So as we all know, Tomorrowland is a "problem" area in Disneyland that seems to be a priority on the list for the company in terms of fixing. I personally have a couple of ideas as to what they can do to make it seem sleek and modern, but not leaving the potential for it to be dated. It also can help use under-utilizied areas and clear some congestion.
1. Get rid of that water-covered germ ball and park in the middle. As of now, I'm not sure as to what should go there, but honestly this can go as well as the planters to allow for more open space in Tomorrowland so the walkways feel less crowded.
2. For the next section, I will be permantely closing the oft-empty Magic Eye Theatre (where "Captain EO Tribute" is shown) and both levels of the Starcade. It will involve demolishing the theatre to create a new queue for Space Mountain, with new ramps and elevators to connect the new queue to where the indoor part of the queue roughly begins. The second level of the Starcade plus that outdoor, second-level Space Mountain queue will become the main show building for a new ride that will involve the People Mover track. The queue will be fully enclosed and feature some NextGen interactivity.
3. I think a cool, simple new ride to fill the People Mover track is key. It might not need a crazy-intense story line, but a working name that I have is TomorrowLanding. In case you can't tell, I have no story line, but I think kinectic energy with carts moving along the track will bring so much life and energy to the park. It would involve moving past dioramas, animatronics, lasers, holograms and projections, and I was thinking a 2012-technology version of a starfield (without disco balls!) even if it is too similar to Space Mountain. The queue and loading area would be the first level of the Starcade.
4. Finally, Innoventions. While I know a Stark Expo is an idea being floated around, I am in favor of a Wall-E dark ride with some thrill elements... maybe a launch in to outer space and some speeding around as Wall-E trys to dodge incoming traffic. It wouldn't be overly thrilling, but still an exciting dark ride for the whole family. I know for a fact that I think the building should be covered in LED lighting with beautiful, celestial, and modern images. I'd love for other buildings, such as the Star Trader, Astro Blaster, Redd Rockets, and new TomorrowLanding buildings to be covered with LED lights and video screens. The rest of the buildings would feature smooth wall treatments and be painted silver, black, and blue - none of this Stucco stuff!
