NEWS: EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth Refurbishment Reportedly Postponed Indefinitely

As part of a multi-year transformation of Walt Disney World’s EPCOT, Spaceship Earth — the attraction that also serves as the park’s icon — was set to undergo a major refurbishment of its own.

That refurbishment was supposed to begin on May 26th. And, in fact, even at press time, Spaceship Earth is still listed as being closed for refurbishment on Walt Disney World’s website.

However, according to an article by the Orlando Sentinel, the refurbishment of Spaceship Earth has been postponed indefinitely. The article shares information provided by Eric Clinton, leader of the Local 362 union.

In discussing cast members who will be returning to Walt Disney World for the reopening of the theme parks this summer, Clinton noted that employees will be needed to staff Spaceship Earth since the ride will be open to guests.

So, it looks as though we will see the “grand and miraculous” attraction that we have known for a long time now…
