News Tomorrowland love

It dawned on me today of what is a major thematic 'faux pas' in Tomorrowland. The light rigging in front of the Tomorrowland Stage ruins the theming in that section entirely. 😵

I know they won't be doing anything with it soon but it should be on someone's 'to do' list. It is as bad as The Hulk nets at IoA. But worse because it is a Disney park. 😒

Ideally they should copy the design of the land's new entrance marquee. That would be simple, inexpensive (relatively) and epic looking. Just my unsolicited 2 cents. 💰

I'm right on this one. Take it to the 🏦

Hopefully they add some landscaping during the process, a couple new flower planters or shrubs would be a nice addition to break up what is currently a concrete jungle.
I couldn't place why I felt weird about this visually (regardless of the piecemeal updates we are seeing) and I think you just hit the nail on the head for me. The concrete to greenery ratio as soon as you pass the hub threshold feels wrong.

IS it safe to say that Magic Kingdoms refresh of Tomorrowland (removing the towers etc) is the east coast version of disneyland removing the people mover.
A mistake they regret but cant go back now.

TBH, I don't think I ever noticed the cog designs on the walkways. There were always too many people walking on them.
I'd love if some of the fiberoptic elements EPCOT Future World had were created here.

I don’t like the rocks either.
I liked the rocks in more natural hues. This "hey look, I'm a purple donkey" bit on elements that should be just accepted as nature needs to stop. Disney knows how to make a location look enticing with just lighting.

Agreed - fiber optic lighting on the ground as well as underglow RGB lighting under the people mover track would add a lot. - thats "the future" right now (and would also fit in with the Tron ride)

As it stands, Tomorrowland is always the place that appeals to my heart but is actually one of the last lands I like to walk around in and experience.

maybe i just dont understand the "story" behind them?? Are we on another planet? I thought tomorrowland was earth (once again why are they painted like that then?)... and weve seen in every movie about the future that if we go to the bleak minimalist look.. rocks are the first thing to go.. along with trees. And who is lazy enough to build a city and not dynamite the rocks. What city in 2021 left jagged rocks in the middle of their city (unless its in a park)?
Id rather go pure future industrial or go to a future blends with nature view.

its cool at night from the astro orbiter or people mover.. outside of that i dont even notice the architecture, which is sad compared to everything else disney.

I wouldnt even mind seeing led ribbon boards or ad boards for fictitious companies (maybe they talk to you... hey you in the yellow hat buy some Astro juice) or use the magic band.. (hey richard have you been to mars lately)
and then on the ribbon leds have fictitious news or even ride times, or disney history

I remember when the rock painting started someone on the forums kept saying there was special digital mapping on the silver rocks that would make them come alive at night... Well that was a lie and they just look terrible. WHY is there NO integration of the TRON architecture anywhere else in Tomorrowland... Seems to me some sort of Tron Canopy detail would make a better entrance to Tomorrowland than those ridiculous rocks and the stupid purple wall.
