A New Tomorrowland for Disneyland & The Magic Kingdom

A New Tomorrowland for Disneyland & The Magic Kingdom

With D23 just days away many podcasts include ours have all called out the need for a new Tomorrowland–particularly at Disneyland, where it has idled poorly over the years. Since Disney desires new and revised attractions to be linked to intellectual properties they own, we first visit what those options are and their suitability for being in the parks. We also look at the overarching direction of the park–should it move in a manner suitable for animated light hearted fare or for adventure? Then we visit each themed land at both the Magic Kingdom and at Disneyland to discuss how attractions, and other offerings could be fitted out differently. We promise you that new ideas will be shared that haven’t been presented elsewhere. So join us as we imagine a new Tomorrowland for Disneyland and Walt Disney World!
