You're never gonna be alone from this moment on. If you ever feel like letting go, I won't let you fall. When all hope is gone, I know that you can carry on. We're gonna take the world on. I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone.

Thanks for the update. I'm going to move this over to the thread on ride closures.

We will be there on 1/20. I have not seen anything posted on the Web Site yet as far as closures. Disaster will be a disappointment, and our kids would have enjoyed the Woody Coaster. The others should not effect us to much. I guess its the price you have to pay for low crowds.

I think the reason nothing is put on the website is attractions closings and refurbs are hit or miss on the schedule and process so nothing is written in stone.

My guess on DD is this...Universal will wait until the last possible minute to refurb anything on DD since it's so popular. That's not to say I'm completely off base but that's my feeling. I don't know exactly what is intended other than a paint job and possible new trains. I hope the castle isn't changed much since it's so cool to walk through. I can't imagine it would take a long time to paint the tracks and switch the trains but I have no idea.

DD will continue to operate as long as possible. Their line is all sorts of wonky: the entrance and exit are still through the JP gate, you only enter the "castle" when you go to choose your dragon--the rest of the queue is closed, etc.

Disaster is closed for refurb, as is Popeye & Bluto's. Ripsaw will be closing for refurb in Feb.

I'm going Feb 13-23.

I send an email to Universal asking which attraction were going to be closed in February 13 to 23 and they sent me this email:

Dear Ms B,

Thank you for contacting Universal Orlando® Guest Services.


At this time, The Flying Unicorn® and The Enchanted Oak Tavern® have permanently closed as construction continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™.

As of this writing, no other attractions are scheduled to be closed during the timeframe of your visit; however, please be advised that our operating hours are subject to change at any time without notice.


So i guess Ripsaw, popeye and disaster will be out from refurb on that days.

Does anyone know how long Disaster will be closed for rehab? It appears that Universal's web site is no longer listing closure dates or at least has not been updated to list current closures. Is there any other place this information would be listed?

I'm going the week before the previous poster and sent them a similar email. They sent me the same response. So if Ripsaw is going down for rehab, it's only going to be for the first few days of February.

Also, do any of you guys know whether Hulk is undergoing rehab right now? It hasn't been listed on the wait times website in at least three days.
