Kali River Rapids Closing for Refurbishment in January

Ride closures at Disney World are common, and one of the most popular attractions in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Kali River Rapids, is closing for a long refurbishment starting on January 8, 2024.

During the slower periods of the year, it’s typical for Disney World to close down some of its attractions for regular maintenance. This holds particularly true for cold-season water attractions.

If it has to close, then I’m happy it’s during this period when the weather is a bit cooler anyway and not in July when it feels great to get soaked!

At this time Disney has not announced a specific reopening date, but Kali River Rapids will likely get a multi-month refurbishment just like it gets every year.

Up to this point, there is no word of the Kali River Rapids refurbishment being anything more than normal maintenance. We’ll keep you posted if the reopening is delayed any longer.

These types of refurbishments are normal in Walt Disney World during this time of year.
