LO­CA­TION

See­ing this at­trac­tion up above can lead to con­fu­sion as to how you ac­tu­ally get up there to en­joy it. The en­trance is lo­cated at the rear of the Lunch­ing Pad counter ser­vice lo­ca­tion, which is right be­low the Astro Or­biter, in the cen­ter of To­mor­row­land. The line for the Peo­ple­mover is right next to it.

QUEUE/PRE-SHOW EX­PE­RI­ENCE

There is no Fast­pass+ for this at­trac­tion. The line is ac­tu­ally two parts… You must first wait in a line at ground level be­fore en­ter­ing an el­e­va­tor and head­ing up to the "load­ing plat­form.” Once up there, there is an­other small line to wait in be­fore you ride. The wait down­stairs is out in open-air, with­out much to look at, but up­stairs pro­vides a nice lit­tle view.

AT­TRAC­TION EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Each ride ve­hi­cle sits two peo­ple, one in front of the other. Upon re­ceiv­ing au­tho­riza­tion from “Ground Con­trol” to board your space­ship, ve­hi­cles be­gin a se­ries of rev­o­lu­tions high

above To­mor­row­land for ap­prox­i­mately 1 minute and 30 sec­onds. Plan­ets also spin above you, and you can move your ve­hi­cle up and down with a lever in­side the ve­hi­cle. This is sim­i­lar to Dumbo and the Magic Car­pets of Aladdin.

WHO WILL LOVE IT?

Kids and space-lovers will find this at­trac­tion fun. Oth­ers will en­joy get­ting a unique view of To­mor­row­land as you spin around.

FI­NAL TIPS

I sug­gest rid­ing Astro Or­biter at least once dur­ing the day, and a sec­ond time at night, to get two dif­fer­ent views of To­mor­row­land.
