If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort this November, you’ll have to come back another time to enjoy many attractions.

Walt Disney World Resort is home to many iconic attractions and experiences, like the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, “it’s a small world”, and many more, but that doesn’t mean that rides don’t have downtime.

Attractions are constantly being analyzed by Disney Cast Members when they are open and, even in “The Most Magical Place On Earth,” rides are subject to closures for construction, refurbishments, and updates.

Here’s a look at everything that will not be open in the month of November at the Disney Parks in Orlando.

It’s almost time that we can officially remove Fantasmic! from this list. While the beloved nighttime spectacular won’t be available for the first two days of November, it will make its long-awaited return to a sold-out crowd on November 3rd, just two days from now! It will have two nightly showings (8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) for its first five days and then will move to one nightly showing. The showing will take place at 8:00 p.m. from November 8th to November 16th, and then will take place at 9:00 p.m. nightly from there on out.

Voyage of The Little Mermaid

The beloved show has been closed since the pandemic and there are rumors that it will never reopen. Many believe Disney will refurbish the theater and could update the show to a number of different intellectual properties.
