Before you guys start lookin' for the rope to lynch me with, let me present my case . A popular topic lately has been the theming issues with Nemo, BLAB, and the recent Pirate's Lair "refurb". All should know by now my feelings regarding these attractions, so I will spare you all the horror of having to read my criticisms yet again .
The PeopleMover: a relaxing, full-circle scenic tour of Tomorrowland, inside and out.
Rocket Rods: A frenetic stop and go race around Tomorrowland, inside and out.
"IncrediPods" are the current front-runners to be the next heir apparent to the touring tracks of the original PM. The question I pose is simple, but complex: does it deserve a chance to "work"?
Personally I would rather see the PM tracks done away with altogether than have another TL attraction stray further from the spirit of innovation and discovery that TL used to embody. Before you decide, I would ask you read this well-crafted, and thoughtful post submitted in another thread:
"This was what Walt read when Tomorrowland was opened:
A vista into a world of wondrous of ideas signifying manís achievement a step into the future with predictions of constructive things to come.
Tomorrow offers new frontiers in science, adventure and ideals. The atomic age, the challenge of outer space and the hope for a peaceful, unified word.
The first sentence to me would be somewhat of a mission statement as to what Tomorrowland should have in it, at least in my opinion." --Cindersgirl
Is this new PM incarnation going to need more alibis (like its more recent neighbors) in order to explain its inclusion in TL? Are we going to shrug our shoulders and say, "Well, at least there is something up there..."? Or do we want, and deserve to get, more than that?
Is Tomorrowland used to performing thematic gymnastics in order to justify its attractions? For sure (i.e. Autopia, America Sings, BLAB, Finding Nemo, etc.). Does this mean it has to become a TL Tradition? Your thoughts?
