Astro Oribiter

Similar to The Magic Carpets of Aladdin or Dumbo the Flying Elephant this is another ride that simply goes around a hub with the guests able to change the altitude of the vehicle. There is one thing that sets this version above the others though. Before you can board the vehicle you must take the elevator up to it. That means you you start at a higher altitude and get more of a view. Certainly this is not a grumpy must see but you should at least take one voyage on the orbiter! The view is more impressive at night!

The Astro Orbiter in Tomorrowland is a cut “above” the two similar rides in the Magic Kingdom

Okay since I am a Disney addict and they don't have a twelve step program for Walt Disney World I will serve my addiction by blogging about the place I'd rather be!

  1. The ride is totally ruined by that elevator- they need to upgrade that little claustraphobia chamber!

  2. I cannot disagree with you on that one but it has been a long time since I have ridden this one.
