Tokyo Disney Resort has announced that Space Mountain and Tomorrowland will undergo a massive update at Tokyo Disneyland that’ll cost about 56 billion yen. The renovations are set to open in 2027.
The plan is to rebuild Space Mountain and the surrounding area to fit Tomorrowland better. Space Mountain will remain a roller coaster but rebuilt to be more thrilling and have better effects. The current Space Mountain is set to close permanently after July 31, 2024. Tomorrowland Square will also be redone to fit better with the area!
From April 9 through July 31, 2024, the “Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition!” event celebrates this opening day attraction.
While details are limited, Tokyo Disney Resort has provided the below concept art showing the new Space Mountain and surrounding area during daylight, in addition to artwork showing how the land will come to life once the sun sets.

Ground Breaking Ceremony
The groundbreaking ceremony was held on May 16, 2023, at the new Tomorrowland and Space Mountain construction site.
4 October 2022: Although the rebuilt Space Mountain is not scheduled to debut for another five years, Tokyo Disney Resort appears to have already started the groundwork for the project! Explorer Chris managed to capture these photos, showing that construction is already well underway in the former parking lot behind Space Mountain. Interestingly, scaffolding has also been installed on the existing attraction’s tallest spire.

My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
