    Astro Orbiter Question

    So Tomorrowland is getting new paint, which looks amazing if i do say so myself. But the Astro Orbiter is still brown... Are they going to paint this too? I remember someone on this board making fake pictures of how it would look under the new scheme and it looked amazing. I hope they paint it.

    I have heard that the astro orbiter will stay the same, along with a few other landmarks. It sounds like the the new paint was thought up to blend with these.

    yes the same sources that predicted tomorrowland's new paint job have long stated that the orbiter and the observitron would keep the same paint scheme

    at least for now

    the orbiter might get some chages if they ever have time for a refurb because they have to dissasemble it anyways to get the spinning effects working correctly (they spinning effects broke due to budget cuts that botched their instulation)

    also there are some ride concepts being developed for the top of the rocket jets platform to replace the observatron as well as concepts for the peoplemover

    however we're unlikly to see many more changes once the painting is finished and the 50th starts

    I'd love to see the Astro Orbitor renovated to look more like the one at HK Disneyland.

    Ooo! Replace the Observatron? That'd be awesome seeing as how it doesn't move anymore, and you can't ride it...
