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

Please please please please. Get rid of those abominations.
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.


That would be great! While they’re at it is it too late for them to drop the Tron theme on that coaster and make it SpaceX instead. Would be perfect to have those side by side!
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.

It should be noted that they found this from a Disney fan site, so this is far from a definite and much closer to a grain of salt rumor imo.
Someone should just ask Elon Musk. Who knows even if it isn’t true he just might do it.

PHOTOS: Haunted Mansion Queue Awning Being Replaced During the Hottest, Rainiest Time of the Year at the Magic Kingdom - WDW News Today

Who makes these decisions? I mean, my God, why in the heck would you decide to replace awnings over a busy queue when its over 90 degrees every day and could rain at any given point. It's decisions like these that make me think I could do a better job in an upper level management position at one of Disney's parks or resorts...
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.
