Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The fan-favorite ride opened at Magic Kingdom in January of 1975, making it the oldest active roller coaster in Florida!
Next to Space Mountain is the Space Mountain gift shop, filled with various toys, apparel, and merchandise. However, the Space Mountain gift shop recently closed to Guests for construction.
Now, thanks to bioreconstruct on Twitter, we can see how construction is progressing and can see a glimpse at new elements being added.

More on Space Mountain
Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Located in Tomorrowland, this indoor roller coaster takes Guests on a journey into space as they zoom past stars, planets, and more.
Walt Disney World describes this Tomorrowland attraction as:
Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.
Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!
