Hi everyone!

Tomorrowland Update: Space Mountain Testing plus New PeopleMover Spiel – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We have video that includes the new PeopleMover spiel, courtesy of Mousesteps.com. There are many differences with the new wording, including the removal of “Paging Mr. Morrow“. Also, instead of mentioning “The City of Tomorrow“, the Epcot model is referred to as Progress City (below, left). The PeopleMover does go through Space Mountain, which is now testing (below, right).

Tomorrowland Update – Skyway Station Coming Down, Space Mountain Stripped of Lettering – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

There is so much going on around Walt Disney World – the first Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party is tonight, and I will be sharing photos from it this weekend!  The most interesting part of my day yesterday was seeing the Space Mountain sign and Fast Pass machines stripped, as well as the Tomorrowland Skyway station partly torn down (My vintage footage of the Magic Kingdoms Tomorrowland can be found on my DVD, Tomorrowland Classics).

You can see below that the Space Mountain sign has been stripped of all color (below, left). Construction vehicles are parked in front of the Space Mountain building (below, right).
