Before you hit the road, you’ll want to make sure you’ve checked out what’s going to be CLOSED at the Disney World parks and hotels. To help you prepare, we have a list of all the scheduled closures in Disney World for this week, from July 9th through the 15th.
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 spotted the new “Tiana’s Foods” water tower up in front of the ride. We’ll keep an eye out for more updates.
Barrel Bridge at Tom Sawyer Island
Over on Tom Sawyer Island, the barrel bridge is currently closed. In fact, it’s missing completely!
A Cast Member told us that the bridge had been removed for refurbishments, and they’re not sure when it might be back.
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 World Hotel Refurbishments
There are several construction projects happening at Disney World hotels right now. Over at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds, the Trail’s End Restaurant is closed. When it reopens this summer, this spot will no longer be a table service restaurant. Instead, it’ll be “a marketplace concept with expanded quick service options.”
There’s also lots of construction happening at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, as a new DVC tower is being built. You might see or hear construction if you’re staying at that hotel.
Over at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, some of the guest rooms are being updated, and the lobby is also getting a refresh.
Also, there’s a NEW restaurant coming to the BoardWalk: The Cake Bake Shop.
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 — is currently open.
Those are all of the closures for Disney World this week! But before you head out the door — do you need a new outfit for your trip? Check out this outfit that’s inspired by the Disney World Monorail.
