Sep 5, 2012 7:54 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Good morning! This day in Disney history, Sep 5th, 1966. Disneyland's Flying Saucers attraction (located in Tomorrowland) closes after just 5 years in operation.

Similar to Luigis Flying Tires today, The Flying Saucers propelled guests guests on high pressure air flow valves in high-tech bumper cars (saucers).

When the New Tomorrowland opened in 1967, the space previously occupied by the Flying Saucers became the Tomorrowland Stage. In 1986, this space became the Magic Eye Theater.

For a fun clip of this attraction: http://is.gd/HNVcIy

Also closing on this day, the "Tomorrowland Jets". previously know as the "Astro Jets". They reopened in August 1967 as the "Rocket Jets".

Who remembers these attractions?

I do I do. The Flying Saucers were cool. I remember these so well. they were my favorite attraction back then. I just found an old VHS tape with old DL 8mm movies on it of the parks with, you guessed it, yous truly on the Flying Saucers. Wish I knew how to share it with you. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #211 8:00AM
Oh wow!!! Do you think you could record it on your phone and upload to YouTube? I'd love love LOVE to see that!! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 8:19AM
I also remember them and would love to see your movie if YouTube-able - Tealtownfan  1152.2 #162 9:11AM
I will try to do this with the wife's iPhone today. DM me with how to do it. Thanks Dutchess. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #211 10:06AM

Imagine that! I'm sure luigi wouldn't mind as long as it was an Italian cigar! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:38PM
Quality content indeed! Thanks SMK - connielu  686.5 #301 1:20PM
Ok watched it again!! Just caught the guy with the cigar!!! LMBO ROF!!! Wow how Disney has upped its standards!! πŸ˜‚ - CourtyAstroBlisters  807.7 #236 1:27PM
Good morning. I don't remember the flying saucers but do remember the jets because my nephew wanted to ride them but he was not tall enough and he cried. - WishIWereThere  303.3 #926 8:01AM
::waves:: aww! It's always so sad when little ones are dissapointed over not making height requirements. - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 8:22AM
Thank you for sharing this fun info! Always look forward to it! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3388.1 #45 8:09AM
:) that made me smile! Thank YOU for telling me so! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 8:37AM
WOW thats crazy! I feel like we will see a post like this in a few years about Luigi's! - PrinceTeaJack  944.8 #201 8:18AM
Did you watch the link?! You must! You will be surprised at the similarities! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 8:45AM
I'm not old enough to remember the Flying Saucers, but I remember the Astro Jets. I love anything fifties/sixties syfy. This was the atomic age when the United States was in a race to space with the Soviet Union. Anything space or rocket related was very popular. Cars and furniture began to resemble rocket ships, and many of the movies/TV shows/comic books of the day took us into space or brought aliens to earth. It was a no brainer for Disney to capitalize on this with their Tomorrowland attractions. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #89 8:19AM
You always add such interesting content ScooterMike! Thank you! Disney really is fabulous on keeping up with whats popular! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 8:52AM
Awesome info duchess! - nickb92  69.6 #4265 8:35AM

Good morning, I predicted a similar fate for Luigi's before it opened and wouldn't be surprised to see it gone in a few years. - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #176 8:36AM
Did you see the ball in the video MightyWhitey?! DL was in to something there - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 12:50PM
Very interestingm thanks for posting. I do hope Luigi's can survive longer then the Flying Saucers. - Linzee  1350.8 #138 8:39AM
I doubt it will unless they bring back the balls! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 12:50PM
What I would trade to be able to go on older Disney Attractions. Thanks again for these history posts. - RickChavez  3671.6 #43 9:01AM
::fist bump:: - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 12:51PM
QHC! I liked the Astro Jets. Fun going up the stairs and looking out over Tomorrowland. Hoping that they can step up Luigi's so it does not become extinct like the Flying Saucers. - misschurro...  7285.1 #14 10:04AM
They need to bring back the BALLS!!! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 12:56PM
I loved working the rocket jets during the weekdays. It was so relaxing. I also remember the original Captain EO because that was my first attraction. Great post! - Bbnmcas  9.7 #11579 10:13AM
How fun! I bet that would have been a neat attraction to work just to see those little faces light up! Thank you for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 12:59PM
Flying saucers were my favorite when I was little. - kskating  690.7 #299 10:26AM
Awe! Have you been on Lugis flying tires yet? - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:00PM
Okay, I guess I am officially old! I do remember the flying saucers. And loved riding those Rocket Jets all the time! Wish they would bring those back. So much more fun getting to ride that elevator up to the top! - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 10:52AM
No way! I'm sure you're like a fine wine....just getting better with time. ;) thanks for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:03PM
now those looked like fun! - OhanaPhoto  6402.1 #21 10:56AM
Right?! I so agree! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:08PM
My dad was just telling me about this ride! He worked there when this ride opened and he said the ride never worked quite right, one side of the saucer was always dragging. - YourGhostHostess  207.5 #1954 10:58AM
Interesting! I still would have loved to try it! Thanks for adding that! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:09PM
Thank you for todays cool lesson. - BeagleBoy12  167.3 #2503 11:01AM
Thanks for being cool! ::high five:: - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:09PM
The Rocket Jets were my mother's favorite- I remember we always waited to ride them no matter how long the line (and it moved slowly- remember that elevator to take you up?) The Rocket Jets always scared the bjeezus out of me because I always thought I was going to fall out! - MoonWillow  381.3 #609 11:07AM
"bjeezus" lol! They did look like they were REALLY high up there! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:24PM
I have a photo of my mom on it that I posted on retro day. The problem with this ride is it was always breaking down. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #186 11:33AM
Which one suuz? Or did you mean both? - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:25PM
Oh sorry. She's on the Flying Saucer. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #186 1:34PM
Ah I see! Now I remember that photo! Fun! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:39PM
I remember the Rocket Jets; riding up the elevator was so cool. The ride itself was pretty scary for a lil kid back then - Grindcore  568.8 #374 11:44AM
I bet! I'm sure the view at night from up there was magical though! - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:26PM
Thank you SMK!! The flying saucers, Astro Jets and Rocket Jets were before my time and/or height. But they remind me of a time when Tomorrowland was looking ahead to our future. I hope the referb brings this back. - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 11:52AM
You mean you don't like the satellite sculpture that's there now? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6512.8 #19 1:36PM
I don't remember them...but my mom sure does! She is so excited that Luigi's Flying Tires looks similar! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  916.3 #206 12:01PM

You finally stumped me Duchess: I don't remember the Flying Saucers at all! And while I know I rode the rocket jets, I'm not sure if the were Astro or Tomorrowland Jets! Thanks again for a look at the past! - Gia  802.0 #238 10:48PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105893 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6482.7 #20 8:10PM

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 month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM



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  643.2 #325 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7441 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #511 7:32AM
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  176.2 #2346 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1186 5:04PM
