Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

Welcome back for more fantastic Disney Trivia!  Thanks again to Jodi from +Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from +Heidi's Head, and +Mike Ellis for co-hosting!

Space Mountain is one of my absolute favorites at Walt Disney World!  It was the FIRST roller coaster in the parks and probably my favorite mountain (it's a tough call, but I really think it's my first choice!)

Did you know:

The first passengers to ride Space Mountain were NASA astronauts Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, and Jim Irwin in January 15th, 1975.

Not everyone got the message that this indoor ride as actually a coaster and many expected it to be more like Peter Pan!  What a shock that must have been!


  1. How cool that the first people to ride it were astronauts! Great trivia!

  2. I did not know that! And yeah, I bet some people were totally shocked!

  3. That is so cool that REAL astronauts got to ride it first, before all the amateurs had their turn! :) Love how Disney thinks of EVERYTHING!

  4. I didn't know astronauts were first to ride, how cool.

  5. That is cool that the first people into "space" were astronauts!! Disney's attention to detail has no end!
