    Thank you for starting this thread!
    For anyone visiting the week of May 21st and especially the weekend before, be aware of the SoCal Promo Ticket expiration crowds! The week of the promo expiration and the weekend before are historically very busy in the parks as locals scramble to use their tickets before the last date.

    Oh, boy. I was hoping for a calmer week for my 1st visit and probably only trip to Disneyland. Thankfully we have 5 day tickets. I'm hoping to get to ride the new refurbished Snow White before we leave and wouldn't mind if we got a sneak peak at Avengers Campus too. So excited! I love WDW but I'm looking forward to see Disneyland and all the different things it has to offer. :yay::dogdance::banana:

    You have enough time to make get organized and make good plans! Being prepared is half the game plan, right? You're already starting off with a great attitude! Make your plans and reservations, be positive and flexible, and get ready to have a magical trip!

    Welcome to the May group!

    I went around this time last year, and one of the good things about going during an expected busy time is the hours are typically longer, which takes the pressure off completing a lot in one day. With 5 days, you'll be able to get to all your must-do's and have time for repeats on your favorite rides.

    I'm really hoping Snow White is up and running, as well. It's always fun to be there for new things. I'll add the Avengers Campus, too...thanks for the reminder! That would be amazing if you're able to see it on this trip!

    What a great way to celebrate your 60th! The Hotel Indigo is a great choice...I loved my stay there, and the staff was wonderful!

    May 9-13 BWPPI (unless I can figure out a way to use Chase points for DLH).

    As the section is called "Potential" closures, I'll toss out there that Touring Plans has Haunted Mansion closed through May 11, and that King Arthur Carrousel has no announced reopen date yet.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've added HM and King Arthur Carrousel to the list of possibilities. I hope the DLH works out for you!

    Probably going to be in California, starting with a few days in LA area, beginning Wednesday, 5/20 for 7 or so days. It’s my DDs graduation trip and if I’m going we are going to do as much as possible while still having a little relaxing time. I’m still on the fence about the exact days and itinerary. Probably going with Fairfield Inn on Harber for our DL days.

    May 24-27 at Grand Californian for our first trip to Disneyland! We have done a few trips to WDW and I like the more laid back approach to planning here!

    I thought I heard the tentative date for Snow White to re-open was May 22?

    I sure hope so! I know things get closed for refurbishment and need to, but I selfishly want nothing closed while I'm there since who knows when I'll get to go back. LOL
