In 2022, Disneyland Paris is planning on performing refurbishment work on several attractions. In fact, we recently reported that ten different rides and attractions will be closing in the new year at the theme park.

And just yesterday, Guests said goodbye to one of the popular coasters at Disneyland Paris as the refurbishment work is officially underway.

Crush’s Coaster at Disneyland Paris is a fan-favorite family-friendly coaster at Disneyland Paris which takes Guests into the story of Disney Pixar’s Finding Nemo as they join Crush and other friends on an underwater journey. Disneyland Paris describes the ride as:

Join Crush and friends in Toon Studio®, where you’ll find the beached soundstage and set of the Disney•Pixar film, Finding Nemo. Then, after taking in the Sydney Harbour scenery, board a turtle shell and prepare for a ride through memorable moments from the movie.

Sit tight, as your shell dives into the ocean and begins its incredible journey. At first Nemo, Squirt and other familiar faces greet you in the Great Barrier Reef. But the serenity doesn’t last for long, as you’re sent plunging to the deepest darkest depths, where a sunken submarine sits surrounded by voracious glowfish, jellyfish and sharks. At Crush’s Coaster danger lurks. However, just in the nick of time, the strong East Australian Current churns you up and sends you spiralling back to Sydney Harbour to a rousing reception.

However, if you are planning a visit to Disneyland Paris, you should know that Crush’s Coaster is now officially closed for a lengthy refurbishment. The ride closed today and will remain closed through February 4, 2022.

This is just the first of many scheduled attraction closures for 2022. Others include “it’s a small world”, Casey Jr., Big Thunder Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
