  • [Rumor] New PeopleMover Station/Astro-Orbitor Tower...Old Tower Comes Tum Tum Tumblin' Down!

    Disneyland

    A new ride to replace the PeopleMover and Rocket Rods has been being bandied about for some time. According to a current rumor, the wait is almost over. Following the completion of StarTours 2.0 (that begins in 2010), the old Rocket Jet Tower will be torn down (hopefully disentigrated) ..and a new one erected.

    The new tower would provide housing for a loading/unloading station dock for a next-generation PeopleMover, as well as an elevator and base unit that would allow the Astro Orbitor to be mounted toward the top. The long-anticipated PM and sky high Astro Orbitor should be completed and open sometime between 2011 and 2012.

    I take everything coming from Screamscape with a grain of salt the size of the granite ball in the center of Cosmic Waves.

      Um, excuse me- but where the heck does it say anything about that, on Screamscape? I don't see it...

        Great! I need some salt for my popcorn. I saved a bag for you, 2DieFR. The rumor is supported by Al. So get yourself a "croissant slathered in preserves" and read what he has to say on the subject -

        MiceAge.com - A different look at Disney...And yes, once DCA proves itself and Tony Baxter gets the green-light for his big budget retheme of Tomorrowland, the Astro Orbiter will return to its rightful place atop the PeopleMover station. But the paint job and mechanical refurbishment is still needed in the meantime."

        First off, Screamscape has a pretty good track record of credible information. In line with Al's thoughts above, Lance Hart's rumor report of a new pm/astro orbitor tower being built following the opening of StarTours 2.0 seems all the more likely.

          So in actuality, this post is nothing we don't already know?

            After clicking on the link provided in my initial thread post, you will need to scroll quite a ways down to the second to last section, which is titled, 2011/2012 - PeopleMover v# / Tomorrowland 2010. If you scroll to "Matterhorn w/ New Cars", you have gone too far.

              Sounds awesome.
              I've only been a member for a few months now so i havent really been in the loop for too long. It seems like they are making a lot of really good strides. Is this normal or are they getting better?

                Actually brenden, Al didn't mention the rumor that the new tower would house a new PeopleMover station - and that the next-generation PM would be a part of the plans. Nor did Al mention the 2011-2012 projected completion of the tower, the PM staton, the PeopleMover itself ..and the placing of the Astro Orbitor atop the tower specifically within a timeline.

                Anywho, several people have vigorously argued with me in various threads to the contrary of what Al has said. It beared repeating.

                  We are extremely fortunate Lukey, that the corporate suits in Glendale are making quality new attractions for the disneyland Resort priority one ..over all other resorts, stateside and abroad. These progressive strides we are witnessing represent unparalelled investment for Disneland Resort that hasn't existed since the days when Walt created the maiden park.

                        I very much hope this happens. It's something that I've been saying they should do for a while. I've always felt an entire new tower was in order considering that that would allow a bigger station for the new PM and a base for the AO to go where it belongs, and make everything meet current codes. I'm just still a little skeptical, but I do think it would be the smart thing to do, so maybe WDI will be able to convince TDA it's worth it. I think it would be smart if they just go ahead and take care of this before Cars Land opens and the whole resort gets really busy. They could really use the capacity of something on the PM tracks in 2012.

You know…the Mickey in us.

                          That is what i think that Disneyland is missing nowadays. Someone to actually take the innitiative and DO stuff with Disneyland. Walt would replace rides after 1 year or 2 just because he felt it fit. I dont beleive he would have allowed a lot of the stuff thats going in to do so if he still had a hand in the park, or even if someone nearly like him were in control.

                          I mean think about this, from 1955-1966, the first monorail came to the US, First steel rollercoaster, audio animitronics.. many things that he did were invented by the team in order to do it. I would really like to see some of that passion now.

                          Also, kind of off topic, but i wonder why it takes 4 years to do what they could do before in 4 months. How long did it take them to build something like the matterhorn? compared to what it would take now?

                            Remind me when this rumor is more concrete... I don't want to start getting excited too early.

                              I know, right? I'll be one sad puppy when 2012 rolls around and I don't see half of these rumors come true. I try to stay critical/skeptical until something official is said. Nevertheless, this would be amazing and is definitely needed to restore Tomorrowland to its former glory.
