News & Rumors 10/5/06 - 10/11/09

  • If you are going to the Studios at all the rest of this month, be sure to check out the schedule, as some hours have been extended on some days.
  • Splash Mountain will be down for refurbishment in January and February. Refurbishment dates are Jan. 3 - Feb. 28th.
  • Resort valet parking prices have increased, from $10 to $12.
  • The Sum of All Thrills in Innoventions at Epcot is in previews and is expected to open Oct. 14th.
  • To improve guest flow and satisfaction at some of the more popular Counter Service Restaurants (like Pecos Bills) in the parks, Disney is trying a new system where upon entering the restaurant, the entire party is given a menu to look at while waiting in line and they must stay together. Once your order is taken and your food is delivered, you will then proceed to another Cast Member who will direct you to your table. You will no longer be able to send on person to find a table while the other orders the food. Note: This appears to only happen on extremely busy days. Restaurants being tested in this manner are Pecos Bill's, Columbia Harbor House, Pinocchio's Village Haus, and Cosmic Ray's.
  • The paint scheme is changing to white, blue, and neon green around Space Mountain.
