Disneyland - Tomorrowland - Um, Now What?

I have not posted much about Tomorrowland.

There's not much to say these days.

We could talk about Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters.

But what would we do when those fourteen seconds were up?

Perhaps our time would be better suited mourning the passing of Circle Vision.

This lovely attraction provided a fabulous 360-degree motion picture tour of the United States (and, later, China). It was air conditioned. It took a good number of guests out of the Park.

Or the loss of America Sings or the Carousel of Progress to Innoventions? Ack. Pphhhphth.

I've heard that the Peoplemover may be making a come back, but I'm not making any promises.
That would be a step.
Putting the Rocket Jets back where they belong would be good, too.
Updating the Star Tours attraction after 21+ years would be a nice touch. (I think we've attacked the Death Star enough already!).
A little more white paint on the buildings and perennials in the flower beds would go quite a ways.
Oh, I don't know, it'd be nice to ride the Skyway again.
At least we have (or are trying to have) a new Monorail. Hope they finish getting the bugs out. Funny, the other ones worked fine for over 50 years! Leave it to the 2008 model to be a clunker.
Mission to Mars? Okay, I'll give 'em that one. Why not stick Mission Space in its place? Beats a dirty, smelly old Pizza Planet any day.
Tomorrowland Terrace.
Give us some primary colors on the Autopia.

My now familiar rant is now over for today.

Pax vobiscum, my friends.
