 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  5399.1 #16 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  5399.1 #16 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  6040.9 #15 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  581.0 #327 12:01PM
Yes.  I totally agree with you. - DisLUVney  595.6 #319 2:06PM

I remember going on that when I was younger  - msparrow  143.3 #2743 11:24AM
What did you think of it?πŸ˜ƒ - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:05AM
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  143.3 #2743 3:25PM
I remember this when I was young too. - TrampsLady  1641.8 #94 11:43AM
Did you like it?  - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:05AM
Yes as a child I thought it was great but Adventures Thru Inner Space was my fav. - TrampsLady  1641.8 #94 9:49AM
Thank you for the post & info! So cool to know about Disney History! A great flashback in time 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6521.7 #13 11:50AM
Thank you for telling me you enjoy them! Means a lot to me! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:06AM
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  608.8 #310 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  1120.6 #147 3:55PM
@Gabster1 t's true! There isn't much talk about space at all these days. πŸ˜” it's sad.  - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:09AM
mickeylumboCM thanks for adding that! I don't think I've ever read that! Awesome! - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:15AM
Idk if I remember this at all. - joxua  90.0 #3623 3:25PM
I can't either and it's frustrating me - zbgirl00  67.3 #4065 3:53PM
no? Maybe you weren't into tomorrowland much? - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 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  387.2 #541 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  6040.9 #15 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 #505 5:03PM
 Miss them 😞 - BeatleMike  630.0 #294 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  6040.9 #15 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 #505 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  644.1 #288 7:32PM
Thanks a interesting point msdizmaui ! I hadn't thought of that! Thanks for bringing that up! - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 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  1767.0 #80 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  6040.9 #15 7:24AM
I remembered riding this as a kid thinking we were really going to Mars! I loved it! - pixiedreamer  149.8 #2628 9:23PM
That's so cool! Imagineers would love to hear that I'm sure! :) - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 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  610.4 #308 9:24PM
Thanks sweetie! Wait...he wasn't? ::giggles:: I'm with you, bring back the people mover! :) - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:26AM
This is awesome ! I remember bits here and there !  - jmza4  270.8 #31532 9:36PM
Hope the videos helped you remember more. :) Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 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  538.3 #358 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  6040.9 #15 7:28AM
I always enjoyed the attraction. It may have been a little outdated, but it was part of the charm!  - ythdudette  1297.4 #117 10:17PM
outdated depending on the year you went. ;) But yes, very charming I agree. - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 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  1120.6 #147 8:26AM
I do remember this one but it's been a long time...feeling old! - MinnieMyLove  189.6 #2041 7:23AM
d'awe! You're not old! :) - Duchess_SMK  6040.9 #15 7:30AM

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 the week of June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



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  408.8 #506 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7057 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  130.0 #2947 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  236.0 #1451 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign.
