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  1052.8 #123 1-11-13 5:30PM Like(7)  Reply

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  3142.0 #26 1-11-13 2:20PM
to be honest, how was anything in the original DCA disney related? - nicoleface  1746.3 #63 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  609.7 #251 1-11-13 7:54PM
They were going for an EPCOT but only for California. Hollywood fell into that category. - cesium55  531.6 #299 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  3589.5 #22 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  1856.9 #60 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  373.6 #501 1-11-13 1:10PM Like  Reply
because of the look of shock and disbelief on the park goers faces? LOL - Duchess_SMK  5090.2 #13 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  527.4 #304 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 #16288 1-11-13 11:09PM Like  Reply
