Disneyland is a teasure trove of history. This blog post looks at Tommorrowland and how it's evolved over the years. If you need a refresher on exactly where Tomorrowland is on a map, check out our Disneyland park map.

Tomorrowland is one of the five original lands from opeing day 62 years ago and has had more attractions come and go than any other land including Adventure Thru Inner Space, the People Mover, Ricket Rods and the Carousel of Progress.

Tommorowland has been reimagined a total of three times since the park opened, the last one being in 1998 when Imagineers renovated Tommorowland with a Jules Verne overlay.

Since 2005, Tomorrowland's attractions have continued to evolve such as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Star Tours and the re-launch of Space Mountain.

Tomorrowland has 9 attractions today, including Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. Guests can also dive deep into the deep sea world in Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage or blast off to a galaxies far away on Space Mountain. Other reimagined attractions include Star Tours and Autopia.

Tomorrowland Attractions:

  • Astro Orbitor

  • Autopia

  • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters

  • Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage

  • Space Mountain

  • Star Tours – The Adventures Continue

  • Starcade

Over the years Tomorrowland Terrace has featured many exciting shows. Today, young Padawans, ages 4 to 12 years can train to become a young Jedi Knight to enter into battle with the villainous Darth Vader and Darth Maul on the Tomorrowland Terrace Stage in a special Jedi Training Academy.

Tomorrowland landscaping focuses on sustainable food supplies. Termed “agrifuture,” Tomorrowland's landscaping includes orange trees, lettuce, kale, strawberries and grapes.

Did you know?

  • When the Submarine Voyage opened in 1959, live mermaids swam in the lagoon.

  • The Disneyland Monorail was the first daily operating monorail system in the entire Western Hemisphere.

  • Autopia, the only original Tomorrowland attraction remaining from opening day, was significantly upgraded in 2000, adding the Fanstasyland and Tomorrowland stations as a single boarding port.

  • The Matterhorn Bobsleds can be found in only one Disney park – Disneyland. A refresh in 2012 added glistening paint and “snow caps” to the icy slopes outside, along with new lighting on the menacing Abominable Snowman inside.

  • The Carousel Theater was previously the site of two other attractions: Carousel of Progress, which is now an attraction at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, and America Sings, which sent many of its critters to Splash Mountain after concluding its run in 1988.
