    they've started land clearing and I think given it is a port of an existing ride (vs developing something new) it *should* be cheaper to implement so I would think this one is safe

    Does anyone know if the multi-day ticket tiering (especially the per park rumor aspect) apply to both DLR and WDW or just WDW?

    I would expect it to apply to both.

    Thanks that's what I was thinking.

    I *might* have the opportunity to go to DLR next year and now all of a sudden after not worrying about this stuff too too much since I didn't have a trip planned I'm suddenly thinking I might have to consider the complexities of it :crazy2:

    When it comes to Disney, the question will be, will it increase revenue, then the answer is yes Disney will probably implement it wherever they can.

    I'm glad it isn't changing, even though I may be in the minority on this one.

    Now, if we can just make sure they save the trains at Epcot.

    I was just hoping for a bit of a better look to the attraction as some rumors suggested. I like the ride but it looks a bit worn down at times.

    I like the positive spin they are putting for the railroad: "During this time, guests will be able to get an up-close look at the railroad and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities."

    Any idea how long the RR will be down? We are going in early February. This would now be our third trip when it wasn’t operational — really disappointing.

    They did this at Disneyland at the Main Street and New Orleans square stations when the railroad was down for 18 months due to the Star Wars land reroute. It was really nice to be able to take pics and talk with the engineers.

    Yeah the taking pic's thing could be really good for the memory files.

    I personally don't know.

    Anyone else have any insight or estimate on how long it would be down?

    Definitely bumm d about that part - I am glad t is staying but wish it was getting updated to something more “tomorrow” - give it a similar look as Tron and make it electric cars

    No idea but my suspicions are for quite some time - probably 18 months or something while the bulk of Tron work is done

    Sorry to say @Lalalyn but if it was only for a few months and back up by February I think it would have mentioned so in the note

    Yeah, it was actually one of the more memorable part of the trip. I really do think it's a cool and unique experience talking to the conductor and getting to sit in the control room.
