November 21, 1994 – The Timekeeper Attraction Opens in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland

“It worked! And they laughed at me back at university! Maybe it was because of the tutu.”

On November 21, 1994, the Tomorrowland attraction The Timekeeper opened in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. It was adapted from the Disneyland Paris attraction Un Voyage à Travers le Temps, and used the Circle-Vision 360° film technique, along with Audio-Animatronics, to tell a narrative. Guests would wait in the lobby and meet the invention known as 9-Eye (voiced by Rhea Perlman). Guests would then enter the theater and meet the Timekeeper (voiced by Robin Williams), an inventor who created a time machine. He then sends 9-Eye back in time to record her experiences in important times of the past. The attraction became a seasonal attraction on April 29, 2001, closing for good on February 26, 2006.
