The Whole Truth… Debunking harmful car-related myths
Disneyland Classic Car: The Peoplemover
You might recognize these Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover ride cars from the aerial cruiser that gave visitors a bird’s eye view of the park from 1967 to 1995. Over the course of its nearly 30-year run, the ride transported over 100 million guests.
Disneyland Classic Car: The Skyway
From 1956 to 1994, the most exciting way to travel between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland had to be via the Skyway. This iconic ferrying ride transported guests in bucket ride cars suspended high above the rest of the park. You could even get a glimpse of the Matterhorn attraction and Abominable Snowman while taking the aerial tour.
Disneyland Classic Car: Space Mountain Pod
If you’ve been to California’s Disneyland amusement park, you’ve probably ridden in this car. Space Mountain has long been one of the location’s main attractions. This futuristic, indoor thrill ride opened in 1977, patterned after the same attraction that opened in Walt Disney World Florida. These uniquely-designed Space Mountain ride vehicles possess an outer space rocket-like appearance recognizable to any fan.
