    Hi Do you have any information on the refeb of spaceship earth in 2020? Thanks for your time.

    Greetings, Daniel! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Epcot is my very favorite Walt Disney World theme park, and I would be happy to talk about its historic transformation with you.

    Spaceship Earth is one of my family's favorite attractions in all of the Disney Parks, and I appreciate how the ride is maintained and kept current with new technologies. As of now, no official information has been released, and I am not certain at the moment of how and when this attraction fits into Future World's historic re-imagining. I checked the Disney Park Hours calendar, which shows operating hours (subject to change) for the theme parks up to six months in advance. I did not see Spaceship Earth listed under Epcot refurbishments yet. If Spaceship Earth is high on your priority list (it always is on mine), then I suggest checking the Park Hours for the dates of your trip as your vacation approaches to see if it appears under attractions scheduled for refurbishment.

    What I do know, Daniel, is that Epcot is in the midst of an unprecedented transformation. By the time you visit in August of 2020, there will be many new experiences for you to enjoy. The winter of 2020 will see the debut of two all new films in World Showcase, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along and Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360. In addition, Awesome Planet, an on-screen exploration of our beautiful and dynamic planet, will debut this winter in Future World.

    If you've ever wondered what it's like to live among the stars aboard a space station, you will have the opportunity to, if you dine at Space 220 Restaurant, opening winter 2020 as part of the Mission: SPACE pavilion. It's an experience that's sure to be out of this world!

    Finally, and the new experience that I personally am most excited about, is the debut of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, coming summer 2020. My family had the chance to ride this attraction in Disneyland Paris, and I know it will make a fantastic addition to Epcot's World Showcase. Watch for more news and an exact opening date for this attraction as your trip nears!

    As you can see, there are so many exciting things on the horizon for Epcot. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements and information. The future looks very bright for my favorite Walt Disney World theme park!

    See ya real soon, Daniel!
