The Cool Blues of a New Tomorrowland

Let's be honest here. After Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens up in 2019, the poor little area known as Tomorrowland is going to be woefully outdated. Oh, wait! It already is! 

It's Disneyland's  biggest embarrassment. The suits can stuff it with Star Wars themed odds and ends, toss in a Halloween layover for Space Mountain, act as if the Peoplemover track is really there only to support banners, and stick all the characters in it they can imagine, but the fact is, they can't- and won't- attempt to keep up with the future. If Walt Disney was truly frozen, he'd be coming back and yelling "What did you do to my beautiful future?"
