More Water Damage

Some of you have asked just how bad the water damage was over the "space" area. The answer is pretty clear in this shot. I was seated in my vehicle when I took this so it was plainly visible to all passengers.

I was trying to get a pic of the airlock door and it wasn't until I got home that I noticed this. Of course, we had to see for ourselves so we made a trip to the catwalk. That's when we discovered the rotten ceiling.

These "skid marks"........ah never mind. I just wanted to say skid marks.

If Disney wasn't willing to fix the show side we new they'd never keep that ride running even with updates.


  1. Surprising to see that on-set. How difficult would it have been to fix?? I thought those panels might be made of fiberglass, but maybe there is metal in there?

    You have to ask, what would have happened if they had "rehab-ed" Horizons. Although it _could_ have been updated nicely, odds are it might not have.

    Just look at what happened to Journey Into Imagination. It's a shell of what it used to be. So, which would you rather have, Horizons with a bad rehab, or not at all? Some may say they would like to remember it like it was, but part of me thinks it would be cool to see the old building there, as long it was structurally safe and not gutted for a roller coaster.

    Then there might have been the chance to update it properly -- at least they added new AA's and scenes to Spaceship Earth. A small step in the right direction.

  2. Yes, but then they got rid of the incredible music it had since 1994 and got rid of Jeremy Irons, and put in a bunch of unemotional crap and Dame Judi Dench's unenthusiastic, phoned-in narration, and a stupid, gimmicky TV screen on the cars that blinds you when you want to see things in the dark areas.
