While taking an early morning ride on the PeopleMover, we spotted some bright new colors in Tomorrowland!
We noticed the smooth orange and white color scheme of Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies first. That pop of orange color against the white really stands out. I’m suddenly craving a creamsicle.
In addition to Auntie Gravity’s paint job, we noticed Mickey’s Star Traders also got an eye-catching new turquoise makeover.
The paint color is bright and compliments the futuristic Mickey logo on the wall. Let’s just hope they replace all the missing plants.
While the fresh paint caught my attention from the PeopleMover first, the empty space between Auntie Gravity’s doors was most noticeable when walking through Tomorrowland. The foliage and “Merchant of Venus” sign have been removed. Our guess is that it’s only temporary for the new coat of paint, but we will be watching this space.
It just looks so empty and cold. Maybe that’s what space is really like.
In non wall-related news, something that wasn’t removed, but in fact made a triumphant return was this panel from inside the queue of Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin:
What do you think of the new color scheme around Tomorrowland?
This is all a part of the ongoing refurbishment (and overhaul) of Tomorrowland in preparation for the opening of the Tron Lightcycle Power Run that’s set to open just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. Walls have been painted in phases over the last two years, but this is all a part of the same overarching project that brought us the new retro Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor sign and the infamous remodeled Purple Wall.
