Default Space mountain down.....not

So I wrote drop today at Magic Kingdom to get on Space Mountain and they said it was shut down for a half an hour for technical issues so I went on people mover and I hear people screaming on the ride why can't they just say closed for special event

So I went back to get in line for Space Mountain and saw hundreds of little kids wearing matching shirts come off so obviously special event.

Does seem rather bizarre that they would just lie like that. Especially when it's so easy to get caught!

When a ride really closes for technical issues they never, ever tell you how long it will be closed for. The “half an hour” was a bit of a giveaway, there.

Maybe one of those kids caused a "Code V" and it had to be cleaned up.

No..not fake screaming. It was literally dozens and dozens coming out of the exit/gift shop.

Some were saying they rode it 3 times.

Definitely special event


I was literally the first person on line..the cast member said it was closed due to technical issues... someone asked if he was joking....and he was kinda rude..." No, I'm not joking, we are experiencing technical issues, come back around 10". How would he know the issues we're going to be fixed by 10?
Trust me. I went on people move 2 times. It was open and operational.
Everyone off the ride were talking about it while we were being told it was shut down. Just don't freekin iie about it..and at rope drop, they should have told us.
Also the experience app said 10 minute wait.

I’m sorry for your frustration. Disney should be Magical. I hate when they do things like this.
