Refurbishment Schedule

Disney World Refurbishments

Everyone hates to arrive at their long-anticipated Disney World vacation to find that their favorite ride will be closed for refurbishment during their stay! However, it is important for Disney to keep rides operating smoothly and to make updates from time to time. I have found that knowing what will be closed prior to my trip helps to eliminate some of that disappointment of just being surprised by it when we arrive.

This list will be updated as new refurbishments are released, so check back before your trip so you can plan accordingly: Last Updated 1/1/2018
