If You Could Fly opened within Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World on the 6th June 1987, sponsored by Delta Airlines, and closed on 3rd January 1989.
The earlier If You Had Wings attraction sponsored by Eastern Airlines was temporarily refurbished when the sponsorship changed from Eastern to Delta, though to a large extent the refurbishment consisted of swapping the sponsor names over, and giving the attraction its new name. Overall it's a measure of how little was changed that the refurbishment programme only took 4 days to complete, before the ride reopened again.
The overall format of the attraction underwent very little change from the earlier Eastern version.
The refurbished version became If You Could Fly, but it had a short life compared to most Magic Kingdom attractions, closing again a little under 19 months later, replaced by the newer Delta Dreamflight attraction.
