Creative and fun!
Come along for a time-travelling journey with The Time Keeper and 9-Eye in this 1992 Walt Disney World attraction, at the Magic Kingdom!

I visited this attraction in March 1997, when I was 14, during my second trip to Walt Disney World. It was nearing park closing time, but my mom, brother, and I wanted to do something else, so my father watched one of those bands performing in the park while we hit this attraction.

As you enter the rather large theater (standing room only), you are greeted by the Time Keeper (voice of the great Robin Williams) and his sidekick, 9-Eye (voice of Rhea Perlman), a pesky robot that resembles a big electronic eyeball. Time Keeper sends 9-Eye back in time to different time periods, where she kidnaps Jules Verne, hears Mozart with his first composition, watches Leonardo da Vinci paint, careens down a mountain on a bobsled, and meets inventor H.G. Wells. 9-Eye brings Jules Verne (Jeremy Irons) back to the present. It's one action-packed and humorous adventure through time!

This was a surprisingly good attraction. My mom picked it, so my brother and I didn't know what to think, but we liked it the minute we found out Robin Williams was in it. What surprised me after we saw it was that 9-Eye was Rhea Perlman, who my mom recognized right away. Time Keeper resembled C3PO from "Star Wars" (one movie I can do without!), and the time-travelling experience was awesome! I didn't know it then, but now that I think about it, it was alot like being on a really cool episode of "Quantum Leap." I guess it's the whole time-travel element.

This was a great attraction, and I would definitely take the trip again! It was worth every minute!
