Hyperspace Mountain will be returning to Disneyland on April 29, 2022. This overlay of Space Mountain will be in Tomorrowland for a limited run. It will be arriving in time for the Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite events and also May the 4th (Star Wars Day).
The news comes from the Disneyland website and app. Both of these indicate that Space Mountain will close on April 28th to prepare for the arrival of Hyperspace Mountain on April 29th. The overlay will presumably run through at least May 27th, which is the night of the last Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite.
The official Disneyland description of the overlay is as follows:
Fend off crossfire from swarms of Rebel X-wing starfighters and Imperial TIE fighters amidst an intergalactic onslaught!
Your mission begins with a briefing from Admiral Ackbar—the Rebel Alliance needs help flying reconnaissance vessels to survey an Imperial Star Destroyer. After being escorted into hyperspace by an elite X-wing squadron, you arrive only to find the Star Destroyer waiting with a swarm of TIE fighters—it’s a trap!
As Rebel forces valiantly battle Imperial vessels, you’re caught up in a barrage of blaster fire. Maneuvers become more intense as you join the Rebel squadron for one final, courageous assault on the menacing Star Destroyer. It’s an epic Star Wars combat scene taken straight from the films—but hurry, Hyperspace Mountain is only open for a limited time!
Originally, Hyperspace Mountain debuted at the Disneyland Resort in 2015 as a part of the Season of the Force. This was a celebration at Disneyland that coincided with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Since it initially debuted for a limited time run, it has returned multiple times. Generally its return is around the month of May and Star Wars Day, which is May 4th.
