Anyway the park needs those slower months to catch up on maintenence and such.
All rides open all the time = lots of down time.
That's what you have to keep in mind: Disneyland -used- to be closed one or two days a week, for maintenance. I'm sure the downtimes were shorter and less frequent, especially when it was two days a week. The trade off we get for 365 days of Disneyland are intentional slow periods (periods without as much marketing, shorter hours, more closed rides/shops/shows/restaurants) to balance out all the times everything has to be 'up'.
That's fine by me, I could go to Disneyland with every single attraction closed and still have a lovely day, just escaping the madhouse of modern life and relaxing in the various environments the park offers.
