A Major Attraction REOPENS This Week in Disney World…But What’s Still CLOSED?

Disney World is going through LOTS of changes right now, from the upcoming opening of a new ride to lots of new character meet-and-greets.

Magic Kingdom

If you’re visiting the parks soon, you’ll need to know about all the updates! To help you out, we’ve made a list of what’s NOT available right now in Disney World. Here’s a complete list of the temporary closures in Disney World from March 19th through the 25th.

Magic Kingdom Closures

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

Splash Mountain closed on January 23rd, and it’ll remain closed until late 2024.

Splash Mountain Construction

Disney is re-theming the ride to give it a Princess and the Frog theme. When it reopens, it’ll be called Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.

Most of the attention in Tomorrowland is on the upcoming TRON: Lightcycle Run roller coaster (opening April 4th), but a nearby gift shop is also getting some work done.

Another Look

Tomorrowland Light & Power Co., which for years has served as the exit gift shop for Space Mountain, has been closed for quite some time as it undergoes refurbishment and now we’ve got a BIG update on it! First up, the store has officially been renamed Tomorrowland Launch Depot! New signage for the store has officially been revealed in Magic Kingdom.

NEW Name

From the outside, we could see that some mannequins have been placed in the store with the new TRON look, and some merchandise has been placed in there as well.

Some Peeks Inside

Tomorrowland Launch Depot will be home to the NEW TRON experience where you’ll be able to customize a “Program” action figure that looks and sounds like you, along with an identity chip that can interact with some other merchandise.


For more merchandise, you’ll want to visit a pop-up shop directly across from the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor entrance. It’s unclear if the shop will be outside or inside what used to be Stitch’s Great Escape, but that seems to be the general area Disney is talking about.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is opening EARLY in Magic Kingdom.
