Space Mountain and the Television of Tomorrow
June 29, 2011 Leave a comment
In its original 1975 incarnation, Walt Disney World’s Space Mountain housed an RCA-sponsored Home of Tomorrow exhibition. The exhibition showcased a number of RCA’s mid-70s television products, including its SelectaVision VideoDisc systems and Colortrak CRT sets. The first video is an excerpt of a home movie recorded by a park visitor in 1978 – if you pay close attention you can catch a few glimpses of the VideoDisc player. The second is a recording of Here’s to the Future, the song that played in Space Mountain’s entrance and exit areas.
More to come as I track down additional info…
