Starting at the second floor boarding area, you'll hop onto "the highway in the sky" and start the tour through Tomorrowland® Area.
You'll begin by moving around Astro Orbiter and past Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. Catch a beautiful glimpse of Cinderella Castle, and then glide past early architectural models of EPCOT® in its planning stages (Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow). Next, you'll look down into Star Traders gift shop and cruise over Tomorrowland Speedway. Peek inside Space Mountain® Attraction (you might even hear the screams of guests riding Space Mountain), and then the train will circle back by Tomorrowland Speedway and Astro Orbiter.
You'll travel around the exterior of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, and take a look inside Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin® Attraction. Concluding the tour of Tomorrowland® Area, you'll go back by Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and Stitch’s Great Escape!
Tomorrowland® Transit Authority PeopleMover is a 10-minute narrated tour on a slow-moving tram in Tomorrowland® Area at Magic Kingdom® Park. You must take an escalator to the second floor boarding area. The escalator is located in the center of Rockettower Plaza directly beside the entrance to Astro Orbiter. Each car seats 4 guests with 2 riding forward and 2 riding backward. You will have the same views whichever way you sit. There are no lap restraints and this ride is suitable for guests of all ages. The trams do not come to a complete stop for boarding, but they slow down enough to make loading and unloading very easy. Guests must walk by themselves or be assisted by a member(s) of their party to experience this attraction; there is no wheelchair access.
