Current and Upcoming Closures and Openings for Walt Disney World

This is a centralized list of attractions and dining venues that are currently closed or are scheduled to be closed temporarily for refurbishment. We also list here attractions and dining venues that will soon close permanently or that have recently closed for good.

Although we make an effort to keep the information on this page accurate, refurbishment details are very much subject to change at Disney's whim, and in some cases we insert guesses because Disney has not yet released details. You may use this information for planning, but do not be surprised if it changes as your travel dates approach.
