I haven't been to DL yet, but from what I have been reading most refurbishments are done by June to gear up for summer. I believe in June the entertainment (shows, etc.) are going on but some of them might be only happening on the weekend.

Me too! I'm really excited to see how the parks are different and get a real feel for DLR.

I don't know about how warm the water could be, but we're going to the beach no matter what. We can't go all that way and not see the ocean!!

We are going in June too- had planned on staying at Disneyland hotel, but my dad just gave us his class A RV so this trip has morphed into a two week road trip to include 4 days at DLR- the current plan is to head to Mesa verde, hit 4 corners, head by way of canyon de chelly(sp) to the Grand Canyon, see the Hoover dam, head to LA/SoCal, see a beach and do some kind of Hollywood tour for DD, then spend 4 days at DLR And head home stopping at the Sonora desert museum and making our mark at Cadillac ranch.

At DLR our only plans right now are for blue bayou and potentially the trattoria for the WoC package- but DD uses a wheelchair so I don't know if WOC would be a go for us. A little disappointed about not being able to stay on site, and a little overwhelmed at the differences between WDW which we know so well and DLR but super excited about the trip. Our dates are the first two weeks of June and we will probably be at DLR the 2nd Monday of June- Thurs

Just some food for thought if you have an RV. If you aren't going to stay in the grand canyon, do NOT stay at the Grand Canyon KOA. It is much more expensive and no closer than the Circle Pines KOA in Williams. And, the Circle Pines KOA is great, about an hour drive away from the Canyon. We did the Circle Pines KOA several times and we love it. We've never been lucky enough to actually get a spot in the Canyon campground!

How fun!!! And from what I've read on these boards it sounds like there are reserved spaces at WOC for wheelchairs. You should look into that. Disney is definitely known for their accommodations.

Add us to the list. We're technically arriving on Memorial Day weekend and leaving 6/4 or so. See my new thread. We could really use some input on our itinerary. Trying to decide whether to checkin on Memorial Day and do DLR during the weekdays (tues -Fri) followed by San Diego for 4 nights. OR Arrive San Diego on Sat, your SD Memorial Day through Wed, and then see DLR Fri - Monday.

Can't wait!!!

Can we private message through this website? If we can pm me where you are going because it sounds like where we have been and I will tell you where we have stayed.

We are from Texas so I would suspect we may freeze in the water. Maybe a picnic on the beach or the Santa Monica Pier.

Personally we're choosing to avoid DLR over the weekends. From what I hear they can get pretty crowded with the locals.

I tried to pm and it said you had exceeded your quota. Sorry to hijack!


There are two places near the canyon, probably a couple of hours. One is a drive through bear park and one is out of Africa, which is a fabulous safari park. Not much in Nevada to see. I live in Vegas and it is only so so. Any chance you will hit st George Utah? There is an outdoor theater called Tuacahn. Every year they do a Disney production and it is to die for. Did you say you were doing Mesa verde? That is another great place to visit but that is Colorado'

Did you know that there is a Camping board on the WDW side? I know that it is mostly about Fort Wilderness, but those people are super nice and most will answer any questions you have. Driving (think large vehicle, winds, elevation changes) and maintaining (sewer tanks, etc) a large RV can be a challenge. It would be beneficial at least to read up so you know what's ahead of you.

Sounds like a fantastic trip. We did one very similar twice in the 80s and they are some of our best memories.
