Word has come from some WDW insiders that the MK's Big Thunder Mountain will not reopen on time, but will hopefully be open sometime next week, before the Thanksgiving rush begins.

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Well, the word that it would take longer than expected for the Magic Kingdom's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction at WDW to come out of refurbishment was true.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was scheduled to be reopened Sunday, November 23, 2003: following its August 24 - November 22, 2003 refurbishment but they needed an additional week for it. It will now reopen on Wednesday, November 26th.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad did indeed reopen yesterday at WDW's Magic Kingdom but remains closed at Disneyland where the fatal accident occurred.

Click here for news about the cause of that accident.

Included in a news report, a Disney spokeperson says a decorative wheel, not necessary for operation, was removed from all of the Big Thunder Mountain attractions at all four Disney theme parks worldwide. That's the first I've heard about that.
