Timekeeper Not History Yet?
Recently Walt Disney World closed the Timekeeper attraction in Tomorrowland. Many rumors have circulated that the attraction would be closed permanently and a new attraction would be developed to take its place, possibly even another character meet and greet. Although this may be a temporary solution to utilize the space, it appears it will only be temporary. Timekeeper is currently scheduled to be closed until at least October and the Timekeeper animatronic will be totally rebuilt to increase reliability and correct some chronic problems that have developed over time. Unless the current plan changes, Timekeeper will return.

Timekeeper Space To Become Character Meet & Greet?
Our Magic Kingdom insider reports that after Timekeeper officially closes, Disney will convert the space into yet another Character Meet & Greet area.  This decision reminds many of us at INTERCOT of what Disney did with the 20,000 leagues queue after the attraction closed permanently.  This leaves loyal INTERCOTees wondering, "couldn't they have replaced the attraction with something more interesting?  With the Skyway gone, Carousel of Progress running on a limited schedule and the Galaxy Palace Theatre gathering cobwebs from lack of use... we gaze into the FUTURE of Tomorrowland and see longer lines for the remaining attractions! -May 5
