ceremony for the new Space Mountain attraction and its surrounding area in Tomorrowland at Tokyo Disneyland® Park was held on May 16, 2023, officially launching the renovation project.

Additionally, the new Tomorrowland plaza will express the connection between Earth and the universe, representing an image of a future where humans are in harmony with nature.
After dark, the area will draw guests into a spectacular world of light and soundscapes.
