    Disney broke ground on the reimagining back in May 2023 with work mostly taking place in backstage areas behind the attraction. 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.
