News Tomorrowland love

That is one lackluster entrance to Tomorrowland... They really should have addressed this. It looks sad.
Everything that's wrong with it is a holdover from '94. If they can undo the raygun stuff in the Stitch area, finish the supports, and restore some greenery to the area, I think it'll look great. I wish they could revert the rocks to waterfalls, but that seems a bit much to hope for.

It's a completely new iteration... While I LOVED the giant Gull-wing Waterfalls, they could be smaller units flanking the walkway but tall enough to look monumental... Back to that mid-mod aesthetic. Almost anything would be an upgrade to the current look of things... And now it is too late to actually do something for the 50th. Very sad.

Things like this always interest me and I want to know where the idea comes from and who makes it happen. Like where did they find these trees? Obviously they were specially grown/acquired. Who decided they were needed and in that location? Did a tomorrowland manager request them? Did horticulture just decide Tomorrowlands getting them? Is there a tree manager that determines when and where trees are needed? Can he or she find some for the backside of France and near the skyliner queues?

One of the coolest things I learned (from a vlog!) is that in Seuss Landing, everything is curved/no straight lines, including the trees! They brought in palm trees that were bent from hurricanes and planted them all over Seuss Landing!

(please don't tell me this isn't true...)

I think Tomorrowland will be the one area that continues to be worked on throughout the 50th. They're obviously racing to "finish" every other section, but since Tron is already delayed beyond the start of the celebration, I think they're just accepting that one land will have to remain a work in progress. Honestly, construction on a Stitch replacement or at least a "coming soon" wall would be less depressing than the empty building and could build excitement for future trips with all the folks passing through the park.

What better way to celebrate the opening of MK than by having TL be in a kind of embarrassing unfinished state.

It is 100 percent true. They were brought in from Hurricane Andrew's Aftermath areas.

Hearing reports that the entrance rocks will be removed at some point. I’ll be incredibly happy when that happens.
If true,
god is real GIF

Agreed, that would be so nice. The water could be projection mapped and morph into code or circuit boards, etc., eliminating the wet pavement argument.
Not only that, but they have since solved that problem in how to do beautifully patterned water effects with extremely minimal splashing... The tech is there so that now they could make those giant Gull Wing Waterfalls work perfectly...and create a monumental and engaging entrance into Tomorrowland.

Honestly just some waterfall glass and lighting would do the trick. It doesn't need to be an actual water feature.

Worst thing they ever did was paint those rocks that hideous blue. The real rock look at least looked natural and added another splash of colour that was not out of place.
I wholly disagree. That puke orange was absolutely terrible and did not look natural to me. The metallic blue kind of gives me crystal or ore vibes. It also fits the overall color scheme of the current Tomorrowland much better and compliments the other colors visible in the hub.

I appreciate where you're coming from, but logistically this wouldn't work well. Just imagine how often the glass would need cleaned and how difficult it would be to clean. It would end up looking pretty bad most of the time. Also, I prefer the kinetics of moving water to lighting that would only show up at night.
