Epcot attendance rising because of boost from Mission: Space The Miami Herald

A rocket ride to the red planet is bringing tourists back into the orbit of Disney’s Epcot theme park. Mission: Space, a simulated voyage to Mars heavy on G-forces and “gee-whiz,” opened six months ago in Disney’s second-oldest park, and the results have been out of this world. Emphasizing the attendance boom was the sea of people watching Tuesday as Disney honored NASA’s two Mars rovers, currently rolling atop the martian rocks and dirt.
