Tomorrowland paint changes around Mickey's Star Traders - April 2019

The Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland is continuing to evolve its color palette, with more color now being added around the Mickey's Star Traders area.

Similar to the colors used on Carousel of Progress, the walls are getting splashes of color and some new paint-work designs.

Updates to the Tomorrowland look have been underway for a couple of years, with the end goal presumably to ready the land for its relaunch alongside the new Tron coaster in 2021.

I mean, the People Mover is still there (and supposedly getting some love) and the Astro Orbiter is in its rightful place. They get points for not pulling a stupid maneuver with those two things. *glares at DL*

That's very generous.

They got the original upper PM supports back and repainted CoP after it had the nasty oil wash a few years ago. Oh, we also got a P u R p L e W a L l for the I n F l U e N c E r S. That's it. I give it a 4/10 on the overhaul.

If only! That would have been nice. So many great ideas to be found in these 276 pages. I wish TDO could have done more. When did things go sideways? (Covid notwithstanding) Honestly, I'm not sure anything was really accomplished. Does it look better?

Imagine if the "Rocks" disappeared and there were giant spires with flowing information LEDs like tron...and their were two huge Gull Wing canopies in the shape of the former waterfalls...Also illuminated and ever changing... What if it was gleaming white and futuristic...and the pavement was imbedded with thousands of fiber optic effect making a living walkway...with color lighted strips leading to each attraction... What if Tomorrowland was creative and interactive and really beautiful again....

Imagine if those rocks had embedded LEDs constantly flowing “data” from bottom to top. Tron-like gridlines would look amazing.

They could always use the Stitch space for another show. What this new show could BE, I honestly don't know.

SGE becoming some sort of interactive and/or exhibit area actually makes sense since I imagine they don't have the guts or desire to revert back to its former incarnation. The limited space and inability to expand it in any direction without significant cost/impact doesn't really make it conducive for much else.

I wonder if SGE could end up being something similar in scale and design to what they did with the building next to RR (that was supposed to be for after hours cheerleader and dance team parties) that ended up being a Cars themed something (show/party/singalong whatever)
