April 29, 2001 – The Timekeeper Attraction Closes in Walt Disney World

“For your safety, I’ve invented rails for you to lean on. I call them, ‘lean rails.’ Please do not sit on the lean rails because…they’re there to lean on.”

On April 29, 2001, the Tomorrowland attraction The Timekeeper closed in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. It was adapted from the Disneyland Paris attraction Un Voyage à Travers le Temps (known as From Time to Time in English), 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. After the attraction closed, it would reopen seasonally until it officially closed on February 26, 2006; it was eventually replaced by the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.
