Space Mountain is 31 years old today, Happy Birthday! A great attraction that’s still very popular today. Try and get on Space Mountain after the evening parade, good luck, it seems everyone wants one last ride thru space.
First up to help celebrate is a parking lot flyer daring you to “Race thru Space Mountain” on Disneyland's newest attraction. Are you ready for your "journey into the black void of infinite space"?
This is the cover of the flyer, the Space Mountain page is actually the back page.
First “E” tickets with Space Mountain appearing on them, from June 1977. Within a year, the words "Roller Coaster Type Attraction" would be added next to "Space Mountain" on the tickets.
First Disneyland “Your Guide” book with Space Mountain on the cover. Check back Bonus Sunday for the entire guide.
Neat little drawing on the inside cover.
Tomorrowland page of the guide showing the ”new” Space Mountain.
Great cover of the Summer 1977 Vacationland. This edition includes great articles on; Space Mountain, The Rescuers, “Disneyland’s Own Wild West Chorus Line”, Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn & more. Check back on Bonus Sunday for the entire issue.
Lastly from Spring 1975, Walt Disney World’s Vacationland. Space Mountain of course was in Florida first. A somewhat different ride than Anaheim’s with single in-line seating and two separate tracks within the Mountain. Want to see the whole issue? Sure, I’ll have it on Bonus Sunday as well.
Tomorrow: “Take me out to the ball game” in what year? It’s the Angels Vs. White Sox (hint: The Angeles will soak the Sox 5 to 0)
