In honor of Space Mountain closing temporarily at Tokyo Disneyland in the summer of 2024, the resort has announced a special event titled Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition! The event will run between 9th April and 31st July, 2024, with the ride closing at the end of the final day.

During the event period, Tomorrowland will be filled with Space Mountain-themed decorations. And, as well as having the opportunity to ride Space Mountain in its original format for the final time, there will be a space-themed photo spot where you can snap a fun photograph.

Space-Themed Stickers, Snacks, and Merchandise

Throughout the event, cast members will be distributing special stickers in Tomorrowland for both riders and non-riders. Those who use the Disney Resort Line will also receive passes featuring a limited-edition design.

Special snacks come in the form of a sparkling jelly drink at Tomorrowland Terrace - there are Coca-Cola and Lemon-Vanilla variations and both drinks are said to be extremely sweet, infused with passion fruit jelly and lemon.

Select popcorn wagons around the park (not just in Tomorrowland) will also offer exclusive salted popcorn boxes with a special Mickey Mouse and Celebrating Space Mountain: The Final Ignition! design.
