Disney's TTA Renamed "Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover"

The "Tomorrowland Transit Authority" has been renamed to "Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover". The original name of this attraction on opening day, July 1, 1975 was "Wedway Peoplemover". It was renamed "Tomorrowland Transit Authority" in 1994.

Here is a statement from Disney:

'The PeopleMover ride system plays an important role in Disney history and
heritage and it is for this very reason we have decided to restore its name
here in the Magic Kingdom. The name change from the Tomorrowland
Transit Authority to the TTA PeopleMover is a way for us to link the past
with the present, and in turn, guide us into the future. It is a way for all the
promise and wonder that the word "PeopleMover" still holds, to carry on
into new generations.'

I am not quite sure why the name was ever changed at all. I have always and will always call the attraction, "The Peoplemover".

What are your thoughts?

  1. I agree with you. I never called it TTA. In Detriot, MI there is a PeopleMover so I grew up with that name in my head. TTA sounds more offical...PeopleMover is more relaxed. I also think that PeopleMover is more recognized for what it is/does. TTA....people may not have known what it was. We cant wait til we get to ride the "PeopleMover" this spring. : )
