At Walt Disney World Resort, the magic is continuously evolving. To ensure every guest experiences the best of Disney, attractions and amenities sometimes undergo refurbishments or seasonal closures. Not all Walt Disney World Theme Park and Resort Closures and Rehabs listed will appear on Disney’s official rehab calendar. For updated information on attraction closings, call 407-W-DISNEY (934-7639) just before your scheduled visit. Schedules below are meant as an informative rather than official guide and are gathered from several official and unofficial sources.
Why Refurbishments and Seasonal Closures?
Keeping the magic alive means ensuring every ride, show, and facility is at its best. Refurbishments ensure attractions remain safe, modern, and enjoyable. Seasonal closures, on the other hand, allow for themed overlays or adjustments in line with various celebrations throughout the year.
