2023-2024 Disney World Refurbishments & Ride Closures

Nothing is worse than spending hours upon hours planning your trip to Walt Disney World, only to find out your favorite attraction is under refurbishment.

That’s why we created this 2023 & 2024 Disney World Refurbishments and Closure schedule, which will help you know what’s open and what’s closed.

In this story, we'll cover Walt Disney World's 4 theme parks—Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. We'll share the refurbishment schedule and list closed rides in each park.
