Relaunched! Mission: Space gets the go for launch this Sunday!



We have a go for launch. Mission Space will be Relaunched this Sunday, August 13th at Walt Disney World’s Epcot. The ride will reopen with improved graphics for the orange mission, and an all new, family friendly green mission. The green mission will take guests on an orbit around the planet, before touching back down at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The Relaunched attraction will also get a new host, as Gary Sinise is retiring from Mission Control. Gina Torres will take over in Flight, and will be your guide through the ride, and in the pre-show.


Torres is well known for many roles, including Ketsu Onyo in Star Wars Rebels, Cas in the Matrix sequels and Lauren in WestWorld.


The most interesting thing is that according to the Walt Disney World website, the name of hte ride now looks to be Relaunched! Mission:Space. Mission: Space is Relaunched this Sunday!
