    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    It think it has already been established that there is hardly anything new to talk or discuss about in regards to Spaceship Earth at this point in time.. Maybe if they closed the darn thing for a month and reopened it with new effects of show elements... then fine. Reason why I feel this topic is drifting towards other matters of higher interests for other posters here.

    If there's nothing else you want to talk about here...fine. But don't go off topic because there might be others who do want to talk about it. Point is, if you want a hat discussion, open a new thread.

    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    I'm still wondering if the space scene at the top of SE is still there. I haven't been there since 90, and I'm going this Summer. It's my favorite part of the ride.

    See, that's the thing... it's not always a bad thing if a thread goes off topic. Keeps it alive.

    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    As of yesterday, the 13th, SSE now has a fairly large "Presented by SIEMENS" on it's name signage next to the mural/entrance. This was not there the 8th or the 10th, the first two times I rode it. The additional text was added on the directional signs, too. At least some people noticed it with mixed effect, one guy saw the closed area at the end of the attraction, rambled out loud to his group about how cool it used to be, and said "I guess Siemens doesn't want this part open anymore."

    No changes inside the ride compared to the few days prior. Quite an interesting ride, by the way, although after the first trip I didn't "get it" and after three I still think I only somewhat understand.

    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    I like it. It's subtle and it goes very well with the new painting.

    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    Here are some more updates from Peter on wdwmagic....

    -The entrance ramp has been repaved and repainted

    -The blue lights around the entrance tunnel have returned.

    -There is some new lighting in the Rome scene. It gives an orange-ish flicker to the wall on the opposite side of the horses.

    -Also as reported the steam has returned in the newspaper scene.

    -The Fiber optic stars on the back wall behind the future city have retuned and look great. They are now very bright.

    -The Lightning effect on the descent has been fixed.

    -There is now a new sign in the post show area which reads "Coming Soon Ingenuity brings the future to life on SpaceShip Earth." The wall has also been repainted. It now has a gold-ish look.

    - The pavement in the exit tunnels has been repainted.

    The ride still has the traditional SSE roughness to it, but the sound in my car was much louder and clearer than I have heard it in a long time
    Looks like Siemens is really helping out with the updates.

    I didn't know to look for all that stuff but I know that post show area stuff is newer than my trip.

    I think the roughness is there to keep people awake sometimes... lol

    nice updates so far... looks like they asked to see blueprints or something from the last referb... cause a lot of stuff is coming back.. even minor.

    Re: Spaceship Earth Changes

    The last time I was there (Back in October) I asked a CM about the hat at MGM and she said they were trying to get away from the Chinese Theatre being the centerpiece of the park and that the park would be known only as "The Disney Studios" quite soon - not sure if she had her facts straight - but it makes some sense. In a lot of the promotional videos and TV spots - they refer to the park as just "The Disney Studios".

    Were those signs put up in 2001, over older AT&T signs, or are they the original ones with the globe covering AT&T signs? They look fairly temporary...
