    Re: Late summer and early fall ride refurbishments and closures

    I'm all for refurbs and the two on here I'm most excited to see are Mickey's house and King Arthur's Carousel. Mickey's house needs a serious paint job and King Arthur's Carousel is absolutely filthy and it's rusting at the top. They both need some work done, bad.

      At least none of those are too extensive.

        Kind of bummed that HM will be closed on my next trip since I'm not allowed to ride many of my favorites. I was hoping we'd get there before the overlay! Oh well, such is life.

        Edited to add in a "thank you posting this"! Really appreciate the info.

          It might be a misconception on my part, but does the Haunted Mansion closure seem like it's a little longer than it was last year? I'd love to think it means they're cooking up something new and fun for HMH.

            And still no Alice closure as was rumored... Bummer.

                No, it's the same as last year. I went the last day it was open last year and it was the end of August.

                  Thank you for posting this!

                  Most of it is stuff that I figured out from looking at last year's refurb schedule but there are some non-Halloween related closures. I'm sad that King Arthur's will be down on our next trip but am glad it is getting some TLC. Of course my biggest disappointment is that Big Thunder will be down, but I've known that for many months... we love that ride .

                  I think it is very curious that Mark Twain is having a closure right before Halloweentime starts - same exact dates that Space Mountain will be down for its Halloween overlay. Could it be that Mark Twain will be getting some Halloween decorations or something? (It doesn't usually, does it?) It just had an extensive refurb so it is curious to me that it is having another closure and right during those dates.

                    The Twain is just getting routine maintenance, along with the Columbia. They always go down about twice a year.

                      Just an FYI, Haunted Mansion and Space Mtn. are closing so that Halloween decorations/overlay can go up; not an actual refurbishment.

                      (Just in case someone goes in Dec/Jan and thinks "Geez, they just refurbished this last fall but it looks exactly the same".)

                            The Columbia NEEDS a refurb BADLY
