Merchant of Venus Tomorrowland Photo

Tomorrowland Night Photo - Walt Disney World

Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom, especially at night, is my favorite land at Walt Disney World. It has three of my favorite attractions: Carousel of Progress, Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover, and Space Mountain. It has great background music, fun puns for restaurant and shop names, and details that I love–such as the palms and Sonny Eclipse. I also enjoy the neon, which I think is quite photogenic and adds to the ambiance.

All of these things easily help the land overcome the loses of the amazing Alien Encounter and Timekeeper attractions, and the general thematic misfire and lack of cohesiveness of the land. Those issues do push Tomorrowland just behind New Orleans Square in Disneyland as my overall favorite land, but second place isn’t too bad, all things considered. A replacement for Stitch’s Great Escape that captures the spirit and dark humor of Alien Encounter without the scares would push Tomorrowland back into first place.

Tomorrowland, with its swooping lines, is also great for the fisheye. While I love my Rokinon 8mm fisheye (check out my review of it), I plan on using it a lot less on our upcoming trips. I have found myself processing fewer and fewer fisheye photos, plus, I have the new Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, which will be getting a serious workout!

Technical details: Nikon D7000 and Rokinon 8mm Fisheye Lens. See our Disney Photography Guide for more photography equipment recommendations.
