WDW TTA: Paging Mr. Morrow

Hello,

I was wondering if anybody has or knows of a really good copy of the WDW TTA: Tomorrowland Transit Authority loop. There is one that is going around on P2P which is ok. It is live. But I thought there might be a soundboard copy or something better.

I have a track where the TTA is departing. It is 25 seconds long and is excellent. I was just hoping that the whole attraction was available, somewhere?

Thanks,

Brian

Sorry, Brian, an inline recording of the TTA announcements is pretty much at the top of the WDW Magic Kingdom collectors' want lists. The 25-second segment of the beginning of the ride from a master source comes from a WDW audio press kit release from the 1990s. No further audio from the source has materialized.

Too Bad. I was really hoping it was out there. But, I guess I will get in line like everybody else and hope that it will be available someday.

Thanks for the info sds910.

Who is the voice of the TTA anouncements?

Yeah, I've always wanted it as well, but its impossible to bootleg it with good quailty. I think that it would be alot nicer if the speaker was in the vehicles somehow, not just to record it, but that way you could only hear it when on the ride and you couldn't hear it when you are at other sections of the ride.

Wasn't there something about the speakers in the original narration? And what else was in that press kit?

As many times as I have been on the ride, I have also been stuck on the ride. One time last summer the ride stopped for 15 minutes. We just sat there. If I knew how to record some of this stuff I probably could have been picked up a decent copy of certain portions of the ride.

One reason, I was hoping this spiel was available was I was thinking that WDW will probably update or change the TTA someday in the future. (ALA Disneyland). Although, I don't know if Disneyland changed the spiel when they updated the attraction.

I hope that it never happens. It is truly one of the last rides that really makes me remember what WDW used to be.

Well parts have changed, I can't remember what was playing before Buzz Lightyear was put in, bit I know the part about the Convention Center has changed (Stitch). I also love the TTA, it is one of my favorite rides.

How about pre-TTA? Anyone else remember when it was a people-mover and they talked about how the cars were moved by magnets. Still seems high-tech even today and it's always bothered me that they don't even mention it anymore.

...or maybe I was just an overimaginative kid and made it all up in my head.
 
Howdy!

Before it was TTA, it was narrated by ORAC-1, Your Commuter Computer (mid-80s) Before that, it was Jack Wagner, who pointed out the sights and explained the linear induction motors.

I found this page by doing a search of ORAC-1 http://home.cfl.rr.com/omniluxe/iyhw-wp.htm

OT: The author of the story said Dreamflight was dull. I never did get to ride IYHW, but by the music and videos, IYHW looks and sounds boring to me. I did get to ride Dreamflight and I love the music from it and the ride was pretty alright.

Then he says "At present these windows look down upon a scene of unintelligible nonsense, which fits in nicely with the rest of the new Tomorrowland.". I'll agree the Buzz ride is not very good, but I love the new Tomorrowland. Its great during the day and at night it has alot of things to look at.

Hi all,

Digital Disney used to have a pretty good version of ORAC-1 narrating the PeopleMover, but the site appears to not exist anymore.

Digital Disney is indeed gone for good. As for Mike Lee's comments about present-day Tomorrowland on his magnificent "Widen Your World" website, I agree with them completely. Remember also that on the original Peoplemover ride looking down into IYHW, you had three views, rather than two (the swirling light effects for Dreamflight causing the final window to be permanently covered over).

For a transcript of Jack Wagner's original Peoplemover narration (compiled by yours truly), check this link.
