Originally called the WEDway PeopleMover, this prototype of a linear induction-powered mass-transit system carries riders on a leisurely tour around the rooftops of Tomorrowland. (Walt Disney's middle name was Elias, so W.E.D. were his initials.) Walt Disney envisioned the PeopleMover as a public transit system for the city of the future that he wanted to build in Disney World, on the site of what became the Epcot theme park years after his death. Keep your eyes open while you ride to see a fragment of the original model for that city.


A good tour, not as good as Disneyland's but still great
The Peoplemover is a hidden gem. So many people are surprised by how I love this ride. It's just so amazing and underrated. It's a no-wait, slow-moving diversion that offers nice views of Tomorrowland. It makes for a good rest, and for most people, that’s it. If you’re looking for an attraction that’s more of an engaging experience, then the Peoplemover is probably not the ride for you. I find it so relaxing and it just feels like a classic. It does go through Space Mountain, so a portion of it is in the dark, which might scare kids. I recommend you must do this at night because it's one of the best experiences at Disney World. When you're cruising over the beautiful Tomorrowland at night when everything is lit and there is a perfect breeze, it's just so magical and is one of those Disney theme park moments you will always remember. Do this whenever, there is really never any wait. 9/10
I have so much love for this ride. It's relaxing, it has nice views and it is long. I give it a 10/10
It's the one ride that I experience every single time I'm at The Magic Kingdom. It's also the thing I miss most when I'm at Disneyland. The lack of kinetic visual interest in the DL version of Tomorrowland is a real displeaser. Take advantage of it my Floridian friends. You are lucky to have it.
Relaxing, entertaining, and a fun way to get off your feet for a few minutes. Absolutely better at night then during the day- the views of Main Street and the Castle are not to be missed.
The Peoplemover at night is one of the best experiences at WDW. Tomorrowland is arguably the best land at night, and Peoplemover not only provides the best views of it but also the best views of the castle at night. It is just the perfect opportunity to slow down and take in the land. You can just get off your feet and ride past the neon of Tomorrowland. I love it and consider it a must do. 8/10
Going inside space mountain is this attractions highlight, it's very relaxing and it gives you a cool perspective of tomorrowland.
More fun than it looks!
I love this ride. It is very relaxing. 10/10.
The People Mover is such a great way to relax and observe the park from a different perpective. I loved it. 9/10.
No story, no effects, no thrills - and still one of my favorite things to do at Magic Kingdom. A liesurely ride around Tommorrow Land. A relaxing and smooth ride that gets you off your feet, and allows you to just take in the land, including peaks behind-the-curtains into the big rides. Perfect in its simplicity.
This attraction never has a line, and is easily overlooked. It's a great ride though, a relaxing tour of Tomorrowland that takes you inside Space Mountain. If you want a chance to unwind and just see the sights, ride this.
A relaxing, cool hidden gem hidden above Tomorrowland.
The hidden gem of tomorrow land! A surprisingly fun ride that rarely has a line! 9/10
