Rehabs and Closures

From time to time Disney will need to perform updates to their attractions, stores, resorts and restaurants. Since the parks never shut, most of this maintenance work takes place overnight. However in situations where a larger refurbishment is needed, they may close select areas for a period of time. It's advisable you check which locations will be closed before booking your vacation to avoid disapointment. 

Whilst every effort is made, it's not always possible to know exact closure dates, and emergency closures can occur at any time without notice. The list of rehabs below are provided for information purposes only and may be subject to change without notice.
