    Two Searchlights in Tomorrowland?

    Hey all, DM here again. So I just came back from a day at DL, and when nighttime came, I saw two searchlights in Tomorrowland. One above Buzz, and the other above Star Tours. What is their point or meaning?

    Re: Two Searchlights in Tomorrowland?

    Its to welcome you to the land of tomorrow where rides of the past gave way to rides of the worse. The people mover gave way to nothing. CoP and America Sings gave way to outdated consumer electronics show. An exploration of undersea life gave way to talking fish. Circle Vision gave way to a Space toy. Come see all the attractions that are worse then they once were.

    But on a serious note I have no idea. Do they have something to do with the TLT? I really have no idea why there would be spot lights. Maybe they realized that tomorrowland lacks so much kinetic energy that they were trying to bring a little bit of energy to the area?

    They are search lights. That's pretty much it. The only other thing I could think of would be to notify air traffic once it gets too close to the property, but even that is unlikely because the lights are very low powered and cannot be soon from too much of a distance.

    I am almost 100% sure they are for decoration. It just adds a "look at this, come over here and check this out" factor to an already clustered area.

    And don't forget that Adventure thru Inner Space gave way to a motion simulator based on a non-Disney film that takes place in the past, not Tomorrow. And that Mission to Mars gave way to pizza joint that sells a slice for $6.49 and a whole pizza for $31.99.

    The new searchlights are visible from DCA. Star Tours has had its own since the ride re-opened in May, but Buzz's was added recently. I also noticed that the neon lights around the Buzz spire have been changed out to match Star Tours' a bit better. The overall look is an improvement, but only a drop in the bucket compared to what the land as a whole needs.

    I agree, it adds some "Hey come look over here" to it.

    I don't quite understand how this post fits in the thread, however it's full of win, and absolutely hilarious.

    He/she was adding to my post about how the spot lights were to bring people into the former world of tomorrow to the land of worse.
