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.

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.

Ah, relaxation, while moving. We took our niece on this while her parents and my daughter and fiance rode Space Mountain. We called it the train in the sky, and she really liked it. It was nice to be off our feet, too! Also, the line moves really fast!

Another blast from Disneyland's past. A nice relaxing ride around Tomorrowland. Nice to sit for an extended period.

I love this ride! Easy-going, long, and there is NEVER a line. Such a simple premise, and it takes you back to the 60's view of the future. If you ever need a break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the park, this is the place to take it. 8/10.
Just LOVE this ride.
