Next to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, the brand new wall has been revealed, and it appears that all the tiles are the right way this time! These newly redone walls immediately capture your eye as you step in, and they mirror the same design that’s on the Tomorrowland sign as you enter the land. While these are the same walls that have flanked the entrance of Tomorrowland for decades, they’ve received new holographic paint, as well as a bit of a refresh.
Although there are no sconce lights shining up to help illuminate the new walls like on the other side, this wall still catches our eye and the other bright lights in Tomorrowland help it glow in the meantime.
This is all a part of Project Stardust, which involves various enhancements all over Disneyland Resort that have ranged from overall beautification of the theme park to maximizing guest flow. This space-aged inspiration pays homage to Tomorrowland entrances of yesterday. Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine noted, “Tomorrowland has always represented a feeling of optimism. Imagineer John Hench originally designed the land with this notion of being wide open to innovative ideas and technology. When we started looking at the different Tomorrowland entrances through the years, both the 1955 and 1967 versions had a very optimistic appeal which resonated with us.”
What do you think of the finished product? Do you like the shiny, newly refreshed wall as you enter Tomorrowland?
