Spaceship Earth Closing May 26th

Spaceship Earth at Epcot is a park icon that visitors will see when they get within a couple miles of the park. Starting May 26th, Disney will close Spaceship earth so it can start a major renovation of the ride. I am sure the next version of Spaceship Earth will be well worth the wait.

We are being told that the next iteration of Spaceship Earth will focus on the story of humanity. Our journey will start in prehistoric civilization and take us to today using the magic of Disney engineering. This ride will take some classic scenes that we love and transform them into modern technology to bring the scenes even more alive.

Disney will use the power of light to transform the Egypt scene which is in the current ride to bring this time in our history to life like never before. In addition to the power of light Disney will be adding, the current narration will also be updated with a new narration in this wonderful and reimagined ride.

Disney held the grand opening of Epcot on October 1, 1982. Since that time this will be the fourth transformation of Spaceship Earth. With the new technology and imagineering that is going on at Disney I am sure we are going to see a magnificent transformation of Spaceship earth that will bring the ride into focus with the reimagined Epcot.
