Hey! Spend a Day in Tomorrowland!

Who, out there, is excited to see Disney’s upcoming film “Tomorrowland”?  Show of hands?  Yeah, I thought so.  We’re looking forward to it as well.

We have a few months to wait for the movie, of course, as it doesn’t open until May 22nd.  But, in the meantime, Mrs. All in WDW and I thought we’d spend some “quality time” with Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland.

I have to admit, we sometimes take Tomorrowland for granted.  In truth, when we visit Mickey’s Magic Kingdom, we often spend most of our time in Adventureland sailing with swashbuckling pirates or cruising through the jungles of the world.

If not those exciting activities, we head to the back of the park in order to get frightened by the mansion’s 999 haunts … or, to take a leisurely stroll through Fantasyland.  Tomorrowland is often an afterthought.

Until now!

Please enjoy our brief photo tour of Disney’s Magic Kingdom’s “world of tomorrow”, my friends!  And, well, Mrs. All in WDW and I will see ya’ “tomorrow”!

If you want a proper tour of Tomorrowland, this should be your first stop!

Blinding speed around those corners? No, these cars are pretty tame.

The "mover" takes you into Space Mountain ...

... and, this is what you get when it stops suddenly, in the mountain, and in pitch dark.  Hey, at least they turned on a light or two!

Of course, here IS the Magic Kingdom's signature mountain!

The “Land” of Tomorrow!

Wow, I have to admit that I didn’t see this one coming.  We may be “Mad about the Magic Kingdom!”, but we’re evidently bonkers over Tomorrowland!  Is it Stitch’s fault?

Actually, the tally was excruciatingly close.  Only twelve votes separated five of the Magic Kingdom’s “Lands”, so it’s unfair to call Tomorrowland’s win a resounding “victory”.  I think it has to be labeled a shocker, though.  Doesn’t it?  I mean, what happened to Liberty Square?  Isn’t that where the All in WDW “champion attraction” – the Haunted Mansion – resides?  What about Main Street?  Isn’t that a nostalgic favorite of people – young and old?  New Fantasyland?

When we named the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Disney’s Magic Kingdom Attraction back in March, and then again when we elected our favorite WDW attraction a few weeks later, it was …
