    Did I hear the Spaceship Earth at Epcot will be closing for over a year starting early 2020? That it will be undergoing a massive refurbishment?

      Dan M,

      I’ve heard the rumor that it’ll be closed for over two years starting then, but I haven’t seen an official confirmation from Disney as of yet. We’ll let you know when we do!
