          If you look at the picture carefully, Tommorowland 98 did pretty much look like that. The picture is just a stylized artists rendering. Of course there are a couple of details which never made it to the final product.

              Yup, exactly ....

              The walkway widing (in the entrance) was NOT done.
              The video displays were NOT put in.
              Rocket Rods never got banked turns.
              They went crazy on the gold paint.
              Observatron was junk (and hard to maintain?)
              Went for the enhancement-by-paint solution instead of redoing things/facades
              Couple of new attractions that never got off the ground.
              Atlantis bombed. So the supposed Subs redo never happened.

              Basically, what we got was a pale version of what was original
              concept. which should have been similar to DLP's Discoveryland concept.

              Anyway, that's what I remember... a sad chapter in all. I'm really glad
              we're past it!

                It looks cluttered. What are those loops around the Astro Orbiter?

                  I didn't know all that was suppose to happen. It would have been cool to have the video screens. What was the Observation suppose to do?

                    Simple: where is the viewer standing in that picture? About ten feet above the top of Photo Supply is my best guess. TL '98 was designed to look fabulous from an angle that wasn't physically possible for a person to experience. The view from the ground... not so much.

                      The original sketches for Disneyland are from a similar angle. Still came out to be a nice place.

                        Well the retro monorail in the background was just delayed...the rest of it looks like the sub-par Tomorrowland that arrived. It looks like what DL got...not a spectacular concept piece.

                          Yeah, but they also paid attention to the ground elevations. I've seen some of the other art used in designing TL '98, and the best-looking stuff was all from similarly high angles.

                            Oh I understand. I'm just saying that it looks to be more of a case of poor execution as opposed to poor design.

                              I think my favorite picture of that is how they show some big swervy thing, an Astro Orbiter over water, and even a freakin' BUBBLE TOP MONORAIL but they still show no banking on the PM track and no subs in the water.

                              And while we're posting TL 98 concept art
