In the eastern area of the Magic Kingdom lies Tomorrowland, Walt Disney's vision of the future. Walt Disney was known for his futuristic views, and since its launch in 1955, Tomorrowland has been continuously updated to keep ahead in these ever-advancing technological times. A metal and glass space age spectacular inspired by the writings of the 1920's and 1930's sci fi, there is so much to see and do here.
Use the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover to get from attraction to attraction in futuristic fashion. Take a high-rise ride on the Astro Orbiter and get an unbeatable view to survey the area, then get blasted off to the outer reaches of the universe at Space Mountain. Report for duty as a Galactic Federation Security Agent at Stitch's Great Escape, and enter the world of Monsters, Inc at the Laugh Floor, where the audience's mirth is converted to electricity. Meanwhile, over at the Indy Speedway, start the engine and get ready, set and go on this mini race track, all the way to the finish line and arrive in the Victory Circle.
Visitors can also grab a snack while in Tomorrowland at the Launching Pad within the Rockettower Plaza, or at Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies, or at the Cool Ship. Complete lunches, such as sandwiches, burgers, and salads can be purchased at Ray's Starlight CafÃ©. The one and only intergalactic lounge singer, Sonny Eclipse, can also be seen at the CafÃ©. Fried chicken, pizza, and salads can be purchased at the Plaza Pavilion.
Shopping opportunities also abound in Tomorrowland. Here, souvenirs can be purchased at stores such as Ursa's Major Minor Mart and Geiger's Counter. Mickey's Star Traders offers jewellery, books, film, toys, and hats, while the Merchant of Venus sells wigs, Stitch merchandise, jewellery, futuristic toys, home dÃ©cor, and fashion merchandise.
