I grew up going to Disneyland, so most of my memories are of Disneyland’s PeopleMover. As such, Disneyland PeopleMover posts will outnumber posts dedicated to Walt Disney World’s version.
But I don’t want you east coasters to feel totally left out, so I will indeed post content from your PeopleMover as well!
Plus, you can relish the fact that yours still exists, and that the LIM (Linear Induction Motor) system that you guys have is a much cooler (and much more “Tomorrowland”) propulsion system than the old Goodyear tires that moved Disneyland’s people.

The front side, the right side, the left side, and the back side of water…in case it helps sirshucky’s water simulation.
This is Schweitzer Falls; named after that famous explorer, Dr. Albert Falls.
Wendy can see into your soul.

From The Disney Parks Blog …
“I am glad to be at Disney World, the Magic Kingdom!”
This was the spirited welcome President Barack Obama delivered earlier today as he stood on Main Street, U.S.A. with the iconic Cinderella Castle glittering behind him.
Tourism was the topic of this official visit, and the President said the natural place to discuss efforts to make it easier for more international guests to visit the United States was Walt Disney World Resort.
“It’s rare that I get to do something that Sasha and Malia envy me for,” the President joked, referring to his young daughters. “Maybe they’ll actually ask me at dinner how my day went.”
While the President’s remarks were for an invited audience and necessitated closing a portion of Main Street, U.S.A., for a few hours, guests at the Magic Kingdom enjoyed a unique day of their own, with special entertainment throughout the park to keep things magical.
Instead of venturing down Main Street, U.S.A., to access the park, guests were ushered from the main entrance through a special backstage area that was lined with scores of colorful banners and parade floats and live musical entertainment. Once inside the park, guests could enjoy additional entertainment, character meet-and-greets, supplemental showings of the Frontierland Hoedown, and character dance parties at the Diamond Horseshoe Review and the Rockettower Plaza Stage.
A capacity crowd of guests who wanted to hear the President’s speech even watched a live broadcast of his remarks in the most appropriate of settings — The Hall of Presidents attraction in Liberty Square.
Back on Main Street, U.S.A., President Obama finished his remarks, then turned to look at the “Partners” statue in distance. The President gave a friendly wave to Walt and Mickey, then exited the stage to end this historic day at the Magic Kingdom.
I just can’t get over the fact that he went to the Magic Kingdom and didn’t bring his daughters.
Hey, look, there’s an alligator with sharp teeth within a few feet of Splash Mountain guests that can’t run because they are held in place by a lap bar.
I think I will hit it and make it angry.
