    No, at the end of the ride when you've collected all of you points from shooting your targets, there's a sign on the wall that tells you your rank judging from the amount of points you got. Its simply a friendley competition between family members and a goal to get higher points on the next ride.

    Does anyone really think any of this will happen ??

    At least, will it be done "right". Don't fool yourselves - TDA will over-manage, WDI will over-think, and contractors will under-perform.

    Face it, the "Magic" is gone forever. Replaced by Modern Management and Litigation Avoidance. Disneyland "was", but will never "be" again.

    Sad, but true....

    Is this Tomorrowland re-paint really true or is it just a rumor?

    Oh, come on! The magic is not gone forever. Things will get better. They always do!

    Anyway, I guess Buzz would be a logical place to start for the new tomorrowland paint scheme, because it looks really bad with Green and blue meets gold and brown. Hopfully once buzz is done, they'll start on Star Tours next!

    Well, it depends on if you believe the source (a member of Team Anaheim Disney) of this information or not?

    Ok, so are they going to re-paint Tommorrowland BACK to how it used to be pre-98? Will we see the return of the white's, and blues from Walt's world on the move? Or will they be different?

    There's a problem inherent between keeping Tomorrowland a view into the future...no matter what you do, it's going to eventually look dated.

    Not to mention "What does Space Mountain really have to do with the future?"

    The trick is to find new attractions that have that wink-and-a-nod towards what people's view of the future used to be. So we think of the ways we thought it was going to be (sort of like COP), and generate new rides from there.

    Personally, I'd love to see them buy licensing to do an attraction based on Austin Powers--with all those obviously fake gadgets from the future in Dr. Evil's lair. Not to mention the "magma" (moves fingers), and AA sharks with laser beams on their heads.

    Bwah-hah-hah-hah-hah...

    Here's hoping for a shag-tastic neon pink-and-chartreuse color scheme.

    I perfer Sci Fi Land

    what they have in WDW isn't dated, Star Wars (the origional movies) isn't dated, just take a nice imaginative fantasy type outlook to the Tomorrowland theme (retro is too much of a hit and miss for Tomorrowland)


    and also sometimes constant rebuilding is good because that means you'll always have something to advertise

    The thing about Disneyland's Tomorrowland, the Old Tomorrowland (Tomorrowland '67) is WAY more realistic/futurisitic then the current tomorrowland. That tomorowland depicted a world on the move, while the current tomorrowland predicts a future where: There are no more rides in a theme park/ there will be no new forms of transportation in the future

    Yes, but that means you're always building expensive attractions, and having to prove ROI on each and every one, and the heavy hand of Wall Street is such that the organization trends towards ennui, and doesn't bother doing anything at all.

    Wait, I think we're already there. Although there is a fine line between building an attraction which will be a classic for the ages and something we all fervently wish had never happened in the first place.

    well here's the deal, a fantasy type sci fi look on tomorrow is bound to last at least a decade if not longer

    Star Tours and Space Mountain arn't going anywere anytime soon they can still remain popular for a long time to come (because their themes are space port/adventure their style is unique to themselves, if you make the rest of the land match this and add a few neat features like that marble ball then your on the right track)

    WDW's Spaceport style tomorrowland will probably still be scene as futuristic by the end of this decade even

    the silver and the blue have seemingly always been part of people view of the future and if you simply use it in a non literal (aka uber realistic actualy trying to determin what will happen) fashion it will last much longer

    I just hate retro bronze and rust, everyone knows people back then were dumb, I swear clunky robots are just dumb

    lets take a nice fantasy look it won't look like they gave up and it'll last just as long
