    Question Rides closing?

    This morning when I was driving my children to school I heard on the radio that Disneyland is going to be closing down some rides to work on them - Pirates of the Carribean, It's a Small World, Pinocchio, and Alice in Wonderland, because they are stalling. I didn't catch all the information so I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this? We just booked a trip to go to DL for the first week of December and I would be so disappointed if all those rides were closed while we were there.
    TIA

    Small World will be going down after the holiday season until the holidays next year (long refurb). Alice is down right now but I'm not sure when it will be up again. Haven't heard anything about POTC or Pinocchio. Maybe others can give more information.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Welcome to MiceChat! According to Disneyland's (terrible) website, the only thing closed in DL during that week is the River Belle Terrace. Looks like you're in luck!

    Welcome to mice chat minnie!

    We will be there the first week of December as well and I agree, having those rides down will suck so I hope it isn't happening.

    I knew about the Small World refurb coming up after the holiday season. I haven't heard anything about rides "staling" though.

    Thanks everyone I am glad to hear that It's a Small World won't be closed until after the holidays as that was my favourite ride when I was a child, and I can't wait to take my dd on it.

    First week of December visitor here too! Last time I checked, just in case you happen to walk across the way to the other park soon to be worth going to...Monsters Inc was going to be down that week as well.

    Also, as of this morning, Jedi Trading Academy is still not on the calendar in December - anyone know why?
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Wow, that's a lot of us! We should have a meet or at least a picture/hand shake session at the hub!

    We are arriving on the 6th and will be there through the 9th.

    How exciting so many of you will be at the resort the first week of December. Try to fit in a noon meet on Sunday Always a fun way to spend an hour or two and make new friends.

    MiceChat Meets every Sunday at Noon at the Walt and Mickey statue in the hub. - See you there!
