Slow months=more ride closures. Seems like there have been more short-notice closures than usual this year, though. They just announced that Honey I Shrunk The Kids playground and Backlot Tour in DHS would be closed for 6 weeks or so starting this weekend, for example. Also, the Castle projection show will be closed until November- it was only announced a few weeks before it closed.

We are going in very early November, and are disappointed about a few of the closures. But, we realize this is a tradeoff for being able to tour the parks when weather and crowds are both wonderful.

here's a link that you can use any time you want to check on planned refurbs and closures. Of course some guests get upset if refurbs are announced without many months advance notice....

You just scared my socks off until I confirmed (?) that the backlot doesn't close until October.

Oops, sorry- you are correct. HISTK playground is closed for just a few days starting this weekend. Then it closes again in early October for about 6 weeks (as well as the Backlot Tour). Still not a lot of advance notice, but not as bad as it closing right away.

I didn't see where The Magic, The Memories and You was closed, either. I hope that's not true. I was planning to get a better view of it this time.

The last showing of MM&Y was on 9/3. The show is closed until November, when it will reopen as the "Celebrate the Magic" show with different elements. They are also moving the projectors durng the time it is closed.
