    Rumors keep flying that it is closing, and being replaced by a Monster's Inc. ride eventually...
    I'm pretty sure it opened the end of last month. It got the automated message spiel like Living With The Land did.

    Not necessarily true. I think Disney is making a good move in closing the attraction down during peak months. The crowds are going to be high anyway, as this is when most people are out from school or work and on vacation. They're heading to Disney anyway. If you close down too many E-ticket attractions during the slower months, that's just one more reason for people not to visit the parks and attendance will be even lower than usual.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    I think their main focus for closing rides is having them opened by Nov/Dec, for Christmas. Because that's when all of the hardcore/people who have saved and nostalgia people come, and genuinely care about Disney to spend their holiday there. It's a meaningful time, rather than spring break / summer where it's full of kids who are stopping by Disney while being in Florida and those tour school groups.
