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.

To take a ride:

On May 22nd, 1998, the attraction reopened as The Rocket Rods.

If you're interested in signing a petition online to bring back the people mover:

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!

Did YOU get to ride on the People Mover? Do you miss it? Any special memories you'd like to share with us?

Thanks as always for reading! Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

I miss this ride for one reason and I hope no one gets offended by this. But the people mover was where I got my first kids. I was just an 8th grader and so was she but I've remembered it forever. - GoffySnowBoardRider  182.1 #2124 9:30AM

So awesome!! When we went to WDW, my little monkey rode this many times! he even asked why it wasn't at DL and he was 4 at the time.  If a 4 year old knows this is an egregious error. . . - GoofyMom77  645.3 #273 9:12AM
πŸ˜‚ Such a smart little one! I haven't had the opportunity to visit WDW yet. This would definitely be my fist stop! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:05AM

Awe, hope you watch the videos, maybe it'll spark a memory? - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:14AM
When I was a little kid, this was my favorite attraction (after POTC).  I loved being up high over the park and getting to see all the attractions I wanted to visit.  I miss the People mover very much.  πŸ˜’ Thank you for posting this video though , I at least get to re-live the feeling through that!  - DisneyDavidEMT  1974.0 #67 9:21AM
It really was a neat way to see Tomorrowland! Thank YOU! Glad you enjoyed the videos!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 6:58AM
I really loved the people mover! It was always so pleasant to sit for a bit and take in the view from up there! It really covered the park and let you go into rides, there was just something really special about it. And everyone in the family from babies to the elderly rode it together. I will be signing the petition and taking the tour, thanks Duchess!!!! πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  839.9 #191 9:22AM
LOVED that the whole family could enjoy it! Yay for signing the petition! Not sure how active the efforts are, but I figured it was worth a shot! :)
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 6:59AM
I really enjoyed the people mover to me it was the the true future of transportation. Does anyone know when the sky tram was taken down? - invader  8.2 #11132 9:23AM
You know what, I'm not positive, but I THINK it's because of the naughty guests who insisted on throwing things from the carts? And didn't someone get hurt? Others may know more then I.
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:01AM
Yes, I used to ride this attraction and yes, I sooo miss it!!! 😭😭😭 I think I'm gonna go have a and a .........ok, now I feelπŸ˜„. Thanks for another ride down memory lane, Duchess! - ElectricMayhemMom  1003.5 #166 9:23AM

One of my first Disneyland memories was riding the PeopleMover with my parents and siblings during a loooong day at Disney and oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at all of the things we'd see. And eating Stikkos (chocolate wafers) on it. I'm bummed it's not around anymore but love the fact that there's still one in WDW! Thank you for posting this! Such a sweet nostalgic video evoking so many fond memories <3 - prtygpez  0.0 #123354 9:49AM
What a nice memory! Thanks for sharing that! "Stikkos" mmmm! Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed this! :)

Wow.I never knew it closed on my birthday. Bummer. I miss that ride.  - Disneymale5000  20.3 #6566 9:54AM
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Awe!!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:05AM
I have an inkling that Jimmy likes this ride. (I first met him and Plumie at the Opera House when he started talking about the peoplemover).  I don't remember it, even though I visited the park in 93 and 98.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2308.7 #52 9:56AM
you are so funny. Yes Jimmy loved the people mover and then the makeover short lived rocket rods, it is in his repetoire of repeated facts. I remember both well and I miss the people mover, not so much the rods because they were loud, broke down alot, and went fast when Β all I wanted was to rest and watch disney from up high.Β  - Plumiegirl  8507.0 #3 10:10AM
teehee, how sweet of you to remember! Did the video help spark any memories?
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:06AM
No, it didn't. I would have been in first grade when I visited, too small for a lot of those attractions. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2308.7 #52 7:46AM
I remember the People Mover as a kid! :) - ElSuperRaton  4469.1 #21 9:57AM
It was fun right?!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:06AM
I unfortunately never got to experience this attraction, so I don't really understand why so many people liked it. But, I did get to ride the Tomorrowland Transit Authority (TTA) at Magic Kingdom.
- BaseballMickey_CM  6787.3 #9 10:00AM
Lucky! I hope to ride it there sometime! Thanks for all your help this week! You've been awesome!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:07AM
i never got to ride this attraction, but did ride its next ride the rocket rods.on one of my disney sing along dvd i get to see alot of former attractions including this - pikarich  3621.3 #28 10:07AM
Same here. Never been on it and didn't even bother with long lines at Rocket Rods. But at least I get to see vintage tomorrowland in the sing along video! - BrerRabbit  354.5 #600 10:28AM
I need to get me one of these dvd's! Sounds like fun!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:07AM
I remember going on it a lot with my mom - TickledTink  370.3 #19 10:08AM
awe! Bet that was fun!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:08AM
I really liked this attraction as a mini, especially the Tron section.  I began to love this attraction when I became a CM and was assigned to Tomorrowland Attractions.  We used to guess how often we would have a breakdown and we had one of the best views in the park for the fireworks! - BombFrogFormerCM  818.3 #196 10:12AM
The Tron section was my favorite too! Oh WOW! I bet watching the fireworks from up there WAS awesome! LUCKY!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:09AM
Thank you for the post. I Remember this as a child. I wish they would bring it back!!  - PrincessKaylee  249.9 #1261 10:30AM
You're so welcome! I don't know if it's possible, but I did a include a link to a online petition up there if you're interested. :)
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:09AM
Boo!  I don't like this.  - Mrs.mouse  517.2 #363 11:03AM
?!what don't you like?!? Why are u booing?! - missariel33  1887.2 #73 11:14AM
It was a sad day in Disney history for sure!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:11AM
I did get to ride on the Peoplemover and I loved it!! I hope the rumors are true and they bring it back!! Ty Duchess! πŸ˜‰ - missariel33  1887.2 #73 11:14AM
rumors of star wars speeder ride to take over the track is the most recent one so far - pikarich  3621.3 #28 1:10PM
I hope they are true too! It always makes me sad to see the empty tracks just sitting there...
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:12AM
I loved the people movers and miss them. The rocket rods was a great concept but just didn't work on the track. They should have just kept people mover.  - warchanted  166.6 #2365 11:16AM
Agreed! The rocket rods were a disaster.
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:12AM
I remember the Tron section and the big creepy eyeball. Was that People Mover?It used to freak me out. - Sharkgrrl19  229.2 #1526 11:27AM
hmmm, I'm not sure, but maybe you're thinking of when it went through adventures thru Innerspace?
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:13AM
I really hope they bring the people mover back!  - JollyRoger5  3582.4 #29 11:35AM
Me too Roger!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:13AM
Always loved the People Mover!! Β I will take the tour with my family tonight, thanks so much for posting! Β And yes, I'm happy that at least it is still at WDW.  😊 - MinnieMousewife  810.1 #199 11:56AM
Oh good! What did they think?!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:14AM
This reflect is looked at with sadness  I miss the People Mover. I was at the All-Star game that was held at Anaheim in 1967. A trip to the new Tomorrowland made me feel that the People Mover was the future. Thanks   - Midasgold  605.2 #297 12:14PM
It was a sad day indeed....I miss it also!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:14AM
Where shall I begin??  People Mover was the best - awesome way to rest sore feets while circling Tomorrowland.  Loved the Tron tunnel improvement.  Loved going through Space Mountain.  Loved the whole thing.  Then there was . . . Rocket Rods.  Ugh.  2 hour wait on a good day because it broke down every 5 minutes.  Since it was conceived as a "test track" type of ride but the tracks couldn't handle it, it sped up and slowed over and over.  My husband still won't get over the 2 hours wasted in line.  Sigh, the only thing that will make it better is if a Star Wars ride uses those tracks.
- Dawnsharks  49.5 #4472 1:06PM
Agreed! The best 16 minutes to relax! ::giggles:: at your husband, sound like something my hubby would do.
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:15AM
I loved the People Mover. I miss it a lot. Wish they would bring it back and expand the track to California Adventure. Would be great ! :-) - timetraveler2442  338.9 #644 1:24PM
OOOH! Love that Idea! But goodness that would be expensive!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:16AM
Aw I loved the People Mover! It was my favorite when I was little, I always wanted to ride it!  - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #138 1:38PM
Me too! SO fun!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:15AM
Aaaw memories. Thanks for posting this - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  776.8 #212 2:28PM
My pleasure! Thanks for letting me know you liked it! :)

Waaaah! ::wipes tear:: we shall be sad together!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:17AM
It was always a nice way to get from Fantasy to Tomorrow and vice versa on crowded days - MelodyMouse  3734.6 #26 3:36PM
That was the skyway. The people mover only went around tomorrow land. - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1150.4 #131 9:24PM
HiddenMickeyFanatic is right, but regardless, the 16 minutes around tomorrowland was very nice for getting away from the crowds. :)
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:18AM
Great memories with my parents, grandparents and cousins.  I wish I could share it with my kids.  Everybody sign the petition maybe we can enjoy this again!
- Witchie77  332.9 #666 3:52PM
Not sure if it's even possible with the things I've heard about the problems with the track and evacuation limitations. BUT, hey, can't hurt to try right? :)
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:20AM
Why did ours close but WDW still has theirs in operation!?  - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1150.4 #131 9:20PM
You know what, I'm not sure. I've never been to WDW so I don't know much about that attraction. Perhaps someone else knows? Sorry, wish I had the answer for you! Great question!
- Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:21AM
Maybe they felt like the people mover wasnt being used therefore the rocket Rods!? - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1150.4 #131 10:32AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unForecast for week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!

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  372.4 #556 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6890 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  117.1 #3152 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  218.1 #1663 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  359.5 #586 6:07PM

What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  178.9 #2164 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.8 #98 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.8 #98 1:06PM
