On what Magic Kingdom attraction will you hear an announcement for Mr. Tom Morrow?
This attraction often has no line and is a great way to kick up your heels after a long day at the Magic Kingdom. In fact you can enjoy the Carousel of Progress and this ride and spend some time relaxing.
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority provides a ride through, where else, Tomorrowland. The tour is 10 minutes long and takes you through Buzz Lightyears Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, Mickey’s Star Traders and there are great early models of Epcot and Space Mountain.
The ride was originally called the WEDWAY People mover and opened to the public on July 1st of 1975. With no engine this is an environmentally-safe attraction. It is propelled magnetically along the raised tracks through Tomorrowland.
So who is this Mr. Tom Morrow? Well let me tell you. Originally while TTA passed by the Carousel of Progress the line went “Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow, your party from Saturn has arrived. Please give them a ring.” This was removed for a short time and due to popular demand, Mr. Tom Morrow was added back into the narration in June 2010. He has changed locations and is now mentioned while passing through Space Mountain. It goes “Paging Mr. Morrow. Mr. Tom Morrow. Please contact Mr. Johnson in the Control Tower to confirm your flight to the moon.”
