    Matterhorn Refurb

    We are trying to plan a vacation where the HM will be regular (not NBC) and the Matterhorn will be running. Does anyone know a date for the Matterhorn Refurb to put the new sleds in?

    We are looking at Feb. of 09.

    Thanks!

    I don't even think they're planning on putting the new sleds in since they've recently brought on a bunch of rebuilt sleds. Doesn't mean they won't close it to work on the track though...
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.


    By the way my shirt in the pic says "I like big sharks and I cannot lie"

    For crowd purposes I would go in February. Besides August is super crowded. I love going to the parks when they aren't busy! I don't know any of the refurb dates for Matterhorn but HM should be up around then.

    When you day August is crowded do you mean just weekends because we go on the weekdays about the second week in August and its pretty good. Most wait times are under 20 min besides Space, Splash, and sometimes Indy

    I look at some Disney web site and there is nothing on the Calendar on the refurb to Matterhorn. Who say it may pop up onthe list.

    I had a wait time of a total of 15 minutes on an August weekday... Even if it did recently broke down and re-opened up. It was lower then 20 minutes.

    So not alllllways over 20 minutes.

    Re: Matterhorn Refurb

    Disneyland emailed me back and said that they do not have a date set yet for the refurb of The Matterhorn. So I guess we just have to make a guess. I would think August would be better for all rides being open but February would be better for wait times and weather.

    How hot is it typically in mid-late August at Disneyland?

    I would hope that they would install the new sleds on one track while leaving the other open, and then switch once the new one is working but who knows...

    Re: Matterhorn Refurb

    So,

    What is the weather like in mid-late August in Anaheim?

    I've checked all of the weather sites but I would like to hear it from some people who actually live there!
