    Big Thunder Mtn. RR Refurb in December??

    According to the DL website, BTMRR is scheduled for a five-day refurb beginning December 1.

    But, I saw a footnote here from Aladdin dated 10/28/08 that BTMRR is supposed to be back up and running on November 20.

    Is it being done now? Later? Not at all?

    I'm just bummed by the "official" calendar's info because those are the exact five days we'll be visiting.

    If anyone has additional info, it'll be much appreciated. Thanks!

    They are adding the loop to Big Thunder.

    Or is it the Christmas overlay.

    Honestly, this is the first I'm hearing of this. Hmmm ...

    Thanks for the laughs anyway! (And I think "Clarence" would look just dandy in a Santa suit! )

    Hope it works out that it's not closed for you. BTMRR is my favorite of the "mountains".

    When we were at WDW last year Big Thunder was closed until our last day there. We made a specific effort to go to MK to ride it.

    No answers for you - I just know that Dec 1 is the last day of my AP which is depressing enough and to have BTMRR closed that day will make it even more so...

    BUT when I was visiting in October, right up to the night before I left Seattle, the official Calendar showed Jungle Cruise as closed for 3 or 4 days of our trip. It never actually closed! So, who knows how things will actually turn out.
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Thanks, sir clinksalot! I'd make those extra steps to get there, too.


    I hope it works out that way this time, tinkermonkey. (And I'm sorry to hear about your pass and the timing - if it turns out the DL calendar is right. Not fair.)

    I've been watching it, too, because we'll be there the 4th - 7th and it's said all this time that it reopens on the 6th. I'm really hoping it does, but I've been keeping an eye on it in case it changes.

    Anyone know the purpose of said refurb?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Probably just routine maintenance.
