Another major attraction is going to close soon for a major refurbishment.

We're referring to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, that will temporarily cease to operate starting from January 9, 2012 (the same day Dumbo the Flying Elephant closes for refurbishment), and will reopen almost five months later, on May 28, 2012.

This gives us some hope about the attraction, since we all know that it is in very bad conditions, including the queue area. Many rumors state that there are some plans to implement a new "next-generation" queue line, where guests could interact with some small games in the queue, while waiting for their turn to ride. Personally, I'm not holding my breath on that, since there's really no need to do so for Big Thunder Mountain..

My only hope is that they refurbish the queue area and the ride in general, making it look just like it looked when it first opened. What do you think? What would you expect from such a long refurbishment?
