Luminous Tomorrowland Shanghai

Happy New Year!  Somehow, I've been keeping this blog going for the past four and a half years, which is about four years four months longer than I first expected.

Today, in the spirit of "new," we showcase one of the jewels of Disney's newest theme park, Shanghai Disneyland.  Specifically, we take a look at their wondrous and spectacular looking Tomorrowland, a radiant and futuristic themed land that seems to finally nail an aesthetic for the land of tomorrow that won't quickly become outdated (although, of course, time will tell).

Tomorrowland is full of smooth lines and flowing curves, and steel and glass designed in a way that conveys a sense of futuristic optimism.  However, it is nighttime where Tomorrowland truly shines.  Once those lights come on, Tomorrowland takes on a wholly different life, vibrant and out of a science fiction movie, and it's all utterly fantastic.

Here is but a brief glimpse at some of the scenes and attractions of Shanghai Disneyland's Tomorrowland.  I'm sure you'll agree: it's a magnificent sight!

The overview of Tomorrowland is utterly spectacular!
Of course, the big highlight is the TRON roller coaster.
But the general design is fantastic too.  This spiral stair, for example, would be right at home in modern design.


The TRON canopy lights up in changing colors at nighttime.
Those lightcycles race by in a streaking display of light.
Here's a long exposure enhancing the effect.
Another overview. Note the lighting tone changes.
Stargazer Grill is the main dining place in Tomorrowland.
Jet Packs is Shanghai's version of the spinning rocket ride.
A long exposure showcases the whirling flight toward tomorrow!
