Space Mountain Com Chat

Loop runs 7:19

The loop can be heard (very faintly) in the loading queue and more clearly in the "chicken exit" (which can be accessed right behind Mission Control in the queue line). A partial version, running 5:28, was released on the Walt Disney World Forever system.

A source copy of the 7:19 version is in limited circulation. I believe a version of the full loop was released on the Tokyo Disneyland "Treasures of Fantasy" CD set.

I compared this to a live recording that was recorded in 1986 and it was a match. I will confirm that no changes have been made since then. Since I had nothing better to do one morning, I typed up a script of the com chat dialog. I'm not exactly sure I credited all of the dialog to the correct narrator, but the script will prove useful in confirming there have been no changes since the live recording was made.
