You are at Home!
When Space Mountain opened it was the first computer-controlled thrill ride and the first Disney attraction to use computers in its design.
Space Mountain’s building is 200 feet in diameter and 118 feet high and has the capacity to put nearly 2,000 people an hour on its adventure through space!
According to an official Disneyland press release from 1969, the Haunted Mansion cost $7 million to develop and build. That translates to roughly $45 million today.
Look for the Hidden Mickey in the ballroom scene. The Hidden Mickey moves, but it can almost always be seen in the plates!
BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN RAILROAD
What was the inspirations for Big Thunder Mountain’s rock formations? It was the “hoodoos” of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. And the spires on Big Thunder Mountain are TALL. The largest is 104 feet tall!
Hidden Mickeys are hidden throughout the park by Imagineers with unique things in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head. One is hidden in the large gears on the first hill as part of a mining machine. Cacti can be found in the shape of Mickey’s head as well.
The Cantina is powered by Hyperdrive (of course), and from time to time that hyperdrive tends to overload. You’ll know it’s happening when the lights start to flicker and DJ Rex powers down!
For the soundtrack inside Oga’s Cantina, Walt Disney Imagineering commissioned musicians and composers from around the world to craft original music for a galactic playlist.
