 Best Post of the Day 5-4-14
Good morning! This day in Disneyland history, May 4th, 1977: Space Mountain opens in Disneyland.  Not to be confused with the official dedication ceremony which happened a few weeks later on May 27th, 1977.

Original 1977 commerical


The Disneyland Space mountain is the 2nd Space Mountain to be built in the world, the 1st being the one in WDW which opened in 1975. The idea for Anaheim's attraction originated in the mid 1960s, during Walt Disney's lifetime, as a way to energize the aging Tomorrowland. The project was shelved until the success of Space Mountain in Florida. Disneyland’s Space Mountain was designed by Bill Watkins and is different from the WDW design because of space limitations Disneylands Space Mountain is only about 2/3 the size of the one in Florida.

Space mountain Disneyland is 118, feet tall and 200 feet wide. The mountain is at the center of a 96,460-square-foot complex then containing a restaurant, an amphitheater and the “starcade”.  It took $20 million (some $3 million more then Disney spent to build the entire amusement park in 1955) and several refinements in computer technology to put the attraction where Disney wanted it in Tomorrowland.

According to Disneyland.disney.go.com: “Mercury 9 and Gemini 5 astronaut Gordon Cooper joined the Space Mountain creative team as a consultant. He wanted to make sure that the attraction incorporated information gleaned during NASA’s early space missions and that the overall experience give Guests a realistic feeling of actual space flight.
Thanks in part to Gordon Cooper’s valuable input, Space Mountain has remained a favorite attraction since its interstellar debut 37 years ago.”



Have YOU been on Disneylands Space Mountain? What do you think of it? Have you had the opportunity to enjoy another version from another park? How did it compare?

Thanks for reading, watching and listening! Hope you all have a SUPER Sunday!

I rode this the first time in July 1977.  I had no idea what the ride was like, since I could not see it from the outside.  Grandpa needed someone to ride with him, so they told me it's like Small World.  So I went.  I about died!  Took a few more years before I rode it again.  Now it's one of my favorites.  And although Grandpa is no longer with us, I have an awesome memory of riding this attraction with him for our first time!  β€οΈβ€οΈ - AZDisney  610.3 #297 7:56AM
I'm glad you hhave wonderful memories of your grandfather.  - ILuvSleepingBeauty  219.6 #1651 8:21AM

"Like small world"! πŸ˜‚ sounds like your grandpa has a great sense of humor! Thanks for sharing that with us! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 3:33PM
i never got to ride it in my younger days because i only went to dl 2 times from age 0-21, but i habeheard and seen videos of the older rockets that use to glow in the dark.I love space mnt . before the 50 th anniversary of disneyland space mnt had closed for a year a believe and had rebuilt the track and the support where reinforced deeper for more safety. the asteroid at the top of the lift is still therewith a huge hidden mickey crater on it although its dark now they dont shine light on it anymore but a got it on *gasps flash -this was before my mw days and didnt know better. today there is a hidden donald and a hidden mickey projection comet on the dome thats mega hard to find but am always happy to point them out when i ride with other mws. lol ok - pikarich  3779.0 #27 10:34AM
I'll have to look next trip! Thanks pikarich!  - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 10:51PM
Wow!! I did not know all of this! Thanks - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5193.5 #17 7:51AM
Space Mountain is very important to me. It's my favorite attraction in all of Disneyland. I've only been to Space MTN 77.The reason behind my love for the ride goes back to when I was a child. My late father and I had many discussions about Space, the stars, the planets,& space shuttles. Space Mountain is my connection to him. At Father's Day, the anniversary of his passing, his birthday & any other day, I always ride it in his honor. My dad also met with the original astronauts. He worked with the space program too. So I'm sure everyone can see how special this ride is to me. Its my connection to my dad. I also use it as my stress reliever. Since I don't drink, it's the best thing for me. Anyways, thanks for the post!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3710 3:40PM
Aww. Great that something so special in Disneyland is so close to your heart and it brings wonderful memories of your daddy πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5193.5 #17 7:06PM

Such a great post to see on MyFEED!!!  I've missed your awesome history lessons!  I didn't know Disneyland's Space Mountain was the 2nd one to WDW!!!  Informative post, as usual!!! I have been on Disneyland's version of Space Mountain and it unfortunately makes me dizzy, so I don't ride it very often.  I haven't been on any other versions of it.  Thanks so much for doing this and May the 4th be with you,   @@Duchess_SMK!!!  - zenderella  408.9 #495 7:36AM
So glad you enjoyed it Darlin! You're always so kind to me thanks for the encouragement! Bummer about the dizziness! I get like that with the teacups. 😷  - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 4:12PM
No worries as I love the other 3 mountains, especially the Matterhorn! And I love the tea cups, especially the lavendar one! Maybe try them sometime without spinning!  - zenderella  408.9 #495 8:25AM

The first time I rode Space Mountain with my mom and dad. They were divorced, but celebrated my 10th birthday together for me at the park. It was the only tkme my mom came with me to Disneyland. Since she passed in August, I tell her the night before we are going to Disneyland and I hope she ridea Space with my mini and I. Once we make it out of the tunnel, I say, "Here we go Mom".  May be silly but a new tradtion I have while there.  - LuvsTigger  1235.5 #119 7:03AM
Aww. How sweet. (((Hugs))) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5193.5 #17 7:48AM
That's so cute! Thanks for sharing that with us! 😍😘 - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:19AM
I have been to DL a few times before actually being there constantly and never once I knew this existed πŸ™ˆ until in 2010 my husband and I purchased our first AP and he took me on this ride. I didn't know what to expect but I loved it! Such a fun ride!  - KladiaDisneyNinja  266.8 #1117 7:44AM
Oh wow! So you just never ventured into tomorrowland? Glad you finally got to enjoy it! It IS super fun! I agree!  - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:22AM
I have but since the last time I was at DL was when I was 12 and the trip was with my parents, they always saw tomorrowland crowded so they stayed away from it and I never knew about SM. I was so happy I felt like a little girl going on her first Disneyland ride! - KladiaDisneyNinja  266.8 #1117 12:31PM
@LuvsTiggerIt is not silly at all!! We all have to have our traditions to  honor those that have passed. I'm sorry about your mom. Best ride to honor her!!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3710 2:03PM
As a young shoeshine boy, I recall watching....oh wait.. I envy @MickyLumboCM.  But I do remember when this opened and I still love this attraction to this day.  Although, I just made the comment the other day to some other MWers that I miss seeing the coasters go by while you were waiting in the queue. - DisneyDavidEMT  2018.4 #66 8:52PM

http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens.

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unForecast for week of Monday, April 13, 2015:

CROWD PREDICTIONSpring Break is winding down as Disney reduces hours this week. The MouseWait Historical Crowd Index shows mid-70s for this week which seems about right. Crowds will be lighter than last week with Friday and Sunday being the busiest days. - Admin Apr 14, 2015 12:04PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  373.0 #559 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6929 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  122.5 #3044 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  221.2 #1632 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  362.0 #581 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1437.5 #100 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  178.9 #2169 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1437.5 #100 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1437.5 #100 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  178.9 #2169 8:21PM
I'll sport my hotpants.  - Butterlina  1512.9 #95 11:54PM
