August 21, 1995 – The PeopleMover Attraction Closes
“Ride tomorrow’s transportation…today!”
On August 21, 1995, the PeopleMover attraction in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland closed. Originally opening in 1967, and given major updates in 1977 and 1982 (with the latter promoting the movie Tron), the attraction was eventually closed as it seemed no longer an innovative attraction keeping with Tomorrowland’s theme of the future. A similar attraction was opened in Walt Disney World in 1975, originally called the WEDway PeopleMover (renamed to the Tomorrowland Transit Authority in 1994). The Disneyland attraction’s technology was replicated in the Houston International Airport for their PeopleMover.
