The cast members for the newly refurbished Spaceship Earth at Epcot can now be seen roaming Future World in their brand new costumes as they await word on when the attraction will open. The ride will probably have a limited test run within the next week, with soft openings starting by December 18th. By no means is the work on Spaceship Earth complete, a lot of the refurbishment that was supposed to happen on the early scenes of the attraction was postponed due to complaints from Epcot management that the attraction would not be open for the holidays. The attraction will still be very different and refreshed when it re-opens, but as was originally reported, the attraction will probably close again for a few days in February 2008.
