“You’re Intergalactic Adventure Awaits!”
Space Mountain is one of the most beautiful sights within the realm of the Disney Universe. It’s a spire of hope, excitement, and adventure that continues to call us back time and time again.
Throughout the years, we’ve seen a few big changes as we journeyed through the stars. World-renowned composer, Michael Giacchino, created a new score to replace that groovy surfer vibe we’ve all gotten to know so well. The Red Hot Chili Peppers rocked the cosmos with their limited time magic. Even Star Wars blasted its way to our galaxy with the ever popular, Hyperspace Mountain. Nevertheless, it’s great to have “Classic” Space Mountain back to visit for a while!
No matter the overlay, this beloved attraction has ingrained itself into any Disney fan’s identity. To celebrate it’s 40th year, I ventured into the world of Tomorrow and was greeted by plenty of fun. Bubbles painted the summer sky and it was impossible to not want to take a step away from the crowd to look up and see them glimmer under the warm light of the setting sun.
With peak season kicking into high gear, Tomorrowland was the perfect place to relax and cool off. Other than the joys of interstellar travel, Star Tours, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, and Space Mountain give us one very wonderful gift: Air Conditioning. Nothing beats whipping down the spires with a cool, refreshing breeze coming along for the ride.
Grab your sense of optimism and hop on the next rocket. There’s a whole realm of possibilities this summer to look forward to! Why not start with a trip to the mountain? Don’t forget to grab some popcorn on you’re way there.
