A Spacey Crest

We are moving into the second half of the Crests of the Kingdom pin series, which means it is time to hit one of the most popular attractions at Disneyland – Space Mountain.

As you’d expect, the crest features the iconic white outside of the attraction.  Okay, so here it is gray since the entire front of the pin is made from pewter, but you can definitely see the outline of it.  Circling the crest is the trail of a shooting star, and a few other stars are around the edges.  The Latin phrase this month is on the trail from the main shooting star.  It’s “Eamus ad astra,” which means “Let’s go to the stars.”  Once again, that’s perfect for the attraction.

When you flip the crest open, you’ll see the cartoon picture inside.  There are no recognizable characters this month.  Instead, we get a picture of two astronauts sitting in their spaceship, which looks remarkably close to the vehicle we ride in for the attraction.  Around them, we see the bottom of another space ship, stars, and planets.

As much fun as it would be to have a Disney character in this picture, it doesn’t diminish my love of the pin.  And I feel like the outside is perfect.  It’s a fun variation on a theme, and I always love that kind of creativity.

I’m not surprised that Space Mountain received a crest during this pin series last year.  Since the attraction is so popular, I’m happy it was such a great release.
