Tomorrowland My Home

Welcome to those of you joining me from The Magical Mouse Pad and those of you just hopping
aboard. I am the second stop on our Magical Blogorail. Today we are discussing our favorite Magic Kingdom lands.

Almost every Walt Disney World fan I speak to has a routine. "The first thing I always do in the Magic Kingdom is ________." When I conduct my non-scientific polls I almost always find that guests like to head to Adventureland and Pirates of the Caribbean first. I'm really not sure why but it's usually an overwhelming majority. (This seems like a good question to my friends over at TouringPlans.com.)

I, on the other hand, would always head straight to the right and over the bridge into Tomorrowland. Again, I'm not really sure. But when I started the Walt Disney World College Program in the fall of 2004, I was thrilled to find out I would be working somewhere in Tomorrowland.

Tomorrowland is an eclectic land. It features eight extremely unique attractions. I cannot fathom going to Walt Disney World without a ride on Space Mountain. But while Space Mountain is an extremely popular attraction among guests, it is the lesser known attractions that I enjoy the most.

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority (TTA, PeopleMover, etc.) is my favorite place to go after a long day. Need to put your feet up? There is no better place than the TTA. I've also heard it's ideal to put a baby to sleep!

Long before Toy Story Midway Mania there was Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. Call me sentimental, but I enjoy this attraction just as much as the highly sought after attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I think it may be because I am a Galactic Hero here pretty regularly!

For the purposes of this post I will pretend that Stitch's Great Escape does not exist? Agreed?

What's your favorite part of Tomorrowland?

We always go to Tomorrowland first (even before our CP)! I love Buzz, Space Mountain, the People Mover, and Astro Orbiter. Those are some of my favorites! Monster's Inc comedy thing is pretty cute. 

I also LOVE the Carousel of Progress. 

Not a fan of Stitch, though. Or the Indy cars. Still, Tomorrowland has TONS of my favorites and it is and always will be our first stop in MK!

Thanks, Roe! Love it!

The TTA has always been a favorite of mine.

I have such an amazing time on that attraction every trip! I can't put my finger on it but I love it!

Yay!! Another "Tomorrowland first" girl! I love Monster's Inc. too! The Tomorrowland Speedway is not a favorite of mine either. But I do hear that it is thrilling for kid to feel like they are in control of a car! Miss you :)

Sometimes I feel like I'm overly negative, but then I go on the attraction again...
