On August 13, The Walt Disney World Resort will relaunch Mission: SPACE with a brand-new "Green Mission" and an enhanced version of the "Orange Mission." The Orange Mission will continue to be a truly intense experience that lets Guests feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars. On this mission, they’ll dodge meteoroids, slingshot around the moon, and attempt to land on the Red Planet. This mission has been enhanced with new, HD video to make it even clearer.
Guests will soon be able to embark on the more family-friendly Green Mission – a new mission that takes them on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this amazing new adventure, you’ll take in sites like the Hawaiian Islands, Italy’s “boot” and the Northern Lights—as seen from space, of course—before finally landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. No matter which mission you choose, it’ll be a journey that’s totally out of this world.
In addition to all the “mission” updates, Walt Disney Imagineering also made this attraction more family-friendly. Younger astronauts can now ride – the height restriction will be changed for the Green Mission side with the addition of new X-2 booster seats allowing children 40-44” to ride.
