screamscape.net speculates that Disney may be cutting attraction costs by saying theyre "refurbs". "According to an insider Disney may be planning on putting a few extra attractions into lengthy rehabs in 2009. This isn’t because they are falling apart or need the extra work, instead it may be their way of putting a friendly disguise over a new cost cutting concept. The idea is that they can shutting down some of the most costly to run attraction for longer than necessary in order to save money here and there from not having to operate them. One such rehab being given the eye as a possible test concept may be the Backlot Tour at the Hollywood Studios, which would cut the cost of not only running the trams, but also the expensive power and gas bill that comes from Catastrophe Canyon. Another attraction that already seems to have been put under wraps is the Universe of Energy at Epcot, which is already listed as being closed through March. There may be an even darker force at work here, as some recall that 20,000 Leagues was also shut down an “extended rehab” and then it just never reopened again. This has got people wondering if we might see another attraction quietly fade away in the same manor."
