Tokyo Disneyland held a groundbreaking ceremony today, officially launching the $400+ million renovation of Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. The project will completely transform not only the aging Space Mountain attraction but the entire plaza and surrounding area. The newly developed plaza and attraction refresh are expected to be completed in 2027.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, construction for this project was officially set in motion by the President and COO of Oriental Land Co., Ltd., Kenji Yoshida, and Chairman and CEO of Oriental Land Co., Ltd., Toshio Kagami.
This entirely new Space Mountain attraction will maintain its original concept as an indoor roller coaster, but will have enhanced performance and immersive special effects that will
give guests even more thrills on this exciting ride. Additionally, the new Tomorrowland plaza will express the connection between Earth and the universe, representing an image of a future where humans are in harmony with nature. After dark, the area will draw guests into a spectacular world of light and soundscapes.
As part of the project, Space Mountain will close in 2024.
