    Space Mountain Exit Question

    I heard from some people that this is the place to go if you need an answer to some crazy disney world question.

    When going up the moving walkway to exit Space Mountain there used to be a recording along the lines of...

    "In the future, messages will be sent through beams of light."
    or
    "In the future, messages will be sent on beams of light"

    I think it's 'through', a friend thinks it's 'on'.

    I know the rest of the quote is not entirely correct.

    Does anyone know what the exact quote was? Does anyone have a recording of it?

    It would be greatly appreciated if someone could clear this up. We have been debating this for months.

    I don't remember what the line is, but that dialog was from when FedEx sponsored the ride and the post-show speedramp was all about how packages were going to be sent in the future.

    Sounds about right...

    Never was a huge fan of the FedEx overlay... Does anyone know if/who is sponsoring the new Space Mountain refurb? I'm wondering if there's no corprate sponsor we may get a nice home of the future overlay similar to what it was like back in the 70's or even better bring back some of the AA's/scenes from Horizons, I'd just like to see a positive future message in there again...

    i've worked at Space for a year now and i've never heard a recording on the speedramp or heard of there ever being one. are you sure that quote isn't from Spaceship Earth? cauz that's where i've heard it.

    When you get the chance ask him about the old sets from the home of the future, I seem to recall someone mentioning part of it is still there in storage inside the mountain...

    There is a sign that says: "In the future, you might find yourself off-world..."

    first of all, the recording no longer exists....it has been gone for at least 4 years. But, when it was around it was "through beams of light" to the best of my recollection.

    I'm actually more curious how they're going to send packages on beams of light. (or through, whichever the case may be) Either one sounds fairly implausible.

    It's Tomorrowland, nothing has to be plausable.

    Re: Space Mountain Exit Question

    Trust me, the recording was what I said above. Me and my brother were getting off the ride like...5 years ago and we thought it was the awesomest, most random thing they could possibly say. So we rode again and I recorded it on my phone and kinda grew a weird obsession for it. Then next I went to Disney World it was gone and it was a sad day.
