Five Lost Disneyland Rides: Flying Saucers Anyone? (VIDEO)

Opened in 1955, Disneyland in Anaheim, California has delighted visitors for decades with its eight themed "lands" of rides, shows and attractions. It just isn't possible to forget a first spin on Dumbo, rocketing through darkness on Space Mountain or singing along with those musical pirates before Johnny Depp stole their fame. The skallywag! But with the park constantly updating through the years, some of those classic rides exist only as memories today.

We've rounded up a few of our favorite lost Disneyland rides, to remind us all of the good old days, before animatronic Mickey Mouse heads, and back when you had to walk "five miles through the snow to get to an amusement park!" With no shoes. Or socks.

Take a nostalgic look at the Skyway, Flying Saucers and more. Or for the young'uns out there, check out what you missed out on.
