Does a January/February visit mean ride closures?


We love visiting WDW during non-peak times...lower costs and, more importantly, less crowds! But on our last trip in 2010 this also meant that a major ride (Splash Mountain) was closed during our trip (not counting the mad dash we made into the park when we should've been heading to the airport to squeeze in one ride at opening! note to anyone considering this in the future, splash mountain is a LONG ride...we had to run to get a taxi and hitch a ride to the airport, barely making our flight! But, it was worth it! )

So, now I have been paying more attention to ride closures and the January/February time slot seems to be one of the higher periods for ride maintenance.

I totally understand the need...I just don't want to visit and have one of our fav rides be out of service.

We typically book a year in advance...is there any where to view planned closures that far out?

Also, am I right in thinking that Jan. is the most likely time of year for major rides to be shut down (after the holidays, before Spring break)?

We have previously also enjoyed visits in the non-peak time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but with little ones at home now, that time of year is so hectic...are there other great non-peak travel times that are less likely to see closures?

Thanks in advance for sharing!
