Siemens Corporation, who is the official corporate sponsor of Disney Parks and more specifically Spaceship Earth and Illuminations at Epcot, announced last June that they will not be renewing their contract with Disney. And it looks like the removal of the sponsor has officially begun.
The Siemens sign remains up at the main entrance to Spaceship Earth, but on one side, the name has been removed from the Project Tomorrow sign. The Siemens name has also been removed from the Epcot times guide.
Siemens has been a sponsor of Disney Parks for the past ten years.
Across the globe, Siemens also sponsors it’s a small world at Disneyland in California. Sylvania, whose parent company is Siemens, used to sponsor the Osborne Family Light Show at Hollywood Studios and also their technology was used to construct the popular Radiator Springs Racers attraction at California Adventure in Disneyland among others.
The question now is, “What will happen with Spaceship Earth?” As we recently reported, we were thinking that Siemens would renew their contract and give Spaceship Earth a much-needed refurbishment. Now, with this news coming out it’s unsure what will happen with this iconic attraction. Interestingly enough, this will be the first time Spaceship Earth does not have a corporate sponsor.
