Good morning! This day in Disney history: August 21st, 1995: The People Mover closes in Tomorrowland.
Sponsored by Goodyear and operating since July 2nd, 1967, The People Mover had carried more then 50million guests! It could hold over 1,000 people at any one time. Up to three guests per car in one of the 62 four-car trains. It was a high-capacity attraction, up to 4,885 guests per hour, alleviating a lot of congestion in Tomorrowland.
The "Grand Circle Tour of Tomorrowland" started in the center of Tomorrowland, reached to the edges of Fantasyland, and spanned a good portion of the east side of the park. The Tour took you through the following rides: -Adventure Thru Inner Space / Star Tours -Star Trader -StarCade -Space Mountain -Carousel of Progress (today Innoventions) -SuperSpeed Tunnel / "The World of TRON" -CircleVision (the pre-show area, today Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters) Plus you went over the Submarine Lagoon, Autopia, and twisted around the Monorail tracks. The map below gives you a better of an idea of the route.
Luckily, for those folks that miss the attraction and would like to get a taste of it, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida still operates to this day!
