Everyone knows that a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando or the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, would not be complete without buying a few souvenirs to take back home.

From shirts, headbands, cups, and silverware to pins, costumes, swords, and toys, Guests can find just about anything when visiting the shopDisney website or any of the numerous attraction gift shops. At Walt Disney World, Guests can find all sorts of stuff to buy as they explore the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

You can do a lot of your shopping online as well through the shopDisney website.

As we stated above, you are always sure to find a gift shop upon exiting most of the rides at the Disney Parks. Of course, a Disney Parks merchandise collection wouldn’t be complete without an item representing one of Walt Disney World’s most legendary rides.

While the Magic Kingdom is fille dot the brim with classic rides and attractions, Space Mountain is truly an iconic piece of not just Disney but theme park history as a whole.  While popular enough to be found at multiple Disney Resorts across the world, the original in Orlando still stands above the rest.

Disney recently unveiled a new line of Park model kits, offering Guests the opportunity to build their very own Cinderella Castle and Sleeping Beauty Castle. To commemorate Space Mountain, Disney also released a model kit of the attraction.

However, a few days ago, we noticed that the brand-new product featured quite a bizarre error on the shopDisney site.

As you can see above, the model kit was not assembled correctly in the product’s page on the shopDisney website. We aren’t sure exactly why or how this error occurred but looking at the immense catalog of products on the website, we aren’t that surprised something as minor as this slipped past Disney.

Thankfully, Disney took note and has since fixed the photo, as shown below:

The kit retails for $29.99 USD. “Imagine building your favorite Tomorrowland attraction with this Space Mountain Model Kit. Imaginations soar thanks to the detailed 27-piece kit that celebrates the place where so many galactic dreams come true”, states Disney when describing the kit, “The packaging is inspired by classic blueprints and behind-the-scenes Disney Imagineering notes. It’s all Mickey Mouse-approved too. Now it can be yours to build and put on display for light-years to come.”

You can buy the model kit by visiting the official shopDisney website.

What are your thoughts on these new model kits?
