  • New SSE music, uniforms, and employee rides happening today!

    Reports from wdwmagic today report that SSE apparently was having private guests on today.

    New background music playing around SSE
    The SSE sign has new lighting effects on it
    New SSE Costumes spoted

    With internal people riding it today.. maybe there is hope for soft-openings later this week! Check out merf's thread for more details.. including videos of the signs and new music

    The costumes look extremely ugly to me. What ever happened to costumes that included more then a SHIRT!

    I was at Epcot today, the costumes looked fine. I am looking forward to when it opens. Also, Rix at the Coronado Springs opened today. I'll have pics of both (Rix in the next day or two, and SSE whenever it opens).

          that music sounds really cool...

          Costumes seem generic to me...

          The color changing sign, might be cool at night, but during the day I doubt anyone will even notice....

            I didn't notice it (I left just before it got dark).

                      I heard that at 7 pm tonight imagineers " mysteriously" opened a door in the construction wall and actually let the little people on the ride. haven't been able to confirm this rumor but it was on another chat board.

                        The Orlando Sentinel has video from inside SSE and an article that details some of the changes.. including explaining how the new touchscreens will be used

                        Epcot enthusiasts will have a ball again soon. Construction walls near Spaceship Earth, iconic sphere of the theme park, will fall sometime next week, after five months of refurbishment, Walt Disney World officials said. Inside are changes in content, new interactive components and enhancements of items that have marked the attraction since day one.

                        Its theme has shifted from communication through the ages to one of inspiration and innovation. The most recent script, read by Jeremy Irons, has been scrapped -- the new narrator is Oscar winner Judi Dench, whose words guide riders through the generations.

                        "The story is those building blocks that got us to today," said Bob Zalk, show producer. The plot winds through several scenes familiar to Spaceship Earth fans: the Egyptians, the burning of Rome (that smoky aroma remains), the Renaissance, the switchboard and more. All scenes up through the 1960s living room remain, but elements have been repositioned and upgraded. Each have new lights and costumes. Some Audio-Animatronics are increasingly lifelike.


                        "We've technologically updated the figures so they can move around more than before," said Eric Jacobson, senior vice president of Walt Disney Imagineering. "That's something we couldn't do in the '80s." Especially striking are a Greek teacher and a Roman soldier.

                        Fresh content is most apparent as riders near the top of the sphere. New sets representing the invention of the computer mainframe and the garage where the personal computer was developed lead to the darkened, downward second half of the experience. As the cars coast down the rail, passengers answer seven questions about their future on a touch screen. (Do you prefer the journey or the destination? While away, do you worry more about your home or your pet?) Answers are melded into a customized piece of retro-yet-futuristic cartoon for each row.

                        Other changes blend old and new. The revised living room steers attention to the 1969 moon landing on TV -- featuring reports from Walter Cronkite, a former narrator of Spaceship Earth.

                        "We think the traditionalists will be happy," Jacobson said.

                        Finishing touches continue, but a few Epcot visitors may get a peek before the official opening. Elements to come later include language options selected by passenger (a Disney first) and more post-show goodies, including a game called Power City and a big globe pinpointing where each day's visitors live.

                          Reports are coming in from those who rode it last night. Most agree that it doesn't seem finished yet.

                          There are tweaks to the ascent part - but right now the decent section is almost totally dedicated to the new touch screens

                          The guests answer a series of questions and then presented 'their vision' of the future - in a flash animation type setup.

                          Here is one review of the early ride

                          I'm disappointed by the video screens on the decent Disney used to be about things you could only experience/do in Disney's world of imagination and fantasy. Now, it sounds like we are getting more and more things we do everyday at home

                            The attraction was open for about an hour this morning... someone has posted IN-RIDE pics on this other site. There aren't perfect, but great to see what's to come and shows the ride vehicles pretty good and some of the stuff you see. He says he will be posting video soon as well - check it out.

                            Come on Micechatters - get us some intel and photos!

                            Alas right now the people getting most of the info are people seriously willing to waste hours waiting.. or just get darn lucky
