I believe it is getting a refurbishment and will be closed from 4/12 through 9/12.
well actually,I am ready to see a big change for all of WDW! I lost my good paying job in '08 and our last trip to WDW was in '07 which completed a 10 year run to WDW!It was great,can't wait to start another 10 yr run.So to be honest,when you go as much as we did,it's still great to be at WDW but after a while things do become blasae(not sure on spelling),and I remember one year,one day we did all of MK before it even got dark!So to see a lot of changes come to WDW, I say bring it all on!I know T Rex is now at DD,and I know of the Fantasyland expansion.What else have I not heard about? Change! Change! Change! I love the classics too,just like anyone else,but it's time for change.

Well hopefully you'll score another good paying job and you'll get back to see the big changes. When we went in July '11 we hit Snow White right away since it will be gone. I was really disappointed in seeing so many construction walls at the MK.
Technology has advanced way too far for these rides of the 60's and 70's to still be fun to most people.Older folks like me,over 50,have enjoyed them when younger but if we still rode them now,it's only a nostalgic thing.Haunted mansion is still classic and worth keeping along with Pirats ride.Small world,I can take it or leave it.But I say keep it too.

They're getting rid of Snow White's Scary adventures? That's the first I've heard of this.
When they halted Fantasyland expansion from the original design of princess and fairyland, re-announced altered plans, brought in a coaster. Official word was they didn't want the Dwarf coaster to have to compete with SNSA. I hope they don't do it. The more attractions to feed guests into the better.
Plus the Meet'n Greet now isn't going all that well, they have fastpasses for it and from what has been said, rarely if ever needed. Hopefully the powers to be have duly noted that before they dump big bugs into demo'ing an attraction and rebuilding a Princess-land.
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.
I didn't realise I brought my soap box with me today.

I don't have a problem with dark rides as a type of ride, but technology has advanced enough to seriously consider redoing them. SWSA isn't a very good ride, there are a couple of nice effects but... I just don't see the same audience out there that exists for Peter Pan's Flight or existed for Mr. Toads.
What I would love to see them do is figure out a way to build a dark ride with modular sets that were easy to swap out, and use screens (3-D, maybe?) to cover wow factor show scenes. That way you could use the same building and track but swap out between dark rides for Mr. Toads, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Alice, 101 Dalmations, Pixar movies, whatever - basically a means to have a rotating lineup of attractions that could be changed out in a week or two. Most of the work would be the creation of the show scenes via programming so all that would be done ahead of time.
