  1. The news of the delay for refurbs at the Studios isn’t really surprising, considering they’ve had issues lately with all 3 of their headliners (TSMM, ToT and RnR) opening on time. I’ve heard several times recently that all 3 had delayed openings in the morning due to technical or safety issues. Of course, when this happens, it mean people are wandering the park looking for something to do. So, I can see where taking these attractions down might create a problem for a park that is already short on attractions.
