Walt Disney World Throwbacks: Chef Remy and More!

Walt Disney World Throwbacks: Chef Remy and More!

Let’s take a look at some Walt Disney World throwbacks. These are things I miss at Walt Disney World. Some, like Wishes, were removed recently.

My Walt Disney World Throwbacks are…

Chef Remy at Les Chefs de France

An adorable dinner guest, Chef Remy was at his best while visiting tables at Les Chefs de France in Epcot. This was one of my favorite dining experiences, however it ended in October of 2013.

Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade

The Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade in Disney’s Hollywood Studios debuted in October 2001. My son’s first visit to WDW was January 2002, thus he grew up watching these floats go by.

Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade featured a Toy Story Float.

From our seats on the steps of the now-defunct Sounds Dangerous, he had fun waving to the characters. In fact, the variety of characters and fun motor vehicles made this afternoon entertainment a highlight of our Disney World visits.

Mickey and Minnie were stars of the Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade.

Hi Mickey and Minnie!

R2-D2 rolled along the parade route! Unfortunately, this parade’s last run was in March 2008.

Mickey’s and Minnie’s Country Houses in Toontown Fair

While this was a small land in the Magic Kingdom, Toontown Fair offered kids and kids-at-heart the chance to tour the homes of Mickey and Minnie. These structures were removed to make way for an updated Fantasyland.

My son toured these houses with wide eyes throughout his younger years. He was fascinated with their homes and was always excited to see where the beloved mice lived. I miss the simplicity of these attractions. While simple, they were extraordinarily magical for children and their parents.

Kids flocked to Minnie’s oven to watch the cake that was baking inside.

While it’s fun to embrace the new happenings at Walt Disney World, every now and then it’s nice to pay homage to the extinct attractions that were special to families.

One of our favorite Walt Disney World Throwbacks is Chef Remy.
