Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan. 11th, 2002. Superstar Limo, a dark ride attraction running since the opening day @ DCA closes. This had the unfortunate honor of being the first thing to close from Day 1 DCA just 11 months after it premiered. It took another 4 years for a replacement to come, that being β€œMonsters, Inc.: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue!” in 2006. To watch a ride thru: http://is.gd/gaZmJY Do you remember this attraction? What did you you think of it?
That... Ride... Sucked... - Slotherini   1053.2 #142 1-11-13 5:30PM Like(7)  Reply

Ha! Bad is an understatement IMO πŸ˜‚ Hi sic! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 1-11-13 11:25AM
I know what you mean... It was the epitome of celebrity worship. Something I still don't understand. - BambooMike  133.4 #2821 1-11-13 11:25AM
Hi SMK! Thanks for this, that was a fun blast from the past! Now I just need Soap Opea Bistro and im complete! πŸ˜‚ ....As usual, I completely agree Mike! πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3823.9 #25 1-11-13 11:30AM

Interesting point, Mike. agreed. And how is THAT Disney related?? How did it EVER get the green light? Shoulda been nixxed from the first mention - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4085.6 #23 1-11-13 2:20PM
to be honest, how was anything in the original DCA disney related? - nicoleface  1746.9 #73 1-11-13 2:44PM
Yeah, I think it was mostly just geared towards the California theme... hard to have a Hollywood "land" without a Hollywood themed ride - KylaShea  629.1 #267 1-11-13 7:54PM
They were going for an EPCOT but only for California. Hollywood fell into that category. - cesium55  531.6 #332 1-11-13 8:34PM
I sent the link to my Mom and she sends me this text back, "O.M.G It was worse than I remember it!!!....." And goes on. Lol. Thanks for the laughs today! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Sweet_Irish_Cream   3823.9 #25 1-11-13 11:48AM Like(2)  Reply

dca 1.0 haha, prefer the monster inc but on the monster inc dvd/blu ray the monster attraction is different in disney japan u drive thru monstopolis with a flash light and look for monsters to appear kind like buzz lightyear trigger system ,in my opinion its better than superstarlimo not very disneyish.also the taxis in monsters are the same limo as memory of that locations past attraction. - pikarich   2862.4 #35 1-11-13 12:13PM Like  Reply

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I remember riding it once, and it was so cheesy and odd. I believe they also reused some of those animatronics towards monsters inc. ie drew Carey is the CDA agent with the flyer things.. - MEHlanie_Mouse   1114.4 #128 1-11-13 12:13PM Like  Reply

I remember it. It was funny, and kooky. Not, however, terribly Disney. It was out of place, and had a tenuous relationship to the rest of the park, at best... Funniest part was where they took your picture at the end. - ThatDoleWhipKimberly   391.4 #498 1-11-13 1:10PM Like  Reply
because of the look of shock and disbelief on the park goers faces? LOL - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 1-11-13 2:18PM

Agreed, this was awful, but don't forget that when DCA first opened, it was built on the idea that there was to be no "Disney" connection between the two parks. Originally, it was supposed to be WESTcot, like EPCOT, which also had no Disney feel to it until recently. The public hated the lack of Disney, and the revamp we now know and love began. - susieQzee   547.4 #320 1-11-13 9:06PM Like  Reply
Monsters is so much better. Only went on the prior ride once and that was enough. We go on Monsters almost every time we go to DCA. - swvballmom   4.5 #17562 1-11-13 11:09PM Like  Reply
