If you are planning on visiting Disney World, it is important to always keep an eye on your My Disney Experience app, as an attraction can close at any time. When a ride closes, it will show that on your app, which can prevent you from walking across a Disney World Park, only to be told that you cannot ride the attraction at the moment.
When an attraction temporarily closes, the positive thing is that typically, the ride will reopen shortly. If the ride is not scheduled for a refurbishment, this means that the ride is not meant to be closed all day long, and Disney likely needs to perform some maintenance on the attraction without Guests aboard.
Of course, bigger issues can occur and cause prolonged closures; however, this is not the norm for temporary closures. This morning seems to have been a day filled with temporary closures at Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT with seven attractions shutting down within three hours before noon!
As we can see from WDW Stats (@WdwStats), the following attractions have all shut down before 12:00 p.m. at Disney World.
- Kilimanjaro Safaris
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
- Mad Tea Party
- Jungle Cruise
- Frozen Ever After
- The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
Since noon, we have seen another six attractions shut down all across Disney World, just within the hour! From this, we can clearly see that attraction closures are widespread at Disney World. We have even counted up to 32 attractions closing just within a single day in the past.
As of the publishing of this article, all of the above attractions listed have reopened for Guests to enjoy!
