It’s a great big beautiful Tomorrowland at Tokyo Disneyland. As Disney Parks Blog posted, Tokyo Disneyland’s Tomorrowland will be closing in 2024 for a major refurbishment, and will reopen sometime in 2027. As part of the project, Space Mountain – a fan favorite since Tokyo Disneyland opened in 1983 – will be completely rebuilt. A new Space Mountain will keep the original concept as a thrilling indoor coaster that takes guests on a high-speed journey through space, but will also include a more sleek exterior, enhanced performance, and immersive special effects.
Aside from the reinvention of Space Mountain, the new Tomorrowland “will represent a future where humans are in harmony with nature. It will also give guests areas to rest and relax, while enjoying various icons and design elements that will create a sense of hope for the future. In the evenings, guests can enjoy lighting and sound effects that will further enhance their experience in this new area.”
The Tomorrowland update is intended to give guests even more thrills via Space Mountain, while also providing a greater connection between Earth and the universe.
These enhancements to Tomorrowland seem in line with the feeling and message behind Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. What do you think? Let us know with a comment here, or send a direct message on social:
