Hello. I have been planning a trip to take my daughter to Disneyland for her first time for her birthday. I originally wanted to take her August 25-28 so that we would be there on her actual birthday(25th). However the Haunted mansion is supposed to close down that week and I really would like her to experience it as well as see it myself again for the first time in nearly 20 years.
I then figured I would take her the week before (18-21) but then learned about AP block out dates. Would the week starting August 11 be less crowded? Would shifting the days so that I am there on a Saturday (triple block out) be worth it or is sticking to Monday-Thursday better?
