Hello! This will be our second trip to Disney World with our son and we used your site HEAVILY to plan our first trip. It was indispensable for us!

Last time we went in December, but this time we are planning for January. I called Disney and they said their 2015 prices should be climbing out in the next few weeks, so we start our real planning. I was wondering if you know when they will announce the 2015 attraction closures? Their are only 4 that would affect our decision- Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story Mania, Star Tours, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Any ideas?

Thanks so much! Nicole

Hi Nicole and I’m so glad the site helped! Attraction closures are not that predictable except Splash Mountain which almost always closes, and the announcements are often low key and late. You may not know til December.

That is what I figured. Fortunately, I used this info to convince my husband we should go in December again. We are headed to Disney the second week of December 2014 and I can’t wait!
