On schedule, the Land closed on Sunday 2nd January to begin the work on modifying the entire pavilion to accommodate Soarin'. Immediately after closing, crews began removing the contents of the food court area, ready for construction crews to begin work. The exterior of the building is fully walled-off, and work has begun on removing concrete on the ground in front of the pavilion, so the rehab work is not just limited to inside the building. Most of the work is geared towards increasing guest flow capacity into, around, and out of the pavilion to handle the large number of guests expected to be riding Soarin' each hour.
