Walt Disney World today installed a new marquee for the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland.
With two sweeping, minimalist white arches meeting in a circle atop the entrance to the land, the new sign evokes the Googie architecture of the Pereira & Luckman/Paul Williams Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport.
Walt Disney Imagineering designed an interior overhaul of that building in the 1990s, so WDI is well familiar with that structure. This installation in the Magic Kingdom provide the latest example of WDI installing at the Walt Disney World Resort designs inspired by famous sights in the Los Angeles area that aren't meant just to reproduce an LA-area sight, following the CA-110 tunnel entrance to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
Meanwhile, back in the real Southern California, work continues on the new entrance to Disneyland's Tomorrowland, following the removal of the 1990s-era rocks as part of the Project Stardust park renovation program.Tweet
