You’ll also want to know what’s NOT available at the theme parks and hotels right now. Here’s a complete list of the temporary closures in Disney World from March 26th through April 1st.
Magic Kingdom Closures
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
Splash Mountain closed on January 23rd, and it’ll remain closed until late 2024.
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.
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.
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.
TRON Lightcycle / Run is opening EARLY in Magic Kingdom.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios Closures
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster closed a while ago for the start of a long refurbishment.
This coaster will likely be closed for at least a few weeks, possibly a few months. Disney announced that it should reopen in the summer of 2023, although they did not provide a specific reopening date.
Voyage of the Little Mermaid
This stage show about The Little Mermaid has been closed for a long time in Hollywood Studios.
Disney hasn’t announced when or if the show will reopen.
Find out how to get to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
This little snack kiosk near Test Track has been through a few different renovations. We saw a new sign installed that said “Refreshment Station.”
Disney may be working on a new plan for the space, so we’ll keep watching for any more updates.
