Space Mountain merch charms fans by introducing its new souvenir. The reason behind this twist is to celebrate the attraction’s birthday. This roller coaster ride hit the Disneyland theme park in May 1977. Fans embraced the Space Mountain swag with open arms—except riders gripping tightly during the track’s highs and lows.

The new Space Mountain merch is a deep blue, stainless steel bottle. Ready to keep drinks cold or warm on Earth or in space, the Tomorrowland merch gives fans a special way to remember the trip. Its lanyard celebrates this icon’s birthday and lets guests take the fun with them to infinity and beyond.
