A brand new entrance is currently being worked on for Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park! This new entrance is part of Project Stardust and you can see what it’s expected to look like in the concept art above.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Imagineers wanted to open up the space and improve access into the land, but it was also important to maintain the land’s overall complexion too, with trees and beautiful planters. Guests will soon be entering Tomorrowland on widened pathways lined with elliptical planters that are filled with colorful flowers.
You may recognize that this new threshold into the future pays homage to Tomorrowland entrances of yesterday. Tomorrowland has always represented a feeling of optimism. [Imagineer] John Hench originally designed the land with this notion of being wide open to innovative ideas and technology. When we started looking at the different Tomorrowland entrances through the years, both the 1955 and 1967 versions had a very optimistic appeal which resonated with us,” Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine noted.
With this update to Tomorrowland, today’s Imagineers are looking to create Space Age-inspired spires, which will flank the entrance.
The new entrance will be completed in 2020.
