When Guests enter the Walt Disney World Resort, they are completely immersed in the magic of all things Disney. However, in order to keep the magic alive, Disney needs to routinely shut down some attractions in order to refurbish them, sprinkle them with pixie dust, and make sure that they are running as efficiently and safely as possible.
Here is what rides and attractions will be closed for refurbishment during the month of September.
- 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
- Main Street Confectionery – Closed For Refurbishment
The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for months as Disney continues to make progress on the new TRON roller coaster being built in Tomorrowland. The Railroad runs right near the construction area, so the Railroad will most likely remain closed until TRON is about to open for Guests.
TRON Lightcycle/Run was originally scheduled to open by October 1, 2021 — when Disney World kicks off its 50 Anniversary celebration. However, the pandemic forced work on the project to stop and the opening was delayed. An opening date for TRON has still not been announced at this time.
The Main Street Confectionery has also been closed for months as it undergoes an extensive refurbishment. The shop closed in late March and no opening date has been announced for the popular Main Street U.S.A. sweet shop.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
Typhoon Lagoon is a popular water park at Disney World that has been closed since the theme parks reopened last summer. Aerial photos have shown the water park looking desolate and abandoned. However, things could be looking up for the water park, and new permits have been filed that could signal the Typhoon Lagoon may be opening sometime soon.
Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom
At the time of publication, no refurbishments are listed for EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios. However, it is important to remember that just because nothing is listed, that does not mean rides will be available at all times. Anything can happen at the Parks at any time, thunderstorms are common, and rides can shut down unexpectedly.
As always, Guests should be sure to check the Walt Disney World Resort Calendar before their trip for the most up-to-date information about ride and attraction closures at all four Disney theme parks, as well as Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.
