Op Ed: Why The PeopleMover Is One Of The Best Disney World Attractions

in Disney, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Tomorrowland Transit Authority

Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, DINOSAUR,  and now, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance — The list of thrilling, exhilarating and amazing Walt Disney World attractions goes on and on. But which one is one of my all time favorites? Well, the answer may surprise you!

There are so many different Disney Parks attractions and it is so hard to rank them since each one is unique in its own way. However, up there on my favorites list right next to Haunted Mansion and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a Disney World attraction that is a bit more on the relaxation side — The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, located inside Magic Kingdom at Disney World.

What Makes The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover Stand Out

Well, this Walt Disney World attraction may not give guests the thrills they may be looking for. No, The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is not going to go 0mph to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. No, The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is not going to drop you 13 stories. However, The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is going to give you a chance to sit back, relax, give those feet a break from walking, and allow you to people watch with incredible views.

With almost always a little to no wait time, this Walt Disney World attraction allows Disney guests visiting the Magic Kingdom to board the highway in the sky to look out at Cinderella’s Castle, ride through Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, and ride past other Tomorrowland attractions such as the Tomorrowland Speedway and Carousel of Progress, as well as enjoy the cool breeze while riding past Disney World guests.

And for these reasons, it is why this Magic Kingdom attraction remains at the top of my all time favorite Walt Disney World attractions of all time. Relaxation, people watching, avoiding the Florida sun, giving my feet a break — Do I need to say more?
