Towering high above the Tomorrowland sky its hard to ignore the architectural wonder of Walt Disney World' s most popular attraction, 'Space Mountain'.

A signature ride that's worthy of its accolade of headliner, Space Mountain sends riders into orbit, through the dark recesses of the galaxy and back to earth all in the space of a few minutes.

Entering Space Mountain, windows appear to look out into the universe, providing a sensation of walking through space and the anticipation of a spine-tingling adventure -- a dark ride through space.

Guests board six-passenger trains that rocket through tunnels of flickering neon lights, then begin a rapid descent via a series of twists, turns and sudden drops along an intricate and dark track.

The spatial-effects lighting, sprinkling the inner-heavens with galaxies of stars, darting meteors and glowing space vehicles, sets the stage for an adventure as close to a cosmic voyage as most people will ever experience.

Tips & Fun Facts

If you don't want to ride Space Mountain but still want to catch a sneak peak, ride the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. It goes right through. Alternatively, wait it out in the Tomorrowland arcade as riders exit via here.
If you are going to Space Mountain first at rope-drop, go to the end of Main Street, turn right past the Plaza Restaurant, & go up to the rope barrier at the Plaza Pavilion. You will then have a head start on those waiting at the bridge from the hub.
If your child isn't tall enough to ride, ask the Cast Member for a 'Mousernaut in Training' certificate.
The more weight you have in the vehicle, the faster it will go.
