First Time on Space Mountain – The Interview

On my most recent to Walt Disney World, my daughter experienced Space Mountain for the first time.  This was the last attraction in Magic Kingdom that she had gotten over her fear of.  There are still some attractions that she still won’t go on.  As the years and trips build up, however, there are fewer and fewer attractions that she won’t go on.  She’s gone from a kid who wanted to do anything but wait in line to meet characters to a kid who wants to go attraction after attraction.  For today’s post, I decided to interview her about her first experience on Space Mountain.

November Trip Report – Day One Part Two – Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

After we finished dinner at Crystal Palace, four of our 10-person group left to go back to the hotel.  The remaining members stayed for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  For my family, this would be our second time attending the Christmas Party while, for the others, it would be their first visit.

For a good portion of the party, we were able to divide and conquer and everyone was able to go attractions that they wanted to go and see parades and fireworks shows that they wanted to see.

Space Mountain Trivia

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

Welcome to Tiggerific Trivia Tuesday hosted by three wonderful bloggers: Jodi at Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Mike at My Dreams of Disney, and Heidi at Heidi’s Head.  It’s a link-up that allows bloggers to share Disney trivia with their readers.  Some like to focus on Disney movies, others focus on Disney parks in general.  I like to focus on Disney attractions.  In past weeks, I’ve found little known nuggets of information at The Haunted Mansion and Spaceship Earth.  This week, I’m focusing on another iconic Disney attraction….Space Mountain.

Everyone knows that Space Mountain is one of the first completely enclosed roller coasters.  But, did you know that Space Mountain is the only Disney World attraction located outside the Walt Disney World Railroad loop.  Original plans had Space Mountain located where the Carousel of Progress is located.  Disney did not want to close the Carousel of Progress so Space Mountain was placed in its current location.

Guests enter the queue for Space Mountain on the theme park side of the railroad tracks.  Then, the queue takes guests underground and through the interactive queue.  This takes the guests to the resort side of the railroad tracks.  Upon completion of the attraction, guests goes through the same tunnel are returned to the Space Mountain gift shop and to the theme park side of the railroad tracks.

Thanks for joining me for this week’s Tiggerific Trivia Tuesday.  I’ll be back next week with another trivia tidbit.
