  • The Ugly Tomorowland Rocks

    Didn't Al say those were gonna get demolished back in '05? What the heck happened to this. They need to put grass or flowers their, make tomorowland more friendly.

    Presumably, those will stick around until the plans come through for the Astro-Orbiter remodel and transplant project.
    The rocks frame the orbiter in a way that would make it look verrrry out of place were it to be gone.

      The Astro Orbitor is very out of place... rocks or not.

        The Astro Orbitor and the rocks really are out of place, as a package deal or individually. They worked when the rest of the land was brown and bronze, but now with all of the silver, white, and blue paint, the Astro Orbitor and rocks look horribly out of place.

          I'm sure they wanted to avoid that deconstruction until
          after the 50th celebration, which just recently ended. Perhaps
          we will hear a little more about that in the next year or two.

          Right now TL is a complete mess with construction for Nemo,
          the recent completion of the new store, remodel back of the
          Tomorrowland Terrace, New Monorails/Station, the recent
          reconstruction of Space Mt, and the temporary show makeover
          for Space Mt for the 1st four months of next year. Then you
          still have the remnants from the TL'98 that need to be desperately
          painted, removed, replaced with what was there previously,

          That TL'98 Hangover is going to take quite awhile to recover from.
          Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                I thought the same thing. I thought the OP really liked the Ugly Tomorrowland.

                I'd like to see the rocks go, too. And the Astro Orbiter back to the platform.

                    The removal of those rocks is still on the long term plan for Tomorrowland. Many projects, including the DCA revival, were put on hold about the time that Management of Disneyland and Imagineering got shuffled around. However, the good news is that the plans are now much more extensive and less superficial than when we first reported on them a year ago. I'm sure that we will all be hearing much more about the plans for the new, new, new old tomorrowland very soon .

                      I can understand why they moved the Astro-Orbiter up front like that. Put something kinetic (Weenie) to draw focus into the land. TL needed that after PM left. But the rocks are just beyond me. They block off your view of the rest of the land, they choke the entry point and take up space that could be used for widened paths to alleviate some of the traffic that goes through there. Especially after fireworks/parades. I'm glad that it is still on their to do list. Although, something cool and amazingly lit and moving does need to go there. Possibly not as big as Astro-orbiter, but something.

                        i think a better "weenie" would be to have them back on the PeopleMover platform , and would i be cast out of the mice chatters if i said i kinda like the Astro Orbiter where it is?

                            Right at the entrance from the Hub.
                            They're golden brown, huge, crystal like...

                              Also, the Astro Orbiter that you see today was far too heavy to put on the Rocket Jets platform. They decided instead to move it down instead of retrofitting the platform for further weight.

                                A weenie is supposed to be towards the back of a land. The Castle already draws people to the hub, so placing the Astro Orbitor there is rather pointless. The rocks are there because by placing the Astro Oribitor in front of the Tomorrowland buildings it was no longer being framed by anything. Removing the rocks but leaving the Astro Orbitor would be a visual blight.

                                  Actually, weenies can be anywhere to draw attention to something. Adventureland used to have the AA bird on the sign to the land to draw people in.

                                    As Dusty said, there were a lot of things that have happened since that initial report. Plus, right now Tomorrowland is a mess as was stated earlier, with the subs, the monorail, tomorrowland terrace, matterhorn, autopia, the old radio Disney locale all being closed and/or rebuilt in the past few months, something needed to be put on the backburner. Though, with the subs and monorail now being less than a year away, I'm sure you will hear something soon.

                                      TL has been a complete mess for almost 10 years now. I doubt a few more construction projects going on will make a difference. The new store and the return of tomorrowland terrace projects are already complete so its time to move on the next phase of the Tomorrowland Revitilization Project.

                                        The Barker Bird was removed because he failed as a weenie. He was too popular and people had no desire to go further into the land as they only wanted to see the weenie that was offered first. The result was a horrific clog of the entry to Adventureland from the Hub.
