As we reported last week, Disney is in the process of removing the Tomorrowland entrance rocks at Disneyland. Disney hasn’t given a timeline for the work, but thanks to some photos courtesy of Mondo from Five Fires YouTube Channel, we can see that the northern section of the entrance has been completely relieved of the “french fry” rocks.
First, here’s a look back at the rocks as they were during our visit to Disneyland earlier this year as the Astro Orbiter was under refurbishment.
Ironically enough, it’s the Astro Orbiter that we get a good vantage point of the Tomorrowland entrance rock removal today. Disney says that the work is part of their “Project Stardust” work to expand walkways throughout Disneyland in an effort to ease crowd flow throughout the park. The Tomorrowland entrance can certainly get crowded, and with work completed on the Adventureland entrance, it would make sense that Disney has turned their sights to other land entrances.
Disney has stated that the southern half of the Tomorrowland entrance rocks will be removed “in the coming months”, but haven’t given a completion date or said what their intentions for the entrance will be when the project is completed. With the Disney Parks and Resorts panel today at the D23 Expo, it’s possible that Disney could finally announce the long-rumored Tomorrowland overhaul project. We’ll be covering the panel with up-to-the-minute news stories here on BlogMickey.com, so make sure you’re checking back with us around 1:30pm EST/10:30am PST when the panel kicks off!
