Spaceship Earth Closes May 26 for Overhaul

Dinsey overhauled Spaceship Earth in 1986, 1994, and 2007, and it is going to do so again.  The attraction will shut down on May 26, 2020, for its fourth major facelift.

Disney first announced that Spaceship Earth would close in October 2018, and then announced a new name for the attraction at the D23 Expo in 2019: “Spaceship Earth: Our Shared Story.”

Disney released concept art of the Egyptian scene, showing how the attraction will be transformed with light.

The overhaul is expected to take two and a half years.

Fans can expect new narration and both a refresh of the early scenes in the attraction as well as more significant changes to the later scenes, especially after the Industrial Revolution.

Looking forward to the Spaceship Earth refurbishment?
