    Re: Blame it on DOSH? major Space Mountain closure coming

    I'd guess a SW refurb or a similar aesthetic being installed.

    it should be renamed "the Kessel Run"

    Re: Blame it on DOSH? major Space Mountain closure coming

    I noticed that some of the trains have sounded pretty loud when I was there for the last week. I could even hear it over the music on the ride on some of the trains. I wonder if they're not in the best of shape and are just going to keep them running through the Ghost Galaxy period because it's important for Halloween time (and the private parties) then just shut the ride down for an overhaul during the Holidays since it's not part of the theming. Just my guess because the whole time I was there I was thinking they needed to shut it down for awhile and work on the trains, as well as the lighting during the lift.

    Re: Blame it on DOSH? major Space Mountain closure coming

    It has been eight years since the last really major refurb for Space Mountain, maybe they will be doing repairs and finally installing what would be needed for a decent way to alternate between the day and night versions that were discussed in 2004-2005.
    The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.

    They'll probably fix the roof first, which is the more immediate need, and then shut down the ride in November to fix the inside. Well, if they have to add railings (or whatever) to the interior, at least we won't be able to see it!

    Now if they could only do something about Splash Mpuntain so the workers can finally get in there to fix the animatronics.

    Yes, let's trade the known, already marketed name for one from a line from a movie.

    If they aren't going to build new rides, re-theme the old ones.

    First I've heard that Splash might be closed. Why would that be happening? I thought they had a recent refurbishment. I'm toying with a January trip myself, and I agree that it would a shame if all those were closed. But during past early- to mid-January trips, Splash has been open.

    Oh dear no....

    My version of a Disney Star Wars as Sung to the John Williams theme by the same name:

    Oh Star Wars,
    Nothing but Star Wars,
    Disney bought those Star Wars,
    Now the war will never end.

    Oh Star Wars,
    Space Mt Tie Fighter Wars,
    More repeat value
    than cars Land.

    Yes, they'll have the Subs take us on a tour of Naboo,
    And the Autopia can Landspeed over Tatooine
    And hey, Darth Vader in his black and evil mask,
    Can be a cool replacement for Mike and Angie.

    --cue trumpets--

    Oh Star Wars,
    Those endless Star Wars,
    Disney will never let
    Wars come to an end.

    Star Wars
    Mark Hamils scar wars
    I'd rather eat burnt s'mores
    blah, blah, blah, blaaaaaaah...

    I don't think that could be sung with any other voice.

    That's right, it did just have the recent refurb, didn't it? I was searching to see if it had a history of being down in January, luckily for us the results I found dated from around 2004-2009 in January. It better be open.
