Disneyland Resort is testing padding for the seats on the Matterhorn Bobsleds. This follows several guest complaints that the new bobsleds, which were introduced during the 2012 refurbishment, were uncomfortable. While all bobsleds have had the padding installed, cast members informed us that it is still just a test.
In related news, the Matterhorn Bobsleds has been added to the refurbishment calendar, with the attraction going down on April 18. It is unknown what work will be done during this refurbishment.

Grizzly River Run is set to reopen from refurbishment on March 16. The opening will be short-lived however as the attraction has been added to the refurbishment schedule with a second downtime starting on April 18. We do not know why the attraction has been scheduled for refurbishments close together, with a possible explanation being that the work could not be completed during the first downtime, but park officials wanted the attraction open during the busy spring break period.
Disney Artist, Dave Avanzino, will be on hand for special appearances and signings March 19-20, 2016 at Disneyana on Main Street, U.S.A. from 11a.m.-7p.m.
