My wife has never been to a Disney park of any kind, and for our aniversary, we're going on a whirlwind vacation, including the Grand Canyon and three days at Disneyland. I could make an entire thread asking for suggestions on how to wow a first timer at Disney, but in this instance, I'm a bit mystified by the official Disney schedule for California Adventure and World of Color. We are going June 16-18 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). It seems bizarre to me that California Adventure is scheduled to close at 6:00 p.m. all week, and World of Color is supposed to premiere on the 11th. The World of Color does not even appear on the newly released schedule for June, anywhere.
I am not so dense as to assume the daily-updated Park Schedule is what is going to be the schedule in a month from now. I'm also mystified as to why Disneyland is scheduled to shut their doors - in the summertime, after schools are out - at 9:00 p.m. every night we're there, except for the Friday.
Can anyone explain what is going on? Why no World of Color on the schedule, why California Adventure scheduled to be closed at 6:00 p.m., and why is Disneyland supposed to be open til midnight on the 15th (the day we drive in) but then only open until 9:00 p.m. on the 16th and 17th? The previous week, Disney is scheduled to be open until midnight almost every day.
