Tomorrowland refurbishment - September 3 2020
Posted: Friday September 11, 2020 9:46am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The work on the new-look for Tomorrowland which began back in 2016 is continuing, with several significant changes over the past few weeks.

First, the scaffolding on the right-hand side as you enter the land is now down, giving us a look at the renovated plain white PeopleMover supports.

At the former Stitch's Great Escape entrance, all signage has now been removed.

Elsewhere, the supports are in various stages of renovation - some stripped to the steel, others down nearing completion.

Click the gallery for more of a look around the entirety of Tomorrowland.

The refurbishments are expected to be completed in time for opening of TRON Lightcycle Run in 2021.

Yeah! And why don't they have a robotic vacuum cleaner running around the living room floor with a cat taking a sweet ride:

The new TTA Peoplemover narration is the best update WDW has done in a while in terms of fully understanding the assignment. Whatever team worked on it needs to be assigned to more stuff!

Woah woah woah calm down there. They just got new clothes! You're just going to have to wait for any script changes.

Not very. But you first have to give a poop. And we all know Disney doesn't. The only chance you have of Disney doing this would be if apple and sony sponsor the attraction.

Absolutely, although I’m guessing they’d go with “smart phones” to avoid issues. This would also be easy, given the AI voice replication tech. They could even fill in new lines for Father, even though Jean Shepard is no longer with us.

To be fair, car phones were basically cell phones before cell phones.

How hard would it be to edit the audio so the daughter says "iphone" instead of "car phone" and grandpa says "4K discs" instead of "laserdiscs"? You wouldn't even need to change the movements of the robots.

How wild is it that we are now living in the future that CoP predicted in its last update from 1993? We have VR games/headsets at home, everyone has an HD or 4K TV, we have voice activated electronics. We may not have "car phones" but we can plug our phones into our cars.

Here’s an interesting thought. Given the AI-driven voice recreation technology used recently in various Star Wars properties and Top Gun, couldn’t Disney ensure that Jack Wagner continues to voice … anything? Assuming the rights could be worked out, of course.

That and upgrade it to a fully digital system, with visual messaging signs for ADA.

He’s still the voice of DCL when you call and the pre recorded ship announcements. It was lovely to hear last week

well I didnt mean that part I agree, please stand clear of the doors on the monorail should never be touched, but the rest needs to be changed so its not some boring robot voice. I thought they may have for the 50th but of course they did nothing. The previous narration before this current one was perfect but I forget his name. (monorail wise)
