Transition of Tomorrow

Guests at the Magic Kingdom park may notice several aesthetic changes in Tommorowland well ahead of the opening of the new Tron lightcycle coaster. The land appears to have started transitioning to a new paint scheme dominated by blues and white. Additionally, the unintentionally popular photo spot, "The Purple Wall"; has been updated with a new geometric design (shown here). Finally, the Little Green Alien merchandise kiosk has closed and removed in what is reported to be the first of several changes to unify the land with the cleaner aesthetic shown in the Tron lightcycle concept art.
