For those of you in the Walt Disney World area for the next few days, you will want to be mindful of a schedule change for Spaceship Earth.  The attraction will be closing at 8 PM starting on Monday, October 1st through Thursday, October 4th, 2018.  This change is due to routine maintenance that is scheduled to occur during this time frame.  The attraction was typically open until park closing, so this as an early closing on these dates for the attraction.  The attraction is currently expected to resume normal operating hours starting on Friday, October 5th, 2018.


If you have FastPass+ selections for Spaceship Earth after 8 PM on these dates, then another time selection for the FastPass+ will be offered so that guests can still FastPass the attraction.  If none of the time options work, guests will be able to select a different attraction to use the FastPass+ selection on.

Spaceship Earth is a popular ride found within the Future World area of Epcot.  You get to learn about the dawn of education, learning and technology and a trip into space.  It is a classic attraction for the park and fun for the entire family.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
