    Construction On Top Floor of Starcade and Space Mountain Queue!!

    They are building what seems to be shade structures all around the outside queue where the landing pad is. They are also painting and refurbishing the inside of the top floor of the starcade. Anyone know what is going on?

    Maybe it'll be coming back to operation.

    I can easily imagine that one of the largest complaints they received about Space Mountain was the lack of shade on the outside queue area.

    They are huge pieces of metal with a bar that extends over the queue so I am not quite sure if they are shade structures yet. But that would be my best guess since it goes over the queue. It appears they are adding more each night. There is also a structure that is covered in tarps.

    I would imagine exit serveys said they would like more shade.. and thus add shade strutures... esp since this can get bad on many days... (maybe they should try to get you to buy drinks when in line... Other parks do that in the summer.. and this is going to be a long line.)

    small drink stand with a person walking around selling it in areas not near it... (wouldn't be too bad..)

    The fact that they didn't have shade there already baffles me. It's just a huge cement frying pan out there during the day, and shade should have been a main priority for the que are from day one. Even misters would be a welcome addition up there. It's got to be one of the hottest que areas in the park (while Jungle Cruise is the muggiest)...

    I've noticed that last night when I went to DL to ride SM. I am thinking that that might either be something coming up soon or something used for Rock It Mountain...

    Misters are awsome ....... There's more than one ride at the resort that could use them ....... especially at the relatively shadeless DCA ......

    Back OT:

    Maybe they could transform the upstairs queue area into an ODV cart corral .... sell drinks and snacks to those waiting in line, and clear out some crowded walkways in the process .....

    Re: Construction On Top Floor of Starcade and Space Mountain Queue!!

    I think having an ODV or two up there would be quite welcome...maybe even have them space-themed. I know while waiting in that line, I could sure use a coke or a toll house cookie ice cream sandwich

    Kinda cutting it close here with this construction...must not be anything too elaborate if it'll be done within the next week. A welcomed addition, however.

    http://www.micechat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7515 <-- Peoplemover Construction thread

    TomorrowlandTourist: Quick question, did the Peoplemover ever travel through the second floor of the Starcade? I seem to remember it doing so, because while standing in line for Space Mountain at about 4:00 PM yesterday, there were a few people (I'm guessing Execs.) inspecting that area. Could be nothing, but I'm just curious.

    Gemini Cricket: I believe it did. But it has been a long time, my memory could be cloudy.

    Eh?

    And thank goodness that they're putting shade up there. I was lucky when I went on SM, it was morning and foggy...when I got off the ride the sun came out. Felt bad for all those people up in line.

    Maybe it's something for the official reopening on the 17th? Like a stage sort of thing?

    Re: Construction On Top Floor of Starcade and Space Mountain Queue!!

    I like this. It means that

    #1, they are listening to guest's complaints (About the lack of shade, and the BAD and rather VISABLE condition of the upper floor in the Starcade)

    And, most importantly

    #2, DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!

    And yes, the PM travles behind the Starcade 2nd level back wall. On its way into the back of SM. If would be nice to make the upper portion of Starcade, or Starcade itself the Q for the new PM 2.0 or whatever they make it. The platform is just a lost cause. Leave it up to the Rockets. The Starcade would make a GREAT mass transportation center of the future!!! But that would mean the Xwing would come down. Well then it may end up in Ebay and find a good loving home.
