The People Mover--who knew?

We just returned from the World and we had a blast! My kids LOVED the People Mover at Magic Kingdom. We went twice! It was a nice break from the walking and the intermittent misting rain, but besides that they completely enjoyed it each time and wanted to go again. I just thought I would give a shout out to this apparently under-appreciated attraction!

This is one of my favorite things to do as well. Whenever I need a break from walking or the heat, I jump on this attraction.

We love the People Mover!

Never a line, gives the feet a break, plus gives you a nice birds eye view of the park as well as a peek inside SM.

Love the Peoplemover. When I was at WDW for OMDD, I rode this multiple times throughout the night/early morning. It was my "go to" ride when I was so tired I was hallucinating.

We ride several times each trip. We have a series of pictures for when the "G-forces" kick in. Love this ride!

My kids love this ride too! It broke down right before we were supposed to get on and they were so disappointed.

We ride it multiple times a day. We love it. It is definitely best at night though, so you can actually see inside space. A few years ago, they kept the peoplemover on when space was under construction. Now that was neat to see!

The People Mover is a family favorite here for sure. Been on it 3 times when it broke down too, but we ride it multiple times each time we visit. Love it most at night and seeing the castle lit up.
