Siemens and Disney to Rededicate Spaceship Earth at Epcot

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., March 4, 2008 — With the help of a little Disney magic, Siemens and Walt Disney World Resort rededicated Spaceship Earth and officially reopened this classic Epcot attraction. The re-imagined Spaceship Earth combines the magic of time-travel into the past with a new interactive conclusion, presented by Siemens, which invites guests to imagine the future. On a trip through time, guests discover how each generation of mankind has invented the future for the next generation. 

While it looks much like it did on the outside when Epcot opened in 1982, the inside has undergone significant changes since summer 2007, including many enhanced scenes, new costumes and set decorations, new lighting and special effects, a new musical score and narration, and a totally re-themed interactive post-show.
