Disneyland’s Space Mountain will be closing for one day only on January 7, 2020 for refurbishment as Disney removes the Hyperspace Mountain overlay to bring back the Classic Space Mountain.

The Hyperspace Mountain overlay was a limited-time Star Wars theme, which has been decently popular and a definite fan favorite, but unfortunately, OC Register has reported that Hyperspace Mountain is being retired (at least for now).

If you didn’t have a chance to experience the Hyperspace Mountain overlay, you can read about the experience in Disneyland’s official description of Hyperspace Mountain:

Fend off crossfire from swarms of Rebel X-wing starfighters and Imperial TIE fighters amidst an intergalactic onslaught!

Your mission begins with a briefing from Admiral Ackbar—the Rebel Alliance needs help flying reconnaissance vessels to survey an Imperial Star Destroyer. After being escorted into hyperspace by an elite X-wing squadron, you arrive only to find the Star Destroyer waiting with a swarm of TIE fighters—it’s a trap!

As Rebel forces valiantly battle Imperial vessels, you’re caught up in a barrage of blaster fire. Maneuvers become more intense as you join the Rebel squadron for one final, courageous assault on the menacing Star Destroyer. It’s an epic Star Wars combat scene taken straight from the films—but hurry, Hyperspace Mountain is only open for a limited time!

The closing of Space Mountain isn’t scheduled until January 7, 2020, so you still have time to experience the Hyperspace Mountain overlay before it goes into retirement.
