    I LOVE Steam Punk Victorian-esque!...except this was a half baked attempt at it. Basically it was just classic TL painted bronze and gold :/ And Space Mountain looked cool with its oxydation...and some of the metal and rust around the land was kinda cool too...but it wasnt any DLP Space Mountain or Journey to the Center of the Earth, or 20,000 Leagues and thats what it needed to be...it looked cheap and felt cheap because all it was was a paint job....its too bad.

    I like the new paint job though, it takes classic TL and freshens it up without making it seem dated in a 60s and 70s retro way....but lets see how long that lasts

Shouldnt they just get rid of ALL THE GOLD, since white and blue dont go with Gold at all?

    mp3piratesavvy- I merged you're thread "Tomorrowland paint Scheme" with "Tomorrowland Paint Job" that was started last Tuesday.

    Please try not to Post duplicate threads, there is a search button and multiple pages in each forum.

    Thank you- Malibu Minion

    who's to say there won't be? I like the the abstract looking future they show now.

    Hence the creamy-colored right spire.

    I personally kind of like it right now (with the blue and white and the accents of the funky gold). It's more futuristic in a retro way

    Agreed. I think the gold (as a small accent), blue and white can go together, the blue is a bit too blue and could have been more successful as more toward a cool silver. The fact that they are painting faux rockwork the blue color makes it look like more spraypaint. I think the paint is another bandaid and there still is no big idea behind Tomorrowland.

    In any event, I'm thrilled so see Space Mountain has returned to optimism white, from it's patina "Captain Nemo" phase.

    I think it's nice, too. Plus, gold = 50th.

    I think it works fine...adds some contrast which is good. It is simply impossible to remove the gold in time for the 50th.

    As Disneyland celebrates its 50th anniversary, they're adding gold to almost everything in the park. I suspect that as they obliterate the hideous brown/purple color scheme in Tomorrowland and return to the brighter blue,silver and white, they're leaving a bit of the gold for the celebration. It will probably disappear eventually. I really don't think the gold blends all that well with the new theme.

    If it's a budgetary concern...I will personally pay for whatever paint they need to cover the gold in exchange for an absolute promise that the Rocket Jets will return to their correct overhead position and I get the first ride. :lol:

    I like it, myself. It's a bit of a fusion of both, and no, going back to entirely the way it was pre-98 is not the answer, since Tomorrowland was becoming Outdatedland in those stark solid colors.

    I like the new paint, I just hope the blue dosn't look so powdery when it's done.

    I would leave some gold around and mesh it with silver & blue. It would look good. Gold looks GREAT in TL, just not rust or bronze colors.

    And yes, it does represent an optimistic future, not the future that could have been in terms of 1940s America (that's what it was supposed to look like, right? All Metropolis and such.)
    1940s america? Try 1900s London...and im not kidding.
