However, sometimes downtime does occur due to mechanical issues and general maintenance.

It is worth noting that there is not inclement weather in the Orlando area today, so these closures are not weather-related.

The official description of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh reads:

Be swept away by a gust of wind with Gopher, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo before sliding inside Owl’s House. Bob up and down with Tigger during a hide-and-seek adventure. Enter a dream world where singing Heffalumps and Woozles spring up and down.

It’s a delightful romp through scenes and songs scenes made famous in the classic Disney film Winnie the Pooh.

Before saying goodbye to your new friends, celebrate with Pooh as he finally gets his paws on what he’s been searching for.

The official description of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad reads:

Legend has it that soon after gold was first discovered here in the 1850s, eerie things began to happen. Trains would take off and race through tunnels—by themselves.

After you arrive at the legendary Big Thunder Mining Company, descend into an abandoned mine shaft and board your train. As you enter the cursed cavern, the engine speeds up along the rickety track. Dodge exploding dynamite and falling boulders as you swoop around turns, drop into canyons and dart through the mysterious ghost town of Tumbleweed.

Your rip-roaring adventure proves that some legends are true. You’re sure to have a real blast!
