THE TRUE HISTORY OF TOMORROWLAND
Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney
Tomorrowland welcomed its first visitors when Disneyland California opened on July 17, 1955, presenting a look at the world of 1986.
In its first six years Tomorrowland also offered guests a tour of the original sets of Disney’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
Disneyland’s Monorail, Submarine Voyage and Matterhorn rides opened in Tomorrowland in 1959 during the park’s “second opening”.
Before his death in 1966, Disney envisioned a “space port”, which became, in 1977, Tomorrowland’s most popular ride: Space Mountain.
1986 saw George Lucas partner with Disney\ when Tomorrowland acquired the Star Wars- centric Star Tours and Michael Jackson’s Captain EO.
Back when the future was all black and white.
