General: 400-Millionth Guest:
In August 1994

EPCOT>> Future World>> The Land Pavilion:
The initial 10-year contract of corporate sponsor Kraft expired in 1992, and sponsorship was picked-up by Nestlé, beginning a three year program to completely renovate the pavilion.

Studios>> Soundstage Restaurant:
A decor based on the movie Aladdin replaced the previous Beauty and the Beast theme in 1992.

Recreation>> Bonnet Creek Golf Club:
The newest Walt Disney World golf courses, opened in 1992, are to be found at the Bonnet Creek Golf Club, which is located near Fort Wilderness. The club has two courses, the Osprey Ridge and the Eagle Pines.

Magic Kingdom>> Main Street U.S.A.>> Walt Disney Story:
The Walt Disney Story attraction that occupied the first building to the right as you enter the town square from under the railroad depot, closed in October 1992. (This attraction reopened in 1996 as the 25th Anniversary Welcome Center).

Magic Kingdom>> Frontierland>> Splash Mountain:
Splash Mountain, the home of Brer Rabbit and his friends, opened in July, 1992. This attraction brings to life Disney's classic 1946 movie, Song of the South. The deceptively lazy ride through the inside of "Chickapin Hill" takes you on a colorful journey through the briar patch in your own hollowed-out log. But watch out! The ride ends in a thrilling 52-foot drop at 40 miles per hour down the outdoors 45-degree flume, the steepest in the world.

Magic Kingdom>> Frontierland>> Frontierland Train Station:
The original Frontierland Train Station, which was closed during the construction of Splash Mountain, reopened July 1992 with the opening of Splash Mountain. It is in a new location, between Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain.

Resorts>> Dixie Landings:
Walt Disney World's Dixie Landings Resort, which opened in February 2, 1992, is designed to provide additional mid-range accommodations in a Mississippi river plantation setting. The guestrooms are all located in the numerous southern manor-style buildings that comprise the resort. Dixie Landings is one of the EPCOT resorts, although it is the most distant from EPCOT, and is located just beyond the Port Orleans Resort on Bonnet Creek Parkway.

Studios>> Voyage of the Little Mermaid:
The Voyage of the Little Mermaid opened on January 7, 1992, replacing Here Come the Muppets. This multi-media presentation tells the story of the Little Mermaid in 15 minutes through the very effective use of black-light puppetry, animation, live action and various special effects.

Recreation>> Pleasure Island:
The Cage nightclub closes at Pleasure Island and reopens as 8-Trax dance club a short time later.
