Work Moves to Spire as Space Mountain Cleanup Continues at Magic Kingdom

Crew members continue to work on cleaning up Space Mountain in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom.

From the courtyard of TRON Lightcycle / Run, we saw a crew member in a cherry picker near the base of the attraction.

They were painting the lower edge of the mountain with a long roller.

Guests may also notice that the tallest spire of Space Mountain has been surrounded by scaffolding.

We could just barely see two crew members working on the lower levels of the scaffolding.

Some scaffolding is also on two pairs of spires below the highest point of Space Mountain.

Over a dozen crew members were spotted scaling the mountain yesterday.

As we moved vantage points, we saw more crew members working on the spire.

We also saw a few crew members on the side of the mountain.

They are attached by safety cords.

This crew member was on a kind of cart that can roll up and down the sides of the building.
