Good News For A Change:

Published on January 31, 2014 at 12:01 am with No Comments

The refurbishment for DCA’s Little Mermaid ride we’d told you about in a Miceage Update last year is now back on. Burbank is beginning to loosen purse strings for Anaheim at least, while Orlando remains on a very short fiscal leash due to MyMagic+ cost overruns. DCA’s Mermaid refurb is currently slated for seven weeks from late March to early May and will fix a laundry list of cosmetic, lighting and scenery issues throughout the ride. No word yet how they’ll budget this Mermaid rehab for WDW’s version, much less schedule it. WDW’s version of Soarin’ is also in refurb purgatory, while DCA’s Soarin’ closes next month for a big HD upgrade.
