Trace the origins of Test Track back to 1976, then see the proposals and concepts for the World of Motion replacement. See how Test Track was built, how close to the 1982 ride path the new one is, and how the current attraction works. See why it took so long to open, with both preview videos, then walk the line into the briefing rooms for a split screen preshow. Next, take a multi angle complete ride with enhanced audio and LCD screen inset, browse the postshow area, and finally take the outside loop at night. 39 minutes long. Enjoy!
The history of WDWs Monorails, roads, busses and watercraft. Includes World Drive circa 1990 with the original, new, Disney MGM junctions, brown signs and original MK Auto plaza. Orange and brown parking trams are in fashion, as is a bland T&TC. Journey over Seven Seas Lagoon on the Magic Kingdom I with Jack Wagner, and around it – to and from the MK – in a MkIV monorail cab with Jack too. Ride in the cab to EPCOT Center, and take a brown tram back to the MK lot and to Futureworld. See the original Monorail plans from 1970, and 1975`s expansions, and also see the history of the Friendships, WDWs watercraft on Seven Seas and Bay Lake, Lake Buena Vista and Crescent Lakes waterways, and the bus fleet.
Travel back to 1972 to see the rush to design and build If You Had Wings. Then take a full multi angle ride with a source audio mix. Following this, take a full multi angle ride of Dreamflight, with a full source music mix!
The first of my major re edits. I`ve gone all out for the best quality I can with these “Ultimate” videos. My “Ultimate” though – I`m sure with access to WDIs video and audio archives it could be better still! I`ve re digitised all the media I can; tapes, audio, even pictures at the highest quality I can for these and I hope it shows. Not to mention (hopefully) better editing and the little things like spot fx here and there too. I also have more media to choose from this time around, so I`ve managed to cover even more details. That`s the idea anyhow, here`s the blurb:
Full backstory from the 1978 Transportation pavilion to Motion. Full concept and construction section, maps of the building, ride and Transcenter, then full multi angle ride thru of the attraction with full source music & narration, and enhanced audio fx. Also features improved enhancement of the Center Core finale.
Then take a trip around Transcenter, with the Bird and the Robot show in full.
A look at the history if the Rivers and their shoreline, with The Admiral Joe Fowler, Richard F Irvine and the Liberty Belle. A full cruise around Tom Saywers Island with it`s history, and the Mike Fink Keel Boats and Explorer Canoes. All with source audio and footage from 1971 to the present day.
This video traces the history of Peoplemovers back to before the `64 Worlds Fair, thru Disneylands version and to the WEDWay of 1975. Features a full WEDWay night time ride with a live ORAC-1 narration around the Star Jets, above Mission to Mars, thru the E.P.C.O.T. model and above Mickeys Mart. The enter Space Mountain and RYCA-1, travel the mountain with lights off and on, pass the skyway station full of guests, circle the Carousel of Progress and travel above Dreamflight and American Journeys. I`ve also included what day time WEDWay footage I have, loads of archived pictures and footage, and there is a short trip on the Star Jets too. All to period music.
