Thunder had a similar 4 day refurb last year as well.

That would make sense - the 7DMT ride video seem to have been rather successful. Although I didn't see a permit filed for WD Imaging for BTMRR...

And the MK Country Bear Jamboree makes me wish the DL version still existed. I love Pooh, but he sure knows how to take a Pooh on my favorite attractions.* *so sorry/betcha never heard that one before

Hmm... looks like the Space Mountain refurb was cancelled or changed.

Space Mountain is currently listed as open with a 45 minute wait time.

Following up on this refurb, I'm wondering if this is adding video cameras to the attraction. Space Mountain is currently in a 4 day refurb right now as well which could be for the same thing.

I know, I know. Let your anger out. I felt a bit of that too.

Was. :mad:

I didn't get to ride Pooh since it was closed but another ride that was better at WDW was SWSA. Fully agree on Toad. Riding made me want it back in MK.

Yeah. It was so great to ride Toad's again. I wish they'd found a new place for it to live at WDW... I don't like either Pooh ride very much...and don't see either as superior.

I'm also not sure what to make of DLs Pooh ride. I should also note, that the DL Mr. Toads really makes me wish the MK version still existed.

So true! :hilarious:

With Tower of Terror it is not even close.
