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.
