 Best Post of the Day 3-21-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 21st, 1975: Mission to Mars opened in Tomorrowland.

Mission to Mars opened less than eight years after the opening of Rocket to the Moon. Rocket to the Moon was an original 1955 opening year attraction sponsored by Trans World Airlines. It’s name changed in 1967 to “Flight to the Moon” as part of the new Tomorrowland.

The Moonliner in the 1955 model at Disneyland - The First 50 Magical Years.

From July 1969, through December 1972, six manned missions of NASA’s Apollo program landed on the Moon. The present had finally caught up with Tomorrowland. So in 1975 Disney decided flying to Mars seemed more futuristic and therefore fitting better within the Tomorrowland theme.

In the Mission to Mars attraction, Guests entered a viewing area known as Mission Control, which was modeled after a typical mission control center featuring seated Audio-Animatronic "technicians" whose backs were to the audience. Facing the audience was an Audio-Animatronic flight director named Mr. Johnson who hosted the show with film clips about space travel.  The lecture was interrupted once per show by an intruder alarm caused by a large bird crash-landing near the spacecraft launch pad. After the pre-show, guests boarded their spacecraft, a circular theater with stadium-like seating featuring circular flat screens on the ceiling and floor. There were also side screens that showed film clips or graphics.

To take a trip to Mars
 

According to yesterland.com, Mission to Mars closed in November 1992. But this time, the closing wasn’t to make way for a major update or brand new attraction. Except for a short period in 1996, when part of the building was used for the temporary Toy Story Funhouse, the former Mission to Mars was simply abandoned. It was part of a lonely little corner of Disneyland with several other closed attractions that weren’t replaced until years later, some, not replaced at all: America Sings (closed 1988), the Skyway to Fantasyland (closed 1994), and the PeopleMover (closed 1995).



Of course, you all know in 1998, the building that once housed Mission to Mars was reinvented into Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port restaurant. The Rocket that stands on top however isn’t the original. It’s about two thirds the height and “landed” near the entrance of the restaurant. It’s painted red and white like the original, except it’s Coca Cola themed, not TWA.

Do you remember Mission to Mars? What did you think of it?

Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

Thanks!! I don't think I ever rode on a Mission to Mars, nothing about it seemed familiar I will watch the lengthier vid later- looks very interesting. Thanks again for all your work that you put into these wonderful history posts of Disneyland! 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4976.1 #18 10:59AM

To be fair, I am a NorCal churro and was 16 years old on my first trip- for one lil day. Clearly, i am making up for lost timeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4976.1 #18 1:25PM
Awe! Thanks my sweet churro friend! πŸ’— I know you know it a labor of love for MW. I missed it as well. Making up for lost time too! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘― I didn't get my first  AP till I was 29. Our kids are so spoiled! πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 2:09PM
I loved the old Tomorrowland attractions... Mission to Mars & Adventure Through Inner Space. As a kid, they gave me something to think about, to dream about. Exploring space, exploring molecules. Really cool stuff. I've always loved to think and dream and lots of kids do.  I believe that kind of experience is missing from the newer Tomorrowland. - BRabbit  534.1 #344 12:01PM

I remember liking it. I remember sitting in the front holding onto the pole while the room was shaking (taking of to mars). And watching the screen that was in the center seeing earth getting smaller. - msparrow  139.3 #2785 3:25PM

The memories this brings.  As a kid the space program was getting bigger all the time.  I feel bad for my kids because I don't think they get to experience that like I did, since the cuts in the space program.   - potatohead25  601.5 #300 1:58PM
Where space mountain now sits used to be a very simple tomorrowland stage. Disneyland broadcast live the landing on the moon as Guests watched on from tomorrowland - MickeyLumboCM  816.5 #196 3:55PM
@Gabster1 t's true! There isn't much talk about space at all these days. πŸ˜” it's sad.  - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:09AM
mickeylumboCM thanks for adding that! I don't think I've ever read that! Awesome! - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:15AM

no? Maybe you weren't into tomorrowland much? - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:16AM
Thanks so much for taking the time to put together such an informative post. Also, one of your clips reminded me that if you search "extinct attractions" on YouTube you will find more great videos of old attractions... - CVDisneyland  385.6 #526 4:45PM
Thank YOU so much for letting me know you enjoy it! Also, awesome! I'll have to check that out on YouTube! I'm always looking for new videos! - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:18AM
I remember this!  I thought it was pretty fun!  I really liked the animatronic NASA people and I thought they were real people until I was like 12!  I also remember my friends giving me a hard time when I would want to go on this back in high school, cause they thought it was cheesy. I also really liked Adventure Thru Inner Space, and of course the PeopleMover and the Skyway! Thanks for another awesome blast into the past @Duchess_SMK!   - zenderella  408.9 #489 5:03PM
 Miss them 😞 - BeatleMike  567.9 #319 6:08PM

Hi Zendurella ::waves:: I think it's cool you wanted to go in HS even if your friends didn't. Science is COOL! YES! ATIS was another super interesting attraction. I wish Tomorrowland had more "science" in it now. Thanks for the support! ((hugs)) - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:21AM
Duchess_SMK, yes, I agree, Tomorrowland needs more science in it... well, it needs more in it period!!! I do like Innoventions and I think it has a bunch of cool interactive learning tools, and while I did like America Sings, I think Innoventions fits the area much better!  I really think they need to bring back a modernized PeopleMover!  I loved how that ride went through ATIS/Star Tours, Tron, Circlevision, Space Mountain (where you could actually see people riding it), and even through that store where you could see people shopping!  Such fun!  I look forward to your next Disney history lesson! See you in two weeks!!! *hugs* - zenderella  408.9 #489 11:46AM
Sorta also liked that the classics like Mission to Mars weren't tied to a movie. They were just good fun attractions ! - msdizmaui  634.6 #276 7:32PM
Thanks a interesting point msdizmaui ! I hadn't thought of that! Thanks for bringing that up! - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:22AM
I remember it well. As a kid, I thought it was pretty cool. As I grew up, that sort of faded, and by the last time I rode it, I was a bit embarrassed that my employer (McDonnell Douglas) sponsored it. Still, a good memory, and a great write up! - redsoxcarlos  1335.6 #108 9:07PM
It seems a lot of people felt like you did. ::giggles:: I think our imagination fades a little when we get older. Thanks so much! Means a lot to me that you enjoyed the read! - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:24AM
I remembered riding this as a kid thinking we were really going to Mars! I loved it! - pixiedreamer  143.3 #2709 9:23PM
That's so cool! Imagineers would love to hear that I'm sure! :) - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:25AM
Once again great post!!! Rocket to the Moon was my husbands favorite attraction. He thought he was really going to the moon!πŸš€πŸŒ™ The Peoplr Mover was my favorite!!! - Boundin  566.2 #320 9:24PM
Thanks sweetie! Wait...he wasn't? ::giggles:: I'm with you, bring back the people mover! :) - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:26AM
This is awesome ! I remember bits here and there !  - jmza4  259.7 #31532 9:36PM
Hope the videos helped you remember more. :) Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:26AM
I remember going on this quite a few times.  The most memorable part of it - the seats that inflated!   I miss Tomorrowland '67 very much - it was my favorite Land by far!  Tomorrowland as it is currently is my least favorite Land in the park. - Grindcore  500.0 #378 10:15PM
The inflating seats! I think you may have been the only one to mention those! :) Awe, I don't think you are alone in that thought. I wish there was more "science" in Tomorrowland! Thanks for your comment! :) - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:28AM
I always enjoyed the attraction. It may have been a little outdated, but it was part of the charm!  - ythdudette  1173.7 #127 10:17PM
outdated depending on the year you went. ;) But yes, very charming I agree. - Duchess_SMK  5843.3 #14 7:29AM
Honestly, when I was a small boy flight to the moon was very much in "the future" and years later it made sense to go to Mars next.  But that first flight to the moon in outer space was every bit as real to me as going under the ice caps of liquid space on the submarine Voyage or becoming the size of an atom in inner space. And Walt's tv shows about the future had this little boy's imagination captured. This is part of what I get to bring with me to work everyday.  - MickeyLumboCM  816.5 #196 8:26AM
I do remember this one but it's been a long time...feeling old! - MinnieMyLove  156.9 #2501 7:23AM

I think I'm too dumb to figure this game out! I have no idea what's going on. I throw for dogs and sometimes the miners fall over and sometimes they don't. Then it will randomly say hit the goat, which I do and nothing happens. I've tried playing for literally an hour hoping I would catch on and I'm not gettin it. Can someone far more intelligent then I am give me a hint as to what is supposed to be happeneing? πŸ˜ƒ - BellesLibrary  403.0 #499 9:39PM
I'm right there with you. I can't seem to figure out the game either. I do the exact same thing as you. Someone please explain the object of this game. I'm about to delete it.  - Kfeatherer  347.6 #618 6:26AM
I'm completely hopeless at this. I think I hit the goat once and still don't know how - montanapixies  43.4 #4672 12:42PM

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 March 2, 2015:

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

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), Taste Pilots Grill (opens 3/13), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (opens 3/3), World of Color (TBD). 

Annual Passholder Event- Celebrating 20 Years of Adventure!- Annual Passholders can enjoy extra magic hours on either Tuesday, March 3 or Wednesday, March 4 from 8pm-midnight in the lands of Adventureland, Frontierland and New Orleans Square, with surprises the entire night! Registration is now closed for the event. Check in for the event will start at 3pm at Ticket Booth 4 (near Guest Relations on the DCA side).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With the rainy weather, expect it to be quiet both Monday and maybe Tuesday.  With the AP events on Tuesday/Wednesday night, expect the parks to be a little busier than normal towards park closing.  The weather is supposed to warm up later this week, so expect it to be a little busier towards the end of the week and into the weekend. Expect CIs to be in the 50s-high 60s during the week, 70s-low 80s during the weekend.   - BaseballMickey_CM Mar 2, 2015 3:14PM
