"In these extraordinary days we realize fully that the public is shopping more than ever for its box office fare. There is no compromise for 'selling' your attractions.
I am confident that the future will enable us to fill this bill." - Walt Disney
Main Street from the Emporium, where the old Wurlitzer shop and "The Legacy
of Walt Disney" once were, there used to be a corner exhibit called "Disneyland
Presents a Preview of Coming Attractions", later becoming "Disneyland
Corner: Space Mountain - February 1976
<"Launch control, this is Space Venturer, go ahead"> You and your fellow astronauts board rocket cars on a space station launching platform, orbiting high above the earth. As your journey begins, you'll race through a vast, manmade solar field, energizing your rocket car for its dazzling plunge into SuperSpace. Hold on tight! You're on your way, as you blast off into the void of the universe! Swooping around the giant, glowing, geodesic laser satellite, you become engulfed by a spectacular spiral nebula, with flashing comets and whirling galaxies. This is SuperSpace penetration! At Walt Disney World in Florida, guests are already experiencing the sensation of a Space Mountain Adventure. You will share these sensations when Space Mountain opens at Disneyland.
Ascending the launch portal, aimed at a starry vista of the cosmos overhead. Blasting off on a breathtaking, super-fast race through outer space, your body actually feeling the forces of "G". Zooming down the reentry portal, feeling the blast of hot air and rocked by a sonic boom! Yes, you will experience what is truly, the ultimate thrill ride attraction. So climb aboard, fasten your seatbelt, and prepare to blast off when Space Mountain opens in June 1977 in Tomorrowland! <Music out>
We surf out a lot of images, icons, gifs, photos and the like from all kinds of sources, and it's so easy to lose track of from whence one has downloaded an image, especially when you've seen it in more than one place. So, if we've used something of yours and we've failed to give you the proper credit for it that you deserve, kindly inform us so that we may remedy our omission. Nearly all of the images on this site can be copied or downloaded, so feel free to host them on your own servers and kindly refrain from direct-linking these images to your own blogs, message boards, sites, or MySpace pages.
Bandwidth pirates may sense a disquieting metamorphosis in images appearing on their sites.
Properly warned, ye be, says I.
