Welcome to those of you joining us from Pursing the Magic and those of you just hopping aboard. We are the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.On this month's Blogorail blue loop, we're playing armchair Disney Parks planners and dreaming up our own ideas for Limited Time Magic. A lot of the popular Limited Time Magic items have featured old and rare favorites returning to the park. We're thinking along these lines, and our idea is "Yesterday's Tomorrowland".
Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom has seen numerous attractions come and go over the years. For our Limited Time Magic, we'd like to bring some of our favorites back. The first place we'd start is by giving Stitch his eviction notice and bringing back the attraction's previous tenant, Alien Encounter. In case you're unfamiliar with the attraction, check out the clip below. Take it away, Regis!
Skip ahead to 1:17 for Alien Encounter
Another Tomorrowland blast from the past we'd love to see return for nostalgia's sake during our Limited Time Magic "Yesterday's Tomorrowland" is "If You Had Wings". Occupying the space where Buzz Lightyear now lives, If You Had Wings originally opened in 1972 and was a thinly-disguised omnimover ad for Eastern Airlines. But hey, at least it didn't cost you a ticket, not even an A one!
Another extinct, beloved attraction sat where the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor now resides. "The Timekeeper" was a Circlevision 360 movie, the first of its kind to try to actually tell a story rather than just show the usual fly-by scenic shots. Audio animatronics were also utilized to help tell the story. The character of The Timekeeper was voiced by Robin Williams.
Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom has a rich history, with numerous version of the present and past attractions over the past 40+ years at the Magic Kingdom. If we could plan some Limited Time Magic we'd bring some blasts from the past, like the above attractions, back for one last hurrah in "Yesterday's Tomorrowland"!
