    Question Splash and Matterhorn refurb rumors???

    So I have been hearing that both Splash Mountain and the Matterhorn will be going under an 18 month refurbishment starting in January. Is this true? Or is it just a rumor?

    If it is true, I am going to be very sad

    I know Splash Mountain will have a refurb done, but I believe it's not a huge one, and will be up again by the time summer rolls around. Haven't seen anything concrete on Matterhorn though.

    Splash won't be down for 18 months, but almost 6 months. :0
    Nothing is set for Matterhorn.

    Attractions at Disneyland break down all the time. I think Indy and Big Thunder are the worst offenders.

    Matterhorn was supposed to get new bobsleds, with new seating, a while ago, and it got postponed with a new set date...and I'm wondering if it won't be postponed again. It just doesn't make sense that Disney would have two major E-Tickets down for about half a year. They've been especially careful about staggering refurbs recently.

    Re: Splash and Matterhorn refurb rumors???

    Does it make sense to anyone else that they'll push some of the major refurbs off a year or two so that they can have The Little Mermaid and RSR soaking up some of the displaced crowds? Or am I overthinking this (always a possibility :P ) ?

    My first ever Disneyland trip will be in July, and my fingers/toes are all crossed that both rides will be open by then.

    Re: Splash and Matterhorn refurb rumors???

    There are seperate threads detailing these two rumours:
    Splash and Matterhorn refurb rumors???
    Matterhorn closing for 18 months in January 2011?

    To summarize:

To clarify, although the Matterhorn often goes down around that time and a refurb is expected sometime soon for trackwork and the Installation of new trains (which all reports say still aren't even completely manufactured), Splash Mt. is the only confirmed lengthy e-ticket closure for the first quarter of 2011.

    More likely they'll try to get it done beforehand knowing how many people will likely come to see those new attractions.

    ^Exactly. Having major attractions down throughout the resort could theoretically lower capacity which is precisely what they don't want during grand openings.
