The Midway ride and the closing of the VOTLM seemed to be somewhat related, according to sources. Apparently, the Midway ride may need the space, and thus VOTLM's area may be needed. It was Jim Hill, who always seems to be on the lookout for some way to interpret Disney as hating its guests, concluded that this had something to do with the Broadway musical opening. Obviously, the precedent doesn't hold.
