Last Updated on: March 26th, 2024

“The World Beneath Us” was a former attraction at Disneyland that operated from 1955 to 1960. It was located in Tomorrowland and offered guests an immersive experience exploring the wonders of the Earth’s geological formations and natural resources.

The attraction featured a guided tour that took guests underground, where they could witness various geological formations and learn about the Earth’s composition. It utilized a combination of audio-visual presentations, dioramas, and animatronic figures to educate and entertain visitors.

“The World Beneath Us” aimed to provide an educational experience, showcasing the beauty and diversity of our planet’s natural features. It highlighted the importance of conservation and responsible stewardship of Earth’s resources.

However, “The World Beneath Us” closed in 1960, and the space it occupied has since been utilized for other attractions and experiences in Tomorrowland. Disneyland has continued to evolve and introduce new attractions to provide guests with fresh and exciting experiences.
