Mission:SPACE is Epcot's and Disney's most technologically advanced attraction to date. With the help of NASA advisors, Imagineers have created the first ride system ever that takes guests straight up in simulated flight. This one-of-a-kind astronaut experience puts the rider through a simulated space adventure, from pulse-racing liftoff to the sensations of traveling though outer space on a mission to Mars. Before lift-off, each guest will be briefed on the journey about to be undertaken and allocated a role, pilot, engineer, commander or navigator. Then it's time to get strapped in aboard the (simulated) X-2 rocket and prepare for launch. Destination?...Mars! Once the g-force's of lift off pass and your in orbit, your mission begins and each individual is instructed to perform various tasks as you proceed. However, things don’t go quite according to plan and there's plenty of twists and turns to keep you alert and ensure your mission is a successful one.

New for 2006, an alternative version of Mission:SPACE, which eliminates the effects caused by the spinning centrifuge is now in operation. Guests can now choose which experience they would like to ride and will be allocated a colour coded ticket to signify which they wish to do. Orange for the full version or Green for the toned down version. This now offers those who suffer from motion sickness or other health concerns the opportunity to ride Mission:SPACE when otherwise it might not have been an option.
