Does anyone remember the Dancing Waters show at the Hotel? Or the underground waterfalls with the koi pond. Or even the remote tug boats?
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.
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 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?
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
