  • News Dl Refurb List Updated - No Longer Lists BTMRR Refurb (1/7/2013 - 10/30/2013)

    Does anyone know why? We were planning a quick trip on 1/2-4 to ride it before it goes down...Now I am wondering if it is necessary. Duh!...Of course it is...just wondering how much focus I need to put on BTMRR now.

    As much as I'd be glad to have BTMRR available in 2013, I am puzzled by this. If they really decided not to refurb it, I wonder why.

      That is odd.

        Maybe Johnny was not available to model for the new AAs in his Tonto persona.

                There was no mention of Disneyland getting the backstory as well as the interactive queue, only WDW.

                  It'll probably still go down for 11 months, just not the same "11 months". Perhaps there is an issue with the timing or critical parts/materials that requires a delay in the start of construction.

                  Maybe for the earthquake effect they were going to have Twinkies rain down on riders ....

                    It would be great news for us if the refurb really is postponed.

                    We went to WDW last Spring, and their BTMRR was down for refurb. A major bummer, since that is one or our favorite rides. We will be at DLR this coming Spring and were saddened to see that DLR's BTMRR was scheduled for its refurb. We only get to a park once a year, so it was looking like two straight years of no BTMRR was going to be it for us.

                        That's why I said "... were going to have ..." Maybe they're waiting until Bimbo takes over Twinkie manufacturing (notice I didn't say "baking").

                          This is a good possibility. Well... except for maybe the twinkie part... A couple of times I've heard of stuff falling off the rehab list then suddenly showing back up again. There are a lot of factors involved with an extensive rehab like this, and its possible a supplier or something was unable to for certain to get parts ready or something. I wouldn't write off the rehab just yet.

                              It's probably as simple as a parts delay or something like that. Or a refurb on another ride is taking priority over it.

                                Didn't we just go thru this w/ Indy and Alice falling off the list and then back on (in the case of Alice, it is still "pending" or officially postponed)???

                                Selfishly, I would love for it to stay open, but for the good of the park, it needs to under the knife ASAP.

                                If it is a simple postponement, I am pretty sure it is tied to the (rumors) PFF near the castle and its' work schedule and the fact that it is a bigger project than many ppl realize. A major addition PLUS a major refurb for BTMRR in such a tiny space? I am sure it is hard to pull off, and aside from any other reason, I'd bet on conflicts of space as the #1 reason.

                                  With Indy we did, but not with Alice. Alice has never officially been scheduled, but rumors of it closing have been wrong over and over.


                                  I want to add, just speculation for fun, that since Big Thunder Trail, the route behind BTM that goes from Fantasyland to Frontierland, will be close there is a reason why. They have to dig it up to put the tunnel in for the BTMRR expansion.

                                      I never trust the site, anything can happen, after Space Mountain being down for so long....I worked Space that morning when it was suppose to be down for a couple of hours. Instead I had to tell people it was going to be down for 2 years, tons of sad family's that day.
                                      I would go to ride it just in case, if You really really feel you need to and just in case it does show up on the list again soon!
                                      Little and broken, but still good.

                                        On a side note, the BTMRR refurb from 1/7/2013-10/30/2013 still comes up under the refurb info on DLR's automated message. 714 781 4636
