Tomorrowland '67 - "A World On The Move"

.
.
That was the catchphrase for the "new" Tomorrowland of 1967 (my favorite "land" for many years). The current Tommorrowland's catchphrase when it opened in 1998 was, "Imagination And Beyond!" Personally, I would add "Lack Of " to that phrase. Not much moves in the heart of Tomorowland today. There is nothing moving on the old People Mover track. Nothing exciting moves on a regular basis on top of the former Rocket Jet platform. The Carousel Theater building has been turning for the past 10 years (after remaining static for 10 years before that), but it's movement is nothing but a very cruel tease since there is no longer a revolving theater show or any type of real attraction inside.....only exhibits to try to get you to purchase one of it's sponsor's products. Are you looking for the Skyway gondolas that used to cross overhead? Sorry, those were removed 4 years prior to the reopening of this exciting new Tomorrowland. Oh wait, look....there's something moving over there on the ground. What is it? It's...it's...a giant wet marble!!!! As Mickey says at the end of Fantasmic, "Some imagination, huh?"
