I personally think Disneyland's is in farrrrrrrrr worse shape. There's a lot of bronze like on the Astro Orbiter that clashes hard with the rest of the land. And it's rough looking at that People Mover corpse. Even if it may look not the best it has right now, MK's Tomorrowland is pretty coherent throughout. People tend to forget that the 94 redo of the land made it the most cohesive it's every been, only after did things like Stitch and Laugh Floor come in and take away from the overall theme and dilute the land's story.
Disneyland's is terrible. Yuck. I much prefer WDW's Tomorrowland, if I had to choose between them. But none of them are perfect by any means.

Disneyland’s TL is pretty dull and uninspiring. I think I’ve said it here before, but I think it’s easily the worst overall land out of the three castle parks I’ve been to (DL, MK, DLP).

The current look had to go... It was dated and stale and was just not working anymore if it ever did.

Now is going back to the classic look the right direction? I am not sure yet as I like certain things I have seen we have a long long ways to go to make tomorrowland look complete and uniformed again.

I am not sure they will even have a Tomorrowland when all is said and done. And that would be a good thing.

The MK could end up with the definitive Walt inspired Tomorrowland. All the basics are there. That would also be a good thing.

Just an inkling.🎄🎅🌟

The Astro Orbitor at the entrance was also a massive mistake (how about this, stop putting spinners in the middle of heavily traveled areas ...). I'd hope moving it would be part of their plan. If they even have a plan.

Kind of ironic in that Disneyland is the one that should be the definitive Walt inspired Tomorrowland ...

Definitely.

But WDW has the space to have specialized places. It is a luxury that TDO should take full advantage of.

Not to mention they also have a peoplemover, CoP and the shell of a Circlevision theater. And an omnimover. And a rocket themed spinner. All the pieces of the puzzle.

Agreed. They do have all the pieces for the "perfect" Tomorrowland. I think MiLf and Buzz are the main problems. But they aren't "problems" in certain ways. I know that sounds weird. LOL.

I think TRON will also help and fit well, but I know that's a sore subject for many. It's not what the park needs now, but I know they want to "overhaul" Tomorrowland first, so it is what it is.

I'm also looking closely at how they "re-do" the Speedway.

I think they kind of phone it in a lot with Florida and they really shouldn't. It should indeed be the premier park, IMHO. Next to Walt's original Disneyland, of course. That has a whole different charm about it that makes it truly special.

I'm curious as to if the blue/purple rocks were conceived of this new (old?) aesthetic direction or if that was a separate decision. While the new paint on the AstroOrbiter platform , new signage, and the lovely newish Joffrey's kiosk all gel quite well, the blue rocks blend only marginally better than the old tan ones did... meaning not at all.

I am very eager to hear what the eventual STG replacement will be. And MILF and Buzz could def take a hike and I'd be ok with it, even though I do enjoy those attractions, it just feels like there could be something better there.
Agreed on Buzz and MiLf. They could definitely do better in those spots. I don't dislike either too much and MiLf is underrated (when you get the right audience) and just in the wrong park. Buzz is badly in-need of a solid refurb, but I'd also like a replacement because I don't think we need two Toy Story based shooters. Though I find Buzz to be the better shooter because it's an actual dark ride, in some ways. Mania is very fun but so overhyped (IMO). If I had my way, Stitch would have been in the theater, Alien would have stayed, and Buzz was fine for the time but I'd appreciate something new. MILF should have gone into DHS, but I get the park is already show heavy (and they're adding something similar with Racing Academy). But Tokyo gets away with having a Monsters presence. I bet if we had a dark ride on that scale instead of a theater show it'd have gotten more of a pass here (but it would still be in the wrong park; at least in Tokyo, Monsters makes a tad more sense as they can't exactly put it in DisneySea).

That's nice to hear for once. They actually have a plan. Why is Florida always all over the place yet other parks have actual plans? (have they settled on a Stitch replacement? Mary? Future World? etc.)
They also have / had plans for Epcot and DHS.

We may not like them, but they're plans.
Doesn't mean DL's TL plan is a good one either

I never said DL's was going to be good. But if they have a plan in Florida, why can't they make a decision on what to do with so many different things?

I have no doubt plans exist, I probably should have phrased it better. But we also get mostly fully laid out timelines for all of the other parks.

With Florida we know so much because of our insiders. It always feels like they fly by the seat of their pants. And notice I said "it feels like" ... meaning it's the impression they give me :)

You don't need to always jump to the defense of them :)
