Attraction Information

  • Attraction Opening: April 15th, 1993
  • Length of Attraction: 24 min.
  • Theater Capacity: 632 guests per showing
  • Attraction Description: While showing off his "Time Machine", Timekeeper and his lovely assistant, 9-Eyes, give us a 360-degree view of various times and places from the past and future. While on one of these trips, 9-eyes attracts the attention of famed science fiction writer and futurist Jules Verne at the 1900 Universal Expo on the Future. From then on, we follow the two around time and space while "Timekeeper" tries to get them back to their proper place and era!
  • Highlights: The voice of "Timekeeper" is played by popular comedian Joji Tokoro while the voice of "9-Eyes" is actress Yuki Saitoh. In one of the film scenes, the model for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty's Castle, Neuschwanstein Schloss in Germany can be seen. Also, a Mickey-shaped hot air balloon in one of the scenes actually made an appearance during Tokyo Disneyland's 12th Anniversary.
  • More highlights: The pre-show is held inside Timekeeper's "Visionarium" as a tribute to such visionaries as Jules Verne and famed futurist H.G. Wells. It also hosts his study, library and laboratory.
