I thought I'd share this picture I found looking through my dad's old family pictures. The Rocket Jets and the People Mover are there. This was in the 80s. Sorry some of it got cut off.

Back when the world made sense. - handdmom  238.7 #1485 10:34AM
Hey, don't be sorry. And you got three attractions in one pic. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 11:04AM
I love this! Used to be my favorite attraction with my dad. - Yoshi  257.6 #1278 10:37AM
Me too. I remember being so scared riding up in that elevator! - Normstar  97.6 #3631 10:48AM
My parents have albums full of old photos like this. I sure wish the people mover was still around! - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #540 10:40AM

It's there. I have another picture with the Sky way, submarines and the motor boat cruise in it. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 10:21AM
Wait, not the sky way isn't in that picture, but I have pictures of it from that trip. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 10:51AM
Most likely gone. The skyway was built early on in the parks history - bheuett  213.0 #1829 10:17AM
*sniffle* people mover - Lelundrial  656.3 #304 10:19AM

The rocket jets should be brought back! It looks nice to ride it on a higher level - otilegna  2669.6 #48 10:44AM

Thank you! I miss them! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 10:54AM
So are all the tracks still there for the people mover? Or is it just the outside? And if they're still there which attractions would we be riding through? I remember my favorite part was going through the super fast tunnel that went like .5 miles an hour - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 11:00AM
They are there, but badly damaged and aging. I think that some sections have been removed/altered where they went through other attractions (the star tours 2.0 for sure I know) - Sarafina  491.7 #432 11:02AM
awww great picture. I'm sad I missed the peoplemover and the rocket jets up high. I bet that really made you feel like you were flying through the air! - Sarafina  491.7 #432 11:01AM
Especially at night! - mattc  265.0 #1209 9:44PM
Seeing old DL photos is great. Thanks for sharing. - jlipstone  332.0 #735 11:01AM
That's the Tomorrow Land i remember ... - WaltSentMe  330.2 #748 11:10AM
The people mover was the best!! - MissAcroBRAT  246.7 #1398 11:16AM

The Tomorrowland of my childhood. *sigh - Minnique  631.0 #321 11:46AM

This is amazing!! - melissa_ficent  318.6 #809 2:00PM
Nice. I was never able to reach the height requirement for Rocket Jets before it was closed. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:08PM
Great pic this is how I remember it and me and my late father used to always ride the old rocket jets and I used to be terrified and I would sit with him and it would all be ok! I miss it like thisπŸ˜₯ - acejedi  22.2 #6961 2:17PM
Those were fun times. - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 2:18PM
I was always too scared to go all the way up to the Rocket Jets πŸ˜’ - Linzee  1188.1 #146 2:19PM
Same-same - misschurro  6361.3 #17 2:43PM
I miss the peoplemovers!! - snowwhite76  4.2 #22699 2:51PM
Okay-so people are always raving about the people mover-I never got the pleasure to experience it so can someone please describe where the ride went and what made it so fun. Thanks! - missyandpaul  285.8 #1004 3:11PM
Check out this YouTube Video: http://youtu.be/Oggal7RY2ks - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 5:56PM
Love this picture...it's how I remember it as a kid - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 3:29PM
I wasn't old enough to have complete memories of this, but I do remember seeing the people mover and sky way. I kinda wish I was able to ride them. Guess I'll never know what it was like :( - DarksidePooh  219.8 #1736 4:06PM
No "Global Warming" Matterhorn like what we have today - KAJi  550.8 #369 4:18PM
Wow! I'm so glad you all enjoyed the picture and I'll let my dad know.πŸ˜ƒ I knew MWers would appreciate seeing these things. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 5:27PM
It's stunning! Tell him thank you! And thank you for sharing! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 5:47PM
Ahh the memories - Dizkid  457.8 #474 5:48PM
I remember the rockets (not sure of the attraction's name unless it's astro orbiter), but I don't think I was ever brave enough to go on them. I loved the people movers because I could experience what space mountain was like before I went on it for the first time. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #285 5:53PM
Thanks for sharing this is a very cool shot. Brings back alot of memories of finally being able to run around the park with my friends. - sstarlight  324.7 #778 9:32PM
Brings back memories when they used to have company parties after hours & we would get on people mover to nap. We were young teenagers & felt so grown up being up late! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 9:35PM
Wow, never realized they were up this high. Love seeing old pics of the attractions. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 9:35PM
