    WDW Rate It!: SpaceShip Earth

    I gave it a 4. I really love this ride, but it really needs to be refurbed and updated. I am really, really sad that it has not had the attention that it deserves!!!!!

    I gave Spaceship Earth a 4. Its a real fun ride, and one I make a point to riding every trip. Only downside is it is in need of rehab, and has yet to get the attention it deserves as of yet.

    Sounds like me and you, Kyle, have the same opinion on this one!

    Easily a 10.0 plus! I loved this more than anything in Future World. I could not get over the fact that there was a ride inside Spaceship Earth.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    NO GOATS!

    I'm with Mamabot. I LOVE Spaceship Earth. There is much that could be done to improve it, but it is still fantastic as it is. I like the return back to earth the best. It is a very steep decline with lots of interesting optics and projections. EPCOT's acid trip.

    I gave it a 3. I enjoy it kind of like a comfort food.

    I gave it a 5. I love this ride. It's totally rickety and nostalgic for me. It's what rides at Disney aught to be ... not like Mission: Gift Shop or the Test Track.

    Granted it could use an update but I would hate to see it go the way of the newer rides.

    I gave it a 4. Have always thought it was a great attraction. Love how you smell the burning wood after passing Rome and have always loved the engineering behind the structure itself.

    I hope any eventual updates to the ride preserve the uniqueness of it. If anything....make more comfortable seats ; )

    P.S. I love telling first timers there is a ride inside the sphere. They always think I'm joking.

    This ride is a disaster. Walter Cronkite couldn't even save it. It is a poor rendition of a story that is told better on the National Geographic or History Channel. Choosing this medium handicaps what could have been a really compelling story. The fact that people used to turn the vehicles around at the top of the hill says it all.

    Epcot is always where I start my visits, and SE is always the first attraction I hit (and usually the only one that I'll do multiple visits to every trip). I agree, tho, that it needs a good refurb. And they killed the entryway with those stupid projected images of the cars turning around backwards. If people are so dumb that they think it's time to get out of their cars when they start turning around, then they deserve to get crunched by the machinery and thin the herd!!!

    Spaceship Earth deserves a 5 (that's what I gave it), but in its current condition, it's barely above a 1. When I rode it last week, the soundtrack is out of sync in many scenes, and many of the audio-animatronics were not operating. The sculptor had his arms raised in the air like he was being robbed! I agree with Danyoung that the start of the ride has been ruined with the video displays, but the end of the ride is far worse. The Global Neighborhood display was lousy to begin with, and now it's totally boarded up. Does anyone remember when it was a Guest Services area with the World Key displays? I wish they would bring that back. It was very impressive! șoș

    To me, Spacehship Earth is the ride that defines Walt Disney World. When I sit down in that vehicle, I sort of get this "relaxed" feeling. The whole ride just amazes me from start to finish and really cheers me up!

    Spaceship Earth should stay the same!

    I don't want any wholesale changes - I just want them to fix the stuff that should be working, and take out those intrusive video warnings!!!
