The Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future."

Tomorrowland 1955-1967

The first Tomorrowland opened at Disneyland in 1955, with only a subset of its planned attractions due to budget cuts. Because the timeline in the first park's construction was rushed, Tomorrowland was the last land to be finished. Walt Disney was reluctant to turn his land into a corporate showcase, but when the time crunch came he accepted any offer he could. Monsanto Chemicals, American Motors, Richfield Oil, and Dutch Boy Paint were some of the many company showcases that were open in Tomorrowland in the first few years. Since the park was on a strict budget, one cost cutting idea was to use the sets from the 1954 movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a walk through attraction, which remained until 1966. For the first four years, most of Tomorrowland was generally open space and considered to be very corporate fueled. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

1957 brought Monsanto's "House of the Future," a plastic house with four wings cantilevered from a central plinth. This too had its precursors at World's Fairs, though in those cases they were simply homes with modern conveniences and aimed at housewives.

The addition of the ALWEG Monorail, Submarine Voyage, and Matterhorn (later changed to the Fantasyland realm), were so big it was televised as the second opening of Disneyland. New attractions came, as Walt Disney focused his efforts on the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. After the fair he turned his attention to a new Tomorrowland and his original Florida Project.

However, Walt Disney died in December of 1966, almost seven months before a vast new Tomorrowland opened. In 1967 the area was completely rebuilt with new rides and scenery. The original layout was demolished, and a new set of buildings was erected. The addition of the Carousel theater, Flight to the Moon building, the Adventure Thru Inner Space building, a new Circle-Vision building, and the PeopleMover/Rocket Jets platform, gave Tomorrowland the "World on the Move" theme. In time, Walt Disney's idea of a Space Port, opened as Space Mountain; Star Tours; and Magic-Eye Theater opened in places of older attractions.

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the planning phase of Michael Eisner's "Disney Decade" called for both American Tomorrowlands to receive makeovers. "Tomorrowland 2055" was slated to be completed by the late 1990s. The backstory of this renovation would be that with mysterious alien relics having been excavated in Disneyland, aliens were given the signal that Earth was now ready for intergalactic tourism and a century after Disneyland's opening, Disneyland would have become a popular destination for aliens visiting Earth. Within the new land were proposed attractions such as ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter; which later made its debut at the Magic Kingdom Park in Florida. The Timekeeper; the American version of Disneyland Paris' Le Visionarium. Plectu's Fantastic Intergalactic Revue; an audio-animatronic musical revue, and makeovers for classic attractions. However, due to financial difficulties surrounding the EuroDisney project, the plan was cut drastically and plans were shelved until 1997.

Tomorrowland 1998-Present

Disneyland's current Tomorrowland entrance

A new Tomorrowland opened in 1998, loosely based on Disneyland Paris' Discoveryland and a "retro-futurist" concept. In place of the slow-moving PeopleMover was the ill-fated Rocket Rods. Most of the rides remained the same, except for the removal of Circle-Vision 360, Captain EO, and Mission to Mars attraction theaters. The Rocket Jets were replaced by a similar attraction called the Astro Orbitor, placed at the entrance of the land, at ground level. The original Rocket Jets ride mechanism remained intact atop the Rocket Jets queue, converted into an unmanned show element dubbed the "Observatron". Two EPCOT attractions found their place in Tomorrowland, "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience!" & "Innoventions". The whole land, including Space Mountain, was painted in bronzes, golds, and dark browns, with emerald green trims on some attractions. Landscaping, with apparent vegetable plots being planted in some locations, made reference to "neo-agrarian" concepts.

The overhaul was unpopular among many fans, and its flagship new attraction, Rocket Rods, closed in September 2000 for financial and mechanical reasons. Many shops and restaurants opened, but few new attractions were built, in accordance with policies set by Paul Pressler and Cynthia Harriss mandating the expansion of retail space. The Rocket Rods building was left empty, paint peeled around the land, Space Mountain was in danger of track failure, and one by one, sponsors left Innoventions. The placement of the Astro-Orbitor led to congestion problems around the entrance of the area. The negative look of the land was commented by many Disney fans on online chat rooms and articles.

Many buildings would be redone, to match the new theme such as what used to be the Carousel of Progress. That would be a full-sized flying saucer that's reminiscent of the Mother Ship from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Were you to wander up that gangplank, you could sample the out-of-this-world entertainment presented at "Plectu's Fantastic Intergalactic Review.", an animatronic show. The aliens included this flying circus' three-armed ringmaster, P.T. Quantum as well as some giant swamp creature that -- as part of its performance -- rose out of the muck and sang operatic arias with its multiple mouths. The Carousel of Progress is an attraction located in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort, currently operating under the name, Walt Disneys Carousel of Progress. ... This article is about the film; for the classification, see Close encounter. ...


Overhead, glistening steel catwalks allow guests access to a whole new level of Tomorrowland shops and restaurants. On the ground, odd crystalline shapes that glowed brightly and weirdly shaped other-worldly plants would have given this side of the park a truly exotic feel.


Also, Tomorrowland 2055 would be where The [ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter]] originally planned to debut. An attraction that was then thought of as a franchise attraction, being at every Disneyland theme park. It would be situated in a building with a roof that appeared to be held up by statues of X.S, Tech employees.


"Tomorrowland 2055" would have become a real showplace at Disneyland. It could have set a whole new standard for theming and storytelling at the Anaheim park by taking guests on a fantastic trip to the future. But all of this was stopped by Michael Eisner. Animatronic-heavy shows like this are expensive to build and difficult to maintain. Plus Disney CEO Michael Eisner reportedly never really warmed to the whole "Plectu" idea. In meetings where the Walt Disney Imagineers would try and pitch him various different versions of the show, Eisner would allegedly say things like "A revolving theater full of singing aliens? How is that different from what they've got at Chuck E. Cheese? We need a better idea for this show." The current logo for Chuck E. Cheese Pizza. ...

For most of its history, this Tomorrowland's color scheme was predominantly white with soft blues. In 1994, using the just-completed Discoveryland at Disneyland Paris as its guide, Tomorrowland was renovated to resemble a galactic spaceport as it would have been envisioned by the science-fiction comic strips of the early 20th century, like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. In essence, Tomorrowland would represent "the future that never was."
