    They build Disneyland in a year, but it takes 15 months to rehab a ride...glad it's open, but this should be an indicator that something has gone wrong with getting things done in America! Can't wait until the end of the year to take a ride with my family.

    Praying Big Thunder opens a week earlier than expected so I can ride it...

    I hope this is true, but I'll wait to believe it until I see it...

    Well, too late for my trip, but I'm happy for all those going in March and later!

    Just a good excuse for a trip later this year, right?

    A lot of things have changed since 1954. Building materials. Construction methods. Inspection and safety requirements. Seismic regulations. Etc, etc, etc.

    Also, it is far simpler to build a ride from scratch as things go together in the order intended than it is to take part of a ride apart and put that back together. Taking the track out of a fully themed environment without damaging it and putting it back in isn't super easy. Not to mention the ride control systems wiring, electronics, lighting packages, etc, all integrated tightly into the themed environment.

    So yes... it took 3 months longer than it took to build the whole park.

    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

    Big Thunder comes off the Disneyland.com refurbishments list on April 1st, the last day available on the calendar. Barring a seriously unfunny joke, it looks like the end is near. I am guessing the 31st is a placeholder and that it will open sooner than that and come off the refurb schedule in March, after previews and adjustments.

    You can blame it for the most part on new regulations, likely the ADA if I were to guess. Most safety regulations wouldn't be that onerous to contend with, but if they had to make it handicap accessible then you would expect them to have to redo a lot of things which could have been a nightmare because the basic layout of the ride was already set in stone forcing them to work around things.

    What is the earliest you all think it could open? If it was back up while we are there, that would be cool. However, I'm a little nervous about them closing Pirates and Indy as a result.

    Isn't Pirates already scheduled for refurbishment April 28-May 22, and Indy March 17-May 8?

    Yes, but I was concerned they would close them down sooner if BTMRR opened sooner than predicted.
