2017 Walt Disney World Closures and Refurbishments

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
Article Updated March 23rd, 2017

It’s always good to know what is going to be closed during your trip to Walt Disney World (so bookmark this page!). This page is a list of attractions and dining venues that are currently closed or are scheduled to be closed temporarily for refurbishment.

There is nothing worse than arriving for your Disney vacation and finding out that your favorite attraction is temporarily closed! Before I plan any trip to the parks, I always check the attraction closure to make sure that my Disney must dos are open. Additionally, I like to order Disney’s FREE vacation planning videos to get an idea of what to expect. Alternatively, you could check out our list of what’s new at Disney World.

It’s important to also note that not all attractions closures are planned in advanced. Sometimes things happen and Disney closes an attraction unexpectedly.
