    I think it would add some nice kinetic energy it the Tomorrowland part went around the circle it's on, but I doubt that it will.

    Good thought, I think they're counting on the Astro Orbiters being the kinetic energy when you see the sign

    As I said in the MK thread, keep expectations in check as they are reporting this based on what a Disney fan site has reported, which that site reported two weeks ago and no one in the community noticed.

    So I’m just saying, grain of salt.

    It would be great if this story wasn’t something fan submitted, but unfortunately that’s literally the business model for Just Disney, it seems.

    No way. I don’t believe this at all.

    Tesla has a huge financial mess right now. They don’t have the money to sponsor an attraction.

    More importantly, Tesla doesn’t do marketing. Seriously, they don’t have a marketing line-item in their budget. They don’t believe in marketing as a company. The fact that they get so much buzz is the most impressive part of Tesla (and Elon).

    This just screams fan theory. If anybody is going to sponsor the speedway, it’s probably a traditional automaker. GM would be the obvious choice (they already sponsor one attraction)

    Honda sponsors Autopia, but yeah, with GM sponsoring Test Track, they probably have the exclusivity as WDWs official auto sponsor.

    I don't understand why they would take the sign down if they didn't have the new one ready to be installed?

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    That's very minimalist.

    It's way cleaner than the old sign. The old sign had too much going on.

    It'll make Tomorrowland's aesthetic last longer, but at some point, we're going to move away from the Apple pearl-white minimalism as futuristic.

    I disagree. I think this sign is timeless.

    It looks like the outline of a watch.

    I like it, my home is minimalistic and modern, but for a theme park this is a bit bland for me.
    At least there is less to maintain, that is a plus, for Disney.

    If the Spires/Waterfalls were brought back, this would look a lot better. Will never happen though.
