Space Mountain Refurbishments for September



September is usually the time for Space Mountain to undergo some maintenance on this iconic attraction.  Refurbishment time periods have been announced:

  • September 3 to September 5 2013
  • September 10 to September 12 2013
  • September 23 to September 26 2013

In addition to the announcement regarding the closing times, there was a little more information released as to what may be done during this time.  Part of the work will involve trim brakes being added along the track with the aim of reducing the speed during parts of the ride.

For those who don’t know, “trim brakes” are sections of breaks which are intended to adjust a trains speed during it’s course, rather than bringing said train to a complete stop.  We aren’t sure why this is becoming an added feature, but it has something to do with added safety features.

Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
