The Epcot transformation is officially in full swing in Disney World!
And while we’ve had new restaurant openings, and plenty of construction, now we have news of when to expect one of the biggest changes to the park — the reimagining of the park’s iconic Spaceship Earth!
According to Disney, the previously announced transformation of Spaceship Earth will be beginning May 26th at the park! This means that the ride in its current form will be closing starting that day, with working being done inside the geosphere for a period of time. Disney also shared new information on the ride, giving a sneak peek at the new version of the ride’s iconic Egypt scene, which will bring new elements of light to enhance the experience.
At the 2019 D23 Expo, we learned that this new iteration of the ride would focus on the “story of humanity, following our long journey from prehistoric humans to today brought to life with magic and depth that only Disney can deliver.” The plan is to blend brand new scenes with some of the iconic ones we know and love from the current Spaceship Earth.
Are you excited for the new iteration of Spaceship Earth? Will you be riding the current version one last time? Let us know in the comments!
