Disneyland has released a concept image for the new entrance to Tomorrowland that the park has been working on for the past few months.
The new entrance replaces the "French fry" rock formation that Disney installed as part of the late 1990s Tomorrowland renovation - a reimagining of the land that Disney now has pretty much entirely abandoned.
The one change that has survived, however, is the placement of the Astro Orbitor at the land's entrance, which remains in the new concept art... as we expected since Disney just completed a rebuild of the spinner ride, preserving its 1990s-design look.
Colorful planters adorned with white spires that evoke the old-school Googie design of Tomorrowland will flank the entrance to the land when work is completed next year.
The new entrance also brings the "curb-less" design to the outside eastern side of Main Street around the Hub that Disneyland installed on the outside western side last year. Curbs remain on the interior of the Hub. The new Tomorrowland design also appears to expand the walkway space into and out of the land, easing the pinch point that the old French fry design had created.
Aesthetically? The image looks like a hodgepodge of design ideas to me, so I guess I will wait to see how it all comes together in person before saying anything more. But I curious to read others' reactions. The comments await.Tweet
