Tomorrowland Transit Authority

Two of my favorite rides in Walt Disney World, TTA and Space Mountain, will be closed for a good portion of the summer. While it will be unfortunate to miss them on our potential summer trip, I am glad these refurbishments are finally happening.


I just hope there actually is a refurbishment to the TTA, which could use something done to the many blank spaces throughout the attraction (even if it's only fake Tomorrowland advertisements--something along the lines of the current hairdresser ad). However, I'm concerned that the supposed refurbishment is only a liability closure (since it would be a liability to run guests through the Space Mountain construction zone).


Thanks for the comments and favorites, everyone! This picture made it to #244 in Explore for February 5, 2009!

    As much as I LOVE the TTA, I agree, it could use some improvements...

    This is an outstanding photo, showcasing all the neon lights of my favorite land in the Magic Kingdom!

    Such a nice shot
  • Jeff Bergman PRO 6y

    Fantastic shot and colours! I really like how you were able to include so much of the Ave of Planets in the backgound. I can't even imagine going to WDW and not riding these two attractions but SM in particular does need the rehab. I have to agree with you and Joe that the TTA could also use some improvements as well: some clean up and clever advertisements would be very welcomed.

    Great colors! Tomorrowland at night is such a colorful place!
  • Cory Disbrow 6y

    Awesome shot! Makes me feel like I'm there, and definitely makes me wanna go back.

  • dawnzy58 PRO 6y

    Love all the neon, fantastic shot! I think the closing of these two rides is why we decided on a March trip rather than May :)
  • Disney Fanatic PRO 6y

    Your party from Saturn called. Please give him a 'ring'
  • Eugene1959 PRO 6y

    I like the colors. Great shot.
  • Matt Pasant PRO 6y

    10/10... I try to give constructive feedback and I can not... I just can't. Not with pictures like this.

    It is perfect. In particular, I like how the arrow sign is also pointing out Tomorrowland behind.
  • Ray PRO 6y

    One of our favorite rides to sit back and relax during the summer!

    ^Matt, it's definitely not a 10/10. No matter what I did, I couldn't rescue the blown highlights on the Buzz sign. I recovered a lot in the MILF sign, but I just couldn't get it all back in Buzz. Next time I'm self-bracketing and doing all my night shots HDR, I think.
  • Abby Lanes 6y

    Gorgeous. You handled the light very well.
  • {kidnurse} 6y the lights and colors
