    People Mover going down for a rehab

    The TTA is currently scheduled to be going down on February 10th and likely will not return from rehab until March 28, 2014.

    The TTA has been plagued with many reported issues this year, cars clusters bumping into other car clusters. Units stalling and guests needing to be evacuated. The show scene going through SM is still tarped and dark. This summer it was reported that one of the light fixtures brought fire fighters to Tommowland. So like much of Tommowland, the Peoplemover needs some TLC.

    And if Disney would fix the once humorous spiel they butchered earlier, that would be a bonus.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    A month and a half is a welcome rehab time, considering how long some of the others take!

    Yep, like Splash Mountain going down for almost 3 months again, 2nd year in a row. That is a honk'n percentage.

    Knowing Imagineering trend, I would expect to see some video screen effects. They are everywhere now.

    Seriously though, on my trip last week I noticed weird placements of the vehicles. Far different from when I operated it.

    For a very long time these cars are operating at their own will at times. The clumps resemble bumper cars at times, they are also stranding guests up their and they need to be evacuated.

    I'm just glad they are being rehab'd not going bye bye like Disneyland. I could do without any tech being added to the ride, I like to ride it a time or two just to put my feet up, regather my thoughts and chill for a bit. Something about being above the crowds makes it easy to relax and get away from it all for a little bit.

    Glad they are doing a rehab. This ride is one of our "traditions" that we like to hit every trip.

    I think the People Mover may have been down more times this week than Space Mountain.
