Disney Classic: The PeopleMover

For a couple of my early childhood years, I was fortunate enough to live in Florida. This meant that, when friends and family came to visit from our home state of New York, they often wanted to go to Disney World. I’ve lost track of how old I was for my first visit, or exactly how many times I visited WDW in the brief spell that we lived there. What I do remember quite clearly, however, is riding the PeopleMover. It was, and still is, one of my favorites.

You know what’s funny? My twelve-year-old son loves the PeopleMover, too. It’s without a doubt one of his favorite rides (though he refuses to play favorites at WDW, saying he loves it all). On one of our trips, I think his PeopleMover record was twelve times in one day. He will literally go down the exit ramp, walk over to the entrance ramp, and immediately do it all over again. He doesn’t mind if he’s in a big group of us, or riding with one of his brothers, or riding solo; he just can’t get enough! I know how he feels.

This ten-minute elevated tram ride whisks you gently around Tomorrowland, even taking you inside the buildings for Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Space Mountain. If you’re hurrying around the Magic Kingdom on a hot day (as we usually are), it makes for a nice, relaxing break. I can almost picture myself there right now…

  1. Hi, I’ve never been to Disneyland, Florida, although I’d absolutely love to. I have been several times to Disneyland, Paris, though, and I think one of my happiest memories of all time is sitting at the front of the Rock’n’Roller coaster, just as it took off. Me and my children went on this ride time and time again. It was brilliant:)

      I have to admit, I’ve never been on the Florida version of that ride. Maybe I’ll get brave and try it one of these days! And I would absolutely love to visit Disneyland Paris someday. Perhaps after I win that 20 million in the lottery 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!
