Circle of Life Closed for Refurbishment?

Any updates to the supposed to new movie? Or even refurbishment?
On April 3 (the day it was scheduled to reopen), this sign was still outside the theater

The last few times Disney has let attractions under "refurbishment" remain closed past their re-opening dates, it's been bad news...
Off the top of my head I can think of 20K and Rocket Rods.

If Circle of Life really is closed for good, that's stinks for me because I love The Lion King...

Geesh! The more I keep reading, the more depressed I get about my favorite park and the desperate state of disrepair it's been allowed to fall into :arghh: I think what's so aggravating reading this thread is that there was no notice this was getting shut down for "renovations" and then when it's supposed to open, nope...nothing! It just sits there...like no one over there gives a ****!!!! :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: I think it's despicable that they just can NOT stick to their own timelines! I don't understand how Disney can put their ships into dry dock and have them completely refurbished in less time than it takes for them to do most of the park renovations. I bet that the new cruise ships will be built long before SWL opens :mad: And...off my rant :rolleyes:

Well, I am pleased to report that my family and I arrived at the theater thrilled to find it open with the carpet mural completely intact!

I asked the attending cast member about the closure and he said it was for carpet replacement.

My pavilion lives another day without a permanent closure/unused space!
It took almost three months for a carpet replacement? Since when does something simple like that take such a long time? There has to be another reason other than that.

There is. They didn't want to pay the few CM's it takes to keep it open while Soarin' is closed and the pavilion is rather empty. Someone likely received a bonus for this brilliant idea.

mold perhaps? cost cuts? finding the cheapest carpet from china and making sure it didnt have toxic chemicals? :p
