Updates to Spaceship Earth confirmed as part of Epcot's redevelopment

23 days ago in "Spaceship Earth"

Epcot's Spaceship Earth will be updated to integrate the park's signature attraction into the new theme of World Celebration.

Spaceship Earth will remain the park’s icon but the journey will be transformed with new scenes reflecting the universal nature of the human experience. A new guide and all new narration will focus on the storytelling that brings people together.

The ride will include new scenes, updates to existing scenes, and what Disney is calling 'Story Light" - which will apparently bring the scenes to life.

Disney says that "as you exit Spaceship Earth, you’ll discover a breathtaking new view of World Showcase from Dreamers Point."

Disney is yet to announce a closure date for the existing Spaceship Earth, but speculation currently suggests a late 2019 closure to begin the work.
