The scenes in Tomorrowland showing futuristic white buildings (including the one at the end with a building resembling a human eye) were shot on location at the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain, and then enhanced digitally. This neo-futuristic ensemble of buildings was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and built between July 1996 and October 2005 on the old Turia riverbed. The Turia's course had been re-directed to bypass the city after a catastrophic flood in 1957. See more »
When young Frank tests his jetpack prior to the 1964 World's Fair, he wears a jersey with Adidas-trademark triple stripes on the sleeves.

Despite that the opening credits for theatrical Disney films has been changed from "Walt Disney Pictures" to just "Disney" since 2011, the opening credit for this movie says "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" like the end credits of "The Lone Ranger" (2013) saying "Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films Presents".

Maybe expectations were too high: Brad Bird is a fantastic director, whether it's animation or movies, all his work has been top notch so far. Damon Lindelhof, though more hit and miss, has participated in some of the most impactful (scifi) work of recent years. And yes, the trailers were actually really cool. Also, maybe it was more aimed at children that I expected / wanted it to be. However this doesn't excuse two major faults in this movie: 1) pacing is incredibly slow. Nothing really ever actually happens. It's just 'there' the whole time and is quite remarkably boring at times. 2) It's quite idiotic in its moral. Yes the world is going to hell blablabla but, even if aimed at 6 year olds, there are better & more subtle ways to get the point across. So yes, very disappointed. Acting was good (good to see Hugh Laurie back); visuals were nice but, at the end of the day, I was pretty bored for 2+ hours.
