Plan on Celebrating Without Space

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

I just received the 2009 Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD in the mail yesterday and here are some notes on what I found inside:

-The package and DVD is littered with balloons, it looks like a seasonal overlay of the 2008 DVD, very similar:


-The WDW brochure inside has also been updated for the celebration:


-More interestingly, this brochure features a map of the Magic Kingdom missing one of its signature attractions…


Notice there is no mention of Space Mountain, it simply sits there as a mystery structure

As many of you who follow this site are well aware, Space Mountain is scheduled for a still “unannounced” refurbishment in 2009, and the fact that the attraction is missing from this pamphlet and the DVD itself should remove the doubt from anyone’s mind about upcoming changes over at Space Mountain next year. Stay tuned to WDW News Today as we gather more information on this rumored refurbishment.
