  • The Rocket Jets on top of the People Mover Station

    Why do so many people say that they can never move the Rocket Jets back to the top of the people Mover Station? Don't people realize there is an elevator that brought people up there, that could very easily accomidate several wheelchairs at a time?

      I think that those comments are wrongly assuming that the attraction mechanism actually changed locations. The current attraction mechanism is too heavy for the platform as it currently exists. The actual Rocket Jets mechanism is still there to this day, just naked and playing satellite.

      If the attraction does go back up top, I do hope they replace the mechanism like was originally planned. The Astro Orbitor does have a larger capacity than the Rocket Jets. Maybe they'll also spell the name right while they're at it.

        I've never heard they could not be put back up there. Why were they moved?

        I found this late 60's or mid 70's slide of the rocket jets and the people mover. Tomorrwland just looked better and more alive with the original layout.

          I know. I spelled People with a K, and because it is the title of the thread, I can't edit it. I am never going to hear the end of that. Let the smart remarks begin....

              Tomorrowland 98 was supposed to make Tomorrowland more like Discoveryland. Tony Baxter wanted to use a clone of the larger version of the attraction that was built for Disneyland Paris. The newer mechanism is heavier than the old one. When funds could not be secured to reinforce the platform it was decided to place the new mechanism out front instead of redesigning the existing one.

              I didn't even notice that. I was commenting on the attraction's current name, Astro Orbitor. Go take a peek in a dictionary and you will see that "Orbitor" ends in -er, not -or as Disney spells it. The attraction at the Magic Kingdom is spelled properly, but the difference is assumed to be a sort of faux French as the Disneyland attraction is a clone of Disneyland Paris' Orbitron, Machines Volantes.

                See, you were taking about something else, and I asumed it was all about me.. LOL.

                I never noticed that mispelling, pehaps because I can't even notice my own mispellings..

                  I am not one of those, "But Walt WANTED it like that, put it back" people, but in this case? Tomorrow lost all its charm when the rockets moved. Put it back! It's what Walt wanted!!!!!

                    I am one of those. But in this case, that is not the reason I want it moved back. I think it just looks odd where it is located, and it is a major conjestion problem.

                      I heard somewhere that if they were to put Astro Orbiter on the old Rocket Jets platform, wouldn't it be either too big or too heavy?

                        Then they need to use some of those Disney Bucks, and build a stronger platform. I mean, this company has built mountains no?????

                          I guess the redesigned ride would, but why can't they just put the regular rockets back? They were more fun when they were up high anyway.

                            The Rocket Jets are still up there. Today they are called the Observatron.

                              Yeah, but this company also has a budget, it's not like the Walt Disney Era where he would spare no expese on any attraction. With Eisner, Harris, and Pressler gone, Disneyland should hae a bigger budget to handle some of these things but right now their spending their load on the underwhelming California Adventure.
