    The listing has been removed, so I'm guessing it was fake.

    what do you guys thing the stay is like.. im guessing they can't lock you in your room, so how much can you wonder around the park? any rides open? can you go in and out of your room during the day leading up to the stay? pretty interested in what it's like!

    There is a 24 hour concierge who attends to your needs and also makes sure you don't wander into places you're not supposed to go.

    There is a crane on site at the canal to start building the footings for the bridge. I've heard there is a whole lot of work about to start happening in front of MK as they remove the pavers and reconfigure everything in time for the 50th.

    I would imaging you can request an escort to tour the park and ensure your safety. Universal does that with smaller afterhours events, this should be complete access sans rides, shows, etc but just to walk around with escort should be a reasonable request . Imo

    I can’t help but think of this:


    I watched that episode recently when they go to Epcot and it’s crazy to think that it’s now owned by Disney.



    I think Tron has to stay as Tron giving the ride vehicle but if Space Mountain goes down for that long overdue overhaul.

    SpaceX Mountain would make a nice combo.

    Someone should just ask Elon Musk. Who knows even if it isn’t true he just might do it.

    If any high-profile person is gonna reply to tweet about something as random as this, it’s Elon.

    Might have been an emergency. We just don’t know.

    An emergency? Come on dude, that's just plain stupidity. Just like when they opened the new bus loop at DHS with no shade of any kind. Or when they opened an entire land (Toy Story Land) with barely any reprieve from the sun. It's just mind boggling to me. You're in Central Florida, there's no excuse for decisions like these.

    It’s been extremely windy on some days recently. It easily could’ve been damaged in a storm and had been deemed a safety concern.

    Routine maintenance found some part of it is too worn/failed early. There could be some rust concerns with the structure that's also being repaired. Etc.
