Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.

Most of the attention in Tomorrowland is on the upcoming TRON: Lightcycle Run roller coaster (opening April 4th), but a nearby gift shop is also getting some work done.


The gift shop at the end of Space Mountain (called Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.) is being refurbished now. Disney hasn’t announced a reopening date for this shop yet.

This little snack kiosk near Test Track has been through a few different renovations. We previously saw a new sign installed that said “Refreshment Station,” but recently we noticed that the sign has been removed.
