Beacon to Tomorrow
The Astro Orbiter forms a singular icon greeting guests as they enter Tomorrowland. Framed between two rocky outcroppings, placed in front of the branching off of the old Peoplemover track, this attraction simultaneously anchors the head of Tomorrowland, creates a bottleneck at an entry that once did not have one, and provides some wonderful views around The Hub. But at night, after the crowds have died down, it reverts to a landmark. And what a monumental, futuristic one it is!
