Walt Disney on Tomorrowland, in 1955: “A vista into a world of wondrous ideas, signifying man’s achievements … a step into the future, with predictions of constructive things to come. Tomorrow offers new frontiers in science, adventure and ideals: the Atomic Age, the challenge of outer space and the hope for a peaceful, unified world.”
Overview: Tomorrowland opened as one of five original lands at Disneyland Park on July 17, 1955 and has had more attractions than any other park area. Guests have experienced the “world of tomorrow” through experiences such as the Carousel of Progress, Adventure Thru Inner Space and the PeopleMover. In 1998, Tomorrowland was completely redesigned for the third time since park opening, with a retro-futuristic, Jules Verne-inspired theme. Since 2005, Tomorrowland has grown to include attractions such as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue and the re-launch of Space Mountain.
What’s new: Superheroes unite inside Innoventions, immersing guests in worlds unlike any other. Guests come face-to-face with Captain America himself for the first time at a Disney Park. Thor: Treasures of Asgard began welcoming visitors at Innoventions in November 2013, inviting them to explore the home world of Thor and his mighty hammer, Mjolnir. Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries features the Hall of Armor as seen in “Iron Man 3″ and other props from the film.
Don’t miss: Tomorrowland has 10 attractions, including Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, where guests challenge the Evil Emporer Zurg. Guests dive deep into the depths of liquid space in Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage or blast off into the furthest reaches of the final frontier on Space Mountain, a FastPass attraction. During Halloween Time, the attraction becomes the spooky Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. Other FastPass attractions in Tomorrowland are Star Tours – The Adventures Continue and Autopia. Tomorrowland also features five shops, including Star Traders, which offers Star Wars and other space-age collectables.
