Once known as the WEDway People Mover ('WED' being Walter Elias Disney's initials), the Tomorrowland Transit Authority is a linear-induction-powered mass-transit system. This was a once unique technology that transports passengers in silent ride vehicles around Tomorrowland using a magnetic motor system.
The ride was built as an example of future transport using futuristic technology to move vehicles instead of noisy petrol powered vehicles.
This is a relaxing ride where you get a great view of Tomorrowland and the surrounding area. Lines move reasonably quickly and is a good ride to go on during busy times.
The ride also passes through Space Mountain where you can see the roller coaster cars going around the track, in addition to Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.
Whilst not a majorly fun or popular ride, its one of those rides that you can usually have done within 15 minutes in total.
