While visiting Magic Kingdom this morning, we decided to check up on the Tomorrowland visual refresh project that has been ongoing for months (if not longer).
As you might recall, we did a bit of a deep dive on the various states and stages of the Tomorrowland visual refresh in a previous post that outlines the work that is ongoing in the land. In this post, we’ll take a look at the latest work, including an impact to the Purple Wall photo op that has become quite famous over the years.
We’ll start on the north side of the land, and a repainting project that attempts to bring some of the Tomorrowland ’94 theming elements into the 21st century with a new coat of paint instead of a proper replacement. As you can see in the photos below, Disney is painting over some of the PeopleMover track supports instead of creating a sleek new look like they’ve done in other parts of the land and visual refresh project.
We’ll start back in a seldom visited corner of the land where the paint has been applied fully.
We can see the repainting in progress by the stroller parking near the Stitch meet and greet. In the photo below, you can see the old, metallic look on the left support and the new coat of white paint on the right support.
Elsewhere in the land, work continues to remove some of the Tomorrowland ’94 theming elements that run along the PeopleMover track.
Behind this scrim, work is taking place on the supports and upper theming elements.
On the south side of the walkway, we still see some of the old ’94 theming elements. These should be addressed shortly.
Finally, if you’re looking to take some Purple Wall photos, know that the entire location is essentially in a tunnel as scrims cover some of the supports that sit nearby. It’s a bit dark in this tunnel, so maybe head over to EPCOT for some photos with the Bubble Gum Wall…while you still can.
