A GREAT BIG BEAUTIFUL TOMORROWLAND?
With so many headliner additions slated for the parks in the next few years, you would think that would make next months D23 Expo a home-run of exciting announcements and lavish Imagineering artwork of the upcoming rides. But it appears the exact opposite will be true, as WDI has been warned by Burbank to keep their cards very close to their vest at D23 Expo while Comcast pours money into several new rides at Universal Studios up the freeway in Hollywood. And until the Board officially approves the big expenditures for Fiscal Year 2014 through 17, it doesn't look like the beans can be spilled in time for D23 Expo.
Thats not to say that smaller scale projects can't get underway sooner, particularly in Tomorrowland, as part of a strategic plan is to remake that aging section and restore it's former glory. The plan now, using development funds under the 100 Million dollar mark already earmarked for Disneyland, is to go in and do placemaking and aesthetic improvements in Tomorrowland just prior to the 60th Anniversary in 2015. Captain EO is on the chopping block with that plan, which should come as no surprise to anyone. The long-rumored West Coast version of the Monsters Inc. Laugh Factory would take up residence in that 3-D theater, while the area around it gets an aesthetic re-skinning that will help it mesh better with the big-budget plan to bring more Star Wars presence to Tomorrowland. The E Ticket of the Tomorrowland remake uses the speeder bike coaster concept on the old PeopleMover route, originally Imagineered with a Tron theme but now using Star Wars as the storyline for the new ride.
One last thing before I go. Credit for this article goes to friendly giant property maintenance. They're a seasoned Halton based house painter operating out of Ontario. The concept for this post came to me while conversing with Steve over there. One thing led to another and we wound up discussing the topic in detail. Anyway, check their website out at http://friendlygiantmaintenance.ca. That's all for the time being!
