Narrated by Dame Judi Dench, Spaceship Earth tells the story of human connection from the dawn of recorded time to the 21st century’s cyber age. The scenes involve life-like Audio Animatronic figures and are highlighted in sequential order below:
Dame Judi Dench ends your journey with this “The choices we’ve made over the last 40,000 years have been inventing the future one day at a time. And now it’s your turn. Let’s have some fun creating the future shall we? ” At this point, you can design your “future” on the touch screen on the seat-back in front of you. Your face will be super-imposed on the screen so hopefully you smiled at the beginning of the ride.
Spaceship Earth is the first attraction you encounter when you enter the park, but don’t make the mistake of going on it then. You’ll want to take advantage of shorter lines at the more popular attractions like Test Track, Soarin’ and Mission: SPACE the first hour or two after the park opens. Spaceship Earth loads quickly and continuously so you’ll be able to go on it later with minimal wait.
We parents love the bewildered look on Tad and Lily’s faces when they’re reminded there was a time when there were no cell phones and lap tops. Spaceship Earth is an Epcot must-do for the Frog Family. It really captures the message of the entire park.
The Spaceship Earth attraction is located inside the iconic Spaceship Earth sphere and actually spirals through the 18-story interior. The ride lasts 16 minutes and is suitable for all ages. Each ride vehicle seats two guests and has no lap restraints. The door to each ride vehicle closes when the attraction begins.
Guests must transfer from their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to board the ride vehicle.

It took two years and two months to build Spaceship Earth. That's 40,800 manhours! The lines for Spaceship Earth are usually longest during morning hours, and at their shortest just before Park closing. Disney's Magical Moments pins are designed to interact with this attraction.
Spaceship Earth weighs 16 million pounds and is made up of 11,324 triangles. And did you know that rainwater never falls off of the sphere? It’s absorbed into the ball and funneled away.
