Disney-MGM Studios Backlot Tram Tour – October 1, 1991

Leading up to our next podcast, which will be release soon, we dug up some footage from the Backlot Tour in 1991. This was filmed on 8mm video and there are some notable things to look for. Normally, you would see Herbie sitting there in these early days, doing wheelies, popping the hood, etc. Well in this video, Herbie is gone and we see a truck which looks to be from Ernest Saves Christmas – anybody want to confirm that? We also see some great movie props and movie tie-ins during this tour, including lots from Dick Tracy, The Rocketeer and even City Slickers.
What trip around the backlot would be complete without a visit to Catastrophe Canyon? We get to see this as your ride on this particular video is towards the front of the tram. Overall, a great tour around what is now Toy Story Land & Galaxy’s Edge – this footage from 1991 really takes you back. We have much more coming, so be sure to subscribe on YouTube and look for our next Podcast on the Backlot Tram Tour. Enjoy!

I went up to WDW often in 1990 & 1991, was dating a girl in college and we both loved Disney World. Good times.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
