    Changes to Spaceship Earth Descent.

    There have been a few changes.. nothing 'drastic' but newer lighting effects added to the 'rock formations' on the right side making them more pronounced.. etc.. From what I understand the attraction is currently 'in-cycle' for a little TLC money and the descent may get a little more...
