    Gotta get the ride count down to 3. Of those three all have height requirements too.

    Well, Toy Story Midway Mania is the only ride left at HS that I like, so if they close that before opening the new ones, that will bring my HS ride count temporarily down to zero. :sad1:

    Granted this was WDWNT so I would take it with a grain of salt but this rumor actually made sense. They’re closing it in phases. The third track will close in the next couple of days or weeks in order to reroute the queue and exit, then they’re closing the original to do the same. I’m not sure if when they close the original if the third track will reopen. WDWNT mentioned a full shutdown as well but the two phased closure seems to cover all the basses, except of course the original entrance but I don’t think you need to close the ride for a shut door

    @AMusicLifeForMe was at DHS today and work did begin. He mentioned that most of the indoor queue is now blocked off and that most of the queue is now outside the building.

    I saw this repeated a few times yesterday and got nervous. I hope the full closure aspect is incorrect or, if correct, that it won't be closed the first week in March.

    If they do actually close TSMM, they should allow people to hop out of the park for free. Or only charge half price/half day.

    I have fastpasses on Sunday 1/28 so I hope it is still going to be open!

    My guess is that they'll shut down the new addition, then close the rest of the ride. They can work on some maintenance issues and spruce it up during the period in which they rerun the queue line. I would expect the attraction to re-open as part of toy story land, not before.

    Same here. HS is our least favorite park. It seems a waste to even go there.

    We would skip DHS on our next trip, but my daughter loves it so much that we'll be going. For me its one of those "i'm paying how much for this?!?!" kind of experiences.....

    Wouldn't they have to close it for at least a few days just to finish off the conversion of the entry from Pixar Place to Toy Story Land?

    That would be great but I don’t see it happening.

    We’re going in May so I hope it does open back up before Toy Story land but I can see why it wouldn’t if the entrance is in TSL. We’d be stuck going to DHS anyway since at least one of my kids is going to insist on doing JTA and another really wants to ride RNR. We don’t do hoppers so I guess this will be my chance to finally see the Muppets.

    Have you heard when they may close the whole thing? From the article it looks like February March, but I can't really interpret it clearly.

    I don’t have specifics yet. Work has already begun as parts of the queue are covered up.
