Update: As of about 6PM ET, Space Mountain appears to have reopened as it is showing a 50 minute wait on My Disney Experience.
Earlier this week, 5 EPCOT attractions were ALL closed at the same time. Recently, we also shared a look at 2 Disney World rides that have been closed for OVER a year. And now, a super popular Magic Kingdom ride has been evacuated and is temporarily closed!
Earlier today, we were walking around Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom and we noticed quite a few people outside of Magic Kingdom’s 3 big mountains — Space Mountain. That’s when we learned that both Space Mountain…
…and the shop next to it, Tomorrowland Power & Light Co., were being evacuated.
Disney evacuated the queue for Space Mountain as well.
We spoke to a Cast Member who said they couldn’t disclose what happened that caused the evacuation. The Cast Member did note, however, that it would be at least 2 hours before the ride would be available again. We spoke to that Cast Member around 1:00PM ET. As of about 2:00 ET, Space Mountain still appears as “temporarily closed” on the My Disney Experience app.
We’ll keep an eye out for more details about this situation.
