It’s Memorial Day weekend, which usually means big crowds in Disney World and long lines at the rides. However, there are a few rides that aren’t even OPEN this week!
Disney World occasionally shuts down rides and attractions in order to update and refurbish them. To help you get ready for your trip, we compiled a list of all the closures in Disney World from May 28th through June 3rd.
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. On a recent trip, we noticed that the tree stump at the top of this ride has been removed. We’ll keep an eye out for more updates.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Closures
The Boneyard is an interactive dinosaur-themed play area for kids in DinoLand U.S.A. This area is now closed for a long refurbishment (which started on May 1st).
The Boneyard is expected to reopen on June 13th. Note that part of this area — the Dino Dig Site — has reopened early.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios Closures
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.
Disney Water Park Refurbishments
Disney World’s Blizzard Beach Water Park has closed for refurbishments. Disney hasn’t announced how long this closure will last.
Typhoon Lagoon — Disney World’s other water park — has reopened.
Those are all of the closures for Disney World this week! But before you head out the door — are you all packed for your trip? Check out this Ursula-inspired outfit to celebrate the recent release of the live-action The Little Mermaid.
