Long over due. Love the ride, but looking very dated.
Major brand new rides like Tron take around 3 years to build from ground up. This has the infrastructure already in place and much of the fittings would have been fabricated off site ready to bring in. I would expect they will want a major icon of Epcot to be finished for the 50th.

We took advantage & rode it twice on our trip last November, it's one of our favourite rides, however it's been crying out for some love for a while.
As sad as we are to see it go, we are excited to see what the new ride will be like.

Everything I have heard and read points to a 2022 opening. The Epcot transformation is a multiphase project with a number of enhancements-
inc a number of new films (some already opened), space restaurant, ratatouille, and Harmonius opening this year, the play pavilion and Guardians of the galaxy opening in 2021. Other announced projects and yet to be announced opening then from 2022 onwards.

BTW Stu - it's EPCOT now. Not Epcot.

Great photos of the construction - does not seem to do justice to the sheer enormity of Spaceship Earth. Sad to see it close for such a long time but as with all the changes in Epcot, I'm sure the wait will be worthwhile.

Been chatting for a while about this on The Great British Mickey Waffle podacast , where we have a poll for the narrator who will take over the Dame Judi Dench role.

Please add your vote and thoughts to the Dibb thread here

Some interesting ideas already
