Of course, if you visit any Disney Park around the world, whether that be Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris Resort, and more, it is always possible for rides to unexpectedly break down. When this does happen, Disney is often able to maintain the ride so that it is up and running shortly after. But, there are times when rides could be closed for days, weeks, and even months! These closures are usually expected and are listed on the refurbishment calendar of each Disney Park’s site.

At Tokyo Disney, Guests have the option to see what is being refurbished months in advance, which is very helpful for those looking to plan a trip. If you are ever looking to access that section of the Tokyo Disney site, you can do so by clicking here.

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.
