Splash Mountain Closure at Magic Kingdom Confirmed for January/February 2010

After a couple of initial reports of a closure for an extended closure of Splash Mountain 2010, I have followed up on the request of a Stitch Kingdom reader and am sad to report that the attraction is in fact listed on at least one official Disney source as being scheduled for closure from January 3 through February 27, 2010. ReSearch has been updated to reflect this and subscribers affected by this change have been notified.
