We’re not exactly sure what ‘Plus Ultra‘ will translate to when the movies is released but in the real world, ‘Plus Ultra‘ is Latin for “further beyond”. This movie release has been so exciting for a lot of people especially since “The Optimist” game that started several years ago at the 2013 D23 is apparently still going on in the form of the “Stop Plus Ultra” movement. Check out the video that you heard in this episode:
On the flip side, the Plus Ultra Society has their own website (plusultrasociety.com). When there, you are greeted by an image of ‘It’s A Small World’, some morse code and the Plus Ultra logo. The Morse code translates to coordinates (40.745338, -73.837613). If you loom that up in Google Maps, it is the exact location of where the ‘It’s A Small World’ attraction was setup at the 1964 World’s Fair.
Double-clicking on the +U icon at the bottom will reveal a “password” entry box. If you enter WED4221964 you log in as “Walt Disney” and you get to see many of the same images that we got to see at the D23 Expo a couple of years ago.
By the way, the Tomorrowland app that Heyzen talks about in this episode from D23 is still available in the iTunes App store (sorry, Android users). It is described as:

Explore the mystery of The “1952” Collection that inspired the new movie from the director of The Incredibles and the creator/writer of Lost which takes as its title the word that encapsulates Walt Disney’s stirring brand of futurism: TOMORROWLAND. The “1952” Collection contains materials that speak to almost every aspect of Disney’s futurism. However, as you shall read and hear, the collection is, at best, an unreliable narrator to its own significance. Among the many questions begged by the “1952” collection: Is this just a bunch of random stuff thrown together? Or do these items share a common, meaningful purpose, perhaps elements of some heretofore unknown Disney endeavor?
