“A vista into a world of wondrous ideas, signifying man’s achievements … a step into the future, with predictions of constructive things to come. Tomorrow offers new frontiers in science, adventure, and ideals: the Atomic Age, the challenge of outer space, and the hope for a peaceful and unified world.” -Walt Disney. Dedication of Tomorrowland.
Walt Disney loved exploring and imagining what the future would hold. Exciting innovations and progress were at the core of his heart. Visiting Tomorrowland inside the Magic Kingdom makes us feel connected to Walt Disney. Be sure to try to visit the land both day and at night as a lot of our favorite attractions are better experienced when the sun goes down.
Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover
This iconic attraction is our first stop when entering Tomorrowland. It sets the tone of the entire area and makes you feel like this really may be the way people travel in the future. ;)
Did you know that Space Mountain is actually astronaut approved?!!
"With help from a NASA astronaut, Space Mountain opened in January 1975 at Magic Kingdom park. The idea originated with Walt Disney in the 1960s, but the technology did not exist to bring his vision to life. Later, when the attraction was given the green light, Mercury 9 and Gemini 5 astronaut Gordon Cooper joined the Space Mountain creative team as a consultant. He wanted to make sure that the attraction incorporated information gleaned during NASA’s early space missions and that the experience felt like actual space flight"- source disneyworld.com
Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress
A Disney Classic. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress was personally created by Walt Disney for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. It takes you into the history of progress from the 1920's to the "present" (1986 lol). With each era, you will learn how the technological advances of the day have made life more convenient. Definitely makes you appreciate the every day "little things" we so take for granted.
We guarantee you'll come out singing, "Theres' A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!!!"
Stiches Great Escape
An under- rated attraction that my kids still enjoy. It's lighthearted fun and a unique experience.
*Best to visit at night. It's actually waaay more thrilling than it appears from the ground below. Don't be ashamed if your rocket doesn't take the highest flight. Ha!
Buzz Light Year Space Ranger Spin
Such a fun attraction. Be sure to spin continuously to annoy your fellow space ranger LOL!
This attraction definitely tops Bruce's list as must do. There is nothing quite like this speedway and we know you will have a blast.
Monsters Inc Laugh Floor
The "Monsters" of this attraction discovered that laughter provides 10 times more energy to Monstropolis than a scream, so they put on quite an interactive show. It's hilariously fun and you just never know who they will pick in the audience to participate.
"Tomorrow is a heck of a thing to keep up with.” —Walt Disney
