Though it had some "minor" updates it was a very long refurb... The things that they added make the ride fun and new again, I never get old of this ride but this is a refurb that Disney hit on the head perfectly. I would actually consider it a "major" refurb/ upgrade. New trains and a much smoother ride with amazing effects that are not really wowed until seen in person.

Then you will get the peak season hot summer complaints informing us it makes no sense to do this when you can do it in a slower colder (not that FL is ever cold ;) to me) season.

Wonder if we will get the BTM mini update like they one in Cali got?

"mini update'? Disneyland's BTM was closed for over 14 months for its update; January 7, 2013 to March 17, 2014.

I'm not sure Magic Kingdom Park operations could handle a mountain E Ticket being closed for over a year. Especially in the age of FP+ where people are reserving 90-second teacup rides 60 days in advance.

True, but didn't we just have the major overhaul? Couldn't the falling rock tunnel be added in a few weeks? Oh wait, its TDO.. baaahahahahahahahaha

I think the new trains threw them off because they weighed more from my understanding. Therefore they had to recalibrate the whole ride as if it were new. It was also an extensive referb for the whole ride to be touched up to look new with the additions they put in.

For the first time in forever (pun intended), I might actually get to ride Kali -- will be open for the first 3 days of our trip. Been several times, and it's either been on refurb or out of commission every time.

Does Splash Mountain close for a month every winter? It was shut down for all of February this year, and now it's closing again for most of January. Seems odd to close it regularly for that long, is there a particular reason?
