 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! 😘 - misschurro  8481.5 #13 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˜‚ - misschurro  8481.5 #13 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  6631.0 #22 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  846.4 #248 12:01PM
Yes.  I totally agree with you. - DisLUVney  640.6 #357 2:06PM

I remember going on that when I was younger  - msparrow  144.7 #2929 11:24AM
What did you think of it?πŸ˜ƒ - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  144.7 #2929 3:25PM
I remember this when I was young too. - TrampsLady  1641.8 #119 11:43AM
Did you like it?  - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 7:05AM
Yes as a child I thought it was great but Adventures Thru Inner Space was my fav. - TrampsLady  1641.8 #119 9:49AM
Thank you for the post & info! So cool to know about Disney History! A great flashback in time 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #23 11:50AM
Thank you for telling me you enjoy them! Means a lot to me! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  818.3 #260 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  1367.5 #146 3:55PM
@Gabster1 t's true! There isn't much talk about space at all these days. πŸ˜” it's sad.  - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 7:09AM
mickeylumboCM thanks for adding that! I don't think I've ever read that! Awesome! - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 7:15AM
Idk if I remember this at all. - joxua  106.1 #3639 3:25PM
I can't either and it's frustrating me - zbgirl00  67.3 #4448 3:53PM
no? Maybe you weren't into tomorrowland much? - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  460.4 #523 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  6631.0 #22 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 #601 5:03PM
 Miss them 😞 - BeatleMike  635.6 #360 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  6631.0 #22 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 #601 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  941.9 #225 7:32PM
Thanks a interesting point msdizmaui ! I hadn't thought of that! Thanks for bringing that up! - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  4503.6 #35 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  6631.0 #22 7:24AM
I remembered riding this as a kid thinking we were really going to Mars! I loved it! - pixiedreamer  231.5 #1693 9:23PM
That's so cool! Imagineers would love to hear that I'm sure! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  826.9 #252 9:24PM
Thanks sweetie! Wait...he wasn't? ::giggles:: I'm with you, bring back the people mover! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 7:26AM
This is awesome ! I remember bits here and there !  - jmza4  324.9 #31532 9:36PM
Hope the videos helped you remember more. :) Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  610.0 #379 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  6631.0 #22 7:28AM
I always enjoyed the attraction. It may have been a little outdated, but it was part of the charm!  - ythdudette  1559.5 #125 10:17PM
outdated depending on the year you went. ;) But yes, very charming I agree. - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 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  1367.5 #146 8:26AM
I do remember this one but it's been a long time...feeling old! - MinnieMyLove  247.0 #1486 7:23AM
d'awe! You're not old! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.0 #22 7:30AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  9281.6 #11 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10493.2 #9 9:55PM

This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14034 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  746.2 #303 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  746.2 #303 9:06AM
