Space Mountain’s Speed Ramp Exit Walled Off, Temporary Pathway Built Behind the Attraction

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

This morning we made our way over to Magic Kingdom and we decided to ride Space Mountain. Upon exiting Space Mountain, we noticed that the speed ramp finale was closed off. Even more odd, is the fact that there was drywall put up and a construction door as if this refurbishment is planned to take a long time.

Guests exiting Space Mountain are now being routed backstage via a temporary bridge that gives you a glimpse of TRON construction next door. The temporary walkway is dressed up with walls and lighting. Cast Members help guests cross over the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks and ensure that traffic flow is stopped when a train approaches.

At the Space Mountain gift shop, more drywall is located where the speed ramp would end and guests would come off. At this time, we don’t know what changes are being done to the speed ramp and the finale. We’ll make sure to share any information when we find out.

  • They’re taking out the moving sidewalk and replacing it with a normal ramp. I heard someone saying that, but I don’t know who.

  • They’re taking out the moving sidewalk and replacing it with a normal ramp. Apparently, it’s been a safety hazard with people sitting on it and the like. At least that’s what a Cast Member told me.

  • Great video, watched the whole thing! Loved the bonus majestic shot of Space Mountain from the Peoplemover at the end. So has this walkway always been there, but is just some kind of emergency exit? Very cool.
