One of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort is Space Mountain because I’ve dreamed of being an astronaut. This classic Disney attraction in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom Park opened on January 15, 1975. During many family trips, you would typically find me hanging out in the attraction queue listening to the out-of-this-world music loop. To commemorate this year’s anniversary, I visited the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. shop to survey some Space Mountain themed merchandise we offer at Disney Parks.
In the first image, I’m wearing a new shirt coming to the Disney Parks online store from January 25-31, 2016. Disney Design Group artist Richard Terpstra created the artwork for this retro-looking, ringer tee based on Space Mountain promotional artwork from the 1970s. To order this shirt starting January 25, please visit DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents. Please allow 3-5 weeks for delivery.
While at the shop, I discovered a variety of other shirts for adults and kids along with space-themed hats.
One of my favorite shirts features two astronauts riding Space Mountain. It reminded me of the astronauts once found outside the Florida attraction’s entrance.
Other items at the location include a frame, a space-themed Attractionista doll named Celeste, and artwork by Dave Perillo titled “Trip of Tomorrow Today.” The latter is being offered as a framed print, matted print and postcard.
Finally, there is a new Vinylmation mystery set called “Mickey and Friends in Space” coming to Disney Parks on January 29. This limited release set was designed by Disney Design Group artist Costa Alavezos. Once released, look for it in select merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
You may find and order select Space Mountain items using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. To download this app, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop.
