Project Stardust, which has been focused on enhancements and beautification that improve guest flow, finally hit Tomorrowland recently with the removal of much of the futuristic rockwork that marked the land’s entrance.
Imagineers have opened up the space and will be installing more trees and planters filled with colorful flowers, plus Space Age-spires to mark the entrance.
Imagineer Kim Irvine said of the new design:
“Tomorrowland has always represented a feeling of optimism. [Imagineer] John Hench originally designed the land with this notion of being wide open to innovative ideas and technology. When we started looking at the different Tomorrowland entrances through the years, both the 1955 and 1967 versions had a very optimistic appeal which resonated with us.”
