The trademark, filed this month, is for “Space Mountain Earthrise.” The trademark’s filing covers a variety of uses, including entertainment; provision of goods and services; teaching of art, sports, or knowledge; providing, planning, or operating a movie; and more. The name doesn’t reveal much, but it’s the most we’ve learned about the attraction since the Oriental Land Company announced it in 2022. Along with the new version of the attraction, Tokyo Disneyland will gain a new Tomorrowland plaza.

Space Mountain, an exhilarating, indoor roller coaster that takes guests on a high-speed joy ride through space, has been a favorite of guests since the Grand Opening of Tokyo Disneyland in 1983. This entirely new attraction will maintain its original concept as an indoor roller coaster, but will have enhanced performance and immersive special effects that will give guests even more thrills on this exciting rocket ride.

The new Tomorrowland plaza will express the connection between Earth and the universe, representing an image of a future where humans are in harmony with nature. Guests will be able to enjoy moments of rest and relaxation in this plaza where various icons and other design elements create a sense of hope for the future. After dark, the area will draw guests into a spectacular world of light and soundscapes.

Disney and OLC released three pieces of concept art depicting the ride and plaza during the day, dusk, and night.

Approximately ¥56 billion ($437 million) will be spent on the new ride. Crews began to clear a construction site in late 2022 and a groundbreaking ceremony took place in May 2023.

Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition, honoring the current version of the attraction, begins on April 9. The celebration will run through July 31, the closing date for the current Space Mountain. The event includes special merchandise.

Space Mountain opened with Tokyo Disneyland on April 15, 1983, as a clone of the Disneyland version. The new glowing plaza and façade seem to take inspiration from Tomorrowland in Shanghai Disneyland, which has TRON Lightcycle Power Run instead of Space Mountain.
