I’m so hoping that Spaceship Earth will stay open til Test Track finishes its refurb - fingers crossed!
Me too! I'd really like to ride SE several times in late Jan before it goes down for such a long refurb.I’m so hoping that Spaceship Earth will stay open til Test Track finishes its refurb - fingers crossed!
lol, my DD (4) literally falls asleep on SE every.single.time. But it's usually at the end of a long day, she could use the nap, and it's my DS favorite ride, so it works.I hope it's still open when I'm there! My DH calls it "the nap" personally, I like the fact that it's one attraction that I've never had to wait for! Especially at the very end of the night. Ride, get off and no one is around. easy peasy
HAHA! It was my favourite nursing ride back when my babes were littlelol, my DD (4) literally falls asleep on SE every.single.time. But it's usually at the end of a long day, she could use the nap, and it's my DS favorite ride, so it works.
Bummed about TT being closed for our trip in Feb 2020 but if it means SE will still be open, the family will rejoice.
We don't know for sure - the speculation I had initiall yseen was potentially as early as by the end of this year or early 2020. The thinking now with the announcement of TT closing early 2020 is that it pushes back the close of SSE but it is just us trying to be logical - which Disney isn't alwaysDoes anyone have an idea when Spaceship Earth might close? We'll be visiting in late February and are hoping to catch it before it closes. (I see that Test Track is closed for refurbishment from 1/13/20 to 2/27/20, and I'm hoping that Disney wouldn't close Test Track and Spaceship Earth at the same time, since that would leave Future World with pretty limited options...)
Hmm, that doesn't bode well. I am imagining what happened when they built the now Dinosaur ride at the Animal Kingdom. They used the same design from the the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland for Dinosaur. The Indiana Jones ride is richly themed, while Dinosaur has dark spaces. The reason was because they didn't want to spend money to flesh out some of the Dinosaur spaces.so just a quick blurb by Martin at WDWMagic.com, the budget for the SSE refurb has been reduced, so probably won't see a full new ride system, but he has heard there should be some real upgrades and will keep the spirit of the ride. But he does NOT trust the imagineers on this.
