A new Tomorrowland Plaza that focuses on expressing “the connection between Earth and the universe, representing an image of a future where humans are in harmony with nature” will be opening in 2027. While the indoor rollercoaster ride will stay largely the same, guests will experience “enhanced performance and immersive special effects” on the new version of the ride.
