Tokyo Disney Resort just announced that the classic Space Mountain attraction, a guest favorite since 1983, will be closing for a major renovation of Tomorrowland starting in 2024. When it opens in 2027 the new area will see a newly rebuilt Space Mountain attraction!
The attraction will still keep the original concept as an indoor coaster that takes guests on a high-speed journey through space, but will now include enhanced performance and immersive special effects.
According to Walt Disney Imagineering Producer Kathleen Davis, “I’m thrilled to introduce this attraction to guests. It’s not only a whole new ride experience, but the story also has so much emotion. Through the queue and then on the ride, we see our connection to our planet and gain a new perspective for how special it is in all the universe. It’s a roller coaster with both thrill and heart.”
The all-new plaza in Tomorrowland will represent a future where humans are in harmony with nature. “With the overarching story of appreciating our home (Planet Earth), we are making this change to spread awareness of caring for our Earth and what she’s gifted us throughout time as we know it,” said Owen Yoshino, Senior Creative Director for Walt Disney Imagineering.
