  • [Fun] Tomorrowland Update: Would you prefer "gritty" or "clean"?

    When Tomorrowland is finally renovated, would you like it to be....

    "Gritty": Something with the look of Blade Runner/Fifth Element/Mos Eisley/etc....

    or

    "Clean": Something with the look of Star Trek: TNG/2001/Jetsons/etc....

    or

    Both: Maybe an bright, optimistic look at the future....but with a dark corner lurking in Tomorrowland!

    (And no, I don't mean theming it actually using Mos Eisley or the Jetsons or whatever...I'm just trying to paint a picture of a "look"!)

    Interesting question. I love good set design, so a tiny part of me would prefer that lived in look, but I like the IDEA of a clean future, the optimism of it.

      I don't see a gritty atmosphere working in a theme park. Makes for some of my favorite sci-fi movies, but in a theme park, I don't want to ride a ride in a post-apocalyptic utopia lol--too depressing, especially in a Disney park. I could see 'both' working, however, if they made a Wall-E ride, but even then, I would hope the ride would be more optimistic.

        Again, I chose clean, for idealism, but you could totally have a dirty work in a theme park, look at the Indy ride... as you walk through the queue it has that totally lived in look...

          I'd like to see a "clean" Tomorrowland, but it would be cool if there was a "dark" side of the land with a cool, scary E-ticket ride!

            I always had a vision of the future being clean, so I guess clean. I also agree that a worn-out, gritty look probably wouldn't work too well in a theme park.

              As dreary as TL is right now, a bleak facade would contradict Walt's vision of the future & conflict with the overall theme of "The Happiest Place On Earth." Certainly Disney can buy the rights to the Mad Max franchise, they've purchased just about everything else, but that's not big on the warm & fuzzies that the House of Mouse is famous for.
              Nuclear fallout, starvation, & lawlessness just aren't going to be a big draw. You can get all those things outside the berm right now & it isn't going to cost you the high entrance fee.
              Somehow I don't think that the Armageddon Cafe sounds like an appetizing moniker for a dining establishment.

                I was actually thinking of a "used universe", not something post-apocalyptic. I don't remember nuclear fallout, starvation, and lawlessness being part of Blade Runner/Fifth Element/Star Wars...maybe I need to re-watch those movies!

                  Back to what it was in 1981, only with a new AA attraction in the carousel. In other words, lots of movement, beautiful murals, a wonderful stage next to Space Mountain, perhaps a modernized Peoplemover.
                  God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                    I think the gritty can belong in the attractions, but with theming of Tomorrowland, it should definitely live up to our hopes for a better tomorrow, or at the very least one that looks pristine.

                      I think there is room for both. If you look at Star Tours: you're in a sleek, futuristic spaceport, but you also get a glimpse at the gritty parts with the luggage droids.

                        Clean on the facades, but it is okay if it is gritty for the interior if they were to make a Wall E attraction or something

                          I'm a Trekkie, so I love the idea of a clean, utopian future, but it should certainly look lived-in and "real."

                            I want to see a clean version of Tomorrowland. That is what Walt created, "a great big beautiful tomorrow." That is why I don't think the dystopian future depicted in Wall E fits in very well with the land.

                              I chose clean, but I want it in the sense Frontierland in clean.
                              mos Eisley and a blade runner aesthetic.. Giant LED's with fantastic TRON/Bladerunner/SW animations and entertainment on them. Partner adverts wouldn't bother me either (Futuristic coke commercials).
                              The lagoon, transformed into a steampunk world, gritty but clean, of Jules Verne...a return to the 20,000 leagues
                              an update to the gates, a new space mountain facade... Remove the people mover tracks, neon and future fantasy.
