Flight to the Moon Description

Flight to the Moon disney worldFlight to the Moon was an (almost) original attraction in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland park area. The attraction made its debut shortly after the park opening, making its debut to the public in December 1971.

The ride included a pre-show segment featuring the iconic narrator Tom Morrow and then the core show which was essentially an interactive flight simulator.

This show ran from 1971-1975 and was replaced by the (very similar) Mission to Mars show. In the space where this attraction once took flight is currently Stitch’s Great Escape…or whatever ends up replacing it.
