Magic Kingdom's Space Mountain Refurb

Walt Disney World in Florida has announced that the Magic Kingdom's classic Space Mountain attraction will close for refurbishment for most of 2009.

The ride will close April 19th, which will keep it open for the ever crowded Easter/Spring break period.

The large rehab is said to include removing and replacing all track for the ride (although the layout will remain the same), updating the queue, and replacing the roof of the attraction.

The ride should be opened again by the end of 2009.

By replacing the track (not the layout) it will make the ride much smoother.
