Disneyland. Guests from all over the world have seen the strange set of abandoned tracks winding their way through Tomorrowland. Many young guests and first visitors wonder what they were for, and many others have fond memories of the attraction that once traveled through nearly every ride in tomorrowland.
For just shy of 30 years the Disneyland Peoplemover ferried guests through the attractions of tomorrow. Everything from the original TWA Flight to the Moon to the Carousel of Progress to the modern attractions like Space Mountain and Star Tours was connected to the iconic Goodyear-sponsored attraction.
As rumors swirl surrounding the upcoming Disney Star Wars movies, one thing is for sure; Tomorrowland is slated for big changes in the years ahead. This time we take a look at the history behind the attraction that has left the most telling clues of it’s existence and the most extensive set of Abandoned tracks of any Disneyland attraction before or sense.
Of course, no history can be exhaustive in the few minutes we have, so for more information on the attraction visit one of the links below.
