Planning a trip to Disney World can be hard!

One thing we can all agree on — being prepared is essential. That’s why we’re sharing with you a big detail that might affect your upcoming trip to Disney World.

That’s right: both Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad are closing this month. Last month, we finally got a closing date for Splash Mountain — and this closure is a big one.

As of January 23rd, Disney will be working on converting this ride into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a retheming that has been highly anticipated.

We got a first look at this new ride at the D23 Expo, and we’re excited to see what’s to come!

This new ride is set to open in late 2024, so it will be a while before this attraction is open.

That’s not all that’s closing, though. Starting January 9th, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be closing for refurbishment. However, this one will only be for a few days. According to Disney, the closure will only last through January 13th.
