Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom has quite a list of attractions that will not be available in March.

  • Walt Disney World Railroad – Frontierland – Temporarily Unavailable Closed for Refurbishment
  • Walt Disney World Railroad – Fantasyland – Temporarily Unavailable Closed for Refurbishment
  • Walt Disney World Railroad – Main Street, U.S.A. – Temporarily Unavailable Closed for Refurbishment

As we noted for February’s refurbishment, the Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for quite some time, since December 3, 2018, to be exact. The train is a popular option for Guests to travel around the lands of Magic Kingdom in style but has yet to reopen. The construction for TRON: Lightcycle / Run overlaps with sections of the railway, so, likely, the attraction will not open until the coaster’s construction is no longer interfering — this has not, however, been confirmed by Disney.

The Hall of Presidents is currently closed as the attraction is adding in the new President Biden animatronic, as the United States is now under a new administration. The attraction closed down on the day of the Inauguration. It seems that the attraction will take months before Guests can see the new President as it will be closed throughout March (as well as February, of course).

Mad Tea Party closes down on February 20, 2021, but will only be gone for a short while! On March 5, the attraction will be running once again, so Guests can spin with Alice and the Mad Hatter!
