YouTube 23. WEDWay PeopleMover - 1984


This vintage video of the WEDWay PeopleMover was taken by my dad on a family vacation back in 1984. It is series of short clips showing a nice overview of Tomorrowland from almost thirty years ago. You can hear a reference to "Mission to Mars" which was located in the current home of "Stitch's Great Escape." You will see the extinct "Skyway to Fantasyland" and even get a quick glimpse of the "Home of Future Living" in Space Mountain.  Although it is dark, you can also see the old rockets in the queue of Space Mountain. Finally, there are some great views of the "Star Jets" which became the "Astro Orbiter" in 1994. My favorite part of the video is the old narration by Jack Wagner, who was also known for being the original voice of the Walt Disney World Monorail.
