I had the chance to ride Space Mountain yesterday (3 times). It isn’t much different than before, I actually thought it’d be a lot darker than it was. But it’s still one of my favorite attractions, as it has been for 30 years.
Before the Space Mountain photos, I’m putting up a couple of pictures of the giant Mickey Head currently at the side of the Contemporary for Christmas. It is a nice touch for the holidays, though I do miss the red and green lights that used to be added to the Contemporary each year.
On to Space Mountain. Again, it didn’t seem much different – more stars, just a tad darker and the queue area is enclosed now. I actually liked being able to see the People Mover from the queue and the awaiting riders in the queue line while on the ride, but it’s not a big change to me either way. The ride is still fun and I’m glad it’s open.
There is a video game to play while waiting in a portion of the queue (similar to Asteroids). We do have video here !
