Location: Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom
Time is a funny thing. It's always there no matter
where we go and no matter what, everyone looks at time differently.
In fact, when Disneyland first opened up in 1955, the idea of time
wasn't as futuristic in Tomorrowland as one may have believed. Walt
and his Imagineers decided to focus on the futuristic year of 1986.
Fairly quickly, the vision of tomorrow became a
thing of the past and the Imagineers had to recreate what the future
may look like. The same problem occurred in the Magic Kingdom when
Tomorrowland first opened its doors and eventually in 1994 New
Tomorrowland opened up not to represent what the future may be, but
what the future could be.
So where are we going with this? Since the idea of
the new Tomorrowland wasn't centered around a specific time, the
entire area became time in a weird sort of way.
While walking through Tomorrowland pay close
attention to what you are walking by, but more importantly, what you
are walking on. Here you may notice that the ground consists of
various gears scattered throughout the land. The reasoning behind
this is the fact that the entire idea of the land works like the
inside of a clock:everything works together while all focusing on
the idea of time:
