    I don't go on major holidays. I also usually won't go during the Christmas season unless I'm taking out of towners.

    If I can avoid especially crowded times, I will. Especially now that I don't have an AP.

    When I had an AP there were a couple of times I didn't want to go because I wanted to avoid my brother who was going to be meeting my wife and kids that day.

    I don't go in the summers anymore. I can't stand the heat. Also, everyone is on vacation and you can barely walk (most kids are out of school, NO THANKS!)

    Re: Name a time you didn't want to go to Disneyland

    I had no desire to go when I was pregnant. Nor any desire to go when my children were infants. It just didn't seem worth it because I wouldn't have been able to ride my favorite rides and toting a baby around just didn't seem like it would be fun for me or my baby.

    I know others have taken their infants & I've seen plenty of expectant moms theres and I'm not saying anything about their decision to do so. It just wasn't something I wanted to do.

    Re: Name a time you didn't want to go to Disneyland

    When I was in New York last week, that was the only time I hadn't had the urge to be there. I went to the Disney Store in Times Square for a fix and I didn't think about it otherwise.

    Re: Name a time you didn't want to go to Disneyland

    December 31, 1999. My ex g/f wanted to go with her best friend and her brother. I knew it would be a royal clusterfield that day. Not only that, but the weather was freezing that day, and it rained off and on all day and night. Against my will I ended up going, it wasn't that fun at all, but it was pretty richter at midnight when the clock struck 12:00a.m.!!!

    Summertime. Too hot for the most part. Long holiday weekends. Everyone and their not-so-next-of-kin flock to whatever amusement/theme park is closest.

    Re: Name a time you didn't want to go to Disneyland

    Grad Nites and when it says "yep, it's packed" or "forget about it" on the crowd calendar...

    The only specific incident I recall, though, is one time when a friend of mine talked me into going to Disneyland one Sunday after work. I was exhausted and sick and I'd had a long day at work, and I was still in my "professional" clothes. Plus, I hate doing that "show up at Disney for three hours" thing. I feel like it's not enough time to DO anything. The last thing I wanted to do was go to Disneyland at that point. I just wanted to go home, take my shoes off, make some tea and rest. I ended up going anyway because the friend in question wasn't going to get another Disney trip (her AP was expiring and she was moving so she wasn't replacing it) and she wouldn't go alone.

    Being pregnant at Disneyland was kind of the pits. I wouldn't do it again unless it were a special event (i.e. Dapper Day). I do plan to take my baby, though, because I'm obsessed with photos and my husband has agreed to sit with her while I do rides.

    I don't ever want to go back during summer heat again.
