5 Continuing Closures (And 2 New Ones!) in Disney World Next Week!

On your trip to Disney World, you’ll probably notice a few rides are down for refurbishment!

The Hall of Presidents

We’re here to keep you in the know when it comes to these closures! So today, we’re bringing you a refurbishment update on all the attractions that will be unavailable from April 12th through April 18th, 2021.

Magic Kingdom Refurbishments

Walt Disney World Railroad 

The Walt Disney World Railroad is still closed, after being shuttered for over 2 years! Construction on TRON: Lightcycle Run is in the way of the tracks, so the train is unable to run.

Walt Disney World Railroad “In Residence”

Disney hasn’t released any information about the railroad in a long time. But since the TRON construction is reportedly delayed, we’re guessing we’ll have to wait a while! That construction will have to make significant progress before the train can get up and running again.

Check Out the Progress of the TRON Coaster!

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

PeopleMover fans: we are so sorry. The closure has been extended yet again! This Tomorrowland icon has been closed since March 2020, and we’re one of many who can’t wait to ride it again.


Currently, the reopening is scheduled for May 1st, 2021. We’ve got our fingers crossed!

Here’s What We Know About the PeopleMover! 

The Hall of Presidents 

The Hall of Presidents is closed for a pretty typical refurbishment! It shuts its doors each time a new president is elected — right now, it’s installing President Joe Biden.

Disney hasn’t announced an expected reopening date, but we’ll keep an eye out for any updates!

Main Street Confectionery

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll have to head somewhere else for your candy fix! The Main Street Confectionery has closed for a long refurb. But good news! All that sweet stuff has been moved to Main Street Cinema in the meantime.

Confectionery Closure Sign

The Confectionery is currently listed as closed through June 19th, but it could be far longer. Disney hasn’t released its refurbishment calendar past that date, so we really don’t know when the Confectionery will reopen. We’ll keep you posted!

Disney World Resort Refurbishments

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is undergoing some big changes! Currently, we’re seeing construction on the entryway, lobby, and monorail station. The guest rooms are also getting a Moana makeover — and you can book a reservation starting in July! We’ll see the rest of the work wrap up this summer, too.

Monorail Construction

If we hop over to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, we’ll see some work is just getting started! The Main Tower Rooms are being refurbished this year, and construction has already begun: an entire section of rooms has been covered with scrim! And even if you’re just passing through on the monorail, you’ll notice that the noise is loud.

That’s a lot of construction!

Lastly, at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, a pool area is getting a little TLC! Meadow Swimmin’ Pool’s waterslide and splash pad will both undergo refurbishment starting April 12th.

Meadow Swimmin’ Pool

The work is expected to last through May 2021, but Meadow Swimmin’ Pool itself will remain open throughout the construction!

  1. There is nothing wrong with the People Mover. Cast members have been “testing it.” I think its closure was related to the construction delayed Tron Lightcycle. Maybe they don’t want people to get a good look at it.
