We definitely have big news for fans of the Mission: SPACE! attraction in Epcot’s Future World at Walt Disney World.  The attraction has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment for the last few months in order to enhance guest experience.  Disney has been working to introduce new missions and options in order to make the experience a more family-friendly attraction so more guests can enjoy it.  We just learned from various sources that the narration for the attraction as you are prepping to board will no longer be hosted by Gary Sinise.  The new host for the attraction will be Gina Torres.

Gina Torres is a popular actress, famous for many different action roles.  She has been in TV shows like Firefly, Westworld, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, Suits, The Catch, Hannibal, and more.  She has also been in movies such as Serenity and the various Matrix movies.  Although it will be sad to no longer have Gary Sinise as the narrator, it will be very exciting to hear the direction that they take with the narration and what changes they make as the attraction opens.

The attraction is scheduled to re-open to guests on Sunday, August 13th.  Who can’t wait to go and check out all of the changes after the big refurbishment?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
