This morning, Disney released a new poster for Tomorrowland. Russ grabbed it before I was finished with breakfast, but I noticed something hidden within the image that is noteworthy – hence this post.

Ever since it was announced that director Brad Bird and screenwriter/producer Damon Lindelof’s secret 1952 project was to be titled Tomorrowland, Disney fanatics have speculated about what role the Disneyland park and Walt Disney himself might play in the film.
