Meet Me at Disneyland Pt. 6: Tomorrowland
Of all the lands, Tomorrowland is the one I spend the least amount of time in. This trip proved to be the exception, as the light crowds permitted a walk-on situation for all the biggies. Despite that, the main reason I removed myself from the norm this trip was to get a few photos of the "Iron Man 3" exhibit at Innoventions, aka the former Carousel of Progress.
People playing video games.
Infomercials cleverly presented in the form of edu-tainment.
And the main reason I came: the Iron Man exhibit, featuring costumes (or replicas?) from the movie.
This one shot made it all worth it. This kid was having a ball. Absolutely priceless.
A few more "Iron Man" shots, so that you don't forget the Marvel-Disney connection.
The Dream Home is still here, but now that it's over five years old, the "thrill" (and I use that term loosely) is definitely gone...or pretty much on the way out.
I didn't bother re-visiting the Dream Home; there were enough people milling inside that it extinguished the tiny bit of desire I might have had to go through once again.
Instead, it was onward and upward to Space Mountain.
Although this is one of my favorite "thrill" rides at Disneyland, I guarantee it wouldn't be half as exciting if the lights were on.
How dare that little girl attempt to cover my face!
Working my way back to the front of Tomorrowland, Star Tours was next on the day's to-do list.
One of the greatest comedy duos since Laurel & Hardy.
The doors open...one group departs, and the next one begins to board.
Time to put the camera away as the journey is about to start...and photos of the 3D screen look like ca-ca anyway.
Final Tomorrowland attraction for the day was Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters.
32?!? Wow...I really need to work on my game.
One closeup of the Astro Orbiter gate, and then I was finished with the Tomorrowland portion of my day.
Tomorrow, we'll meet on Main Street—both of them!
