Starport Seven-Five also known as Tomorrowland Station MK-1 or Space Mountain is the titular central location of Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom.

Description[]

Starport Seven-Five is one of the two primary space-stations in Tomorrowland, along with TL Space Station 77. Nicknamed, "Space Mountain" for its immense size, the facility harbours a variety of space-ships used for transport across the universe, assisted by the Starport's, "Superspace Tunnel" teleportation systems, which sent ships to space-stations across the universe. The starport was located directly adjacent to the Tomorrowland Launch Depot.

The starport was known for promoting different interstellar tourism destinations with their slogan being, "Your Gateway to the Galaxies". This included large displays for Constellations "The City of Stars", the intergalactic park of Mercury Peak, Crater Caverns, and going, "20,000 Lightyears Under the Sea" on the Coral Moons of Pisces. The Starport's business was part of the Tomorrowland Chamber of Commerce, and may have been run by the alien organization the League of Planets which ran Space Station 77.
