    When is space Mountain closing for the Halloween overlay?

    Hello,

    This has probably been posted somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. I even did a search on this forum.

    Does anyone know the dates Space Mountain will be down for the Halloween overlay?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Jennifer

    Re: When is space Mountain closing for the Halloween overlay?

    I believe it's either September 9th or 10th it closes until September 25th, when it opens with the holiday overlay. It's about two weeks that it's closed. With the Haunted Mansion 40th event, then overlay closure, as well as the huge D23 event, not to mention many other post-summer ride refurbs, it's looking like a chaotic month. If you don't live close and are vacationing to DLR I wouldn't recommend September as the month to go. Unless you can handle all the ride closures, of course.

    haven't heard a thing. only thing i think i remember hearing is that it will be down for about 2 weeks, and it has to be open in time for halloweentime, which starts sept 25. so i guess you can do the math.

    I like the whole seasonal thing they do, but I am really getting sick of all these ride closures for changing out the themes! i can't believe we only have the real HM for like 6 or 7 months out of each year now.

    I'm getting ready to have a complete breakdown here. We've already booked our flights and hotel and tickets for a mid-September trip, and now it seems like every time I go online I just get bad news. Space Mountain isn't the biggest deal for us, but I'm getting more and more nervous.



    At this point all I can do is pray that neither Small World nor Pirates will be closed. Either of those would just be an absolute heartbreaker, and our travel tickets aren't refundable.

    How long will the overlay last?

    When will it be closed(and for how long) again to take the overlay down?

    I was hoping to find that same answer since we are thinking of a trip the first week in Nov. but don't want to come if it is down. Anyone in the know?

    Don't worry, about ISAW. It generally closes around October to install their christmas overlay. And I don't think POTC will be closed for refurb in September. But most of the rides will be open.

    Why would POTC be closed?

    The whole multiple overlay thing is getting really ridiculous. To have three major attractions closed four to five weeks out of the year to do switch outs is not very customer friendly.

    oh my dear! please don't fret too much about it. one thing or another is always closed at the parks. heck Space was closed for going on years when they did their major refurb and opened again in 05!
    the good news is that IASW just got it's big overhaul, so it's not going to have refurbs anytime soon, ust to close before christmas for decorations. Pirates might get a day or two off here and there, but looks like you'll be there just in time to catch it this Sep before it goes down a couple of days!

    but even with a couple of closures, you are going to have PLENTY to do my dear.
