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.
