  • [Question] Say it isn't so! POTC refurb?

    Just looked at the DLR calendar and it is showing POTC closed for refurbishment beginning October 13th through the end of October, which is as far as the calendar goes right now. We are going in November. I am hoping this is just a minor refurb since this is the first I have heard anything about it! Anyone have any info on how long it will be down?

      If it is scheduled for a regularly rehab it could be several weeks....I hope not too long, I will probably be back right before Thanksgiving!

        My guess is that they want to fix up the roof before the rainy season starts.

        Last year, after a heavy rain, the roof inside of the final scene before the final lift hill leaked so profusely that the ride had to be shut down until the leaking stopped.

        Of course though I could be totally wrong.

            Thanks for the heads up - I hadn't looked at the calendar yet for my October trip. Then I freaked when I saw the calendar because Jungle is down too - but then it is only down M-W of the week. My 4 year old talks about DL in terms of his favorite rides of which Jungle and Pirates are his top 2. So, yeah, this is going to be fun and challenging. Here's hoping he loves TSMM!!
            I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

                Kritter why would you want them to leave...I think they ended up being a good addition

                  I wouldn't worry. All rides need routine maintenance and POTC is next in line for a bit of freshening up. I doubt anything drastic will be happening.

                    Jack is OK but Barbossa is terrible. So says I.

                      I hope it is done quick..I liked the Jack addidtions as well- It's one of my top in DL. Hey off topic, but does anyone know when Small World will be up and running- It feels like it has been ongoing for a LONG time now...

                        POTC needs to fix the final lift. That seems to be where the problems are coming from.

                        Small world should be back in November and Welcome to MiceChat!

                          Maybe they will be doing the additional changes that Al Lutz scooped a couple of years back. Didn't he say they were adding Will and Lizbeth?

                              Welcome, welcome. Truly a Disneygeek's paradise other than Disneyland itself. Look around some of the other forums too. Chances are you'll find something else you like too.

                              Enjoy!
