    MORE VIDEO: Space Mountain cars testing - Astronauts are gone!

    Some recent YouTube videos I found.You can see some video of the rocket sleds testing - and look, the two upside down astronauts on the giant spaceship are gone!?

    Second video shows the work on the outside courtyard area - I HOPE that's a fountain they are placing, not just another tree planter!

    Re: Space Mountain cars testing - Astronauts are gone!

    if the astronauts were removed, it could be one of two reasons: thoroughly cleaning them or permanently out of the mountain. we'll see what happens.

    the rockets are the same. they just have a new paint job.

    I'm a big fan of the old rockets. It gets you into that awkward position, which makes the ride more thrilling.

    I wish they would have changed the cars, they are not as comfortable as the ones at DL.

    Re: Space Mountain cars testing - Astronauts are gone!

    We were just at WDW over Halloween weekend and took some photos of the construction too.

    I have a slideshow available here if interested. I can say I actually like the lime green color they are interjecting into the design. I really wish though they would adapt the side by side cars like Disneyland.

    I'm not sure about the lime green. I'm hoping it's for blacklight. Thanks for the photos!
