  • Flying Saucers

    My friends and I were discussing old Disneyland memories the other day and I brought up the flying saucers that were in Tomorrowland sometime in the late 50's or early 60's. They didn't know anything about them. I remember riding them when I was quite young but can't remember where they were in Tomorrowland. Anyone know of an old map or guide online that will refresh my memory? Thanks for your help! Zesty

        The Flying Saucers is such a vibrant memory for me. I still can flash back on the disappointment the first time my brother and I ran over to them and discovered that they were closed forever!

          I have them on my earliest Disneyland map. They were great fun!

            The flying saucers were one of my favorite rides as a child. I was afraid of loud or fast rides so this one was just right for me! I also liked the smaller autopia that drove through the barn and of course Dumbo. My parents took us a couple times a year and it was always a happy day. Both of my parents recently passed away so we have spent hours lately remembering these good times.

              My father passed away in 1966, not long before Walt Disney. My dad loved Disneyland and moved my family to Anaheim just to be next to it. One of my few memories of him is riding the Flying Saucers together.

                What great memories we all have!
                Funny, if only Disneyland knew that it really did not need a lot of money tossed at a ride to make it a true memory. I am also reminded or the Tea Cups along this same vein.

                  I'm right there with ya on that one. Absolutely LOVED riding them...and, like you, was devistated to run over to them and find just an empty area.

                  (Darn it..now I wish they were back and I could ride them at least one more time.).

                  Edit: And like those above...my parents and Disneyland are so intertwined in my memories. I can't go to the Park and not be reminded of them everytime I turn around. (Mom, Dad, I miss you so much):love:

                      If you go into the present Tomorrowland and go the the right of the People Mover tower, approximately between the tower and the entrance to Space Mountain, there's s circle in the pavement with some pictures or artwork. As I recall, that circle is almost exactly where the Flying Saucers were . . more or less.

                            If I'm not mistaken they were placed where the tea cups are now. Tea cups use to be where the carousel is now. But yes, check out yesterland.com....great site

                            Wish I was able to ride the flying saucers. Before my time.

                              I am going to be looking for that, thanks for the heads up.
