This is part of the Designer Mug Series, one of the things I did with my actual name on it (very exciting). I had carte blanche to do whatever I wanted, as long as it related to both Disneyland and WDW.
Well, it’s me, and I couldn’t do EPCOT, so in my head the next best thing was Tomorrowland. Given the opportunity again, I would probably do something with the Tiki Room — but I still like what I came up with.
I wanted to commemorate the land’s better days….
I was rather in a hurry, so I had to limit the detail. I kept everything fairly simple, in both color and design. My first idea was to use the World Clock from “old” Tomorrowland in Disneyland….mostly because the shape seemed serendipitous in relation to my mug. I also made use of the Skyway and Rocket to the Moon.
Finally I inserted some favorite Disney phrases, because I could.
From the Disneyland TV show: “(Tomorrowland) A promise of things to come.”
Meet the Robinsons (among other sources): “Keep Moving Forward.”
Walt Disney/Horizons: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
Space Mountain Exit Queue: “In the future, you may find yourself off world.”
Carousel of Progress: “There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day.”
(While random, I always loved that Space Mountain quote. It made me feel very immersed in the whole ride experience.)
Celeste – where/how can we buy one of your Tomorrowland Mugs????
Hi! I have a couple of these mugs and just love them!! Do you know if they are still available for purchase? I believe I bought them a few years ago, so I wasn’t sure. One of them got knocked over and cracked recently and I’d love to replace it. Great design!!
Thanks for the comment! They’ve been off the shelves for a few years now:( I actually get emails from time to time from people who have accidentally broke theirs too. Wish I had bought more of them!
Aww, I have been searching for this mug for 2 years….. Grrr. The lyrics are the perfect thing at Breakfast or with tea after a hard day. I love your design!
