Disneyland's Tomorrowland

As I've indicated here numerous times in the past, Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland is my favorite land in any of the parks. While the current incarnation of Florida's Tomorrowland is far from stellar, I still love it.


Needless to say, I found the most disappointing land in Disneyland to be Tomorrowland. I knew almost from the beginning that it would disappoint, when I saw this small sign and some little rock formations rather than the long walkway leading through the futuristic archway and Avenue of the Planets. The architecture was not as good, the lines not as fluid, and the key attractions inferior to those of Magic Kingdom. To be fair, Space Mountain was very cool, and very different, from Florida's, but to me, the land left something to be desired. I don't expect the same attractions between the coasts (quite the contrary, actually), but there were no big “time killers” that really made me want to soak in the ambiance of Tomorrowland like Florida's TTA or even the Carousel of Progress, which we find pulling us to Tomorrowland frequently to avoid the crowds.


Adding to that, the night I chose to photograph Tomorrowland, we were a bit pre-occupied, and I was rusty, resulting in mostly subpar images. I think when we next visit if I'm able to “get in the zone” shooting in Tomorrowland, my opinion of it might be higher.


Don't get too excited about this “victory,” Florida fans. Adventureland, Fantasyland, and New Orleans Square absolutely trounce the respective lands in Florida's Magic Kingdom.
