    So it looks like it's still a rumor since it appears that no one else has heard about this (or can confirm)?

    I haven't heard anything regarding this refurb but that doesn't necessarily mean its not happening. But I do know Thunder is going down late 2011/early 2012 for an extended refurb. 4-6 months.

    re: Splash Mountain closed until almost June?!(Merged)

    I don't see why this is something to complain about. I understand a lot of things are closed, but would you rather all of the Disneyland resort rides to just fall apart slowly then get to the point where it is cheaper to just replace it with an attraction that is not nearly as amazing as the ride that stood in its place. Some rides need longer refurbish times than others. Now when Indy gets its extended down time is when we should rejoice!

    (And yes, I know that not everyone is complaining....but do we want DLR to fall from glory again and fade to the state of WDW? We really should be thankful that Disney is opening their wallets to make our favorite attractions look even better!)

    That's what I was thinking is is been a while since Splash has been down......but it does seem like Disneyland will be dead with Splash and Matterhorn not going for a few months

    A loop sounds good for every ride!
    Disneyland's closed for all of 2011. See you in 2012. Snow White is now a water ride, Matterhorn has a fullsize basketball court where the Clippers have relocated to, and King Arthur's Carousel is suspended 250ft. in the air.
    Enjoy it while it lasts! LOL!

    What happened to the old Disney movie opening? The new ones just too long and not classic.

    At least they are doing it for the colder months. 5 months in the dead of summer would make me eternally grumpy.

    One attraction that needs to go down for an extensive refurb is Indy. I know many of us can point out all the show effects that haven't been working for years.

    That said, it doesn't bother me one bit that Splash and Matterhorn are going down for a while.

    Splash is true. Haven't heard a thing about Matterhorn aside from here.

    Nothing wrong with this closure at all. Splash in Florida closes for 1-3 months every year in January. It's about time you guys step up to our level of maintenance!

    I'm glad they are giving it some TLC.. It's not like it won't be back. And it's not like all of us won't be going back again when it's open...

    Perhaps Baxter is planning on spending some extra money on "+'ing" it at that point as well? Who knows...

    this is pure terrible-ness. :'(

    I guess no one can go to their laughing place now.
