 Best Post of the Day 8-5-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 5th,1967: Adventure Thru Inner Space officially opens to the public in Tomorrowland. (after it's July 29th press and soft opening)

Adventure Thru Inner Space then occupied the space that was previously the 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Exhibit., before that, The Monsanto Hall of Chemistry. (Now Star Tours)

Sponsored by Monsanto Chemical Company, it was one of the few FREE attractions in the park. The first in park attraction to use the OminiMover ride system (Continuous loading, unloading and pivoting of vehicles with wraparound hoods). "Atomobiles", transport guests while Paul Frees narrates the journey. Guests are miniaturized through a microscope, and placed inside a lone snowflake/water molecule. Then they kept getting smaller and smaller down into the world of the Atom.

Attraction highlights:

Look at that Mickey Balloon! ::hearts with eyes emoji::

The Sherman Brothers wrote the song "Miracles from Molecules" which was featured on the attraction and played in the gift shop. To listen:

"Adventure Thru Inner Space remained popular with guests for nearly two decades. The experience that once was futuristic, however, became outdated as science and space travel advanced. So, on September 2, 1985, Adventure Thru Inner Space shrank its last guest to the size of a molecule, making way for a new, inter-galactic adventure". disneyparks.disney.go.com

Scary as a kid (didn't understand anything that was going on, but terrified about the shrinking) - evolved into a make-out ride as a teen.  Loved everything about it and was sad to see it go!  Thanks for the memories... - msdizmaui  644.2 #288 11:41PM

I loooooved this ride and miss it so much!! I loved the fact that it had Doombuggies and the Ghost Host narrating the whole ride because HM has always been my favorite so I felt like, in a sense, there were TWO Haunted Mansions at Disneyland, lol! I remember how freezing it was once you entered the room with all the spinning snowflakes...   man, I miss that ride!πŸ˜” - Nala  375.3 #563 1:17PM

Thank you so much! Always so kind! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:58AM
Thank you for posting this.  I did get to go on this as a little kid and I remember being mesmerized watching all the guests shrink down to size.  It kept me occupied trying to figure out how it was happening while I was in line.  The main thing I remember most is looking up on one of part of the ride to see a huge eyeball staring down at us.  Oh how I miss the old days of Tomorrowland :) - DisLUVney  595.7 #319 2:11PM
Thank YOU for reading and commenting! That eye was weird huh? πŸ˜‚  - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:59AM

Loved this ride sooo much! It was a big deal at the time and it was fun to pretend to shrink to atomic size. The effects were okay but the narration really made this ride fun!!! - PrincessCindy  120.8 #3106 4:59PM

It was quirky and was fun, wish attraction could be added without removing others such as this and America Sings - BombFrogFormerCM  877.1 #190 8:30AM
When I was little this ride scared me as I thought I was really shrinking. As I got older this was a really cool ride. I think it would be great in a science museum to help teach kids. Thanks for posting. I love all the facts.  - Bassplayerswife  359.3 #597 7:15PM
Sounds like it scared a lot lf kiddos! πŸ˜‚ I agree! So educational!Β  - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 7:05AM

Great history. My mothers very close friend Linda is the widow of Bert Brundage who helped create the Omnimover. She has so many great stories of Disneyalnd and Bert. She is in her 80's and will dance the pants off of any 30 year old I knowπŸ˜ƒ She is such a treasure to know! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1156.5 #137 11:51PM
😱 no way! Now that's amazing! How blessed you are to know her! Do you see her often? She should write a book! I'd buy it!  - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 7:11AM
Right!! So very cool to have that history! I don't see her but a couple times a year.. My mom is actually hanging out with her this weekend. They travel together.. My mom will be 65 tomorrow and she says she has a hard time keeping up with LindaπŸ˜‚ I will tell her you said that!! I tried to get her to join MW, but she doesn't get on social media much.  - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1156.5 #137 2:40PM
Love the posts about Tomorrowland. Always so much history. Seems to have had a high turnover rate with attractions. Love learning all about them.  - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1135.2 #143 12:56AM
Indeed! Have to keep up with "tomorrow" 😊 so glad you enjoyed the read! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 7:11AM

This is so great! I love Disney history. Thank you for the pics and videos!!!! - marisadel  12.1 #8957 8:07AM
When I was very small it terrified me. When I was a little older it was a great napping spot for overnight parties (Hospital Days, Electric Co. Days, we all had a friend who's parents worked for whatever the latest one was. Just a few dollars & very low crowds). Thanks Duchess! - ShariRenee  6203.3 #14 8:40AM

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  411.1 #501 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7059 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  130.2 #2946 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  236.7 #1445 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
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4389.9 #25 7:41PM

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.
