5 CLASSIC Attractions Will Be Closed in Disney World This Week

Several Disney attractions have been closed for maintenance or refurbishment recently.

The Hall of Presidents

We like to keep you up-to-date on these closures, so you know exactly what to expect on your Disney vacation. Today, we’re bringing you a refurbishment update on all the attractions scheduled to be closed from March 1st through March 7th, 2021.

Animal Kingdom Refurbishments

Kali River Rapids

Kali River Rapids closed in January for its regular winter refurbishment. Since fewer guests want to get wet in the colder weather, this is a popular time for water ride maintenance.

It’s scheduled to be back up on April 2nd!

EPCOT Refurbishments

Rose and Crown Dining Room

Rose and Crown Dining Room in EPCOT’s United Kingdom Pavilion closed for refurbishment on February 15th. It’s due to reopen on March 21st, so this closure shouldn’t be too long!

However, if you’re craving some British eats in the meantime, the Pub and Yorkshire County Fish Shop will remain open, just a short walk away!

Magic Kingdom Refurbishments

Walt Disney World Railroad

The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for over 2 years to clear a path for construction on TRON: Lightcycle Power Run. Currently, this construction is blocking the train’s path through Tomorrowland!

Maint Street, U.S.A. Train Station

Disney has not announced a reopening date for the railroad, but it may be a while. We also don’t have an opening date for TRON, and that construction will need to make significant progress before we can ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad again. We have our fingers crossed for 2022!

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

The PeopleMover has been closed for almost a year — since March 2020. Its reopening date has been pushed back several times after what was originally supposed to be a quick closure.

Even though we saw testing on the ride recently, the closure was just extended for the fifth time. The PeopleMover is now expected to reopen on April 4th, 2021.

Disney World Resort Refurbishments

Some of the resorts are also seeing major work. At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, the entryway, lobby, and monorail station are all being refurbished. The guest rooms are also getting a new Moana theme! These projects should be completed in summer 2021.

Kiki Tikis Splash Play area at the Polynesian is also being refurbished — it should open at the end of March. Plus, the Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is also undergoing construction. It’s closed through early April.
