Spaceship Earth Operating Hours Adjusted October 1st-4th

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

Epcot visitors, please be advised that time-travelling hours will be restricted next week.

Spaceship Earth will be closing early from Monday, October 1st (coincidentally, the attraction and park’s 36th birthday) to Thursday, October 4th. The attraction will close at 8 PM, an hour before park closing. The ride will be closing for “routine maintenance.” (There’s no word as to whether or not this is related to a recent leak at the attraction, causing the ride to be shut down most of the day.)

Guests currently holding Fastpass+ reservations for the ride that conflict with these adjusted hours will be offered to change their reservations to an earlier time or to a different attraction.

The ride is expected to return to full operating hours on Friday, October 5th.
