Space Mountain Theme Music (Original) and Commercial (1977)

Obviously I’ve got a thing for Space Mountain. It opened at Disneyland in 1977, just 2 damn days after Star Wars came out. The Starcade opened on the same day. That’s destiny for you.

The original music was changed in 1996 (listen here) and again when the ride was completely refurbished in 2003 (listen to the current soundtrack here).

Before the remodel, people waiting in line at a certain section could actually look in to the ride area and see, dimly, the rockets whooshing by. It was too dark to make out much more (that made it even more awesome), but I remember an infamous asteroid that shot across the sky occasionally. All the kids would point it out every time it went by. It looked exactly like a giant chocolate chip cookie.

Thanks to SoundsOfDisneyland and SoCalCoaster521 for the videos.
