EDIT: MickeyMania was absolutely correct! Screamscape has posted the following:
[FONT='Times New Roman', Times, Serif]2007 - Rockin’ Space Mountain - Confirmed - (10/4/06) Disney has announced that Space Mountain will add an all new Rockin’ soundtrack for just 16 weeks from 1/3/07 to 4/26/07, allowing guests to ride a ride through the greatest concert in the universe[/FONT]

Anyone have any comment on this plan? It is known that Disney Imagineers were not able to complete the orginally planned "Rockit Mountain" due to the bumped up timeline to get Space Mountain re-opened. Any idea why they would do this now, (maybe trying to get more people in)? Do you think or want them to still close Space sometime in the future to install and open "Rockit Mountain"?
I have seen the sign in the park before and it says Rockit, not Rockin. Does anyone know if this has been changed or have a pic of the sign?
Also, does anyone know if the plan is still to close it for a refurb where they can add the effects that imagineers wanted to add before but couldn't because they wanted the ride open earlier and cut the time from them to put the effects in. The reviews from Grad Night that the ride got were not very great. Anyone heard if its still planned ot be only a night time version of the ride? The website doesn't say that.
