    Epcot’s Spaceship Earth is changing.. Official!

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (April 11, 2007) -- Inside the Epcot icon, remarkable changes will be taking place over the next several months. A re-imagined Spaceship Earth presented by Siemens will combine the magic of the iconic attraction's time-travel adventure into the past with a new finale which provides guests the opportunity to imagine their futures.

    On a trip through time inside the Spaceship Earth attraction, guests discover how each generation of mankind has invented the future for the next generation, and how the spirit of innovation has moved people from the caves to the cosmos.

    Enhancements to the time-travel attraction will encompass changes to each of the ride scenes. New show scenes will be added to the attraction's story along with new lighting effects, costumes, set decoration, narration and musical score.

    This adventure through time leads ultimately to the very top of Spaceship Earth's geodesic dome, where guests arrive at the present. The time travel adventure will be enhanced through new, interactive touch screens installed aboard each "time machine" that will enable guests to create their own visions of the future and see themselves in that future.

    Sounds much better than the "Time Racers" roller coaster idea that was floated about a while back.

    Great news!

    read into it...
    'With phased renovations occurring through the year, Spaceship Earth's makeover is scheduled to be fully completed in early 2008.'

    maybe the wand is part of that final enhancement.

    Well, it was about time that the project was officially announced. How long was the rehab known about, 6 months?

    This has me excited! No drastic change to the attraction itself, except "enhancements." And a new narration? I wonder who they will choose.

    The new finale sounds really cool too. As long as the spirit of the original attraction remains.

    Pah, it'll all be worth it as long as they don't massacre the score.
