    Super bummed about this since we were planning on riding during our first day at the parks! Hopefully they won't push it back any further. At least we will still get a chance to ride it during our last couple days!
    Fingers crossed about anymore push-backs, Meliss!
    It will be fun to ride it bran'-spankin' new!

    When we were at The World in July of '07, both The Haunted Mansion AND Spacship Earth were down for reno. That really bit! We new before we went but we couldn't schedule the trip before or after.

    BTW... Is it just a standard maintenance thing or are they adding (hoping) some cool stuff, maybe, to it?

    I don't believe they are adding anything to TTA. Just basic refurb, and the fact that SM is also down (I believe it's too dangerous to run TTA through SM during the work).

    Not that it's too dangerous, it's just bad show. Although, I have been on TTA when they were refurbing SM, they just put a tarp or curtain over the windows that seperate you from the dome, but you can know that they're working on the track as the lights are on in the dome, and you see activity going on in between the slight openings of the curtains.

    But they are also doing work over/including the track that TTA goes through. So I'm sure it has to be dangerous at times (hence part of the reasons why it's closed, I'm pretty sure).

    Ah, didn't know that they had to be working over the TTA track. That does sound like a really good reason to keep it closed then

    Re: TTA re-opening date pushed back a week!

    I really hope that it's just a refurb operation and that they don't change TTA in any way. It is one of my favorite destinations in the MK. What a great place to relax for a while after walking around all day, or to give your stomach a rest while waiting for the rest of your party who may be riding SM for the 27th time in a row. I also love the fact that you can stay on the ride for multiple trips.

    we love the tta also.
    im glad wdw is going through all these refurbs!
    i know its tough for some, not having certain attractions open and all.
    But, in the end, it will be worth it.
    I think space mountain will end up being a great refurb!

    I'll be glad when TTA is back. I'm not sure why I like it so much?? Maybe because you get to see lots of Tomorrowland, there is never a line, and it is a good way to cool off. Whatever the reasons, I'll be glad when it is back!

    It has actually been pushed back to September 12th.
    Tomorrowland Transit Authority news - Tomorrowland Transit Authority reopening date pushed back to September 12 2009


    We arrive on the 13th so I really hope that this date stands.

    Re: TTA re-opening date pushed back a week!

    We have a tradition of getting on the TTA when we first get to the MK. I guess it just really sets the MK mood. The lighting effects are cool though.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
