Tomorrowland as we know is a themed land at five Disney Parks. As we all know, Walt Disney is a dreamer and holds a futurist view, just like Tony Stark’s father (who built Captain America’s shield). In fact, even a movie based on the themed land was made and the man, George Clooney, was the main lead.

In Walt’s own words: “Tomorrow can be a wonderful age. Our scientists today are opening the doors of the Space Age to achievements that will benefit our children and generations to come. The Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future.”
As a result, each version of the land is different from the various theme parks with the Disneyland in Paris calling is Discoveryland. Having been to Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida, this song, There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, will stick in your head once you spend enough time there as they keep it on a loop.
There is also hearsay that an attraction there that was supposedly haunted. The Peoplemover (now removed from Tomorrowland) was said to be haunted by the ghost of a teenage boy that tried to jump from the car as it was moving along the tracks. He was dragged under the car to his death. As he was being dragged he reached up to his girlfriend’s blonde hair. He is said to manifest himself usually to girls with long blonde hair who feel him tugging on their hair. There are many news sources that substantiate this claim. Check out this recent OC Register article.
