried like a baby… I thought it was because of what I had on the food and wine festival but I almost cried again now, sober, seeing that part of the video. lol
    Love your work TPM!!

  21. My fiance and I just got back from our Disney trip (we got to be there for Christmas and New Years!) and this made me cry. Thank you TPM! You guys never fail to make me smile with your videos! <3

  22. 9:52 I'm sorry, mission breakout is not the first marvel ride in a disney theme park
    the iron man experience opened in Hong Kong Disneyland in January 2017, making it the true first marvel attraction in any disney theme park

  23. ok i have to ask….ur daniel coz right? i watched his (ur?) yt channel a while ago and i always thought u were the same person but i’m just realized that i don’t think u ever actually said that? just wondering 😅 i love ur channel! (both of them?)
