Pooh Ride Rehab???

Ok, I don't want to add more panic to my May-trippers but I've heard a rumor that the Pooh ride may be closing for most of the month of May for rehab :( What else can happen, I ask you?? I'm hoping that this is just a rumor or that it's not closed when we're there but boy-o-boy, just as I 'get over' the disappointment of the fireworks/Spectromagic debacle, I read this.

Val, I've heard the same rumor, but have not had it confirmed yet. Like you, I'm hoping that it is just a rumor. My first reaction was extreme disappointment, but we've got SO much going on that my girls probably won't even notice!!

Let's keep our fingers crossed, but remember - WE ARE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!! And we are leaving in 2-3 weeks!!

I also heard a different timing on that rumour that Pooh would be closed from late May into June. I'm hoping that if they are rehabbing it, that the timing is later in May. That's one ride that my littlest one is very excited about.

Yes, Susan, mine too - they're both big Pooh fans! I guess we'll just roll with the punches but what great punches they're going to be as Lucinda is reminding us! I can't wait to get there!!

noooooooooooooo!

actually val, i'm glad you mentioned this now, because i probably would have cried if i wasn't prepared for it, got there and found out then. i have to say, i wasn't thinking about any ride being closed... now i'll just keep in mind that any ride can be closed; that will make it easier to *handle* if it happens. (like i'll need therapy in disney if one of 'my' rides is closed;) LOL! they should have trained CM's at the closed rides to help out distraught adults!

i guess i have to handle like the rest of you guys and be a mature adult about it (but i don't waaaannnt to!)

i can't wait to start packing!!! Liz :)

Hey, I'm just trying to be all adult-like too; I'm afraid that it's gonna be me having the hissy fit if a ride is closed, not my kids! LOL

Today I finally got out summer stuff for DD2 from the attic! I'm itching to pack too!

Apparently, the powers that be in WDW have decided not to schedule either of these things in the Magic Kingdom at all for the month of May. Quite the disappointment for those of us scheduled to go next month!

May 2,3 and 9 are grad nights so that's why no parade/fireworks on those nights. Grad night also opens at 8 on those nights so the posted MK closing time will be around 7 pm.

There are 2 E ride nights in May (not exactly fireworks and parade but extra park time) May 27 & 30

Cinderella's Suprise Celebration is also cancelled on May 2, 3, and 9 for Grad night.

Other May Closings

Epcot Chinese Theatre

MGM Great Movie Ride

see my post above for firework in May info.

Oh, gosh, I held my breath when I read the part about Cinderella's Surprise Celebration - at least we're not planning to be in MK on the 3rd or the 9th. Oh, my nerves....ok, just reminded myself that we're going to be having so much fun just being there it won't matter what we see!!

The All Ears newsletter said the Pooh ride would be closed starting in April (25th I think?) until June 27th.
