    Question Operational Updates on DisneyWorld.com

    Is it just me, or is it nearly impossible to find operational updates on the new Disneyworld.com? I know the site SAYS they're on the calendar page, but I keep checking and I find nothing about operational updates. I even went to check out the Magic Kingdom calendar for May (when I know Space Mountain and the TTA are down) and nothing.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Yeah, I knew about Allears and their list. I wanted to see the "official" list.

    I agree with TTAfanatic. The official website is not very user friendly and requires a lot of navigation to hopefully find what you are looking for... if it is even posted. I've found that AllEars.net does an excellent job of keeping everything up to date.

    The old site wasn't user friendly either I can't understand why a company the size of Disney can't make a stress free website that's easy to use. I don't even attempt to go on it anymore, it raises my blood pressure
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I found it very easy to find the updates on the old site. Now, I still can't. I used AllEars' list to plan for our trip next month but there's this nagging in the back of my head that maybe it wasn't complete or up-to-date. I always prefer to check with the official site before we go.

    Good detective work Google Queen! I've got to admit that I tried to find the operational updates on the new / current web site and couldn't figure out where they were...
