I was trying to figure out what year the pics were from. I love guessing, so i am going to! I think the one with all the people eating inside is most likely somewhere between '88-'91, or maybe even '92.

yeah, late 80's / early 90's looking at the people in the first pic...
guy in the 3rd pic looks like he's been watching over that cart as a favor for someone on a 45 min bathroom run... and he's about to walk

Yeah, looks like the late 80s to me. Lots of memories of those exact colors down there when i was a kid.

is that earth?
i don't see one single nose in a phone, but i do see a mention of 'telephones' on an arrow sign - was that in communicore? an exhibit of a television phone or something like skype?

in unrelated news...
got a year on these, by chance?

Yeah, the design appears to be way earlier eighties, even seventies, but the clothes/dress seems to be later eighties, even nineties.

They’re Tomorrowland mid 1970s. By the 80s the colour palette had changed.

thanks, martin.

wow - never would have guessed mid-70's based on the people alone...
didn't make it to the 80's, huh? odd - memory was connecting dots that weren't there.

Wow, I was way off about the photo timeline. I think the kid with the backwards cap probably threw me off somewhat since that wasn't really popular until the mid 80's. I am surprised hardly any males in the pic have big beards or moustaches or longer hair or sideburns. LOL I am studying this pic more and more now and am convinced it is closer to 1980 or 1981 looking at the hairstyles and colors (not the chairs or walls, the clothes people are wearing).

Did you know your dad was in Dodgeball?

Sorry, the mustache made it too hard to pass up.

It's odd not seeing a pool surrounded by fences.

Mutton chops were the coolest. They were the real-deal, unlike the phony hipster bearded idiots you see today. lol
FWIW, I think they came off shortly thereafter this trip. I'm pretty sure this is summer of 79 or 80.

Has there been anymore construction related work for the tron coaster? I know someone posted that there were a few walls up a while back. Is there anything else started? is anything blocked off from the train?
