    The earliest will probably be July.

      Oh! Gia - - I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that some miracle will occur to help it open in time for you.

      I just hope nothing pushes it back, I am going in July and it's tradition to ride it first. And my poor husband has never been!

          Thanks, Rose Red. Maybe we'll get to do the soft opening, if it really opens in July....

            Too bad its so late...

            I have family coming in from 2 different states the last week in June, and we're doing a reunion-type thing at Disneyland.. I'm an annual passholder, and live here in OC, so the date of opening doesn't bother me too much, but we thought the official date was May, and made plans accordingly. To wait until even Mid-July to open the thing is just silly. I'd think they'd want it up beginning of summer...

            As for the design, Paris Disneyland takes the cake for the greatest looking/riding of the 3 I've experienced (Paris, Disneyland, MK), and I'm quite bothered that they're changing it already. The theme and feel of that one was amazing. The Jules Verne influences were fantastic, and the ride was great. It was more intense than any other Disney ride I've been on. It was a masterpiece, and why they're changing it is beyond me.

            And on a totally off-subject interjection, Does anyone else think the dragon onder the castle in Paris is one of the coolest things in any Disney park? I was in that cave for some 40-odd minutes just watching, amazed with how cool our park isn't, in some ways...

              I totally agree both about the dragon AND Space Mountain. I'm completely floored that they would change such a perfect ride. In fact, I'd be thrilled if we had gotten that version of Space Mountain at Disneyland, Ca.

              The "Art Nemo" Jules Vern look of DLP is spectacular. With the change of Space and Buzz, I'm not sure what will happen to the theme.

              That theme would work great at Disneyland, Ca. But it would have to be applied to the entire land to be consistant.

                It would sure beat the heck out of the rustic look DL has now. Everything just looks so old and used up there, and the addition of buzz makes it look bad because of the bad color mix. If it had neutral colors that would go with anything it would be great!

                  You should see Tokyo Disney's Tomorrowland. It is REALLY sad.

                    The whole Tomorrowland does need a revamp... I've never seen a placeget an entirely new coat of white paint and still look so run-down. Think about it - if Walt were alive today, don't you think he'd be wanting to change things, make them as spectacular and up-to-date as possible? Of course! He always pushed the envelope of technology. That's what I loved so much about the Paris SM. It was so retro, but done with such up-to date technology that you almost believed the space cannon would work! We need to not be afraid to update the classics. If we want Disneland to keep drwning crowds 30 or 50 years from now, we HAVE to!

                        Ya know, we could make a darn good Tomorrowland with the cast-off attractions from other Disney parks. We could take Paris' discarded Space Mountain, give it back its real name "Discovery Mountain" so that we could have both ours and theirs. Trust me, they're so different that duplication would not be a problem.

                        Then build Horizons, so foolishly thrown away by Epcot, and voila - instant fantabulous Tomorrowland!

                          That is actually a very good idea. They don't even need to build the Horizons building. Just use the Starcade space (both upstairs and down. and the space over the Startrader.

                          Then they Could give us our own version of Mission Space, but using the Star Tours simulators instead of building the puke-mobiles that they have at Epcot.

                              The new Space Mountain at Paris maintains the Verne theme. It's an evolution of the story where the guinea pig experiements of the first Space Mountain went so well that they've altered the cannon's trajectory into deep space, which is reflected in the new cannon launch.

                              So it's not really an un-Verne story, it's simply a continuation of From The Earth To The Moon that was never written and, like the theme park version of a direct to video sequel, probably didn't need to be. We'll see, I have hope since I thought the ride was gorgeous just to study and look at through pictures.

                              Buzz... I don't know how they'll pull that off. My opinion is that the Studios need it more, and it'd fit in there.

                                I am SO happy to hear that. The logo on the web site looks anything but Vern-esque.

                                    Update: OK station has NOT changed from the old version(still the same old outer part). The only big change is that the big rocket in the middle is new and a new paint job to go with it.

                                      I don't know maybe I am just missing the signifigance of it all But what was the point of closing it down for so long to have the track and the station be the same as before...

                                      Oh well - I just can't wait to go on it again...

                                        Looking at the Space Mountain signage, I wonder if they are pondering a name change; possibly the "Los Angeles Space Mountain of Anaheim"...
