The first ride visible in Tomorrowland at Disneyland in California, is Astro Orbiter. It's also the first ride you come to at Discoveryland at Disneyland Paris (Discoveryland being their version of Tomorrowland). In the other parks, their versions of this attraction are slightly more central and often raised above the main concourse.
Each version of the attraction has a slightly different name: Astro Orbiter (Disney World); Astro Orbitor (Disneyland); Orbitron (Hong Kong Disneyland); Orbitron, Machines Volantes (Disneyland Paris); Star Jets (Tokyo Disneyland). The newly-opened Shanghai Disneyland...
The very first themed area of all Disney theme parks in Main Street USA. At the top of Main Street is the Town Square and I thought I'd focus on the attractions available in this area.
The very first attraction is, of course, the Railroad which has a station looking over Town Square. Guests enter through underpasses running underneath the Railroad station into Town Square. This is the case in all the Disney theme parks except Disneyland Tokyo.
I'll cover the Railroad in another post as it tours around the parks, passing through many different lands.
