Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World opened to Guests this morning, without the operation of a popular coaster — Space Mountain.
Per WDW Stats on Twitter, the fan-favorite coaster has been closed since 8 a.m., which is when Magic Kingdom opened to Guests:

When checking the My Disney Experience one hour after Park opening, we can see that Space Mountain is still not operating.
At this time, we do not know the cause of the temporary closure, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
In the meantime, Guests can still enjoy other Magic Kingdom attractions including Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Mad Tea Party, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, “it’s a small world”, and more!
Space Mountain at Disney World
Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Located in Tomorrowland, this indoor roller coaster takes Guests on a journey into space as they zoom past stars, planets, and more.
Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.
Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!
