    Exclamation SSE Refurb Schedule

    I found this on Mouse Extra:

    News on long-term closure of Spaceship Earth

    April 27, 2007 at 2:31 pm Filed under The View from Dave's Chair


    TouringPlans.com is reporting this morning on the dates Spaceship Earth will be closing for what plans to be a massive refurbishment. According to the website, it will be closed from at least July 9 through October 31, maybe even longer.
    The end date is still fuzzy and unconfirmed. The park’s calendar for November has not been released yet. The ride may be closed for a substantial portion of November as well.
    I would suspect Spaceship Earth will remain closed right up until the Thanksgiving Week, a very busy time at Walt Disney World. Considering it will be closed for the massively busy July, it only makes sense that if they can avoid a closure of a crowd eating attraction for another busy season they would.

    Earlier reports seemed to suggest this popular attraction may go through a scattered schedule of frequent closures, rather than one long closure. But this is a long one for sure, and it includes the crowded July as well as the popular Food and Wine Festival. TouringPlans.com is also reporting much shorter additional closures of only a couple of days in May and June.

    It's a good thing it will still be open when I go on Memorial Day Weekend. I'm aiming for it to be my 20th vacation, so it had better be open by then.

    WDW Magic has a post about the closures. The main closure will be after 4th of July until November sometime. However, I can't seem to find anything offiical from Disney.

    It should be going down on or about July 7th and will likely be down until late November. Although there will be shorter downtimes until early next year, much like the four day downtime it just experienced.
