Notes on the audio after the Tomorrowland loop
- as Carlene and I begin to talk about the entrance to Tomorrowland she
mentions a movie about some scientists that get shrunk down and inserted
into a human body, I call it Fantastic Journey, but I belive the title
was actually Fantastic Voyage
- as we wander several songs from the Main Street music loop play
also when we are at the windows to the Emporium you can hear a little
bit of When You wish Upon a Star
Shortly after that Carlene asks if the CM she sent to give me
information was helpful, what she is refering to is from when I was recording
the Tomorrowland loop she went to ask a CM if there was a better place to
record than where I was, he did let me know that the upper queue area for
Space Mountain also had speakers but
with all the folks in line up there I doubt that
there was any less crowd noise. I was actually in
the Cosmic Waves fountain area.
When we reach the Esplanade several songs from that loop play
- Beautiful Beulah
- I could Love A Million girls
- Yankee Doodle Dandy
- Winter Garden Rag
- and after the bathroom break Wells Fargo Wagon
- the last few notes of the Fantasmic Finale
- Be Our Guest (carousel version)
- Davy Crockett
WDW Tomorrowland postcards
About half of the following is simply taken
from the postcard side of my web site, but it does condense
all the Tomorrowland information onto one page.
Probably the most eagerly awaited attraction that opened was Space Mountain
and this is reflected in the early postcards. It was Walt
Disney Worlds first roller coaster and when hurtling around its' unseen curves through the dark (
not counting those points of starlight and asteroids) it seems to be going much faster
than its actual top speed of 27 miles per hour.
If you look at the background behind the characters
closely in both versions of this card you can see that these photos
were taken in the same location,
but in the shot with just Mickey and Goofy there are
no benches along the planters behind them, My guess is, that
in order to have some post cards ready in time for opening, this
shot was taken before Tomorrowlands construction
walls were removed and the land really opened up. These two cards look to
me as if they were taken on the site of what is now the Starcade.
On the card featuring an aerial view of
Tomorrowland a bit further down the page
you can see an orange looking wall in front of the
building that houses the loading platform for the WEDway Peoplemover and the
Rocket Jets perhaps that photo was taken before the walls came down too.
Above:0111-0361 WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
Below:0111-0362 MAGIC KINGDOM MANY WORLDS IN ONE,
0111-0369 OUTER SPACE RIGHT HERE IN FLORIDA
The four cards above are the only strictly Tomorrowland views issued in
standard size, and the last one was also later re-issued in Continental
size, in fact that image was sold on postcards for over 20 years. one of the
earliest 5 x 7 cartoon cards was also issued with a Tomorrowland view (below).
0100-11908 MOTOR MANIA
When the change over to continental sized postcards was made there were
only four views that included Tomorrowland, two of those were repeated
from the group above, the cartoon card (Motor Mania), and the interior shot of
the Space Mountain rockets (OUTER SPACE RIGHT HERE IN FLORIDA), and
both of the other two shared the same image, an identical view of the rocket
jets, used on one card as a stand-alone image
and on another card as part of a four-view.
0100-11801 MAGIC MOMENTS
IN THE MAGIC KINGDOM
In 1994 Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom recieved a major makeover,
and in response to that it got it's first new postcard in a long time.
It's actualy a beautiful card and
"The Future that Never Was is Here"
slogan really fit the new theme of the land.
In 1997 a whole new series of postcards was issued,
one of the cards was of Tomorrowland
The next card is one of the most beautiful of the Tomorrowland cards, but it
could have been sort of unappreciated because it was tucked away in
one of the postcard Folio sets sold from 1999 and on
into the first few years of the 2000's.
I'm not sure of the exact release date of this
next card but I suspect it was around 2002-03.
After stitches Great Escape opened a few new cards featuring that
attraction opened the first being the foil with
the " Alien Writing " and the phrase I'LL GIVE YOU A
STITCH OR TWO on the front, the more recent card has Stich biting
into a big Green and Blue fold of something.
In 2006 a new set of accordian folders came out including one for the Magic
Kingdom, the folder had two views of tomorrowland, but ironically both were
taken from outside the park.
The contemporary Connection
Of course aerial views of the Magic Kingdom tend to show Tomorrowland as
well, but other than that one view in the earlist Tomorrowland
cards above it's not really focused on Tomorrowland, but on several
views of the Contemporary resort Hotel over the years the proximity of
Space Mountain to that hotel was played up nicely
for a time the card above probably served as a
room card given to guests of the Contemporary, while all three cards below are
from an acordian style perforated strip of poscards sold starting in 1989.
Later in the 1990s this newer room card was issued
Ok so there were more Tomorrowland postcards than I thought but, if you
don't count cards of the Contemporary Resort Hotel then
it did take them over 25 years to get to ten different Tomorrowland views.
