Disney World Refurbs and Ride Closings

LAST UPDATE: June 2024

There is nothing worse than anticipating a specific Disney attraction, and after you arrive, finding out that it will be closed for the duration of your stay. Below is a complete list of the Walt Disney World rehab and refurbishment schedules that you can expect in the upcoming weeks and months. You can't plan for sudden closings, but you can manage your expectations by referring to the list below before your Disney vacation. Not all "shut downs" are scheduled, and there are countless reasons why an attraction might suddenly close. Don't get mad at the cast members, it's not their fault. Things at the parks have to be maintained regularly in order to continue working properly.

NOTE: Our listings are only for those refurbishments that will likely have an impact on the majority of guests.

Unless it's a full scale remodel, it's considered standard maintenance and is not included in our refurb/rehab schedule.
