This is more a philosophical question then anything else. What is Tomorrow? It's a simple question. Is it a bright, shiny future full of optimism? Is it a balanced future showing what is possible, and what has already been done? Is it cautionary, showing us the dangers of the path we are currently on? I ask this because every time I walk through Tomorrowland I think of a Disneyland version of a yard sale. It's full of amazing little treasures, some new, others antiques. All of them are a collective hodge podge of past memories and past experiences. Some items were cutting edge technology, now severely outdated. Others were popular items at the time but have fallen out of style since.
On this forum you can read amazing concepts. People have amazingly vivid imaginations, creative talents that I feel are honestly wasted. They envision a variety of futures. Some see Tomorrowland as a spaceport, or a colonized ruin on an alien planet. Some feel it is the distant future, while others think it should show the cutting edge of today. In fact the only two things many agree on are that Tomorrowland today isn't presented well, and that it needs a unified theme. Again I ask... what is tomorrow?
In only a few short years I have seen a beloved attraction dismantled and it's tracks laid bare. Then revived in a modern speedy form, only to be abandoned and left lifeless again. I have watched as once proud rockets were reduced to the status of a glorified carnival ride. I have even watched as the high tech became so low tech that a standard electronics store carries better equipment.
I never knew the House of the Future. I have only read stories about it, and the many designs it inspired. Looking around I can't help but think that the same faces and hands of designers today, were the faces and hands of kids pressed against the displays of yesterday. Is Tomorrowland to become Tomorrow, or is it to be left neglected, discarded, and abused as it is Today?
