YouTube 21. Mission to Mars - 1984

This clip is from the classic Tomorrowland attraction, Mission to Mars. It was taken by my dad with early 1980's video recording technology, so it is a little dark and slightly grainy. However it gives you a feel for what it was all about. Mission to Mars replaced "Flight to the Moon" in 1975 and lasted until 1993. In 1995, it was succeeded by "ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter" and this spot is currently occupied by "Stitch's Great Escape." The newer attractions utilize some amazing modern technology, but I grew up enjoying Mission to Mars so it will always be a favorite from a nostalgic point of view. Incidentally, the Disneyland version of this attraction closed exactly 20 years ago today, on November 2nd, 1992.
