Today we have the return of the Pics and Pins segment to GDP, it seems like its been a while… Here we go, Pics and Pins of Magic Kingdom’s Space.
An Imagineer working on the new interactive queue area of the attraction, in the area that used to be the Star Corridor, that takes guests under the train tracks.
It also seems that the two astronauts are gone from the attraction in the Space Station “scene” of the lift hill.
On to the pins…
First we have a pin by FedEx with Space Mountain above it, this represents the FedEx era of the attraction. A lot of pins/buttons for Space Mountain feature Mickey, Donald, and Goofy riding the space shuttle ride vehicle… 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. The 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. Since Lilo and Stitch debuted in 2002, Stitch has seemed to become the “unoffical” mascot of Tomorrowland and sometimes even Space Mountain.
That is it for today… Stay Tuned the rest of this week for more Pics and Pins features on the different Space Mountains and such… I hope you enjoy.
