If you are planning on going to any Disney Park, it is always important to know what the refurbishment schedule will be during your time there. Many Guests often do not check what rides will be closed down during their visit, as many expect that all rides will be working. This lack of knowledge can then lead to complete and utter disappointment if the ride you wanted to go on was closed, and you had no idea.

For example, at the moment, Expedition Everest is closed at Walt Disney World. The ride is very popular but will be under refurbishment until May 2022 at the earliest. Although the closure is reported on the My Disney Experience app and the refurbishment calendar, I have seen many families go to the attraction and walk away with sadness after a Cast Member tells them what is going on.

As we have previously noted, Tokyo Disney Resort recently made an effort towards inclusivity at its Parks when the Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights made its return to the Park with a new welcome message that removes all gendered language. The parade’s triumphant return saw the Disney magic spread across the lands and around Cinderella Castle in the nighttime show. The theme park Resort currently has a COVID-19 passport mandate active for Guests and Cast Members. At the moment, Hong Kong Disneyland has extended its closure again due to the ongoing coronavirus.
