News Tomorrowland love

I love how they put back the retro signage for the Monster's Inc Laugh Floor. Recently, I thoroughly looked through footage of pre-1994 MK Tomorrowland (especially 70's and early 80's), and am in love with that clean, sleek look. I think the 94 redo has reached its expiration date. In my opinion, the original look was more timeless. Probably the thing that sticks out the most from the 1994 redo is the Astro Orbiter. To me, it looks like a giant, cartoonish mobile a toddler would have in his bedroom. Even when I was a kid, I thought it looked kind of obnoxious. Changing it to something more like the original Star Jets would give Tomorrowland a more tastefully sleek skyline.

Are you saying they’re not going to have AC in the passenger cars?? Has this been confirmed? I’m sweating already just thinking about this!
As a cost-saving measure, the a/c units that have been on the Speedway and Walt Disney World Railroad since 1971 are being removed. Sad. I’ll miss comfortable August drives on the Speedway past trees and other impressive story elements.

that was a cool attraction...i remember being shaken around a bit..effects were really good

i only went to DLP once but i was impressed by haunted mansion(the best)...
crush coaster was unexpected and fun..
DLP space mountain is really fun..theming and thrills are top notch..smooth ride and great launch...
I was just there a few weeks ago (first trip), and I wonder if some of the effects we're working or I couldn't see them. I found it to be pretty underwhelming and repetitive. Though I've heard good things. My first thought walking in was - this is what should be in the SGE space!

(And Paris' SM is good - though the Hyperspace Mountain overlap of amazing steampunk with Star Wars is very odd. I'd really like to see the original or Mission 2 restored!)

I was one of the few that actually liked Bronze Space Mountain.
The problem was they didn’t go all the way. They wanted to bring over the Victorian/steampunk version of Tomorrowland they made for Paris but then got gold feet when they realized it didn’t make as much sense in America and in the original park so there were competing visions on how to redo the land plus the budget was constantly getting cut. Had they went fully with Discoveryland overlay I think the bronze Space Mountain would have worked (especially if they redid the ride).

It’s sad because Tony Baxter essentially lost his job and imagineering went to the dogs because of that fiasco.

I will say this... if all this work goes on to spiff up signage and no one rebalances the bed music during CoP’s “Papa, I’m not decent!” scene, I will spew.

That audio is so chronically poorly mixed that even the fan-created audio tracks for the ride have her drown out by production music... we’ve all basically decided that’s canon.

Also, don’t get me started on how the stage left to right pan when the fuse blows is always slightly out of Phase and breaks the illusion.
