    That's it! I have no idea why I remember this after so many years.

    I remember and miss all of them. My wife and I caught the Dancing Water show about 10 years ago. Even then, it was showing some age and wear. And the waterfalls was one of my favorite spots. It really added something special to the hotel, as did the entire building that featured the Monorail station and the restaurants and shops.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    I have a vague memory of some sort of panoramic, circle-vision type show in Tomorrowland. It seems like maybe there were nature shots, but thats all Ive got. Does anyone else remember that?

    I also remember holographic lollipops toward the end of the millennium.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    Tomorrowland hosted American Journeys, and before that America the Beautiful, both in circle-vision for many, many years. They also showed Wonders of China in circle-vision for a while for part of the day.

    I don't remember holographic lollipops, though.

    It was Circle-Vision 360, Disney's then-new film process for photographing and projecting a 360-degree film image. (Originally called Circarama, the name was changed when Cinerama protested that the name was too similar to their widescreen process.)

    Circle-Vision photos here and at Daveland.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    Yup Circle Vision, later part of the que for Rocket Rods. They still had a show while you were waiting, it was one of the more entertaining lines. I wish they would do something with that room again. My grandparents would take me to the hotel to see the dancing waters show, play with the boats, and walk through the grotto every time I can to stay with them. Wow that was over 20 years ago.

    Yup. Remember them all and miss them dearly. Still haven't forgiven TDA for tearing it all out and replacing it with a lawn.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    I'm still surprised they didn't put in at least a different circle vision attraction there. Budget-wise, it would have been relatively cheap to swap one movie for another. At the time I was hoping for the Timekeeper from WDW, since that really was a great show.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    Another old memory: Rufus (I think that was his name). You could hear him snoring at the entrance to Bear Country (aka Critter Country). His snoring could be heard in Splash Mountain for a time.

    I still miss that snore. For a while, they even had a name sign outside of the snoring bear cave in Splash Mountain that said "Rufus." They changed it to Bre'r Bear years ago.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    The area that the circle vision was is now Buzz Light Years Astro Blasters attraction.

    I have a vague memory of a ride that went on a relaxing journey throughout Tomorrowland. It was later replaced with something stupid I think. I just can't recall the name.

    That was People Mover. replacing it was the single biggest blunder in Disney history, right after hiring Paul Pressler.

    Rocket Rods. One of the biggest attractions failures in recent history. Used not only the PeopleMover queue but also the CircleVision theatre as its queue. All that work for an attraction that ran for two years before they pulled the plug.

    Re: Jog some memory cells

    Anyone remember the old Dick Dale music for space mountain? I loved that music. I have that music on ITunes. I also remember you could see if the rocket was going to have sound if the red light was on in the back of the rocket. Not light: no music.
