People Mover Appreciation Society

The People Mover is our favorite ride in Tomorrowland! We ride it at least twice each time we go to MK--once in daylight and once after dark. It's a great way to rest and check out the lines and crowds around TL. I'm so glad they've kept it at WDW and not taken it out like they did at Disneyland. I think the best part of the ride is going through Space Mountain in the dark, and my daughter likes the part where it goes around the corner and "speeds up"... she always holds up her hands like she's on a roller coaster and yells "whee!"

My dd has grown up on the People Mover:

Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow!

Here are some badges people have made that you can post in your siggie!

Oooh, can I join this society?

I'm a fan of the PeopleMover as well. It's so relaxing, and you get some beautiful views of MK. Plus it's always neat going inside SM and getting a different perspective on the ride.

The people mover is GREAT! I always use it as my "rest" ride. To plan the rest of the day, relax ect. ect.

Proud people mover fan right here.

Our family affectionately refers to this as the "wooo" ride because our kids threw up their hands and screamed "wooo" for the ride so much that they got some kids in another car next to us (teens, maybe) to start doing it with them. They remember this and want to ride it 1st next time we get down there! Their very favorite and most talked about "wooo" ride.

It's a great way to get a relaxing moment while still being able to see things all over the place. It is definitly a must-do for us!

I don't understand what the big deal with a tag is, you can post anything you want there yourself.

I love the PeopleMover - nice relaxing ride when you've been walking all day.

The best was when we went through when SM was shutdown and all the lights were on inside.

Love the people mover. Rode it SOOO many times every trip when I was pregnant or had little ones while others went on Space Mtn. Now, we have just enough time to do Buzz and the People Mover while the rest of the party does Space Mtn. We love it!!!

A must do every trip. When my son was 3 we rode the peoplemover while the other rode SM. He thought we were on SM because we traveled through it.

I also am a HUGE people mover fan! We ride it every single time we go in the MK. Sometimes more than once!

Here too! My son especially loves this ride. I think we rode it 4 times on our last trip. I'm still not a fan of the new narration though.
