A photo tour - Disney Magic Kingdom - Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland was the last themed land that we visited in Magic Kingdom.
As the name suggests it features attractions which depict views of the future and how things will take shape in the coming years.

                                                                   Credits - Here

We started my trip of Tomorrowland with Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.
The ride is based on the movie, Toy Story 2.

It is a shooting ride where guests are made to sit in a vehicle having capacity of 2 and provided with laser guns. There is also a joystick in the vehicle which provides 360 degree rotation.
Various targets carrying different points show up during the ride which have to be hit by the laser gun. At the end of the ride a digital score flashes on the screen. I was able to earn 25,000 points making me a Planetary Pilot :)

Next in line was Space Mountain, an indoor outer space themed roller coaster.
The ride happens in dark with lot of ups & downs, twists & turns.
Overall it is a nice experience.

Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress, was our next attraction.
The guests are made to sit in hall which moves from one phase of time to another. The attraction shows the technological advances made during 20th century through an American family.

"There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow", song is played after each shift of time phase.
It was ok types, nothing that great.

Our last attraction for the day was PeopleMover, a ride which takes the guests on a tour of various attractions in Tomorrowland.
It was a good 10 minutes ride where we were able to relax a bit.

As we were short of time so we couldn't cover the remaining attractions which are as below

In Autopia we drive specially designed cars in an enclosed area.

Astro Orbitor is a rock spinner attraction in which there are 12 planet shaped containers in which guests are made to sit. These containers are attached to a central tower shaped structure and spin round and round. The ascent and descent of the container can be controlled by the guests with a control stick.

Stitch's Great Escape! is an attraction which is high on special effects.
Guests are made to sit in a round theatre starring the Little Alien from Disney's animated comedy Lilo & Stitch. The show is know for usage of laser cannons, light effects, smoke and hydraulic pumps.

The last attraction , Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor is a digital puppetry show.

It was an epic time exploring the attractions of Magic Kingdom. Anyone who loves creativity, innovation and has an anxiety to explore new things should definitely visit it once in their lifetime.
