They shut down the DW one for about that long last year. We all survived...
You'll be ok, think happy thoughts.

The one at DL needs improvements, the line area is so small.

At least it not two year like they did with space mountain. That was a long sad two years but with an awesome happy ending. So while it will be long, it's for the overall good

You might get more commiseration over on the DL forum.

This is the WDW thread, not DL When it was down last year at WDW for six months it was absolute torture waiting for it to get back up.

Then after being down for 6 months, it was still down with problems as much as it was up during our December trip.

Whew!! I thought you meant DW. Yeah, the last time we were at DW it was closed and we were bummed... so when I saw this I though my daughter would be so disappointed if it was closed this time...

I feel your disappointment

Was this at DW or DL?

If it was at DW, what did they all do that took them so long?

It was at DL. It was completely rebuilt. They changed to one track, changed the cars to side by side seating, added a sound system. It's awesome.

Thanks for the reply. That does sound awesome. I looked at the DL website and the Space Mountain info and it does look really cool.

I second that. It's a far better ride than the WDW version. My neck is voting for us to head west this year.
