So you’re dreaming of your ultimate vacation for this spring/summer to visit the mouse.  I find it’s best to know which attractions will be down for refurbishment while planning my trip.  Disney is constantly building and upgrading various aspects in their parks.  I do not see refurbishment in a negative way.  Sure it stinks that attraction may have downtime when you are visiting, but I’d rather be prepared ahead of time so my little one doesn’t get her hopes set high on riding an attraction that is scheduled to be down (and mine too).

Addison is all decked out and ready for her first day in a Disney Park!
