    The tracks are still up there. Everyone wants the People Mover back. Do the math. Be patient. Ouimet is a smart guy. He knows what his customers want.

    But the tracks aren't there. I think it would be a terribly unwise decision on Disney's part to reuse the Rocket Rods track.

    Personally, I'm very torn on how I would feel about the PeopleMover returning.

    No, the track is still there. Its just in bad shape because the Rocket Rods cracked the concrete.

    And why would you be torn about that?

    Its a brilliant ride and made Disneyland's TL actually fun. Not like the dead land it is now.

    No, the track is not there. The means of propulsion for the PeopleMover and the Rocket Rods are two entirely different systems. The Rocket Rods were individually powered vehicles that drew their power from the tracks. A true WEDway does not have powered vehicles, but vehicles that are propelled by the track either using tires embedding into the track (Disneyland style) or LIMs (Magic Kingdom style). The Rocket Rods track system proved to be unreliable and I believe to reuse it as a PeopleMover would be contrary to the nature of a WEDway and once again prove to be problematic.

    I'm torn because I do not see the big draw to the PeopleMover outside of Disney Dorkdom, sort of tying into my issue with the track. In all honesty I feel something closer to the Rocket Rods would be much better at envoking images of the future in the average guest.

    Yes, the track is there. It was changed a bit for Rocket Rods - but the main structure holding it up still exists - even though it looks like crap.

    And I agree with you - I think a ride that has the qualities of both the PM and Rocket Rods would be best.

    Or even better - have BOTH rides!

    well, the cement pillars and track layout has been there for years, I doubt they would leave it up for all these years just so it can sit there and start to fall apart, I'm sure they are planning to use it for something in the near future...

    The people mover added motion to Tomorrowland and it eats people so there was almost never a line. As for how good it was? That depended entirely on how good tomorrowland was. It was a great way to catch a glimpse of live shows on the space stage, see progress city from behind, and later see the latest futuristic arcade machines in the two story Starcade and all the amazing products of the future in the Star Trader.

    It's a bit sad, but should the people mover return it would just point out how weak the current Tomorrowland really is. I don't know what they could do short of fixing all of Tomorrowland.
