Refurbishment of Tomorrowland Galactic Gateway Rocket Tower Plaza Stage Complete

The refurbishment of the Galactic Gateway stage in Magic Kingdom is now complete. The Tomorrowland venue has been blocked off for repainting and maintenance since early March.

A closed stage with a futuristic design featuring a large screen displaying text and graphics. Blue and white color scheme with metal truss structures on either side. Clear sky in the background.

Rolling planters are gone from around the stage, indicating work is done. The stage has a fresh new blue and silver color scheme. For comparison, below is a photo of the stage from March.

It previously had bright aqua-colored pillars and yellow back corners. The booth across from the stage was also repainted with the new color scheme.

Outdoor stage setup with a large screen and sound equipment, flanked by two lighting rigs on a clear, sunny day. A monorail track is visible in the background.

Now the curved pillars are the same dark blue as the bases of the stage lighting supports. The edge of the stage, which was formerly white, is a light blue.

Two slanted panels on the stage’s back wall were previously black. They are now white like the rest of the wall (except for two black pieces of glass).

The shutters next to the doors on the stage are now gold against blue panels. The shutters were formerly purple.

The floor of the stage appears to be about the same as it was before — gray with black details. The screen, which was recently reactivated, displays the same old “Galactic Gateway” logo in space.

The side walls of the stage are light blue instead of white. The previously yellow corners are now the dark blue. There are silver and gold details.

Rows of circles on the sides and back are dark green.

A modern building with a blue and white color scheme, featuring circular windows and geometric shapes, stands against a partly cloudy sky with vegetation in the foreground.

This isn’t the first time the stage has been repainted. Years ago, when it still hosted Stitch’s SuperSonic Celebration, the stage featured more purple and green. The newest color scheme better matches current Tomorrowland theming.

There are still two rolling planters left around a lighting support. A blue tarp covers part of the support’s base.

A theme park area featuring a brown rectangular planter box with tall green shrubs, set on a paved surface with signage and structural elements in the background.

The other planter is in front of the showtimes sign, which has read “No Shows Today” for a long time. The stage usually hosts seasonal shows and dance parties, as well as character appearances.

This area is also known as Rocket Tower Plaza Stage or, informally, the Tomorrowland stage.
