First, thanks to all for your info on DLR, I have learned a great deal.
Here is the deal. I am taking my Mom (63) and two brothers ( 21 & 22) to DLR for their first time. I really want to make their experiences as positive and wonderful as mine have been. Because it is so crazy there now, I thought it would be best to wait until Sep. or Oct. to take them to assist with reduced crowds. I would really like to go in Sep. because I am antsy to go back, but I want to maximize their experience. Here are my questions I can use help on. I apologize if they are dumb, or repetitive, I searched through the forums but could not find what I was looking for.
1. Will it be slow enough in Sep. and Oct. for rookies to get the flavor of DLR?
2. With attraction refurb, etc. when would be a good time to go? I want them to see as much as possible, but I know that HM goes down for overlay, and I heard that POTC may go down? Do you think it is essential for newbies to experience these?
3. Parades and Fireworks. Are they only on days when the resort closes late? We can go whenever, but I thought Mon-Thur would be good and maybe a tad slower, but the tradeoff would be no fireworks, etc. Do they show them on Sunday?
4. Any other tips, etc. to make this a special trip?
Thanks SO much for all the input, you guys are the best.
