    Tomorrowland Renovation

    Originally it was reported that announcements would be this month. That didn't happen. So what's the current state of this rumor? Are plans being consider on an alternative tomorrowland idea? Are announcements near? Does anyone have any information to report?

    I heard they are going to expand the DVC booth, add some more Outdoor Vending Carts and replace Captain EO with a dancing Ewok show.

    All Ewoks, all the time. They are hiring right now if you know any 8-year olds who can fit in the Ewok costume. The pay isn't that great ($0.35 above minimum wage) and they get beat up all the time by park guests, but there's no homework!

    Re: Tomorrowland Renovation

    I think Space Mountain would work with a Star Wars theme. It really could be an escape pod blasting out of a Star Wars ship, or some kind of a Star Wars transporation ship taking you to another space station or something.

    I think Space Mountain is better as a stand alone away from the Star Wars theme.

    I totally agree with you there. I think that redoing Tomorrowland into a Star Wars land is a very bad idea.

    Just keep your fingers crossed they are reconsidering "Star Warzing" Tomorrowland to death ... and do a proper renovation in the future ... that involves a world of Tomorrow that is for us Earthlings .. and not of a past for a humanoid society in a galaxy far, far away!
    MY SIGNATURE:
    Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

    Re: Tomorrowland Renovation

    If they put back the 67 version I would be ecstatic and it would be a million times better than it is now but thats not going to happen!

    Failing that:

    put back some kind of people mover
    move the rockets or orbitron back up high where it used to be
    replace autopia cars with electric ones that can self drive if you choose and redo whole area as a scaled futuristic town that is all really solar powered that you drive thru
    put in some kind of futuristic audio animatronic showride in the carousel
    put back in some kind of travel in to space ride
    scrap buzz and put anything else in there.....
    put in a VR gallery where you can revisit lost attractions like Adventure thru Innerspace via high res Virtual REality

    no more star wars stuff save that for a 3rd gate here somewhere, (possibly gut toontown for a star wars area or better yet gut all of DCA and make it star wars world.)

    As it turns out, there may not be much difference (as Earthlings are concerned) between the Death Star and Monsanto's House of the Future. The latter turned out to be too expensive for Earthling families. And, the Death Star would require the wealth of the entire planet to build, many times over.

    Also, much like the Death Star, you can destroy the House of the Future by aiming a photon torpedo into a small exhaust port.
