      I agree. Put the Peoplemovers back into action.

        After outfitting the track to make it more high-speed-efficient, I would put the RocketRods back in business.

            Have it working again ...with improved structual support. Newer people mover cars.. But keep the people mover concept and track layout. Change the tron layout inside with either Incredibles or a futristic look of a city. maybe make the car actually move 360 degrees at some point in the show buidlings.. You know waht Ill take anything....jsut bring back the people mover. Use the rockets form the old space mountain.. hhaha jsut bring that ride back.. it looks horrible without anything going on up there on those tracks.. hehehe my .02 cents :o

              Definitely put the peoplemover back. But... I'd put in another station, so that it would take you from one side of Tomorrowland to the other.

                I would extend the track so it could take you to fantasyland...I miss the skyway though, but something should go in between the lands besides the train.

                  Bring back the Peoplemover. I would perfer that it come complete with the Tron tunnel, but as long it came back I wouldn't get too picky. Newer looking cars might be neccessary or perhaps a paint job on the old ones.

                    I never got to ride the peoplemover at Disneyland, but I did ride it in the Magic Kingdom park in Florida, and I thought that it was great. (As a plus I found out what the tracks at DL were for. ) It was both very relaxing and interesting, and the ride was actually pretty long compared to most. Everything that I have heard about the rocket rods has been pretty disasterous, so I deffinately think that they should bring back the peoplemover to Disneyland.

                      Definitely bring back the peoplemover, but make it smoother than before. That darn thing got so bumpy at some spots. It was great to have a ride that you could rest on, and still see all the activity in the park.

                        I would love to see either a new technology be developed for the track, or the peoplemover making a return.

                        However, I wonder how you would reach the platform. Would Disneyland have to have those escalators up to the peoplemover platform? I wonder how plausible it would be to have the peoplemover return.

                          Or how about a new peoplemover, designed after the old ones but with a modern twist, and have it go to DCA/Grand Californian hotel, and/or the Parking Garage?? Then have a stop at a 3rd? park

                            one day someone will do an analysis of the internet and it will be discovered that 3% of the internet is questions about the peoplemover

                              You have the same thoughts as I do. The monorail covered more areas after DCA was built, so let's expand the PM too!

                                I'm with everyone else-bring the PM back I loved it. Of course they'd have to do something to spruce it up some but I still think it's a great ride. Which is funny because if you think about it there really isn't anything too it!

                                  Wasn't there a post stating that the Rocket Rods shook the PM track too much, and the track now has structural damage? If that were the case, they'd have to totally demolish it first, and rebuild a new one.

                                  Not cash that Disney is likely to spend... but we can dream!

                                    I would love to see the track used for something... (can't they reinforce the track for a slow moving ride again??)(and paint the track to match the new TL color sceme... white pylons.. and gold trim... hehe)

                                      Well, regardless of whether the pylons have to be rebuilt, the track has to be redone, so why not upgrade to WDW's technology.

                                      Beyond that, yes, I think rerouting the track and creating a second station somewhere around the MBC dock would be the only way to add one without encroaching on Fantasyland. However, I would love to see a second station go somewhere around the Toontown Station or Roger Rabbit, so people can avoid the evil parade route the way you could with SkyWay.

                                        I have talked with a "technical person" (and I don't want to say any more about that ) who said the reinforced concrete Peoplemover pylons and beamways have stress cracks all over the place from the beating it got from the retrofitted Rocket Rods cars.

                                        But from what I can tell, the concrete damage wasn't too bad - we have bridges and freeways here in Earthquake Country that look worse and are still in daily service. The immediate reason for closing the Rocket Rods was the steel pipe guide rail in the middle that the front of the RR cars rode on (and that steered the rear axle also) was cracking in many places, and they did not want a RR car to, well, um, err, let's say "Miss a turn" in mid run....

                                        I hope they've learned, and next time they get the urge to put in a ride "On the Cheap" they'll go lie down till the feeling passes - then go back to square one and build a structure that will actually handle the stresses.
