Does anyone know what exactly is going to change in Spaceship Earth? Will Judi Dench still narrate? And what is the refurbishment timetable?

You’ll visit Egypt, which is part of the current version of the attraction, but it will be an Egypt like you’ve never seen before, transformed through the power of light. Throughout the attraction, you’ll hear new narration and see how light plays a central role in our shared human journey, coming to life in dynamic ways in a celebration of the magic that’s possible when we all come together. Spaceship earth will close on May 26 and reopens in late 2022 to early 2023.

Yes, but when they built Magic Kingdom it was nothing but bare dirt. When they redo Spaceship Earth they are not tearing the whole thing down and starting over. It's more complicated when you have to work around and existing structure. When SSE was built the first time much of the large set peices and objects were installed before the ball was completely sealed, now they don't have that luxury. Personally I would rather they take their time and get things right. SSE is to important of an icon to rush and screw things up (ex: Dinoland).

October 1, 2022, the park's 40th, would be almost 2.5 years. Pure, uneducated speculation but I wouldn't be surprised if that's the unofficial target completion date internally. Another 6 months would still allow it to be re-opened during the 40th celebration and right before the 2023 summer season begins.
