Disney recently revealed when one beloved attraction will be shutting down and getting a very special Star Wars treatment.
While Disneyland is home to some truly legendary attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and “it’s a small world”, few compare to the thrills and chills offered by Space Mountain. But soon, Space Mountain will become something very different and exciting!
As stated by the official Disneyland website “Space Mountain will be closed on April 28, 2022, and will reopen as Hyperspace Mountain on April 29 for a limited time”. For those who may not know, Hyperspace Mountain is a limited-time retheme of Space Mountain at Disneyland which adds all kinds of Star Wars elemnts to the iconic attraction.
