Does this include the entrance/dismantling of One Man's Dream?
Because the entrance will be on the backside of the current building- does this mean we will have Toy Story land built by 10/1/2016? With the coaster finishing up in 2017 (like SDMT)?
I am assuming that TSMM will re-open with it's current entrance and eventually switch to the new entrance when TSL is complete.

Forgive me if this has already been addressed, but how could the installation of ONE Toy Story Midway Mania track take almost 2 years to complete? Everything has already been designed. And the ride is pretty bare in terms of any show scenes or detail. It relies almost entirely on screens.

I had the same question when they first announced this project. I have to think that 10/2016 at least includes the new entrance configuration from the current backstage area.

My guess is this: they planned the development to take until late 2016 because they were planning to complete some version of "Toy Story Playland" at that time and wanted to open everything at once (since it would involve a new configuration for TSMM entrance/exits). Along the way, they decided to change or delay the plans for now called Toy Story Land with a larger/more complex ride in the Slinky Dog coaster which pushed back the opening of that land to 2017 or so -- but the TSMM addition was already budgeted and established to not be done until later in 2016 and now that timeline is "set".

Then again, I wouldn't be surprised to see the new TSMM track open by (say) spring break in 2016 to increase capacity in the park if lots of other things are closing.

They didn't start demo until last september (that's a year).
 
End of permit doesnt indicate ride openings.
Well, with Disney it's normally fairly close on their projects, however yes, it could well open early 2016 if they wanted.

However, that permit date sort of makes sense as a theoretical time frame to open the track. One would think TSMM would need to go down for a bit to reconfigure the queue and since September is a dead period, that would be the only time when it would be feasible to take the most popular ride off-line in a park with only 5 rides...

Very interesting. I would assume there would be some backend work that would need to be completed when TSL is completed. Makes sense that they use the exisiting infrastructure while still adding capacity to the attraction. Should be intersting to see how the queue will be used for 3 tracks.

I think a great example of how Disney can manipulate the completion dates for their own benefit. Stretch out the project or get it done as fast as possible, they are in total control :)
