Space Mountain Full Ride-Through with New Audio and Sound Effects, Best Friends Pet Resort Preview – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We were able to ride Space Mountain yesterday (below left), there is now music on 60 speakers throughout the ride – it isn’t an onboard ride track. There are also whooshing sounds that happen as you pass certain areas of the ride. We also noticed a spider web projection on the building, I have not seen this for a number of years – the last time being the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party from a couple of years back.

This new attraction artwork featuring “Starry O Phonic” sound (below, left) was posted on the Disney Parks Blog and has left many Disney fans speculating if this art will be for sale or displayed in some form.  I personally find the artwork to be the highlight of the new addition.  The ride had stopped temporarily while we were in the queue (below, right) and we took a few photos.  If we’d just been a couple of minutes earlier we’d have been stuck on the ride!

Video #1 – Space Mountain Full Ride-Through with New Audio 8/30/10 – Space Mountain has music, this is the full ride-through with it (but we have a video just of a speaker outside of the ride where it’s more easily heard). The music is not on the vehicles (Our pre-rehab Space Mountain ride-through can be viewed HERE).

Video #2 – Space Mountain – New Audio Loop Direct From Speaker 8/30/10 – Space Mountain now has music (not on the vehicles, but from speakers), we went to a speaker to record a loop of it.

Video #3 – Wedway People Mover (TTA) at Night, with New Space Mountain Ride Music 8/30/10 – The People Mover at night, and during the Space Mountain portion you can hear the new ride music!

The Kennel Clubs across property will be closing in the next couple of days to make way for Best Friends Pet Care.  I will miss seeing the dogs being led by their pet owners (or the other way around) from the different facilities.  The Epcot Kennel Club (below left and right) is one of 5 kennels across property that will be closing.

Photos of a dog and a cat grace the walls of the soon-to-close Epcot kennel club (below, left). Behind the front desk,  the ownership of Best Friends is noted on the wall (below, right).

We took a look outside of the new Best Friends facility (below, left). The prices have gone up substantially – and I’m not sure how guests will be getting there if they want to walk their dog while at the parks. The one thing we noticed was that the kitty condos are not much priced from other similar places around Orlando, but the kennel costs are significantly higher than what has been in effect at the park facilities. A giant bone sits near the entrance to the new Best Friends Pet Care (below, right).

A cat’s face with whiskers emerges from the building (below, left) while a fire hydrant sits nearby. The dog bone (below, right) in a closer photo.

Grass is growing from the outside walls (below left and right). It reminded me of a project we had at the Epcot  Flower and Garden Festival this year with hanging plants – taken to a much larger scale. I wonder how they will mow the wall? 🙂

A fire hydrant is placed near what appear to be decorative doghouse fronts (below, left). Paw prints grace the tops of the buildings (below, right). Prices for indoor dog daycare range from $27 for over 6 hours in one day to $37 overnight ($34 for resort guests). There are also indoor/outdoor options, vacation villas, and VIP luxury suites that include a flat screen TV and bedtime story – and those will run closer to a value resort price nightly (between $69 and $76, depending on whether the owner is a resort guest).
