A little early for a throwback but I was inspired today by the vintage Mickey pics. Me holding up my cousin in front of Magic Journeys...don't remember this attraction?! Must've been about '89

Here is also a bit of Disneyland history you don't get to see very often at all and it might be hard to tell but if you look at this picture and see above to the left where the space mountain line starts today, you can see the last 4 letters as LACE, this was because that was the entrance to the quick serve burger joint called Space Place..it closed in the late 90s and you can still see the original seats that are where the overflow seating is outside for Pizza Port near the entrance to space....they also had seating upstairs which is why they have the ramp and you could sit in that middle area of the outside space queue on the second floor...when the magic eye theater was originally there it was the Tomorroland theater and was outdoor and the movie for magic journeys was outside at first before moving indoors....some of you might remember that the space mountain entrance was an escolater in front of theater that has been defunct since the late 90s early 200s - Dave  13498.0 #2 11:28PM
I miss the escalator. It was more like a angled moving sidewalk though - cesium55  531.8 #390 11:35PM

yea more like a moving sidewalk/convert belt...I use to love an run and jump on the exit one, you bounced... - Dave   13498.0 #2 10:51AM
Like the moving walkways on haunted...I remember that you knew the line was long when they stopped the walkway because the line went all the way down it. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 4:52PM

Nice! Magic journeys played prior to Captain Eo, mid 1984 through early 1986. - Drrmddl  263.7 #1227 8:41PM
I was just talking about this attraction at WDW how it was before Captain Eo and was also in the Imagination Pavilion at Epcot Was a creepy 3D film and the main song was done by the Sherman Bros - Dave  13498.0 #2 8:52PM
Here is the best full length video I have ever seen of Magic Journeys...its the same movie that played at Epcot as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYndIRRG9F0 - Dave  13498.0 #2 9:22PM
Thanks, Dave! You guys really do know everything - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 9:38PM
True Cali....and I dont have to google anything, thats the scary part - Dave   13498.0 #2 9:59PM
WHOA!! What the HECK!? That seemed so 1974, trippy/ creepy (especially the clowns)and who green lighted that? - misschurro  6362.2 #17 10:02PM
1984-1986 at Disneyland...it opened at Epcot first when the park opened in 1982 - Dave   13498.0 #2 10:42PM
now I have the song stuck in my head - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 10:03PM
kinda odd but its Marty Skylars fav song...pretty sure its because of his involvement with the opening of Epcot and this movie being in the Imagination pavilion - Dave   13498.0 #2 10:41PM
That's exactly what he told us when explaining his favorite part of Epcot - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 10:45PM
