    We will be at Disney from Aug.4th to 14th. The Operational Update on the WDW website only goes until July. Do you know if the Tomorrowland Transit Authority will be reopened when we visit? My 5 year old DD and I really enjoy this ride. Thanks!

    Unfortunately there is no way on knowing for sure what the schedule will be for any ride closures until the Operational Update calendar is posted for your travel dates. I can tell you that one of the reasons that the Tomorrowland Transit Authority is scheduled to close is because it ventures into a portion of Space Mountain. If you did not know, Space Mountain is closing in April for an extensive refurbishment. It is thought that this project will take months and Space Mountain will most likely not re-open until late 2009. Given the fact that the TTA ride would be unable to continue on its adventure if Space Mountain is "a no go for launch", I would have to guess and say that you will probably find it still closed when you arrive in August. This is always subject to change though, so I would suggest checking back to the Operational Update calendar on the site as your arrival date approaches.

    If it is not operational at the time you are there, I would look at this as another reason to hurry back to WDW. Hope you have a great trip.
