One of EPCOT’s most recognizable, beloved, and iconic attractions has been left in a disappointing state, and fans are let down to see Walt Disney World ignore the classic ride’s upkeep.
Walt Disney World Resort is home to four unique theme parks that each have something different to offer Guests. Between Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT, no Disney Park emphasizes the past and future simultaneously like EPCOT.
EPCOT is divided into four different neighborhoods: World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature, and World Showcase. However, at the hub of it all lies Spaceship Earth.
At the center of the Disney Park, Spaceship Earth is one of the first things Guests see when they enter. But unfortunately, it’s become a bit of a sore sight.
Educational and entertaining all at once, Spaceship Earth is one of the oldest additions to the Disney Park. Now decades old, Spaceship Earth takes Guests on a journey through humanity from the very beginning to the distant future.
There was a time when the audio-animatronics and effects used throughout the attraction were stunning. But now, the ride is severely outdated. The latest technology is now ancient by modern standards, and to top it all off, the exterior is beginning to look as worn as the interior.

In this Tweet, we can see how filthy the exterior of Spaceship Earth has become. Now, it’s become hard to believe that the facade was ever flawless.
Fans have been asking themselves for years, ‘Will Disney ever update Spaceship Earth?’ From the sight of this lack of management, we can assume that the answer is an unfortunate and resounding ‘No.’
