    I dig it. And look - not an ODV or other form of monetizing opportunity in sight.

        Surprised to see this.
        This area had been off limits to the general public since 1999 ... and is reopened as queue space.

        It's proof to me any big renovation to the entire land is years off. (What a surprise!!) .. and they are spending money on minor projects .... even if they get the bulldozer later down the line.

        Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

          I saw the new indoor queue yesterday, and it looks pretty nice. I like the streamlined and elegant look look. The look actually reminds me of the original, pre ‘98 Tomorrowland. I hope that they continue this look with the rest of Tomorrowland.
          Restore the PeopleMover!

              I think the new addition is nice. Adds another spot to cool down while waiting in line. Looks good!

                  Will those people who are wrong about how Disney management would NEVER spend the money to create the new Space Mountain indoor queue without an immediate plan to monetizing it, admit that they were flat wrong since there is now proof of that fact? Will they concede that Disney does spend money (not necessarily as frequently as they should) just to make areas of Disneyland nicer for guests? I'm not holding my breath in anticipation.

                    God, I hate to sound negative but its better than nothing but does it feel like an E ticket Q?

                    Its nicer than the outside, but is it hard to have like TV screens you look out on into space and see stars and see meteors and what not.
                    Happy Halloween!!!

                        Slightly off topic, but I rode Space twice last Tuesday and the smell from the bathrooms at the exit point was unbelievable. It was like you got off a space ship and landed on a hot garbage planet.

                            It's adequate. It could be better but it's not bad.

                              Queue is awesome I really love the look of it too. Glad to see them making improvements to the park. Between this, Small World, Adventureland Strollers, and the Alladin's Oasis change I am really happy someone in the park is making these changes.

                                Bring back the surf music from the 90's, I loved that soundtrack, especially the buildup from leaving the station to the first drop, that will always be what I remember most from Space Mountain, that and the awesome line where there were tvs showing intergalactic tv and walking by a window that looked in on the ride.

                                I'd be completely fine with that. I HATE that Florida got Alien Encounter first, which is ultimately what lead to it never making it over here. I'd kill to get a chance to experience that.

                                As for what this is actually about, while I wish we could get the Starcade back, dropping that horrible wait in the sun for one in a building with ac is fine by me.

                                  From the videos I've seen of the new Space Mountain Queue, it looks cool. It's too bad Promising Tomorrows and Star Tunnel Music weren't included.
