Hi I enjoyed your trip report. I happen to love the People Mover but it's nostalgia for me knowing it since childhood being fearful of Space Mountain it was a way for me to see it and relax my feet from walking all day. The tiki brids I agree I absolutely loved this is as a child but seeing it last year I was bored it's still a classic for me though. And Illuminations I really enjoy and I like that it's laid back I don't need to see it every trip though. Each family has it's own tastes and styles.

Nobody answered my previous question about the People Mover so let me try again. Was the ride BROKEN when I rode it? As I recall, it enters the various buildings (like Space Mountain) and you can see a little of what the ride is about while you're in there. So the People Mover was sort of a little preview of Tomorrowland. When we rode it, there's was nothing but a pitch black tunnel in almost every building we went in.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority,aka Peoplemover is sort of a preview of Tomorrowland. You see a brief part of Space Mountain & Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. Otherwise it is just a relaxing ride above Tomorrowland.

Good question about the People mover I rode it again in 2011 and you are right I didn't see much going on Space Mountain, but my last trip last August I saw a few of the rockets going by the hard part it is if there is no action when you are at that point of the People mover but you should be able to see the rockets in Space Mountain it's a very dark ride, did you get to ride Space Mountain? I rode it once as I am a ride chicken I screamed the entire team it was a bit jerky and like a Wild Mouse ride in the dark I am glad I experenced it once.

OK then, it sounds like something was broken when we road it then because the only thing I saw in any of the buildings was a little bit of the Buzz Lightyear ride.
