Classic Space Mountain to Return to Disneyland June 1st

Get ready to initiate power transfer in 3…2…1… when the classic Space Mountain returns to Disneyland June 1! Just days after we mark the 40th anniversary of this Tomorrowland favorite, space travelers will blast off once again for their intergalactic adventure.

A variation of a concept Walt Disney developed in the 1960s, Space Mountain first opened at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in 1975, and construction on Space Mountain at Disneyland began soon after. The attraction went on to become a guest favorite, seeing special themed versions such as Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Hyperspace Mountain.

You are clear for launch starting June 1 with the return of Space Mountain at Disneyland.

Tomorrowland Arcade at Magic Kingdom Closing Permanently

Tomorrowland Arcade

The Tomorrowland Arcade, the video game arcade, located in the Magic Kingdom has permanently closed.

Located at the exit of Space Mountain, February 9th was the final day of operation for the arcade.  There has been no indication of what may replace it.

Changes in Florida laws regarding bans on Internet Cafes that may potentially be applied to video game arcades that dispense prizes are speculated to be behind the decision to close. Disney has not made any official comment on the issue.

It is also expected that Disney will also close similar prize counters and games involving clawing for prizes at the resort hotels.
