Jeff Suess, Author, Tomorrowland: The Past, Present, and Future of Disney’s Most Changed Land. About the book: When Disneyland opened in 1955, Tomorrowland re¬flected Walt Disney’s optimism for a great big beautiful tomorrow with the promise of atomic age technology and everyday rocket trips to the moon. Then the present caught up to the future, so Walt had to tear it down and start again. To stay ahead, Tomorrowland has been upgraded and redefined for each new generation, from the New Tomorrowland in 1967 to the boldly different Discoveryland, and beyond.
