The east end of Fantasyland shared a border with the land of the future, and due to this proximity, there was a bit of themeing overlap. Some of the attractions in this area would be more at home in Tomorrowland, but were technically located across the Fantasyland demarcation line, including the Motorboat Cruise and the Fantasyland Autopia.
