I was able to make Spaceship Earth FP+ for the second week in January so hopefully Disney doesn't pull a fast one on me and close this before then.
I think I've mentioned this in this thread before, but Disney's closure of the Great Movie Ride in 2017 was done well inside the 60-day FastPass+ window (announced July 15; closed permanently August 13, less than a month later). It was handled fairly well (FastPasses for GMR ended up becoming unrestricted multiple experience FastPasses, which was a really nice gesture given how new Pandora was and how hard-to-get FoP was at the time), but it does show that there's no guarantee that something that's bookable for FP+ will necessarily still be open when it comes time for your trip.I was able to make Spaceship Earth FP+ for the second week in January so hopefully Disney doesn't pull a fast one on me and close this before then.
Every day I check to see if it's got a closing date. That's how important it is for me to get to ride it one last time before it's refurb.We were in EPCOT in Sept and a lot of CM were saying that its closing for refurb early 2020..... We will be there next week and plan on riding it one last time before the refurb !!!!
