Wow, that's a lot of closures. We'll be there 23-25 for the parks. Right in the middle of all of it.

It really isn't too bad. The trade off of mild weather and light crowds makes missing a few favorites worth it.

What is the "west entrance tunnel"? Is that one of the two tunnels you can walk under the Disneyland Railroad right near the front of the park? Like this?



And where are the Tour Gardens?

And where are the Tour Gardens?
I was wondering about those things myself. So I looked them up.

Yes, the West Entrance Tunnel is in that photo. And the Tour Garden is (I believe) where the tour groups gather near City Hall.

We're going during NAMM, they say it really doesn't increase park traffic.

Was wondering this also. We usually stay at the Anaheim Plaza, but its sold out that weekend. Does that mean the parks are going to be crazy crowded? Has anyone ever been while NAMM is being held??

Actually all the veterans I've seen on here say it greatly increases traffic. They offer attendees tix for reduced prices. Plus families if attendees that go to DL while SO is at conference.

Just booked our trip

January 23 - 27 at DLH!

A bit of a spontaneous trip. We had to put down our 12 1/2 year old golden retriever on Wed. last week and Grandma died on Friday.

We need some DLR magic to perk us up!
