    I keep trying to tell the wife that we should go to Disney without the girls, but she ain't trying to hear it.
    I love going to Disney, it doesn't help ABC use to always have the shows go back in the day and made it seem so cool.

    It's as if Disney don't even want people to go

    I mean, there really is no good time to do it where you won’t inconvenience customers. But still...sucks it’ll be surrounded by a fence when we’re there. I mean, it IS the focal point of the park.

    Oh well. Glad there’s a ton of other stuff to do.

    Just got to Candy Cane Inn, the pass was closed and had to go all the way over to 101 from 5, wasn’t fun. But we are here...

    We’ll have a few days in the rain, hopefully no one in the parks, then Friday should be clear.

    The wife and I haven’t been in 3 years (honey moon) , taking the kids. Been looking forward to this for months.

    have a great time and hopefully yall can catch the parades and fireworks on friday

    if you're already near the property then rain is more tolerable and might be a blessing in disguise with less crowds

    When do the winter refurbishments generally end at DL? I know they can happen at any time, but I just found out Space Mountain closes for refurbishment on Feb. 25. Starting to get the feeling that my discounted tickets were probably discounted for a reason. :smh:

    I can handle some whatever rides being down, but seeing these iconic ones down for our trip has me rethinking things...

    really no set date on when they''ll finish but they're likely trying to finish it up before SWLand to pre-occupy some guests elsewhere

    it does suck especially the ~3 months long closure of the castle

    ^ Damn, didn't know the castle was 3 months. My tickets are good through May 23, so a delay may be in order. Might make sense as spring break crowds obviously won't affect May dates like they will in March. Hmmmmm.....
