New look coming to the main walkway in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom

Tomorrowland concrete work - May 20 2021
Posted: Friday May 21, 2021 11:05am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The slow-paced project that began in early 2018 to update Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom is now shifting to the concrete design on the main walkway into the land from the hub.

The existing cog design looks like it is being removed in favor of a more basic design.

Large areas of the concrete have now been cut and sectioned in preparation for removal.

New concrete is already in place in some small sections near to Buzz Lightyear Spaceranger Spin.

While yes the show has been closed for a while, everything is still in there. I just want anything new to finally take its place.

Y'know, if they move the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor to Hollywood Studios, I think they could easily just put the Stitch Encounter interactive show they have at Hong Kong Disneyland in its spot.

It has been. It’s just empty now.

I just want SGE put out of its misery man. :(

Hot take - Laugh Floor is in much more need of a replacement than Buzz, and Buzz is pretty bad at this point (mostly because a lot of the guns or spinning levers barely function).

I also don't know if Dreamflight happens in Tomorrowland if the previous aviation themed attraction sponsored by an airline (If You Had Wings) hadn't come before it. Also, hot take: Dreamflight was way better than If You Had Wings...fight me

The IP fits EPCOT better I think as the movie and series both touched on S.T.E.M. education. A good rubric for any would-be edutainment attraction. The superhero aspect is just a bonus. So long as it isn't a cloned spinner, the IP would fit well. Equally, exploring the sciences and "bots" aspect also works in Tomorrowland. For an attraction however, I'd prefer it take the place of Laugh Floor... hypothetical armchair.

The RCA and GE lounges say hi.

It can borrow the stinging effect from It's Tough to Be a Bug to simulate a shot. The crowd squeals with utter joy when that happens!!

It'd be as horrifying as SGE! Perfect!!!

Although I think the IP could work in Epcot, I think Big Hero 6 could work well for the SGE theatres if they're set on keeping the theatre-in-the-round setup. An animatronic Baymax in the middle who tests a variety of medical abilities as special effects (scanner, sprayer, etc) and starts malfunctioning to show his super hero abilities as special effects. Then throw an M&G in the Merchant of Venus space.

Buzz is fine where he is, but the ride should have an update, a refurbished queue and some new settings. Freshen it up... Monsters should be moved to DHS... it is a better fit there. Stitch should have moved into the People Mover show scenes causing havoc in the Transport system of Tomorrowland...and while they are at it they could add some show scenes in the inky blackness of Space Mountain. They really need to figure out what to do with both the defunct SGE and MILF Crerate some sort of futuristic 2 part adventure?...SOMETHING......

With a second ride involving the same gimmick.
