    Why would that be a helipad when the actual Helipad is less than 100 meters away by the tram stops.

    Classify this one as a great Disneyland myth.

    Re: That empty area in the Space Mountain Que

    Technically, there is enough space to land a helicopter there, but, while I'm not a helicopter pilot so I don't know for sure, I doubt that is enough space to SAFELY land a helicopter there.

    But I'm pretty sure it IS an alien landing port, however, you didn't hear it from me.

    I think you're not too far off. The theme of Space Mountain is a spaceport, so a landing pad of some sort makes sense for theming.

    Yes I am, but it looks more like a gun sight than a heliport, imo. And where is the telltale H?

    I think they should just remove the roof and turn the theater back into an amphitheater.

    That area was painted with the landing pad as part of the 2005 refresh to try to disguise the fact is is just an open area. I don't know why anyone would put an actual helipad there as it isn't exactly convenient to reach in an emergency.

    Re: That empty area in the Space Mountain Que

    Interesting view from above, Poisoned. And yep, that area used to be open, and you could look down to the level below. I worked Space back in the early 80s and also Magic Journeys when it came over to Anaheim and showed on the Space Mountain stage. I liked it the way it was. Okay....there I go again....the way it was.... Sorry.

    I remember this stage, and I remember seeing a show there! (though I don't remember what the show was...)

    I wish they'd just get rid of the theatre, already.

    I've been up there way too many times to count, and I don't believe that area is large enough for a medi helicopter and its rotor span.

    I always figured that the markings there were a tribute to the original pre 1967 Tomorrowland 'Flight Circle' which was located there. I can't figure how to insert links using my phone but you can find pics of the area over at Daveland.
