Thecoasterviews Walt Disney World Astro Orbiter HD- POV Magic Kingdom Florida
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.
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.
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.
I suggest riding Astro Orbiter at least once during the day, and a second time at night, to get two different views of Tomorrowland.
