Space Mountain and Soarin' Over California temporary closure info: Both attractions remain closed until further notice as Disney reviews the safety citation they received http://bit.ly/11jndNu in response to a maintenance worker accident in November. Apparently, Disney has delayed the scheduled #refurb for the Matterhorn. If you have any news, please post here.

There is so much to do at Disneyland folks. These couple of closures aren't going to affect your visits oh so terribly. Would you rather be riding one of the Main Street vehicles and a wheel pop off like at Knotts. Or be stuck on a ride for three hours way up in the air, again at Knotts. These safety precautions are set up for a reason. - Waites4DodgerEars  973.1 #164 11:17AM
Unfortunately, issues like this do happen. Many arriving guests will be upset due to 2 very popular rides being closed, but complaining wont make this situation move along any faster. I would rather support the Disney company in their efforts to make sure all safety issues are fixed rather than being afraid to ride the attraction due to the lack of safety. Just sit tight, guys. Disney is working on the problem to the best of their abilities. Like W4DE stated, there are many more fun attractions and shows you can experience at the parks! :) - PrincessMacyCM  535.5 #338 11:24AM
Don't forget all the great shows like the fantasy faire, Aladdin, the parades, innovations new iron man installation. There is not enou time in one day to see all it - Plumiegirl  8344.2 #3 12:36PM
Amen! - AliceLovesEeyore  49.7 #4427 2:05PM
If I wanted to watch a show I will go to the movies. - Lelundrial  498.1 #376 2:41PM
There is no fantasmic or world of color at the movies - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 2:45PM
I didn't care for either of those. Left halfway through that WOC. - Lelundrial  498.1 #376 3:19PM
I truly feel sad for those who save and plan and come so far. My husband and I live close and when we went on Sunday for a few hours he made a wonderful observation. He said, "Remember when we first got our passes and we would rush around trying to do everything and literally count how many attractions we went on? Now we come here and are amazed by the detail, character interaction, food and special moments you miss if you just focus on the attractions. I like it so much better now." While I know that may not help those that need that SM fix as I know we often do, sometimes things happen for a reason and another magical memory could be made in it's place. - MrsSchnooks  2917.8 #37 9:17PM
As someone who loves Disneyland and only gets to go every 4plus years I really feel for the people that are arriving for vacation at this time expecting these rides. Some people only get the privilege of visiting once in their lifetime and save for a very log time to make it happen. These rides (plus BTMRR) are three of my favorite rides and are something to look forward to. I understand that there are other rides and things to experience but I would be very disappointed if I had planned my once in a lifetime vacation and these attractions were closed unexpectedly. It may not seem like such a big deal for those of you that get to experience the Disney magic on a regular basis but for those of us who are not that privileged it sure is. Of course, safety is first but please have compassion on those who are really bummed-because it is a big deal. - missyandpaul  269.1 #1066 2:30PM
I totally feel your pain. I'm fortunate to be able to go all the time, and since Space Mountain is my favorite ride, I really feel horrible even when it's down for a few hours. Anyways, just wanted you to know, I understand!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3681 3:41PM
Well said. Safety is a priority. However, if the accident occured in November, why wasn't the problem addressed and fixed at that point. Was it somehow safe from November until now? Seems suspicous. In addition, the cost of a ticket is an enormous amount of money for many families. To not have the opportunity to experience the park to its fullest is disappointing. - tdgo  3.0 #43029 9:33PM
Hey guys, Not sure if it means anything or not but TouringPlans lists Space Mountain and Soarin' as reopening tomorrow. Again, not sure how accurate that is but that's what they have listed on their site. - TheRobinsonOhana  15.6 #7398 12:11PM
Are you serious?? That would be nice! - spacemountain0949_CM  132.9 #2864 12:18PM
That would be great but i wouldn't believe it until disney says so. - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 12:24PM
Please if your there, keep us updated. I am postponing our trip unless the rides open. - tdgo  3.0 #43029 12:35PM
I'm thinking about doing that but i am to excited to go. We are suppose to leave on friday. - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 12:41PM
I am hoping that it is correct because my wife and I are planning to fly in next week and love both of those rides... - TheRobinsonOhana  15.6 #7398 1:28PM
I'll keep checking it to see if it changes though! - TheRobinsonOhana  15.6 #7398 1:28PM
That's a bummer about the closures but I'd rather miss out on a few attractions due to closures then to have myself or cast members injured. I would give anything to be at Disney even if all of my favorites were closed. we made the decision to build a house and unfortunately Disneyland is not in our future for a long time! - luvmygreenarmyman  254.6 #1205 8:21PM
On a semi-related tangent, the elephant has been cut from from Aladdin because a worker fell off the ladder while prestting it. OSHA has declared we can't use it till the matter has been investigated. :-/ - AWholeNewWorld  321.0 #714 9:45PM
Oh no, loved that grand entrance - MarshaMouse  4074.4 #24 9:52PM
Worker ok? - MarshaMouse  4074.4 #24 9:52PM
😳 So will prince Ali just walk in? O.o - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #135 9:57PM
I've seen a couple shows without the elephant several months ago.. it's just not the same :/ first no flying carpet and now no elephant?!?! - Jenniferr  506.7 #365 10:09PM
I don't know about the worker. But the ladder isn't that tall, I can't imagine it wasn't more thatn bumps and bruises. Until further notice Ali will be doing the "walk of SHAME" - AWholeNewWorld  321.0 #714 10:09PM
He walked in on Sunday :/ - GarnerPhotography  324.7 #696 10:09PM
That's sad! I loved the "animals"! - DisneyDreamer93  16.7 #7165 10:26PM
No one wants to fall off a ladder at work, so OSHA is protecting us all. - debbiev  904.2 #176 10:27PM
Grand entrance on Segway? - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #189 12:15AM
Saturday there was no Jafar Genie at the end either😁 - toph  2416.6 #46 7:39AM
ah bummer! loved the elephant. hope he's okay. - OhanaPhoto  3351.3 #30 8:51AM
Might be a quick fix-sometimes people just FALL off ladders (operator error)....nothing you can do about that. Hopefully everyone is okay and fixed/back in business soon! - TinkerSchelle  1255.0 #110 2:16PM
When there is no red genie at the end it's a 50/50 chance that the actor didn't hurry his butt up and make it on time. The other half the lines got twisted coming down and there wasn't time to fix it. It's super awkward. Everyone just staring at an invisible genie. - AWholeNewWorld  321.0 #714 9:41PM
NOOOOO! We have been planning our once in a lifetime trip. Tickets, hotel, bought. Arriving Friday. :(. Sooo sad that 2 more of our "must do" rides are now closed! 4 teenagers and 2 adults devastated... Hope they get them fixed and inspected by Sunday at the latest...but not counting on it. - IdahoMickey  3.1 #34976 10:53PM
Now the Matterhorn is down for testing too? Great Disney vacation this is gonna be! - hairdog67  258.6 #1162 7:05AM
No. Its refurbishment has been postponed as far as I'm aware. Just space and soarin are affected by the closures. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2278.1 #52 7:14AM
They're changing out the square wheels - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4694.9 #20 7:41AM
^^^That would be nice. - Lelundrial  498.1 #376 7:55AM
@hmacif that would be great.πŸ˜ƒ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  942.5 #167 9:10AM
Its hard for us folks who plan vacations so far in advance because we don't live within driving distance :( I know things come up such as this, but its devastating when big rides, now three of them are down. My bachelorette part starts monday... - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1142.4 #128 10:35AM
@HiddenMickeyFanatic I do understand. I used to live quite far from the park. Unfortunately Disney doesn't have much choice here. - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 10:56AM
Very true MyPark- our trip was planned many months ago (coming from out of state, its a "gamble" that you just accept) but our 3 boys look at it this way; although some BIG rides are down, Disney is providing us with rides we've never been on before! (Carsland) so its the "door closing, window opening" mentality for us :) - DisneyDawn  419.2 #465 11:18AM
Way to think positive DisneyDawn - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 11:21AM
Trying....:) - DisneyDawn  419.2 #465 11:25AM
According to DIsneyland's site space mountain will be closed through May :( - cwatson79  4.2 #20358 8:59AM
:(, dang our next day trip is at the beginning of May. - Lelundrial  498.1 #376 9:00AM
I know the pain, we will be in the park April 30th -May 4th and will be traveling with a first time visitor hopefully he gets to experience these wonderful attractions. - cwatson79  4.2 #20358 9:09AM
I have a friend that's from Germany and has never been to Disneyland. She wants to try Space Mountain so bad since I talk about it so much. We were going to go in May. =( - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3681 10:27AM
Nooooo!!!! :( - spacemountain0949_CM  132.9 #2864 12:19PM
Announcing MW Reunion Meetup @ Space Mountain on...oh--wait 😜 - TinkerSchelle  1255.0 #110 2:19PM
Boo. Looks like we'll be there for a day this weekend and Soarin is my mom's favorite ride! But no worries. It's just a couple of rides there's a ton more to do. Thanks for the update though! - Poisen_Ivy  271.1 #1044 3:15PM
Thank you for having a positive outlook. I really can't read posts that people act like it's the end of the world because two rides are down. There are so many other great things to see, and attractions to ride, places to eat, and just the overall fact that you are inside Disneyland is great. - LuvsTigger  986.0 #163 3:52PM
I love going to the park just to sit, relax and have a snack. The cast members, the Disney magic is awesome. It's the little things like the animation academy, or character interactions like musical chairs... - dougdougdoug  5.0 #16510 10:08AM
Just went on the disneyland website and they are listed as open starting on the 25th of april. Yeah!! - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 9:54PM
Yay yay YAAAAY!!!! That's when we'll be there!!!! Miracles do happen! - LittleAprilShowers  559.5 #318 9:55PM
I know. That's the last two days of my vacation. Two days are better then none. So excited!!! - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 9:58PM
YAY!!!!! That's such good news!!!!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3681 11:21PM
Thats the week right before I arrive!! They have been updating that quite often so hopefully this is truly what it will be!!! - cwatson79  4.2 #20358 11:34PM
Disney calendar now shows Space Mountain pending closure only through Wed April 24 - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1407.6 #98 4:31PM
That's Awesome!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3681 4:37PM
Darn, I'm only there on mon/tues!!!!! Hoping for a miracle! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1142.4 #128 7:35PM
Thanks for the update. I hope they get it done before they have to pay a hefty fee, April 22. - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1142.4 #128 5:08PM
They will be paying the fine notwithstanding a fix by the abatement date. That date is when OSHA will shutter the ride. Disney voluntarily closed Space Mountain as per their spokeswoman. Hopefully they fix the ride ASAP so we can get back to riding though! I fly in on Saturday. - echo_star  38.4 #4855 9:31PM
When and how long was the Matterhorn planned to be down? - DisneyTim  47.3 #4505 5:15PM
Three weeks Monday through Thursday. I don't know how long it's been postponed. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2278.1 #52 5:38PM
The Disney Daily Calendar website says Space Mountain will be down at least until May 27th. - DisneyDreamer93  16.7 #7165 5:40PM
I hope disney just did that not to upset people when they show up and its not running and they can get it up before then - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 6:24PM
Yeah, it would be nice if it was just an over estimation. I'd think they'd haul butt to get one of their most popular rides up and going. - DisneyDreamer93  16.7 #7165 6:47PM
Would you rather have them haul butt & fix it fast. Or take their time so everything is sufficient? 😊 - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #135 9:56PM
May 27 is Memorial Day. Super packed week & weekends! - Winnie111286  2315.4 #50 10:15AM
Any news when Soaring will be open? We were planning a trip this weekend but will postpone if the rides are closed. - tdgo  3.0 #43029 6:33PM
The newspaper today said they are both closed indefinitely. - Winnie111286  2315.4 #50 10:21AM
The Matterhorn testing has been postponed for this week, and will definitely remain open. I will try to update everyone soon! - Tinkerbell03  11.0 #9012 7:03PM
Thanks for the update! - Thumper13  427.1 #449 7:21PM
Wow. This is very different than when we were there Saturday. They kept telling everyone that Space Mountain was expected to open that night. Looks like there's a lot more to correct than they originally thought. - Winnie111286  2315.4 #50 7:25PM
Elephant was there last Thursday - splashphotoCM  885.6 #178 10:13PM
Elephant was there on Friday as well. - MennisDiller  640.4 #265 11:42PM
Wow! What a bummer! Those are really big attractions to have closed. Especially at the same time. But safety is way more important than anything - Queenof2princesses  259.6 #1154 5:09AM
Remember another big ride closed at the same time is Big Thunder Railroad for refurbish. - Winnie111286  2315.4 #50 10:24AM
Oh well, we are coming out anyway. We'll figure something else to do. - MikeyMouse  92.7 #3516 2:57PM
I just wanted to send out a big thank you to so many of you who have remained so positive about this! Ride closures will always occur and can be very disappointing, but Disneyland is so much more than the sum of its rides. You might not be able to experience the precise magic you were hoping for, but you will experience magic. And sometimes when it comes in unexpected ways, it makes your experience that much better! - cmogo  74.4 #3809 6:09AM
I could spend all day at Disneyland and not go on one ride. - TwinkleJenn  86.7 #3612 7:08AM
Totally! SometimeS we go onlyto eat lol! - missariel33  1683.3 #81 7:18AM
But for those that only go once every year or two dont want to go just to eat - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 7:52AM
definitely I didn't mean any offense by that I was just agreeingg that there's plenty to do without having to go on rides - missariel33  1683.3 #81 2:38PM
Just checed the website and it says that Space and Soarin' are only pending closure until the 27th of April. Fingers crossed... - DisneyManders  4.0 #21597 1:48PM
That would be awesome!! Thanks so much for the update. I will definitely keep fingers crossed!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3681 2:12PM
*fingers crossed!!* - spacemountain0949_CM  132.9 #2864 3:12PM
Ooh, I hope that's correct! - MJmouse  272.9 #1026 3:48PM
Looks like they changed it. This morning it was saying that it was going to be closed all throughout May. Good news!! - joshhh  109.8 #3267 6:27PM
Dang. My last day there is the 26th. My husband has never been to disneyland and was so excited to go on space mountain. - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 9:51PM
Fingers crossedπŸ™… - cheshirecat33  8.2 #10957 6:16PM
matterhorn was just refurb'd in june...why is it needed again? - april_december  299.6 #827 9:59PM
It was suppose to be down for testing not refurbishment - rachelelizabeth  189.1 #2017 10:01PM
Bummer we leave on the 24th - deepwoodshunter2  12.9 #8238 1:34PM
RickChavez confirmed that Soarin' is open today - Admin 11:21AM
Yep. Soarin' is indeed open. πŸ‘ - 50sKid  203.1 #1855 1:04PM
Good news there, hope they can really get SM open that soon! - Mikesaxclar  553.4 #323 9:51PM
Glad to see SOC is opened again. I read the entire OSHA citation and SOC is not mentioned, only SM. Any idea what the violation on SOC was? I have friends that work for DLRFD, from what they tell me about their jobs the monitoring fire prevention systems is a key part of their jobs so I'm a little surprised about the fire extinguisher violations. - Firelt  228.6 #1522 7:41AM
I don't think California Screamin' was a part of this, it is open today - Admin 10:03AM
So is there anything new with space mountain? - spacemountain0949_CM  132.9 #2864 2:57AM

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

Update for week of Monday, January 19, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-11pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-11pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-12am (Sunday). 

DCA: 8am-10pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-9pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-10pm (Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: All of Critter Country (re-opening April 2015), Haunted Mansion (opens Friday 1/23), Matterhorn (May 2015), Sleeping Beauty Castle (March 2015), Snow White Grotto (May 2015), Pacific Wharf Cafe (re-opens 2/6), Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (re-opens in March), Soarin over California (re-opens May 2015), Taste Pilots' Grill (re-opens in 3/13). 

This week's "Wednesday with Walt" AP presentation is a look into "The Story of the Silly Symphony". Make sure to pick up a wristband with a valid AP at the Main Street Opera House starting at 12noon on Wednesday to attend one of the presentations that evening. 

unForecast Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week (CIs in the 50s-low 70s). For the weekend, expect the parks to be moderately busy with CIs in the low 70s-80s, as this is "non-peak" season.

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Jan 20, 2015 11:11AM



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  352.8 #599 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6795 11:53PM
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  114.3 #3190 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  216.8 #1668 5:04PM

Me too @Missmolly! - ShariRenee  5017.4 #17 5:50PM
I hope they're changing the matterhorn bobsled seats.  Went once after the last refurbishment and NEVER again.  I literally bruised my tailbone. Everyone had back pain for the rest of the day.   - fancyshmancy1999  5.1 #16186 1:04AM
