Siemens Ends Contract With Disney – What Will Become Of Spaceship Earth?

Posted by July 1, 2017 Comment

Siemens, the company that sponsors Spaceship Earth, Illuminations, and It’s A Small World in Disneyland, has decided to not renew their 12 year long contract with Disney. Siemens is one of the largest industrial manufacturers in the world, and have helped with developing a number of items used in the parks. Siemens also sponsored the ABC studio sign in Times Square, so this could potentially change the landscape of a number of heavy tourist spots in America.

At this point I wonder if Disney really needs Siemens to keep certain rides in operation. Spaceship Earth is really the only one that’s in any real danger, as the aftershow part is all Siemens products. Disney could easily remove all Siemens signage, or find another sponsor. Since Walt Disney World is one of the busiest theme parks in the world–pulling in 52 million annually–it shouldn’t be hard to find someone to replace them with. But for now the fate of Spaceship Earth is unknown, but I for one am remaining positive.
