Space Mountain at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Florida will close on April 19 for a makeover that is likely to take a couple of months. Disney spokesperson Andrea Finger said it is expected to reopen late in the year, although a specific reopening date has not been set. The timetable means Space Mountain will be closed throughout the busy summer-travel season. The makeover includes some track replacement, a new ceiling inside of the dome, and a new enclosure for the ride’s queueing area. The layout of the track and the overall experience will remain the same. "We're retaining many of the classic elements that made Space Mountain a rite of passage at the Magic Kingdom that's been enjoyed by generations," Finger said.
