I'm just happy that at least there's SOME music in WDW's Space Mountain...

BTW, I just found this video. It has the clearest audio out of the videos I've seen, check it out!

I really like it! It's also difficult to judge hearing it out of context. Looking forward to riding it in November!

I'm totally digging it. I always thought WDW's Space Mountain was better than Disneyland's even without the music, now it's even better.

Yeah, I'm still anxious to ride it next week. Hopefully it'll sound better in person. And even if it doesn't, I'm still content with the fact that the layout wasn't touched. :)

^ Yeah, I mean, that's the real important thing we have to remember. They very well *could* have done a full rehab, ripped out that awesome layout, and given WDW the "Anaheim Treatment." Ick.

I rode Space Mountain last night with the new audio and I have to say that I'm not a fan. The dome now sounds like a big techno mash up; there's just so much noise in there now.

I thought our Space Mountain was just fine the way it was, but whatever I still love the ride

I think that the new soundtrack is pretty nice! It has a good beat that you could dance to. Although it's not fully orchestrated (I do love a good orchestral piece), I think that this soundtrack will work very effectively with the ride without really adding too much of a 'plot', so to speak, as the Disneyland soundtrack seems to do. The 'tag' at the end that they borrowed from Disneyland at the end of the piece does a nice job at tying the ride back to the whole 'Space Mountain brand' (and the fact that that particular theme is played on the exit ramp!) while allowing the song (and the ride) to maintain it's uniqueness.But most importantly, it's simple and catchy, and really, that's all that it needs to be for people to enjoy it.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Judging from what I've been hearing about the new sound, it sounds like (no pun attended) the music is coming from speakers placed from around the track's layout and not from speakers inside the car. Now why couldn't Six Flags Magic Mountain have done that with their Terminator: Salvation ride?

The more I see and read about Star Port 75's new audio, the more I wish that perhaps Star Port 77 would do something similar. Don't get me wrong- I consider DL to be my home park, and I'm looking forward to GG next month... but the audio on the trains is enough to cause a hemmorage due to the volume. If I want an ear-ache, I'll go find a Vekoma SLC.

The way it was announced out is, by FAR, the best thing I've seen in a long time from Disney as far as promotion of an attraction is concerned. Using the '1955 DL style poster and graphics' fits so well with the re-themed Star Port 75's theming. If there were any way to go back and 'plus' the existing Star Ports, I'd be first in line to do so- there is something timeless and historical about the way Disney did the revisions to the original that really does shield it from being 'outdated'.

Kudos to Disney for making sure that their famous Mountain doesn't go flat!
