    As far as I know, Disney has not said anything official about BTMRR going down....period. Al Lutz mentioned a few months ago that it was supposed to go down in August for a lengthy, multi-month refurbishment. But so far it doesn't show on any of Disney's refurbishment schedules.

    Same thing with Indy. The only info I've heard comes from Al Lutz, but nothing at all from Disney.

      EDITOR’S NOTE 8/6: Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mt. will be closing
      for a major rehab this fall, and remain closed through most of 2013. The
      33-year-old coaster will receive a similar treatment as the one Space Mt. got in
      ’03-’05, (without the extensive foundation work that Space Mt. needed). New
      track will be installed, the load/unload area will be widened for 21st century
      riders, and a new ride control system tops it all off. The queue will be prepped
      for NextGen additions, and unlike the recent WDW Thunder rehab Tony Baxter has
      returned to his first E Ticket to plus up the show and the aesthetics. Take your
      last ride on Big Thunder 1.0 in September. - Al Lutz

        So they will have both Indy and BTMR closed during thanksgiving? That doesn't seem correct for 2 big rides to be closed during a major holiday week. Any chance Disney could wait until January for BTMR closure? Thanks
