I've had an idea in my head regarding Disneyland/World rides since I started getting addicted to Phineas and Ferb. Among the many reasons why I love the show, the crazy things they build in their backyard is high on the list.

With that in mind, I wanted to create a compact and overloaded version of classic Disney rides and their surrounding themes, with one thing on top of the other and everything connected together in the same structure.

I started off with this piece of concept art by John Hench for the basic shape of the building. Then I incorporated the Monorail, Astro Orbiter and the Peoplemover into the design, as well as elements from the different tomorrowlands around the world (and past versions of it).

I struggled to get away from my usual super-saturated look, and tried going with a more neutral color scheme (even though it's still pretty colorful) that had a bit of a 50's/60's feel.
I'm not sure how many of my original intentions I ended up accomplishing, but regardless, I'm really happy with the result =)

I do plan on making more rides... hopefully it'll happen

Tomorrowland was always a favorite of mine when I was a kid, especially space mountain. Spectacular combination, I really enjoyed this artistic idea. :judge: :)

I've been trying to put my finger on what it is about the 'Disney TomorrowLand' aesthetic I love so much. That sort of retro / art deco / space grandeur that doesn't exist anywhere else. Whatever it is, you nailed it. I love how you worked everything in together without losing any of the individual rides characters. Lovely muted pastel colour scheme too.
