    Just found out his favorite ride Test Track, will be closed while we are there. What do you think the best way to handle delivering the news would be? Do it ahead of time to prep him or pretend to find out at the park together?

    Hi Angelene! It's always sad when an attraction is closed. Big Thunder was closed on our last trip and my daughter was sad, but then she quickly forgot when we rode Splash Mountain a few extra times. You know your boy best, so you'll know the best to time let him know, although minimizing stress while on vacation always does help! I would focus on the positive, whenever you do it. The fact that it's closed means they are making his favourite attraction even better! Imagine the fun he's going to have riding it the next time. And during this trip, he'll get to enjoy so many other new, fun things!

    Hope this helps Angelene! Wishing you the most magical vacation!
