Tomorrowland.




Tomorrowland is yet another reason why Disneyland/World are an AtomPunk fan’s wet dream. This place embodies the ideas of the Atomic Age, from its Futurist/Googie architecture to the monorail and the “World of Tomorrow” it projects.


From Wikipedia:

Tomorrowland is one of the many themed lands at the five “Magic Kingdom-style” theme parks around the world owned or licensed by The Walt Disney Company. Each version of the land is different and features numerous attractions that depict views of the future. Disneyland Park (Paris) includes a similar area called Discoveryland, which shares some elements with other Tomorrowlands but emphasizes Jules Verne-inspired visions of a future that never came to fruition.

Walt Disney was known for his futurist views and, through his television programs, showed the American public how the world was moving into the future. Tomorrowland was the realized culmination of his views. In his own words: “Tomorrow can be a wonderful age. Our scientists today are opening the doors of the Space Age to achievements that will benefit our children and generations to come. The Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future.”
