Fan Shares the Amazing Christmas Overlay on Disney World Ride

Christmas is officially at Walt Disney World, and many rides are being decked out in celebration of the holiday, including fan-favorite “Space Mountain.”

The Walt Disney World Resort and its four Theme Parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are wonderful places to spend the holidays. From Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and the Candlelight Processional to the beautiful Christmas overlay that takes over the Disney Resort, it’s a magical place to spend a Disney vacation during this time of year.

One of the most beloved rides, “Space Mountain” has a holiday overlay that goes live in the evening during the party hours of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Space Mountain becomes Space Mountain – Holiday Run featuring Christmas tunes and lighting. A fan who was visiting the Disney Park for the party rode “Space Mountain” during these hours and had an incredible time on the ride.

@waltdisneyworldparks on TikTok shared a video featuring some stunning scenes from the experience.

Check out the awesome experience of the attraction yourself:

The user captioned the video, “Space Mountain with the Christmas Overlay is a must at Walt Disney World.” And many users in the comments agreed as well. @Frostbite1776 mentioned, “Rode it at the Christmas party last week. It was pretty wild.” @rileytrooper even shared they wished “the cosmic rewind overlay would be like this but it’s just a Christmas song.”

Some users also expressed disappointment that the ride didn’t have its Christmas overlay during the day and only came on during the party hours.

Here’s what the Walt Disney World website has to share about the ride:

Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.

Zoom Through the Galaxy

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!
