Tomorrowland on paper
You want more concept art for Tomorrowland? Well readers...here it is, beginning with an “overhead shot” of what Tomorrowland was supposed to look like on day one. The ornate water fountain at the entrance was scrapped in the rush to just get this land open on time.
In image #2, looks like the PeopleMover and the Monorail spliced together in one groovy hanging vehicular transportation system:
As was pointed out yesterday, it appears that the Moonliner was originally to be on a platform, similar to what the Rocket Jets became during the “New Tomorrowland” renovation of 1967. See...if you just hold onto an idea long enough there’s a good chance it may come to fruition.
And finally, the interior of the Rocket to the Moon attraction; pretty durn close to the final concept, as can be seen by the photo comparison posted here:
And although there are some inaccuracies, just for the heck of it, I will give you three shots of the Opening Day Model that resided inside of the Opera House for a number of years:
