Now you just get a bunch of Astro-Orbitor pictures. Deal.
Figaro’s Exit Sign
As you exit the Village Haus Restaurant, you will see an image of Fiagro painted on the wall. He has a rope over his shoulder, which is connected to the illuminated exit sign, to give the appearance that his is pulling it along. I have heard a few different versions of the story, but the gist is that Disney’s Imagineers needed a clever way to obscure the fact that the exit sign was off center.
Some say the exit sign was placed off center because of a supporting beam inside the wall. Others have said that the murals were already painted before the exit signs were installed as part of the state’s fire code.
Space Mountain reopened in July 2005 after an almost two-year rehab. Though the track layout is the same, the rocket vehicles are new and the ride is faster, smoother, and darker.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong was a special guest at the reopening ceremony.
The original Space Mountain opened at Disneyland on May 27, 1977 and the new Space Mountain features “Space Station 77” on its interior logos.
The Mercury astronauts participated in the original grand opening ceremonies in 1977.
The new soundtrack was composed by Michael Giacchino (composer for The Incredibles).
Space Mountain is 118 feet high.
There are 42 speakers on each vehicle.
Tower of Terror elevator full of Dappers. This was literally THE BEST. :)
