SWGE yes, not the hotel.
Oh i guess I misunderstood. I don't care about the hotel, just GE. With that said, I have NO idea what's going to be in GE when it first opens.
Any recent updates on the status of the renovations at All-Star Movies (like which sections have been done?). Just curious .. as my 60-days is coming up in a month and want to know what to potentially request during the 60-day early check-in.
There's a thread on the resorts board that tracks progress.
Seems like summer 2021 would be a good time to visit WDW.... hope I have the will power to wait for 3 years....
Any updates on the Space Mountain exit ramp refurbishment? I saw info when it started in early/mid June and nothing since then.
It's still gutted inside, so it'll be a while. Haven't heard any time estimates, but it's not an enourmous project so I'd guess a couple months.
Head down Summer of 19, & 20....
Isn't this supposed to be Dec. 2018?
Yes thank you for noticing.
I've seen so little on this. What are they doing? I thought it was just a temporary exit to accommodate Tron construction. Are they actually gutting the existing exit ramp?
They are redoing the exit ramps.
I could see them all torn up from the PeopleMover the other day.
From what I was told by a cast member at the ride (so not necessarily completely accurate) they are removing the conveyor belt and widening the path to better accommodate for wheelchairs. It is gutted. Haven't heard anything about it's progress but last time I was there I took some pictures through the door. This was from July 29th.
That would be great if true. So many times we've gotten stuck behind people who stand on the walkway and it backs up pretty badly. It's fine if someone wants to stand, letting it carry them by, but they often don't move to the side. I even had someone refuse to move out of the way. Maybe they thought it was a line to something else but it was kinda frustrating because we needed to get to the bathroom (little kid problems) and she just wouldn't budge. So unnecessarily frustrating.
I wonder how much longer the Space Mountain exit will be closed. Anyone have an idea? I cannot find any info on the web.
Not much info available but they gutted the exit. So it'll be a while, probably a few months. I posted a picture of the construction a couple posts up.
Yeah I seen your original post with the pic from July 29th. Didn’t know how it was moving along and a rough timeline. We arrive in 2 weeks and finally talked my wife into riding it. Would be nice for her to see all the cool stuff in the exit but there’s always next year!
Any word on when the new Japan Restaurant will open?
I’d expect sometime in 2019. Construction just began.
