Can anyone let me know what/if anything is due to be closed for this period?

Thanks in advance!

Nothing will be announced this far out except for attractions that are being refurbished/built now. Jimmy Neutron will be closing in August but other than that, it's way too early to know anything.

Jimmy Neutron will be closing permanently in August and I've heard it's running sporadically so if it's open...ride it while you can.

Going 11/14 thru 11/18

I have clicked everywhere on the Universal Orlando official site to try & locate the refurbishments & closings & it is not under the park calendar or hours. It is not on the rides individually when you click on them (which is what the Universal site states to do), so how can I locate any future closings for refurbishments for 11/14 thru 11/18/2011?

My son & I LOVE the Mummy ride & want to ensure it is not closed during this week. When was it refurbished or worked on last, does anyone know?

Does anyone know where I can locate the November 2011 closings/refurbishments?
Thank you so much !!! Love my Dis Buddies !!!

The last time we went to Universal Orlando was 6 years ago & we are going back & staying at the Hard Rock Hotel, love the perk of the front of the line access for onsite guests!!!

Thanks. Telling my daughters not to expect to ride it then. I'm sure they will find something else to obsess over.

I don't think Spiderman is closing anytime soon. My understanding is the projection updates are scheduled to be done on a not-to-interfere basis with the ride, at least for now. If it was closing by the end of the month and gshumaker's trip, I'm pretty sure we'd see more info about it by now.

I think Neutron just closed this weekend for the retheme into Despicable Me. I know nothing about a Mummy refurb.

Neutron closes on August 18th. I believe its last day of operation will be the 17th.

There were lots of people riding it one more time tonight. Some friends who are here this week wanted to do that more than anything else.

Are they rehabbing Cinesphere? I know its normally done this time of year,but this is the first time Ive seen the floats completely cleared off, and it looks like 1 or more may be out of the lagoon.

There's no telling what they're doing for that show. It's not staged as much as it used to be but I would like see it during HHN again.
