Mission To Mars
Default Hostess Spiel
"Disneyland is a show." - Walt Disney
At an attraction such as the Jungle Cruise or the Storybook Land Canal Boats, the Ride Operator is the narrative presentation. With a show like The Enchanted Tiki Room, or Mission to Mars (and Rocket to the Moon before it), the Cast Member plays a smaller interactive role. Sometimes the Cast Member is busy helping a guest and cannot return to the stage to hit their mark, have the spotlight fade up on them and deliver their lines. In those cases, the Default Recorded Spiel plays, and the show continues.
Mission To Mars Default Hostess Recording - February 1976
This is the spiel the Hostess gave as you filed into the Mission Control Observation Area:
Ladies and gentlemen, this is our McDonnell-Douglas Mission Control Room at Disneyland
Spaceport. The Director of Operations has been expecting you, and while we're
waiting for our flight to be called, he'll take a few minutes to describe what's
going on. Excuse me, Mr. Johnson? All the passengers for Flight Two-Ninety-Five
are now in the Boarding Area.
The explanations continue and a bird lands badly, somehow triggering the Spaceport Security Alarms. (The loud alarms are to warn the Hostess backstage that she's on in ten seconds...) She hits her mark, the spotlight fades up and amusement ensues:
Johnson: Somehow, this silly bird trips the
emergency system every time he comes in. And I think he knows the laugh's on us!
At the end of the presentation, your Hostess steps back into the spotlight to lead us to our flight:
Disneyland Flight #295 to Mars is now ready for boarding on Gate Number Three.
<Go, go, go>
Once seated in the spacecraft, your Hostess really acts like a Flight Attendant:
Hostess: Ladies and Gentleman, welcome aboard our McDonnell-Douglas DC-88 Spaceliner for today's mission to Mars. The Captain has asked that you remain in your seats at all times, and please, no smoking! 313kb.mp3 (:16sec)
At the end of the adventure, our Hostess bids us adieu:
Hostess: Ladies and Gentlemen, the outer locks are now open and you may vacate the spacecraft. Thank you for flying McDonnell-Douglas today, and we hope to see you again soon. 198kb.mp3 (:10sec)

We surf out a lot of images, icons, gifs, photos and the like from all kinds of sources, and it's so easy to lose track of from whence one has downloaded an image, especially when you've seen it in more than one place. So, if we've used something of yours and we've failed to give you the proper credit for it that you deserve, kindly inform us so that we may remedy our omission. Nearly all of the images on this site can be copied or downloaded, so feel free to host them on your own servers and kindly refrain from direct-linking these images to your own blogs, message boards, sites, or MySpace pages.
Bandwidth pirates may sense a disquieting metamorphosis in images appearing on their sites.
Properly warned, ye be, says I.
