Welcome to those of you joining me from My Dreams of Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail
Tomorrowland - The Future That Never Was
The 1990's retro-futuristic take on Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland is the Tomorrowland that I know and love. Featuring Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority/People Mover/Blue Line, a few different alien inspired attractions, the Carousel of Progress, and the Astro Orbiter, this land has always been one I've loved. Tomorrowland is also the land that has never been completed, had a consistent theme, or can possibly stay up-to-date with it's theme, thus inspiring the "retro-future" we all know today at the Florida park.
Disneyland Resort's Tomorrowland is fairly different. Though I have yet to experience it in person, I'm always shocked to hear that their People Mover is inactive. Disneyland's Tomorrowland seems to have an even less-consistent theme than WDW - it hosts many attractions shared on both costs, but with the expansive space available in Florida, the east coast versions are in many different locations.
The 5 Disneyland Tomorrowland attractions shared with Walt Disney World that are located in completely different areas...
- Star Tours - Hollywood Studios
- Captain EO - Epcot
- Monorail - more of an actual mode of transportation than attraction at WDW
- Innoventions - Epcot
- Railroad - WDW does not have a stop in Tomorrowland
- Jedi Training Academy - Hollywood Studios
|Walt Disney World's Space Mountain Kitchen - who doesn't want that?|
There are a few similarities, even with their own touches -
- Space Mountain - ride vehicles are 2 per seat at DLR as opposed to single at WDW
- Buzz Light Year Astro Blasters - DLR offers removable shooters - much better to aim!
- Autopia - different ride vehicles at each park. Both drastically outdated!
I think the Astro Orbiter may be the most similar of the attractions between Tomorrowlands, but as I have yet to experience it, I may be wrong!
Personally, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover is one of my favorite attractions - an absolute must do every time, making Magic Kingdom my winning land. I love the views, the narration, the special tour around the Magic Kingdom. I wish the People Mover at DLR would re-open in time for my June visit!
