The Countdown to Space Mountain Closing Forever Has Begun

To honor their original version of Space Mountain permanently closing this summer, Tokyo Disneyland is hosting Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition!

Tomorrowland Cast Members are giving guests a special Celebrating Space Mountain sticker. The sticker is a blue hexagon with “celebrating” on the orange tail of a Space Mountain ride vehicle.

“Space Mountain” is set against an illustration of the ride’s iconic building and “The Final Ignition!” is below it in white. “Before the future begins” is written across the top left, and the background is spotted with white stars.

New paneling recently added to the exit queue of Space Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland.

The artwork matches the new paneling in the Space Mountain exit tunnel teasing the next version of the attraction.

After that exit tunnel is a new illuminated sign displaying concept art for the new Space Mountain and updated Tomorrowland plaza. It reads, “A new future awaits in 2027!” The ride is set to open that year.

Space Mountain Photo Op

The new Space Mountain, rumored to be named “Space Mountain Earthrise,” will open in 2027. Construction began behind Tomorrowland in late 2022 and the Oriental Land Company held a groundbreaking ceremony in May 2023. The project will cost approximately ¥56 billion ($437 million).
