Sorry for the extremely long subject line!
I am looking forward to some input from the much more savvy (heh) people here that can help with our family's Disneyland trip planning.
so, I'll try and be succinct. My wife and I want to take our kids to Disneyland this year. It's been something we have wanted to do for YEARS now, but due to health and financial issues, it simply wasn't feasible. Now, while the health issues are still there (and worse than before) we simply cannot wait and need to make this trip happen.
All was going well, we had the dates booked to go in May, where it's very quiet according to my research, but at the last minute I came to the site here and saw something that has ruined our plans, during the time we will be there, the two most important attractions for my wife, Small world and Pirates, will be closed for renovations. As this may be the only time we can get there, at least in the near future, these are key to the trip, having one of them closed is bad, both is a deal breaker.
The problem is that due to my disability, I can't hang around for hours waiting for rides, plus the thought of going when it's busy is also a problem.
As those 2 attractions are closed until the summer, it shifts our dates until later in the year. We are considering September/October. Thankfully my kids are young enough that it won't be a massive impact to miss a week of school, which provides us options as far as dates are concerned.
But, is that a safe time to assume Pirates and Small world will be open? I know that something could happen causing the rides to be shut down for repair, but as far as standard maintenance goes and prepping for the holiday, what would be the best time to consider?
My wife is pretty upset with regards to delaying the trip, but I understand and appreciate her reasoning. I just want to find a time that will work for her.
