If you paint it... they just might come and shell out $60 per person. Still, Tommorowland looks great, and being that I was born after the Tommorowland Golden Age of the Peoplemover and CoP and such, I'm glad to see things coming back, and that goes for the whole park.
New Paint, re-built e-ticket, New D-ticket, new symbol. Sure, its all the 50th has got. But Matt Ouimet has begun to SaveDisneyland. The subs are comin back, all we need is something on those peoplemover tracks, something in the sky(way), and the rockets back on the peoplemover platform. THEN were good
I think they should take a cue from the Small World Clock and take all of the old AA's from T'land attractions and parade them around the track every quarter hour. All the AA's from Carousel, the eyeball from Inner Space, Captain EO characters, KAP the Kaiser aluiminum pig and more. Maybe put them in Peoplemovers and Rocket Rods! And the old 55 T'land World Clock chimes and the TWA Rocket simulates a blast off. Back the the future every hour!!!
I'm not that serious.

Man ModHatter. That picture up there really makes me miss the old Tomorrowland.
One thing they do better now is grow nicer looking palm trees.
Yeah, being surrounded by neighbors with palm trees, I always thought they were a high-maintennance, and rather unattractive choice of plant for Tomorrowland. I'd like to think that there was some happy medium between that and the Montana Future. Maybe some Ficus Trees, something you can walk under, provides a lot of shade which will be important to energy efficient city and suburban planning, and can be used to create some basic shapes so that the park visitors know that this particular tree was a conscious choice, a deliberately cultivated thing like you might find on Epcot's Livin' with the Land, not just another Anaheim Orange tree that just kind of showed up near the Tomorrowland Terrace because the designers ran out of ideas.
Meanwhile, not only do I love the flower design, but the fact that it goes with the yellow PeopleMovers above. So much of that Tomorrowland was a blank white canvas, but you'd never know it from all the color of the vehicles and the plants.
Lesson for Disney? Keep doing what they're doing, and return some of the simplicity to Tomorrowland design. It's so much easier to hang a few new pictures than it is to repaint the whole room.
