    Exclamation ROCKET JETS and SPACE MOUNTAIN spotted in "MEET THE ROBINSONS"! Screenshot included!

    I was watching a preview for Disney's new movie "Meet the Robinsons" on the Pirates 2 DVD when in the corner of my eye I spotted the Rocket Jets in a futuristic scene. I played it back, and the next time I noticed Space Mountain.



    These are cool references!

    That scene was actually forced into the movie by Disney's marketing team in the hopes that, should the movie turn out to be even moderatly sucessful, they could create a cheap Meet the robinsons ride in tomorrowland. The movie also featurs a hip punk rock version of "great big beautiful tomorrow".

    Pretty disgusting if you ask me. Although this was all done before the Pixar buyout so although that scene and the song will still be in the movie. I hope the synergy people have less control over future animated features.

    In this era of "synergy," where every division of Disney is supposed to help the profits of every other division, I am not surprised that the references to Tomorrowland are "forced" into the picture. Frankly, when I see those references, I think of OLD Tomorrowland. The one before 1998 when it was screwed up by Disney Management. That was when Tomorrowland really was about the future.

    I really want Meet the Robinsons to do well, but I don't want a ride in Tomorrowland from the movie. That would be just weird! Just bring back a Tomorrowland that really is about the future, a really cool future.

    Personally I think it's funny!

    Just because Disney takes a stab at itself it doesn't mean that a change is coming. Take Lester's Possum Park from A Goofy Movie for example. If anything we lost the attraction that it parodied soon after.

    The joke is that "Todayland" is located in what is considered our future.

    Where did this info come from? Everyone at WDFA that I have talked to said it was a joke they tossed about when this film was in pre-production that they kept because everyone loved it. This is really no different then putting it's a small world in Lion King as a tribute to the parks, but making fun of pop culture at the same time.

    yea for the most part , but when i was at WDW in October , i can tell you there is a world of difference between riding the astro orbiter on the ground at the entrance of tommorowland , and riding the rocket jets up high on the platform like they are meant to be ridden at WDW
