In an unexpected twist that sparked the imaginations of Disney enthusiasts, rumors began circulating about Disneyland and a move to Michigan. The idea seemed crazy, Disneyland or Disney World leaving their popular location with fans speculating about what could prompt such a drastic change for the iconic theme park.

Disneyland, often referred to as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” is a special theme park that sees thousands of guests coming to experience Disney magic. Disneyland has captivated audiences of all ages since its opening in 1955. While the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, holds a special place in the hearts of many, the magic has spread globally with several Disney parks around the world, each offering a unique and fantastical experience.

Disneyland Resort features two theme parks—Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Disneyland Park, with its Sleeping Beauty Castle, takes guests on a journey through classic Disney tales, while California Adventure offers a taste of the state’s diverse landscapes and culture.

Disneyland Park is home to classic worlds and attractions that Walt Disney himself created. Adventureland, Frontierland, and Fantasyland are all classic lands that offer a variety of attractions, from the thrilling Indiana Jones Adventure in Adventureland to magical attractions like Peter Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland, “it’s a small world,” Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion and many more attractions. Tomorrowland is a futuristic realm that showcases Disney’s vision of tomorrow, featuring iconic attractions like Space Mountain and the innovative Star Tours.

Walt Disney himself created Tomorrowland, and this land has been recreated by Walt Disney Imagineers all across the globe. Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort, Tokyo Disneyland at Tokyo Disney Resort, Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris Resort will all see Tomorrowland. However, the original Tomorrowland seems to be struggling to keep pace with its counterparts.

In a social media post, Disneyland Park guests talk about the broken signs in Tomorrowland and compare Tomorrowland to “the Detroit of Disneyland” due to this world “falling apart.”

“Tomorrowland is the Detroit of Disneyland”

Even the signs in tomorrowland aren’t working 😭

Of course, this got many fans talking about what an actual Disney theme park in Detroit could look like, but that’s not likely to ever happen. However, it should be noted that there is even a fan page dedicated to Disneyland in Michigan. It says it’s supposed to open in 2027, but we all know that this hasn’t been confirmed by Disney.

If Disney ever did decide it wanted to build a new theme park, there’s no doubt that they’d be able to find a home and be welcomed in Michigan.

Wear and tear on Disneyland attractions and worlds is an inevitable aspect of the ongoing operation of the theme park. As millions of Disneyland guests from around the world flock to experience the magic each year, the various attractions, immersive worlds, and infrastructure undergo a continuous cycle of use, maintenance, and occasional refurbishment to ensure they remain safe, enjoyable, and true to the Disney standard.

Disneyland’s outdoor attractions are exposed to various weather conditions. Continuous sun exposure, rain, and temperature fluctuations contribute to the natural wear and tear of structures, paint, and materials.Disneyland carefully preserves and maintains classic attractions that hold sentimental value for guests. The challenge lies in balancing the preservation of nostalgia with the need for ongoing updates to ensure safety and relevance.

  1. Please, God forbid that this aberrant company should establish a ‘place’ in Pure Michigan!

  2. Please do not come to Michigan.Leave are kids alone.

  3. This would be a dream come true!!! Please come to Michigan so we don’t have to fly either to California or Florida!!

  4. These Liberal MORANS here would welcome it with open arms.It would also be the DOWN FALL of this state.

  5. Why Detroit? it’s busy enough there I hate the traffic when I have to drive thru uggh why not little more north

  6. Build either on Bobalo Island, or build further North in a much nicer City like Lansing or Owosso, but not in Detroit, Detroit has turned into a run down ghetto, & building in Detroit would make the Disneyland Park’s character a bad image.

  7. Put it between Lansing and Ann Arbor. That way all of the college kids can bleed more money from their parents for Disney trips.

  8. SeeJoseph mandrona
    Why in the world are you thinking of moving to Detroit. In Michigan most the people who live hear try and not go there. for one reason alone you could only use it only half a year because of the winter. Another reason is the poor highway sistum. Let alone the city itself.
    I love Michigan but didn’t put you kingdom here

  9. Keep your Satanic agenda against children out of Michigan

  10. Bugger off you mate morons. Satanic company? Did you pull that out of your fantasies book the bible? The only satanic thing in Florida is the state government and desantnuts. If Disney found away to put even a seasonal smaller version here it would be welcomed by the majority. You don’t likely then move. Because of that fascist government in the sun shine state, we here in Michigan have pick up an influx of its citizens doing an exodus to Michigan. We’ll take them and you haters can take their place in Florida. 🙂

  11. Main attraction could be. Frozen !! A water we have a large amount for warmer weather. Are children went when we lived in Ca yrs ago. It was a wonderful time. Everytime we went

  12. Disney needs to keep their pedo park OUT of Michigan. We don’t need the political “WOKE” crap that comes along with a place that USED to be a FAMILY friendly park.

  13. Can’t anyone spell or use proper grammar anymore? “poor highway sistum” and “who live hear” should be “who live here.” There are more errors Joseph, but I just give up on you. Joseph mandrona, “MORANS” from David. An occasional error can be overlooked, but sometimes it is more than I can tolerate.

  14. Please don’t forget the possessive pronoun, “our,” not “are”. Example, our stats, not are state. These cannot possibly be genuine responses. The repeated errors make it look false. I do not understand the Far Right’s issue with Disney. It makes no sense at all. Please note…Walt Disney was Pinot exactly a Hollywood liberal himself.

  15. I am not a “grammar police”, but using the wrong words or spelling can give a different meaning or direction. The proposed or planned (if true or not) Tomorrow Land by the Disney Management is a welcome news to me. As far as I am concerned Disney research every project they proposes. To me it’s all about the jobs and economy it will generate.

  16. I think putting a Disney park here in Michigan would be so cool. That way people wouldn’t have to travel just to go to Disney World or Disney Land. I welcome the idea. I don’t have kids, but I went to Disney World for my first time in 2021, and I loved it. I hope they do bring a Disney park to Michigan, but put it in a different city instead of Detroit.

  17. The problem with Florida is DeSantis not Disney. Think about the revenue and jobs that would be created. Those people would need housing and would also be eating in restaurants, shopping in our stores, staying in hotels which would all need employees. Why wouldn’t we want Disney.

  18. I would love to have Disney land to come to Michigan but not Detroit. Somewhere in the Middle of the state where we all can enjoy the travel to get there.
