Space Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland is scheduled to close for a major refurbishment at the end of its normal operating day on July 31, 2024.
As a result, Tokyo Disney Resort has announced a special event – “Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition!” This event will take place from April 9 through July 31, 2024, and will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy the current version of Space Mountain, a popular and beloved attraction since the grand opening of Tokyo Disneyland.
For a limited time, guests can enjoy decorations themed to the event in the area surrounding the attraction, as well as a space- themed photo location. Additionally, special merchandise and menu items will be available. During the event, guests will have the chance to experience a thrilling journey on the current version of Space Mountain one more time.
Space Mountain and its surrounding area will undergo a major transformation, with the renovated attraction scheduled to debut in 2027. This entirely new Space Mountain attraction will maintain its original concept as an indoor coaster but will have enhanced performance and immersive special effects that will provide guests with even more thrills. Guests can look forward to the newly evolved Space Mountain at Tomorrowland and the fun that awaits them. Space Mountain is presented by Coca-Cola (Japan) Company, Ltd.
The area in and around Space Mountain will even feature decorations and a photo location themed to “Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition!” At the attraction entrance, guests will be greeted by the event logo and a banner with the words “The Final Ignition!” In a surrounding area, guests can find the “Space Photo Place,” a photo location with motifs of the current version of the spacecraft from Space Mountain, where guests can take photos as if they are traveling through space. Guests can also relive their memories of Space Mountain and take a picture to commemorate their final voyage on the current attraction.
Special merchandise will also be a part of “Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition!” Items with designs inspired by the event will incorporate elements of the current and upcoming versions of the attraction, and will be available for purchase beginning April 8. As a part of “Tokyo Disney Resort Circulating Smiles” program, a special patch badge created from upcycled costumes work by Space Mountain Cast Members will be available. This patch can be attached to bags or pouches, and will serve as a perfect momento of Space Mountain.
Special menu items will also be a part of “The Final Ignition” event beginning April 1.
