Here’s something I started a while ago, but only recently got around to finishing, just in time for post number 600. I unfortunately lost some of my photo credits, but thanks to all sites for photo usage. Hopefully this is the first analysis piece of many to come. Enjoy!
Alleged Tron coaster going up at Shanghai Disneyland [x]
The plot thickens! (Also hometown pride!)
Will it be just a standard exposed iron ride? Thats a new direction!
The ride is supposedly going to be similar to Space Mountain in that it will be a Tomorrowland-based indoor coaster, but with Tron theming instead of space. In all likelihood, the look will be close to Tron: Legacy and the third film coming out eventually with emphasis on the lines of light and such. Think something like this:
The ride definitely has potential to be cool, but they haven’t released much about it, or much about Shanghai Disneyland aside from released initial concept art, for that matter. It might potentially come up at this year’s D23 now that significant construction is underway and because the park is opening in 2015. Here’s hoping more info/leaked photos come out soon!
A few 1971 Disney World postcards. Especially interesting is the Goofy postcard, you can clearly see the Contemporary Resort in the background. Today that view would be blocked by both the canopy and by Space Mountain. Via WDW in Postcards. More vintage Disney.
Gorgeous shots all around, but the Nautilus shot takes the cake for looking like it could have been taken today.
