The Old Mill

The Old Mill is a 1937 Silly Symphonies cartoon produced by Walt Disney, and released to theatres by RKO Radio Pictures on November 5, 1937.

The film depicts the natural community of animals populating an old abandoned windmill in the country, and how they deal with a violent thunderstorm that nearly destroys their habitat.

When Walt created the original Disneyland park, he was quoted as saying that it would "never be completed.

It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination in the world". As a Disney fan, we are used to attractions and places in Disney Parks constantly changing, being improved upon and being redesigned.

We have also experienced many beloved attractions close and disappear to Yesterland.

One of these attractions in Disneyland Paris is Les Pirouettes Du Vieuz Moulin (The Spinning Old Mill), situated near Les Pays des Contes de Fees. It opened a year after the park's birth, in 1993.

You can still see the remnant's of the attraction in the park today. It was a large big-wheel style ride, where guests could sit in large buckets, similar to those buckets that churn the water around on a mill.

It was devised as unworkable due to the time it would take to get through the queues, even on a quiet day.

It was eventually scaled back, and later closed in 2000. But for all us Disney Geeks, it is still possible to see it and to imagine what it might have been like to have a spin on the Old Mill!
