“When planning, Imagineers wanted to open up the space and improve access into the land. However, it was important to maintain its overall complexion—with trees and beautiful planters. As shown in this rendering, guests will soon be entering Tomorrowland on a widened pathway lined with elliptical planters that are filled with swirls of colorful flowers.”
The future pays homage to Tomorrowland entrances of yesterday as Disney Imagineer, Kim Irvine mentioned that “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.”
The “new” Tomorrowland debuted in 1967, as it was called WED at the time under Walt Disney with his staff of Imagineers envisioned a land as a “world on the move”. Back in the early days of Disneyland as, futuristic vehicles zooming around and the Googie architecture that had become representative of the Space Age. Today’s Imagineers are creating Space Age-inspired spires, which will flank the entrance.
