Sample text

Twenty-five years after opening, Alice in Wonderland was late in arriving once again—when the rest of Fantasyland temporarily shut down for a massive renovation in time for a May 25, 1983 unveiling, Alice closed on September 6, 1982, and didn’t reopen until April 14, 1984. Pre- and post-renovation, the attraction 45 All American College Band has always been unique when compared to other Fantasyland indoor dark rides in that it takes guests outside its building, in this case for a gentle glide across the tops of oversize plants (a glide that lowers guests from the second to the ground floor and into a surprise “un-birthday” celebration finale that was added in 1984).

When the latest “new Tomorrowland” was planned for Disneyland in the mid-’90s, designers basically re-created the Parisian and Floridian attractions, one of the few times a design emigrated from east to west instead of the reverse. Instead of the uncomplicated whitewith-trim Astro-Jets/Tomorrowland Jets/Rocket Jets that had orbited in Tomorrowland for four decades, the new Astro-Orbitor was a complex conglomeration of moving spheres and fanciful spaceships inspired, as Disneyland’s own publications noted, by the works of Leonardo da Vinci.

The redesigned central tower itself now looked like one of the imposing Saturn launchers seen regularly on TV thrusting astronauts into the Florida sky. Even more impressively, the whole attraction had been lifted three stories off the ground to stand atop the main PeopleMover platform. With the center rocket topping out at about 85 feet, guests now rode an elevator (styled like the gantry alongside a NASA rocket) to reach the loading area. The fun factor zoomed when pilots pushed their vehicles to maximum altitude because they were now soaring some 70 feet above Tomorrowland pavement.
