Is it weird that the Stitch meet & greet is called Stich's Alien Encounter? Talk about dancing on a dead corpse, and then spitting at the people mourning said corpse, all while shouting, "You'll never get this baaack!!"

Nobody wants it back

I heard seeing those waterfalls in person was very cool. So, there is absolutely no chance of those coming back, even though we are at a point where nostalgia is a big thing?

Honestly, I feel mixed about all of the changes. The 1994 Tomorrowland is all I've known, but knowing that what made it special isn't even there anymore (are the only things that remain from that version Sonny Eclipse, the Speedway, CoP, Space Mountain, and the Peoplemover?), I'm okay with moving in a new direction (as long as they keep Sonny, my family loves him). It's pretty neat seeing how smooth the exteriors look without the excess strutctures, and I'm looking forward to see the new color schemes fully in place.

Martin said a while back that they aren't coming back.

The attached picture is his. Someone asked "what should we expect our TL to look like" and he responded with this. Note the spires/waterfalls and how they've been scribbled over...

Tagging @marni1971 . I do occasionally save your pictures for archival reasons (and to see how true things you hint at are...as a fun game). I'd never claim credit to your work, no matter how un-watermarked some of them are. And I'd be sure to tag you, like in this case.

Fountain technology has come a long way since 1971... They could totally do the waterfalls now with less overspray then was happening years ago...and yes! The waterfalls were amazing! I was obsessed with them from the first time I saw them at 8 years old ...

I have vague memories of the original all white look of Tomorrowland and actually remember when I next visited WDW and how taken aback I was that it had all changed. I never hated the change, but I do remeber feeling a bit sad that something I remebered from a very young age along with memories of wonder and excitement was no longer there. I think this next phase of Tomorrowland will maybe be something in the middle of what was and what is. Less clutter but still more color and vibrancy. Now if they can just figure out what to put in Stitch and maybe give Buzz a refresh with some updated tech and not so maybe cardboard cutouts, that'd be great!

So what was the issue with those waterfall spires anyway? Why were they removed?
From what I've heard and read on here, any bit of wind would blow water onto the main entrance into TL. This could cause slick concrete but mainly guests were getting a shower they didn't ask for.

It's probably why Tokyo's version don't have water coming out of them. But at least they still have them!

I cant imagine them putting the waterfalls back. I remember when I worked there people always complained it got them wet (apparently even a moderate breeze was enough to send water over the walkway) and for some reason they just couldn't keep them clean.
Keeping any concrete/stucco surface that comes in contact with water continuously is a pain to keep clean here in FL. I have to power-wash the house probably 3 times a year to keep it from getting stains from the rain. I imagine the height and location of them made it difficult.

Well, I say since screens are such a big deal now...bring 'em back screen style. Simulated waterfalls and all that jazz.

Edit: And if they simulate waterfalls, they could add colors!

(I got ideas.)
