On to the pins…

First we have a pin by FedEx with Space Mountain above it, this represents the FedEx era of the attraction.pin288  pin781pin6920 A lot of pins/buttons for Space Mountain feature Mickey, Donald, and Goofy riding the space shuttle ride vehicle… pin19758 pin37982pin33954 Also, many pins in a "Park History” series feature Space Mountain as a milestone. As it is Disney’s first totally inside and in the dark rollercoaster, and only Disney’s second coaster, and Magic Kingdom’s first. pin43633  pin48564The attraction also features a FastPass system, and is one of the ONLY attractions to feature FastPass at ALL of its locations, from Disneyland to Magic Kingdom, and Paris to Hong Kong and to Tokyo, they all have FastPass. pin42035Since Lilo and Stitch debuted in 2002, Stitch has seemed to become the “unoffical” mascot of Tomorrowland and sometimes even Space Mountain. pin36049pin49762pin56542 pin57803
