Disney announced the official opening date for Mission: Space and revealed details about the new Green Mission as well as the official reopeing date. Fastpass is now available as well!
Mission: Space will reopen in Epcot on August 13, 2017 with an all new Green side mission that will take “families” on a mission that will circle the Earth. Disney made it more family friendly by lowering the height restriction on the GREEN Mission from 44 inches, downt to only 40 inches. The ride will offer special booster seats for those between 40 and 44 inches in height.
“Embark on the more family-friendly Green Mission – a new mission that takes you on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this amazing new adventure, you’ll take in sites like the Hawaiian Islands, Italy’s “boot” and the Northern Lights—as seen from space, of course—before finally landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. No matter which mission you choose, it’ll be a journey that’s totally out of this world.”
The only change to the Orange Mission is that the more intense mission will now feature High Definition video.
“If you think you’ve got “the right stuff,” take on the Orange Mission for a truly intense experience that lets you feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars. On this mission, you’ll dodge meteoroids, slingshot around the moon and attempt a precision landing on the Red Planet’s alien surface. This “mission” has been enhanced with new, HD video to make it even clearer – I can’t imagine!”
Fastpass is available beginning August 13, 2017 as well.
