 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!

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  548.1 #342 12:01PM

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  604.4 #304 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  1011.8 #168 3:55PM

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  386.6 #538 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  6005.1 #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 #500 5:03PM

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  6005.1 #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 #500 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  643.1 #283 7:32PM
Thanks a interesting point msdizmaui ! I hadn't thought of that! Thanks for bringing that up! - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #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  1658.9 #87 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  6005.1 #15 7:24AM
I remembered riding this as a kid thinking we were really going to Mars! I loved it! - pixiedreamer  149.8 #2620 9:23PM
That's so cool! Imagineers would love to hear that I'm sure! :) - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #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  607.2 #302 9:24PM
Thanks sweetie! Wait...he wasn't? ::giggles:: I'm with you, bring back the people mover! :) - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #15 7:26AM
This is awesome ! I remember bits here and there !  - jmza4  269.8 #31532 9:36PM
Hope the videos helped you remember more. :) Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #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  532.7 #356 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  6005.1 #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 #114 10:17PM
outdated depending on the year you went. ;) But yes, very charming I agree. - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #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  1011.8 #168 8:26AM
I do remember this one but it's been a long time...feeling old! - MinnieMyLove  178.3 #2190 7:23AM
d'awe! You're not old! :) - Duchess_SMK  6005.1 #15 7:30AM

Have a great week! - Admin May 19, 2015 5:54PM



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  398.4 #521 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6998 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  123.8 #3030 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  228.0 #1556 5:04PM

Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1523.9 #99 1:05PM
