I am just going to guess here... he will hit "DELETE".
Is there ANY chance we will get something close to the glory of Splash Mountain in the near future?
Sure. In DAK and DHS.
I'm just hoping the Refurb ends on time and opens on the 17th! So I can snag a few rides! My trip is 11/12-11/19 !
Oh yeah I saw it and thought I could change it before anyone saw
Oh, you had me thinking I was seeing things lol.
Thx for the lookout
They're gonna put in the Big Thunder effects in that never went in there...
Okay, color me confused on this one, I rode Splash not long ago and I couldn't pick out many effects that weren't working. Is this more of a behind the scenes refurb or could we even see something added?
Glad to see my favorite attraction getting some love. It would be nice if they repainted the exterior during this time. Big Thunder and Haunted Mansion both look phenomenal with their new paint jobs.
I think they do a great job with the refurbs. Always so bright and fresh! And people who are concerned with the timeframe: Newflash! There are no "downtimes" at WDW anymore!
Last time I rode, I noticed several areas where water was leaking where it shouldn't have been leaking. (Ceilings of interior areas and from structural members). The ride is almost 25 years old, Whatever this refurb may be, it looks like it may require expediting and can't wait until 2018.
So the speculation for the Splash Mountain fall closure is that something else is going on in January. Do we know what that is? The expectation right now is that Mission: SPACE and Great Movie Ride will be closed during Splash Mountain's general refurb time, but I would expect that an additional MK attraction would be the reason this was moved up. Has anyone indicated what that might be, could Space be getting a true refurb?
At least it will be open in January and those evening rides are pretty empty..
When we were there a few weeks ago, there were several notable issues. Some of the smaller figures (mostly birds) were suffering very limited motion or were completely static. Audio was wildly inconsistent, with areas like the first "How do you do?" in the outdoor run after the lift being barely audible, and overbearingly loud in others. There were a few obviously blown speakers, especially bad in the first block table after the brier patch, by the waterfall. Finally, it seemed like they were having a terrible time with blocking intervals, with manual block resets happening several times causing long periods of standstill in the queue.
Is there a realistic chance this refurb gets done early (does that ever happen)? I'll be there Nov 1st - 5th and realize I'm probably out of luck.
I think this is a case of Disney knowing they will still have high attendance based on MNNSH and Food and Wine.
