Good morning! This day in Disney history, Sep 5th, 1966. Disneyland's Flying Saucers attraction (located in Tomorrowland) closes after just 5 years in operation.

Similar to Luigis Flying Tires today, The Flying Saucers propelled guests guests on high pressure air flow valves in high-tech bumper cars (saucers).

When the New Tomorrowland opened in 1967, the space previously occupied by the Flying Saucers became the Tomorrowland Stage. In 1986, this space became the Magic Eye Theater.

For a fun clip of this attraction: http://is.gd/HNVcIy

Also closing on this day, the "Tomorrowland Jets". previously know as the "Astro Jets". They reopened in August 1967 as the "Rocket Jets".

Who remembers these attractions?

I do I do. The Flying Saucers were cool. I remember these so well. they were my favorite attraction back then. I just found an old VHS tape with old DL 8mm movies on it of the parks with, you guessed it, yous truly on the Flying Saucers. Wish I knew how to share it with you. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #176 8:00AM
Oh wow!!! Do you think you could record it on your phone and upload to YouTube? I'd love love LOVE to see that!! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 8:19AM
I also remember them and would love to see your movie if YouTube-able - Tealtownfan  886.4 #175 9:11AM
I will try to do this with the wife's iPhone today. DM me with how to do it. Thanks Dutchess. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #176 10:06AM

Imagine that! I'm sure luigi wouldn't mind as long as it was an Italian cigar! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:38PM
Quality content indeed! Thanks SMK - connielu  686.5 #240 1:20PM
Ok watched it again!! Just caught the guy with the cigar!!! LMBO ROF!!! Wow how Disney has upped its standards!! πŸ˜‚ - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.7 #245 1:27PM
Good morning. I don't remember the flying saucers but do remember the jets because my nephew wanted to ride them but he was not tall enough and he cried. - WishIWereThere  258.8 #1154 8:01AM
::waves:: aww! It's always so sad when little ones are dissapointed over not making height requirements. - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 8:22AM
Thank you for sharing this fun info! Always look forward to it! - MrsSchnooks  2833.1 #37 8:09AM
:) that made me smile! Thank YOU for telling me so! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 8:37AM
WOW thats crazy! I feel like we will see a post like this in a few years about Luigi's! - PrinceTeaJack  923.2 #166 8:18AM
Did you watch the link?! You must! You will be surprised at the similarities! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 8:45AM
I'm not old enough to remember the Flying Saucers, but I remember the Astro Jets. I love anything fifties/sixties syfy. This was the atomic age when the United States was in a race to space with the Soviet Union. Anything space or rocket related was very popular. Cars and furniture began to resemble rocket ships, and many of the movies/TV shows/comic books of the day took us into space or brought aliens to earth. It was a no brainer for Disney to capitalize on this with their Tomorrowland attractions. - ScooterMike  1961.7 #64 8:19AM
You always add such interesting content ScooterMike! Thank you! Disney really is fabulous on keeping up with whats popular! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 8:52AM
Awesome info duchess! - nickb92  69.6 #3898 8:35AM

Good morning, I predicted a similar fate for Luigi's before it opened and wouldn't be surprised to see it gone in a few years. - MightyWhitey  1026.8 #150 8:36AM
Did you see the ball in the video MightyWhitey?! DL was in to something there - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 12:50PM
Very interestingm thanks for posting. I do hope Luigi's can survive longer then the Flying Saucers. - Linzee  896.6 #174 8:39AM
I doubt it will unless they bring back the balls! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 12:50PM
What I would trade to be able to go on older Disney Attractions. Thanks again for these history posts. - RickChavez  3276.1 #31 9:01AM
::fist bump:: - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 12:51PM
QHC! I liked the Astro Jets. Fun going up the stairs and looking out over Tomorrowland. Hoping that they can step up Luigi's so it does not become extinct like the Flying Saucers. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4472.8 #20 10:04AM
They need to bring back the BALLS!!! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 12:56PM
I loved working the rocket jets during the weekdays. It was so relaxing. I also remember the original Captain EO because that was my first attraction. Great post! - Bbnmcas  9.7 #9632 10:13AM
How fun! I bet that would have been a neat attraction to work just to see those little faces light up! Thank you for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 12:59PM
Flying saucers were my favorite when I was little. - kskating  610.0 #285 10:26AM
Awe! Have you been on Lugis flying tires yet? - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:00PM
Okay, I guess I am officially old! I do remember the flying saucers. And loved riding those Rocket Jets all the time! Wish they would bring those back. So much more fun getting to ride that elevator up to the top! - MeridaFan  3439.0 #28 10:52AM
No way! I'm sure you're like a fine wine....just getting better with time. ;) thanks for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:03PM
now those looked like fun! - OhanaPhoto  3277.5 #30 10:56AM
Right?! I so agree! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:08PM
My dad was just telling me about this ride! He worked there when this ride opened and he said the ride never worked quite right, one side of the saucer was always dragging. - erincredible  207.5 #1792 10:58AM
Interesting! I still would have loved to try it! Thanks for adding that! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:09PM
Thank you for todays cool lesson. - BeagleBoy12  167.3 #2313 11:01AM
Thanks for being cool! ::high five:: - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:09PM
The Rocket Jets were my mother's favorite- I remember we always waited to ride them no matter how long the line (and it moved slowly- remember that elevator to take you up?) The Rocket Jets always scared the bjeezus out of me because I always thought I was going to fall out! - MoonWillow  380.9 #525 11:07AM
"bjeezus" lol! They did look like they were REALLY high up there! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:24PM
I have a photo of my mom on it that I posted on retro day. The problem with this ride is it was always breaking down. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.2 #148 11:33AM
Which one suuz? Or did you mean both? - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:25PM
Oh sorry. She's on the Flying Saucer. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.2 #148 1:34PM
Ah I see! Now I remember that photo! Fun! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:39PM
I remember the Rocket Jets; riding up the elevator was so cool. The ride itself was pretty scary for a lil kid back then - Grindcore  499.4 #371 11:44AM
I bet! I'm sure the view at night from up there was magical though! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:26PM
Thank you SMK!! The flying saucers, Astro Jets and Rocket Jets were before my time and/or height. But they remind me of a time when Tomorrowland was looking ahead to our future. I hope the referb brings this back. - IMissDisney  1205.4 #118 11:52AM
You mean you don't like the satellite sculpture that's there now? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 1:36PM

You finally stumped me Duchess: I don't remember the Flying Saucers at all! And while I know I rode the rocket jets, I'm not sure if the were Astro or Tomorrowland Jets! Thanks again for a look at the past! - Gia  801.8 #194 10:48PM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

unForecast for week of December 22, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-12am (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday) 8am-11pm (Wednesday); DCA: 8am-11pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday), 8am-10pm (Wednesday).

Reminder to check out the new "Freeze the Night", apart of Frozen Fun in Hollywood Land every night. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are hard to predict, crowd wise, as it is sometimes busy and sometimes crowded. Then expect it to be busy the rest of the weekend. 

Merry Christmas!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 22, 2014 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  351.6 #595 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6731 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  114.1 #3182 5:08AM

I've never done a mousewait meet up... Where do I go... - Disneygrl35  2.1 #55972 12:50PM
If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3439.0 #28 2:09PM
Thanks so much for the info MeridaFan!!!😊😊 - Disneygrl35  2.1 #55972 2:19PM
