Disney World Ride Closures and Anticipated Reopen Dates (2024-Beyond)

Last Updated on: April 21st, 2024

There is nothing worse than getting to a theme park only to discover your favorite ride or show is closed. Hopefully, I can help you avoid that issue with this handy rundown of Disney World ride closures and open dates….

Being open year-round and having so many attractions and facilities makes it pretty much impossible for Walt Disney World to have 100% of their attractions open 100% of the time. To keep things safe and looking like new, attractions need to be regularly maintained and sometimes refurbished. Below is a quick listing of the current Disney World closures and their anticipated open dates (for new attractions), reopen dates (for refurbished rides) and close dates (for the dearly departed rides).

When planning your trip to Disney World, be sure to do a little research to be sure your favorite rides are all up and running so you can have the most magical experience possible without the unfortunate surprise of closed Disney World rides that you were looking forward to.

As always, it should be noted that Disney World ride closures and availability dates can be subject to change, so be sure to check the official Disney World website for specific ride info.

I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
