Sometimes things happen in Disney World that aren’t so magical.
Animatronics can fail, rides can go down due to weather, or technical issues could temporarily close rides. That’s exactly what happened to one ride in Disney’s Animal Kingdom today.
If you had plans to visit the Dino Institute in DinoLand, U.S.A. today to help Dr. Seeker “go get that dino,” you’ll need to make alternative plans. That’s because that ride, Dinosaur, is currently closed.
We were told the ride was closed due to technical issues. Cast Members did not have an ETA on when it might reopen. So if that was part of your plan today for Animal Kingdom, you’ll have to enjoy other attractions in the park instead. If you want to still see some dinosaurs, you can always see Chip ‘n’ Dale in their dino outfits at their meet and greet at Donald’s Dino-Bash.
You can also visit the Dino Institute Gift Shop, where you can buy actual fossilized dinosaur poop (no really). Or you can just walk around DinoLand, U.S.A., looking for all those hidden secrets and Easter eggs.
Of course, there are plenty of OTHER rides in Animal Kingdom, including TriceraTop Spin. Or venture out of DinoLand and head on over to Expedition Everest or Kilimanjaro Safaris. The whole of Pandora is also in Animal Kingdom, just ready to be explored.
However, if you DO want to ride Dinosaur today, keep an eye on the My Disney Experience app so you’ll know when the ride reopens. If you time it right, you could be among the first to ride it after it reopens!
