Is the Past in Tomorrowland's Future?

Here's something I really miss from Disneyland and thoroughly enjoy while visiting the Magic Kingdom in Florida: the Peoplemover. Florida's Transit Authority has returned to mixed reviews on its audio tour, but just having this great attraction up and running is a tribute to good old common sense. The future belongs in Tomorrowland, and nothing aside from Space Mountain has represented the land as well.

This great old piece of concept art comes from back in the day when the executives at the company and Imagineering were really interested in keeping Tomorrowland about tomorrow. I still have alot of faith in the Disney Imagineers, especially those working on Walt's original park under Tony Baxter's lead. Can't wait to see what is up next!
