New Paintjob For Tomorrowland

There are major changes running in Tomorowland as Disneyland’s Tomorrowland is getting repainted with a brand new color scheme! Read on for more info!

The new colors will be white, blue and purple with some touches of gold and brown to help blend in the hardware in the land. It should make the land feel a little bit more alive. They are, however, not going to be repainting the gold Astro Orbiter but will be repainting the Star Tours building and hopefully the Star Tours mural.

Finally, the new Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters will be opening March 17th right across the way from Star Tours.

Alex Newborn
Alex is a lifelong fan of the Star Wars movies and everything Disney, so his obsession with Star Tours comes as no surprise. Born in 1970, Alex visited Walt Disney World for the first time in 1975, and saw the original Star Wars film in its first theatrical run in 1977. He returned to Disney in the 80’s and the 90’s… riding STAR TOURS (twice!) on one fateful day in 1991. He has yet to visit Disney in the new millennium, waiting for both his children to be the required 40″ tall to ride STAR TOURS. “What I’d really like to see is a Tour chartered for the planet New Bornalex,” says Alex with a smile. The planet, mentioned first in Cloak of Deception, is a Tuckerization of Alex’s name, an honor bestowed on him in print by author Jim Luceno. Alex is currently at work on a partial realisation of his childhood Disney-in-miniature wish– he is constructing a hyper-accurate 1:18 scale Star Tours diorama to showcase his collection of park-exclusive action figures. In the meantime, Alex is always on the lookout for more STAR TOURS video or audio files, and other STAR TOURS memoribilia. Alex also is our site’s researcher, and comes with never seen before goodies, for your entertainment. Give him a round of applause guys.
