Seems like more rides than normal are being closed and refurbished for extended periods of time.
It's a treasure-we found it together
Yikes- April and May are pretty rough!
Why do people go on The Amazing Race without bothering to learn how to drive a stick shift?
On the map, the second part of the it's a small world refurb is scheduled for April 21 through May 29.
Matterhorn again! Seriously the last time we took my mom to Disneyland was the year it was closed for major refurb. Now it's down again. It seems like it's been closed more the last 3 years than it's been open! Anyone want to do the math?

After the fall from Space Mountain's roof last year, I think the lawyers are cracking down, it seems a lot of them involve fall protection upgrades. (OSHA as well, perhaps?)
Wow, both Plaza Inn and IASW go down for refurb on Easter Sunday? They're not even waiting until the holiday weekend is over?
So iasw is only open 11 days and then back down again? BUMMER!

Hi - can someone confirm that the Disneyland Railroad is now open? I know the refurb was extended through the 15th, but I want to make sure it wasn't (for whatever reason) extended again because it's the only ride my son wants to go on over and over again. We would like to go to Disneyland tomorrow or Wednesday and he'd be extremely dissapointed if it were closed. TIA!!

Yep, it's up and running. We went on it yesterday (Saturday). Have fun!

"Would it help?"
I wonder what kinds of things they will be addressing on matterhorn.
Perhaps the uncomfortable sleds?

The post is obviously old, so ...

The Matterhorn refurbishment will not happen that soon - the unofficial start date is 8/25.
iasw is now scheduled to reopen 5/23
Sweet Spot - we miss you!
Redwood Creek was still closed when I visited DCA on April 14th.

Everything in life is only for now.
Nope - it never ends.

I don't update this thread - the most recent changes are in the weekly Disneyland Resort Update. We noted there that the RWCCT refurbishment had been extended.
