    yeah...they cant afford to do it earlier, but they really cant push it back anymore.

    i found evidence that indicates thyve pushed back this refurb since 1989 due to attendance concerns and budget, but now....theyre out of time...it NEEDS to happen!! yay!!

      Universal slogan for 2009/10: Come and visit the Enchanting World of Hogwarts. Ride in the wacky world of Krustyland with The Simspons Ride, and rock out on Hollywood Rip it, Rock it, Ride it.

      WDW slogan for 2010: Space Mountain, ride it before it collapses again.
      Sadly, it would appear this might be a good marketing slogan.

      Time is running down for management to make major decisions to update things like Space, add new attractions and entertainment and generally freshen up the stalest park (well, maybe not ... the Park Formerly Known as The Disney-MGM Studios is very sad in its own right) in Orlando.

      Because Universal and Busch are making all sorts of investments in their parks and Disney is relying on stale magic and marketing to pull the wool over the eyes of undiscerning tourists who don't know any better.

        I don't know what 'evidence' you've found, but I will say that Space Mountain should have definitely been gutted and rebuilt at some point in the 1990s.

        It is sad and laughable that it is running in its current state and that fans defend it.

          I don't know. "Space Mountain, ride it before it collapses again." lacks any sort of mention of dreams and/or magic. How else will I know it is the vastly superior dream filled DisneyPark product?

              all i can say is this....ive seen hidden documents that were stored in a very obscure location that detailed all the reasons that the refurb was pushed back since 1989. This even includes lists of parts on back order and such

                Space Mountain: Live the dream! Ride it before the magic wears out (and it collapses again)...MUCH better.

                Frankly, although I think the Hollywood coaster sounds interesting, I think it has issues. For example, on the music selection, is that on-ride or afterwards for your music video? How broad is the range of songs? How do you input them? HOW ARE THEY GOING TO STREAMLINE THIS PROCESS FOR A ROLLER COASTER? How are they going to handle the music video demand? Just things like that...
