Your Guide to Tomorrowland at the Disneyland Resort

| |

It’s no secret that Tomorrowland at the Disneyland Resort was one of Walt Disney’s favorite sections of the park. He was fascinated by space travel and all that the future could bring. Over the years, Tomorrowland has had to undergo some major renovations as the things of tomorrow quickly became the things of today. And presently, it looks quite a bit different than it once did as it now embraces more science fiction in an effort to remain current. Regardless of how it has changed over the years, there really is something for everybody. With that being said, here is your guide to Tomorrowland at the Disneyland Resort in California!

**The Disneyland Resort officially reopened to the public on April 30, 2021, and some experiences listed below have been temporarily suspended or modified due to the pandemic. Be sure to visit our official Disneyland reopening post for updated information to guide your vacation planning! 


 

Update… Disney has replaced FastPass and MaxPass with the brand new Disney Genie and Disney Genie+. The new system is very similar to Disneyland’s MaxPass as it is an add-on purchase allowing you to make “Lightning Lane” reservations throughout your day in the parks. There is also the option to purchase Individual Attraction reservations for select top-tier attractions. For more information, be sure to visit our guide. Happy Planning!
