Today Marks the End of Siemens – Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts Partnership


As we reported back in June, Siemens announced that they would be ending their 12-year partnership with Walt Disney World Parks and Reports. Today, October 10, 2017, marks the official end of that partnership.

Siemens was the title sponsor of Spaceship Earth and Illuminations at Epcot. In addition, they also sponsored it’s a small world at Disneyland Park. A new sponsor has not been named for these attractions and it is not known if/when one will be.

It’s not hard to tell that Spaceship Earth is in need of a refurbishment. Many were worried that with the absence of a corporate sponsor, that the attraction might not receive the touchups it needs. However, after the D23 Expo, it’s no secret that Disney is really focusing their resources on Epcot – especially Future World. So, maybe a Spaceship Earth overhaul is also in the works for another phase of the Epcot’s reimagining.

Rumors online have also been pointing to changes coming to Epcot’s popular nighttime show, Illuminations. With the absence of Siemens as it’s corporate sponsor, it’s interesting to see what changes might come to it as well.

Keep following along for the latest developments.
