Tomorrowland


As much as I love the other "lands", there is something about the blend of science fiction and world's fair futurism that makes the old Tomorrowland my favorite. Space travel may become an everyday reality, but I doubt it will be in rockets as stylishly cool as the Rocket to the Moon.

You can see an Autopia car on display, and the WenMac Flight Circle is sort of visible in front of the rocket. I think that some of the Hobbyland souvenir stands are over to the right, there seems to be a lot of people checking out all the neat merchandise. The signage, light fixtures and decor all evoke an optimistic dream of the future that the Tomorrowland of 2006 is lacking.
