    Darn! I didn't see you could vote more than once. I voted for Timekeeper, since it is an imaginative attraction with more to it than simply a movie. But I also LOVE AMerican Journeys. I'd vote for that one, too.

      I'd love to see the 1967 "America the Beautiful" presentation again, especially because my great-uncle had a cameo in it. He's in the scene where a Disney movie lot is shown -- he was one of the lighting technicians ("gaffer"), standing off to one side, as the Circlevision cameras panned through. It was always fun to see him "larger than life" up on one of those screens.

        I voted! Go me! I have a vague memories of the movies but remember what it looked like inside.
        I did like the one from inside the Rocket Rods, if anyone remembers that one......The other one was the Paris one, I think its like the Timekeeper. Can anyone confirm this?
        Little and broken, but still good.

          Or just put them online, with special viewer that allows you to "rotate" your point of view to any degree you want. Even when you were there in person, obviously you could only look in one direction at once; if you wanted to see what was going on behind you, of course you would have to turn around. So there was no possible way for you to see the whole movie on all 9 screens, at one viewing. With some sort of viewing software, though, you could watch it as many times as you want from different angles.

            I vote both the Timekeeper and American Journeys, both of which I'm most familiar with.
            My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

            1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
            2. Pirates of the Caribbean
            3. Splash Mountain
            4. Mad Tea Party
            5. Peter Pan's Flight
            6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

                Bob, I could be wrong, but 360 Circlevision one screen at a time on an iPhone might not capture the original experience.

                Part of the mind-blowing fun was encountering more than could be taken in at one time, like when we glide past and look down on the Haunted Mansion's ballroom, or zoom through the tall, impressive rock work on Radiator Springs Racers.

                    I'd love to see America the Beautiful again - if it is the one with the sheepdog! lol. I recall seeing it again right before they tore out the theater. That was my favorite version.

                      I think Soarin' took over where circle vision left of, sort of.

                        No, that's just California. DCA never had any Circle-Vision shows.

                            I already voted so I can't, but would one person please vote for one of the Canada films?
                            Let's not hurt the feelings of our nice northern neighbors.

                            Just one person though. I probably only have about 30 to 45 years left & I don't want to spend any of my minutes seeing the 1982 "Oh Canada!" Again. (Was there a "!" after the title and, if so, was the marketeer being ironic?)

                            And remember, if you haven't voted you may vote for more than one film.

                              I voted America the beautiful since I remember that one most. I remember being so amazed that I could watch something in front of me and then turning around to watch it pass lol Too bad they can't incorporate circle vision technology with soarin technology

                                As much as I love Soarin', I think the way Circlevision did it was better. While Soarin' uses the ride vehicles to help give a feeling of motion, Circlevision use your mind to give the illusion of movement. So much so that railings were needed for balance. I'll always remember swearing that the room was actually moving during the hot air baloon scene.

                                  I think the Timekeeper attraction ought to come to DL because it was future specific and that it continues the "Time" honored tradition of "Time" traveling at Disneyland.
