In the Magic Kingdom, circling around Tomorrowland, is one of the best and little known rides on property. It changes names often, but most people know it as the TTA, or Tomorrowland Transit Authority. My love of this ride goes all the way back to our first trip in 1981 when it was known as the:
It's something we always ride, sometimes more than once, although not something I always take pictures from. I'm not going to overly bombard you with pictures from every single year, afterall, it's not like the Railroad where you completely circle the park, you are only riding around Tomorrowland and there really isn't that much to see there. So here are some of my favorite shots:

Now that we've arrived at the last trip, let's look around a bit more (and let the photo bombardment begin):
and that's it!
It's not a fabulous or thrilling ride, but it's a great, get-away-from-it-all, quiet, relaxing ride that gives you a moment to breathe in the hustle and bustle world of Disney. Plus, you not only go around Tomorrowland, but you go in and out of rides like Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. There are rumors that CM's have hundreds of surveillance videos of guests really "enjoying" themselves on this ride. Wouldn't surprise me in the least. There have also been injuries and a death or two because people refuse to follow instructions and try to climb from one car to another or get out of the cars altogether. Yeah, I've got no sympathy for those idiots. The TTA is one of my top ten favorite Disney World rides and I can't imagine a trip without it!
