BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mt. will be closing for a major rehab this fall, and remain closed through most of 2013. The 33-year-old coaster will receive a similar treatment as the one Space Mt. got in ’03-’05, (without the extensive foundation work that Space Mt. needed). New track will be installed, the load/unload area will be widened for 21st century riders, and a new ride control system tops it all off. The queue will be prepped for NextGen additions, and unlike the recent WDW Thunder rehab Tony Baxter has returned to his first E Ticket to plus up the show and the aesthetics. Take your last ride on Big Thunder 1.0 in September.

Widened for the 21st century rider = another sign that we have gotten fat - aidensmama  340.3 #750 7:11PM
I'm not small, but I fit fine on BTMRR. Those new Matterhorn cars on the other hand are made for short people. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 7:36PM
Scooter mike I consider myself short and I don't fit in the matterhorn cars very well, I'm not sure those cars were made for any sort of realistic people! - Pixarprincess  544.5 #410 8:01PM
Matterhorn bobsleds were made for IASW sized people! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #277 12:43AM

2013 - Big Thunder Rehab - Rumor - (5/10/12) According to one Screamscape source, salaried members of management at Disneyland were informed of the rumored plan to take Big Thunder Mountain down for an extensive rehab from January 2013 and reopen it in Summer 2013. Or at least that was the plan… have to wait and see if the timetable of work that needs to be done will agree or not. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #320 8:01PM
Please note the word "rumor". Don't believe everything that is said on Disney fan blogs, chat sites etc. unless Disney says it directly on their official blog. Rumors do get spread around quick. And it discourages people that are making their trip plans. Again IF this happens it won happen til jan 2013. So people would still have time to ride it this year. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #320 8:06PM
^this👍 - BaseballMickey  8033.3 #12 8:14PM
Yes, thank you for pointing this out, IAC. I'd hate to see someone cancel plans when these refurbs aren't 100% set in stone. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  649.3 #332 8:21PM
alsoo if they were planning on closing it in september i would think they would give more than a months notice. and i have not seen anything from the official website or official blog yet. but we will see what happens. all i can say is to keep an eye on the official blog for this info and not peoples blogs annd chat sites. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #320 12:06PM
Well this is total poo! What am I going to do with my life?! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #256 7:27PM

Meh - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #248 7:46PM
I wonder if the refurb includes any chance of the train going backwards for Halloween time. - SorcererD91  4302.5 #37 7:58PM
No, but there will be loops and mermaids - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 7:59PM
Loops and mermaids LOL.. sweet! (On a serious note though, sirens on Pirates peaking out of the water right when the ride starts would be awesome.. that's another thread..) - DaisyDork  198.7 #2086 8:04PM
Oh boy, first Indiana Jones and now Big Thunder Mountain?!! - Goofy24  174.0 #2416 8:03PM
They are measuring the vechicle to be widen?sound familiar from materhorn? - pikarich  6343.9 #22 8:06PM
I dont think so-- this post says the load/unload area will be widened. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  649.3 #332 8:09PM
I took it mean only the loading area is going to be widened not the vehicles themselves. - aidensmama  340.3 #750 8:11PM
Churro stand halfway thru the ride?! - A_kid_again  8.5 #12983 8:16PM
My favorite ride, I'm soooooo gonna miss not riding it - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 9:03PM
😢... 😪 okay. I'll have to get over it. - gigibunny2  242.8 #1518 9:12PM
This means that I have to ride it 5 times every visit until it's closed! Oh and must video record it before its changed and have tons of laughs while a it!! - gigibunny2  242.8 #1518 9:14PM
They better not do anything with the goat! - CaliCanuck  534.4 #424 9:14PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Unforecast for week of August 29, 2016. OK , I'll add some more for this week while admin is busy.   starting with Monday August  29th we are getting ready to say goodbye to Paint The Night . This will be the last week for it to be run  two times a night until it goes on hiatus for a while until the holidays. So expect crowds, especially at night, to be a little bigger. Last week the major crowds came in on Friday about 7 PM and the park really filled up. Expect that again this weekend especially because it's Labor Day weekend.  it's also  race weekend which means races on Friday , Saturday , and Sunday so there will be road closures during the early morning until about noon along Disney way. And downtown Disney parking will be very crowded since half the parking lot is taken up by event booths. Include with that it being Labor Day and Monday being the last night to see Paint The Night for a while,  the the park will probably be very crowded. So bring your patience and bring some extra water. And have fun!  - secretagentangel Aug 29, 2016 11:51PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7592 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #523 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  183.5 #2291 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD   ice cream  store till midnight.  - secretagentangel  8072.4 #11 1:41PM

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 7:03PM
