Reports are coming in that new lighting effects have been turned on in the final descent of Spaceship Earth, bringing the attraction closer to physical completion. Word has it that Disney chose to open the unfinished attraction to meet capacity demands from the operations staff – a whole two months of full closure prior to it being finished. Those two months have now turned into nearly 10 months of guests riding past black curtains and chicken wire. Hopefully the improvements, when completed, will have been worth the wait.
