EEEEEEEEEEEK! If only we could go back in time and keep THAT from happening!

By the way, thank you for the additional information on "Star Wars Days" at Disneyland. I've gone back and corrected my post!

Looking at this image, it indeed reminds me that Tomorrowland was dated and a little too tired... it needed an update by this time, but I've never really liked the result. I miss the Mary Blair murals and I still to this day feel like the Circle Vision style of presentation is a special thrill. Buzz is a fun attraction and the kids really flock to it, but I would have preferred an "also" to an "or". Putting Buzz into the old Mission to Mars would have been a better decision compared to a large often underused food court.

Redesigning Tomorrowland would be a challenge even in the best of circumstances, but having lost the "world on the go- Go, go Goodyear" of the Peoplemover running around has been a bane of this section of the park. Also, as much as I love the architecture of the Orbitron, I preferred the original Rocket Jets location SO MUCH more. Having it at the entrance of Tomorrowland has made it seem more like SciFi land.
