Attractions I Love- The Peoplemover!

Depending on when you first visited the parks - or truly made your first impressions, you probably know this ride as something different.  To some, it's the TTA (Tomorrowland Transit Authority).  To me, it's the Peoplemover.  Others may refer to it as the "Blue Line" from a period int he 90's.  I've taught Noah to say "Wedway" - it's easier to say than Peoplemover, and being the original 1975 name "Wedway Peoplemover" it's all acceptable to me.


Whatever you may refer to it as, this attraction is a wonderfully slow moving ride throughout Tomorrowland.  The views you capture while riding are some of the best available

If you look closely, you'll see a small part of the original "Progress City" model - the city that led to the dream of EPCOT.
Excuse the blur!


This ride is great for sleeping or feeding/nursing babies - sit down and get comfortable!  I've heard the cast members have allowed people to stay on and ride again in such situations.  As the lines are rarely long (or lines at all), it's a nice place to sit for 10 minutes to take a tour.

Just beware - I do remember a trip from my college years where it was closed for maintenance.  When we asked why, the cast member reminded us that the ride worked on magnets and that the polarization had gone a little loopy - Beware of Bumper Peoplemovers!!!  Whoops!

  2. One of my absolute favorites. Seriously, it doesn't get much better than this attraction on a hot summer day when your feet are wailing! I do miss the old script, but I am glad they brought back Mr. Tom Morrow. :)

  5. First - your husband and son are very stylish! Approporiate choice of clothing! And second - TTA is a life saver. It also cures crying babies, crabby toddlers, and barking feet. Thank you Disney!
