    Astro Orbitor bronze days numbered?

    The Astro Orbitor's queue rails are being repainted with a silver color scheme... could the Astro Orbitor be next?

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    That will help it blend into the current color scheme a little more. Hopefully, Disney hasn't abandoned the idea of putting the rocket jets back up high where they belong.

    I'm with Tom Chaney, put it back where it belongs. But blending the colors would be nice for a starter.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Same here. I have never been on the Astro Orbiters since they put them down to Dumbo's level. There's no point in painting it silver. Just close the ride down and throw it back up where it belongs.

    What you just stated is soooo much easier said than done. The old high platform cannot even support an Orbiter's weight. And they opened new shops under the platform, so I really doubt they will ever put it back up.

    Did they change it when they took down the original rockets? I'm not literally saying put what they have now back up there, more like bring back the old rockets, those would work in the new direction Tomorrowland is headed to with the silver & white. The ones at ground level just look too clunky IMO.

    I'd imagine that they're making things work for now as much as they can with color scheme...things won't truly be revamped and fixed until the PeopleMover track plans go under way. Then they can do everything at the same time in an efficient manner.

    Bring back the rockets. Up high, the Rocket Jets were a great version of "Dumbo" for an older crowd!!!

    I think I have been on the Astro Orbitor once.

    Re: Astro Orbitor bronze days numbered?

    I seem to recall back when MC first started that some posted a photo of what Astro-Orbiter would like if painted silver. It was pretty cool. Still, I would much rather have the Rockets be placed up high where they belong. Hopefully this is just a temporary band-aid, if you will, for the current state of TL.
