  • News Disneyland and California Adventure refurbishments through early summer.

    Edit 3-24-12 Newly updated closure information can be found in my follow-up post a few down.

    I found this update online earlier today on one of Disney's sites and throught it would be useful as there are detailed dates for both attraction closures, and for building refreshments. I didn't see a lot of it posted on the weekly update, and wanted to get the information out to everybody, and hopefully next week it can be added to the update. Also there is a mention of "Staircase" having it's 2nd level closed for reconstruction through winter 2014, I can only assume that's a typo of Starcade. Hope anybody planning trips will find it useful, and I've edited it to remove the attractions that already re-opened.

    Looks like they might be doing something about that wacky old Monster's Inc. facade

      Thanks for the list!

      A ten week refurb for Goofy's Sky School? Could they actually add sound throughout or something interesting? Went on it once, and that was the most boring ride I've ever seen at a Disney park. The entry area was nice, but the ride was meh.

        What "Staircase" are they referring to?

          I notice the Little Mermaid ride wasn't listed. I wonder if this means that they'll change the Arial "Dole whip" head overnight and not have to close it down, or if they just haven't decided when to schedule it yet.

              Interesting that GSS is scheduled for a longer refurb than the Monster's Inc. facade...

                If this is a mistake and they do mean the starcade, does this mean that they are finally going do something with the second floor?

                    As long as everything is open when Carsland opens...Its all good..but they REALLY need to make sure nothing goes down for the first two weeks after Carsland opens...The Walls have been up for too long

                          Ahh man!! Matterhorn will still be closed on my next trip. Oh well, it will still be nice to get a couple days in at the resort.
