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.

Someone through out an Arcade based unifying theme. I didn't hate it. Alternatively, I think just leaning into Futurism in IP is a much easier theme to satisfy. They just can't continue to muddle futurism with things like Monster's Inc.

It doesn't seem like Disney knows what they're doing anymore with Tomorrowland. They should have went all the way with the alien theme. It would have been better than this rainbow explosion look.

BREAKING: Bitter Disney "fanboy" is butt-hurt about official Disney Parks Blog calling out "fansite" for rampant spread of baseless rumors

Indeed. They do a good job at posting a lot of pictures, but that's the only reason to look at anything on there.

No, it's a site that has news today about Disney.

Quick q: is the "site that shall not be named" MogBlickey? And if so...why, people share their links in comments all the time.

The site that shall not be named has photos and is reporting that most (or all) the trees in Tomorrowland's hub have been replaced with much smaller trees.

Fair points regarding the surrounding area Liege:Bilbao Personally, I don't see the inspiration, and perhaps that's what made me reply. If they were perhaps inspired by the Liege station, I'd guess they had been partaking in some heady substances. As others have noted, the canopy style utilized by Tron is not novel. Disney currently seems more inclined to appropriate architectural styles and forms, whereas they used to define them.

They actually just refreshed the paint on this, so I'd imagine they plan to leave it in place at least through the 50th anniversary.

Hi everyone, reading this post I reallize that in the retheming Disney will probably remove the Coke stand that you can see in tomorowland, if anyone goes please take some pictures for me. I am a big Coca-Cola and Disney fan, and Tomorowland was, is and probably will be one of the themes I like more in WDW. So please if anybody goes or has pictures of the coke stand please upload them here or send them to me. Thanks! BTW I mean the cool ship and the cool scanner. I love the details and the crates behind it. Also love the coke logo in "tomorowland" langugage. Wish they sold a bottle with that logo!
