12 Closures That Could Interrupt Your Disney World Vacation

Planning a trip to Disney World is no mean feat! You’ve got to book Park Pass Reservations, decide on dining plans, pack your bags with all the essentials, and keep track of all the changes happening in the parks.

Magic Kingdom

We can help you out with that last task right now! If you’re visiting Disney World soon, read on to see everything that’s going to be CLOSED in Disney World this week, from September 25th through October 1st.

Magic Kingdom Closures

Walt Disney World Railroad

The fan-favorite Walt Disney World Railroad will sadly continue its long closure in Magic Kingdom this week.

Walt Disney World Railroad

Disney still hasn’t given an update on when this ride could reopen, but it might stay closed until construction is finished on the TRON: Lightcycle Run roller coaster. That project has interrupted the train tracks in Tomorrowland, preventing the train from running its usual route. The TRON coaster is expected to open in the spring of 2023.

Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.

The Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. gift shop is located at the end of the Space Mountain coaster. It’s currently closed, so guests are being directed to exit a different way.

Closed for now

Disney hasn’t announced when this store will reopen, but it looked pretty empty inside (no shelves or merchandise) the last time we saw it.

Enchanted Tales with Belle

Enchanted Tales with Belle is still closed in Fantasyland.

Disney hasn’t announced when this character meet-and-greet attraction will return.

Pete’s Silly Sideshow

Another character spot is also closed: Pete’s Silly Sideshow. This is where Minnie, Daisy, Goofy, and Donald used to hang out and meet guests.

Disney has said this spot will reopen “in the coming months,” so we’re watching carefully to see when we can return!

Meet Ariel at Her Grotto

Although Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid is still open, the Ariel meet-and-greet location nearby is closed for now.
