File this piece under “the least surprising news in the wilderness”:

After months of officially insisting that Disneyland’s iconic Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride in California would return from its multi-month refurbishment in time for fall 2013 holiday season — despite rampant rumors that there was still extensive work to be done — Mickey has finally admitted that you won’t be taking any rides past the newly-rebuilt town of Rainbow Ridge until early next year.

The announcement only provides a vague reopening time period of “Winter [early] 2014,” but we’ve updated our attraction closures webpage with a tentative return date of February 15, 2014.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

  • …waiting just long enough to ensure no impact on holiday bookings. What a rat.

    • That’s a really good observation, actually. It’s probably why DLR played all the late-spring/early-summer DOSHA-related ride closures close to the vest, too.
