What @iHeartDisneylandCats described is more or less how the DLR 50th worked, however. They refurbished/updated everything they could before the start of the 50th. They tried to keep downtime to a minimum during the celebration, although that isn't always possible.Really, truly, glad you don't make ANY of the decisions or have any influence over those that do.... Updates and remodels are a GOOD thing.
Currently SSE is looking to be closed October 2021. But the primary focus of the 50th will be the MK.Was there for the 50th at DL. That was near the end of the "let's be as cheap as humanly possible/Pressler era." There was lots of bunting, a cool fireworks show, thank god the buildings were finally painted (maintenance had been awful in the years prior), and YES everything was running... and a few attractions even got minor plusses. However, I think most people would have happily traded all of that for some mega new attractions/major ongoing renovations...
SSE up or down, we'll have a bunch of mega new attractions to celebrate for the 50th.
AgreeIf it's done right, let it be 3 years. I don't want another Space Mountain situation.
Don't worry. They're getting rid of Dame Judi Dench and replacing her with Lil Wayne.For how long have we all been lamenting the change from the Irons version to the present...whatever you want to call it? Now, we all have to worry about what it might become. This is troubling.
At first glance I took "Two years may be optimistic" to mean "They may scale down the plans and shorten the refurb, but we'd miss out on some of the cool stuff" . . . but putting it in the context of everything Martin's saying and what Tom reported about the extensive refurb, with (rumored) track replacement and extension, moving of the load area, and updating of nearly every scene . . . I'm starting to think you're right, it MIGHT be longer . . .OH NO that is worse.......
So you are saying it could be LONGER?!?!
