The Astro Orbiter has been undergoing a major refurbishment over the last several weeks and is now finally starting to take its very first test spins after being completely ripped down and reassembled.

The teal is kind of retro. I like it. Maybe that’s a sign that Tomorrowland will be embracing more of the forward-thinking from its past (like in the Tomorrowland special of the Disneyland TV series).
