Tomorrowland Terrace

Tomorrowland Terrace as it appears today, with the stage in the down position.

Tomorrowland Terrace is a restaurant located in Tomorrowland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California that is notable for its unique concert stage, which hydraulically rises out of the ground. It opened with the new Tomorrowland in 1967. The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World has a similarly named restaurant called Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station, which was once called the Plaza Pavilion, and that park's current Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe was once known as Tomorrowland Terrace before the 1995 makeover.

History

Early years

The restaurant was sponsored by Coca-Cola from its opening in 1967 until Tomorrowland was redesigned in 1998. The stage's original large planters and space age spires were replaced with a retro-futuristic design to match the Jules Verne-like design of the new Tomorrowland.

In 2000, Tomorrowland Terrace was renamed Club Buzz, as it started hosted a show called "Calling All Space Scouts: A Buzz Lightyear Adventure." The 1998 designs were replaced with a Buzz Lightyear theme. A large sign was added above the stage with the words "Club Buzz" and a small sign with the subtitle, "Lightyear's Above the Rest." When the show ended, the Buzz Lightyear theme was mostly removed along with the large sign. The smaller sign that formerly read "Lightyear's Above the Rest" now reads "Club Buzz."

In 2006, the stage was redesigned again, and is an updated version of the original 1967 design, with large bowl-shaped planters and tall spires, with colors of white, silver, and blue, going with the Tomorrowland and Space Mountain theme. The restaurant and stage reverted to the original name; Tomorrowland Terrace.
