Timekeeper: For your safety, I've invented rails for you to lean on. I call them lean rails. Please do not sit on the lean rails, because they're for leaning. And don't sit on the floor. My studies show you cannot experience Time Travel on the floor.

One of the Best Disney attractions ever
16 January 2004 | by kevinmcgSee all my reviews

I have seen this film many times as the Timekeeper attraction in New Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World.

Even though this attraction came about in the 1990s, it is very much a testament to the spirit of entertainment that Walt Disney created. It combines all of the elements that Walt was either a master of or created during his lifetime: Movies, story, music, engaging characters, Circelvision and Audio-Animatronics. The story itself is a dedication to great inventors and visionaries of history, using the characters of HG Wells and Jules Verne as the "stars" of the piece with visits to some other memorable visionaries of western civilization.

In one segment, there is a breathtaking view of New York City at night time. I was glad to see that shots of the World Trade Center towers were still seen in the film and not digitally removed....it obviously evoked the memory not only of a place now gone, but also the memory of the people who lost their lives in one of the darkest days in American history.
