Tomorrowland paint changes
Posted: Thursday April 5, 2018 10:17am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new color scheme in the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland is well underway, with painting in progress at Carousel of Progress, the Laugh Floor and "The Purple Wall."

The Purple Wall has a new graphic overlay, but still retains a large flat purple section, which should please guests who like to grab a photo for social media.

Over at the Laugh Floor, the blue's of the TRON-like color palette are now on display.

And finally at Carousel of Progress, a new bold color palette is being applied.

I mean TECHNICALLY they could just keep it where it is and move some queue around to it maybe, or even rebuild Muppets to a new area and make the whole area more Star Wars. Then again I'm sure Disney is like "Well Disneyland's is across the park"

My armchair imagineering would involve moving Star Tours in Florida to SWGE. Would make room for a Muppets ride. That being said I don't know if Star Tours would fit in GE, it's certainly not a good thematic fit as of now.

I would doubt it. They seem to be using the Launch Bay in both resorts as an original trilogy area. Star Tours is still popular and I can’t seen them spending money on changing an attraction that is still performing well, especially in COVID times.

2034. Has there been any hint of all forms of Star Wars leaving Tomorrowland now that Disneyland and Walt Disney World have their own dedicated land/area for Star Wars?

The coaster would certainly wind up the trimmer for it in catastrophic cases.

Ironically, trim "breaks" can actually "break" coasters whlie they're "braking" them...

You know it's a joke because the company would never do something remotely proactive like retracting that ride right before the 50th anniversary of it. Just trim break it to death and hope it doesn't kill anybody while you're in management.

Do keep up.

Don't think DL has the space for it practically speaking. Unless they put a large portion of track underground. Hey, wait! 💡🎢
