“Tomorrowland…a vista into a world of wondrous ideas, signifying man’s achievements… a step into the future with predictions of constructive things to come. Tomorrow offers new frontiers in science, adventure and ideals… the challenge of outer space, and the hope of a peaceful and unified world.” – Walt Disney
Spinning rocket ships greet you at the entrance to Tomorrowland, a continually changing and evolving glimpse into the future. Of all the “lands” in the park Tomorrowland has probably changed the most over the years as technology has advanced and much that used to seem like part of the future suddenly became part of the present.
Whether you’re helping Buzz Lightyear defend the galaxy, soaring through the stars on Space Mountain, or boarding a Star Tours spaceship to a galaxy far, far away, these futuristic experiences are sure to create some timeless memories.
Astro Orbitor – Fly high above Tomorrowland in your own spacecraft.
Autopia – A rite of passage for many kids as they get to drive their own car around the track – including an off-road portion.
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters – It’s all up to you: defeat Zurg and save the galaxy!
Disneyland Railroad, Tomorrowland Station – Located between the Autopia and Innoventions, next stop is Main Street station via the Grand Canyon and Primeval World dioramas.
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage – Board a submarine for an undersea voyage to a new deep-water volcano, with views of beautiful coral reefs along the way – and some surprising encounters with Nemo and the rest of the Finding Nemo gang.
Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple – Young Padawans receive light saber training from Jedi Masters. Kids must be 4-12 years of age, and must sign up in advance at the registration kiosk.
Space Mountain – Blast through space on this high-speed, cosmic roller-coaster adventure.
Star Tours – Motion simulator that transports you to destinations from the popular Star Wars movies.
Star Wars Launch Bay – Exhibit of props and costumes from “The Force Awakens”, meet and greet with Star Wars characters.
Tomorrowland Monorail Station – Ride the Disneyland monorail to the Downtown Disney monorail station.
The main entrance to Tomorrowland can get quite congested since the Astro Orbitor is at ground level right at the entrance, and the entrances to Star Tours and Buzz Lightyear are nearby. It’s often easier to get into Tomorrowland by taking the path from the hub towards Pixie Hollow, and then going around the right side of the Matterhorn.
The Tomorrowland Train Station can be a little hard to find – take the path between the Star Wars Launch Bay and the Autopia.
Galactic Grill – Star Wars-inspired burgers, sandwiches, and snacks
Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port – Pizza, pasta, and salads.
Little Green Men Store Command — Disney pins and Toy Story merchandise.
The Star Trader – Star Wars merchandise, Disney plush, hats, and other souvenirs.
Tomorrow Landing – Star Wars and Avengers merchandise.
Winner’s Circle – Disney character hats.
Many of the plants growing in the landscaping areas of Tomorrowland are edible fruits and vegetables, like cabbage, strawberries, parsley, and orange trees.
Tomorrowland was extensively rehabbed in 1997 and “reopened” in May 1998. Among the changes: the Astro Orbitor was relocated to ground level at the entrance to Tomorrowland – no longer requiring an elevator ride to the loading area.
The rocket ship over the drink stand in front of Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port is the Moonliner from the original Rocket to the Moon attraction.
Tomorrowland’s attractions have changed greatly over the years. Some of the previous attractions are: Rocket to the Moon, Flying Saucers, House of the Future, Adventure Thru Inner Space, Rocket Rods, and America Sings.
