Good morning! This day in Disneyland history, May 4th, 1977: Space Mountain opened in Disneyland.  Not to be confused with the official dedication and grand opening ceremony which happened a few weeks later on May 27th, 1977.   More...

Awesome info. We love this attractions. Never been on a different version but i'ld like to try them all. When my youngest was finally tall enough to ride we took him cause he loves roller coasters and he cried and cried. We couldn't figure out why he got so upset riding Space Mountain until one day he says "I don't want to go to outer space". He thought we were really launching into space and was terrified he was going to die because there wasn't any oxygen in space. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories.Β  - Bassplayerswife  342.0 #644 10:37AM

More from October 1955...the Mark Twain in some seriously shallow water 😁

Tagged in: Disney History  
So the reason that the water is so low is because when they first filled up the ROA they did not realize that the ground would absorb all of the water so they had to pour concrete just before the park opened to the public. Even after they poured the concrete, they had a hard time keeping water in the River because of absorption by the ground. It took them years to really keep the levels at at a normal level and a system that not only keeps water in there but also replenishes it when it gets low. - Dave  12659.7 #2 11:43AM

Does anyone remember the phone exhibit where Astro Blaster is now (and American the Beautiful was once upon a time).  It had phones hooked up to characters (you'd pick up a phone and a character would light up so you'd know who you got).  There were also rooms (with picture windows that looked out - right across from Star Tours - then Monsanto) where groups could call family members for free and all talk at once (ooohhhh) on speaker phones.  I remember thinking it was the coolest thing! - msdizmaui  643.1 #282 5:10PM
