Even though it’s been about nine months since Disney World reopened, there are still lots of things around the resort that have remained closed.
Between the rides, restaurants, and resorts, there are a lot of locations that have yet to welcome guests again. Here’s a quick look at everything that still hasn’t opened in Disney World.
Between the parks and resorts, tons of restaurants remain closed. And surprisingly, some of them are serious fan-favorite spots! These are the places where you still can’t dine in the parks:

Disney Resorts have gradually made a comeback. Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort recently reopened, and the reopening of Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club Resort, and Polynesian Village Resort is on the horizon. However, there are a few resorts that still don’t have a set reopening date.

Of course, we’ll be on the lookout for any developments about the reopening of these hotels!
Sadly, there are a few iconic rides that we haven’t been able to experience in over a year now.
- Walt Disney World Railroad (it’s been more than 2 years!)
- Enchanted Tales With Belle
- Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
- Turtle Talk With Crush
We sure hope we’re able to take a spin on these rides again soon.
Lots of entertainment has been suspended around Walt Disney World since its reopening, like character meet-and-greets, fireworks shows, and parades. There are also some popular shows that have paused performances over the last year.
- Beauty & The Beast Live On Stage
- Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular
- Voyage of the Little Mermaid
- Festival of the Lion King (coming back this summer!!!)
- Finding Nemo the Musical
- Up! A Great Bird Adventure
Blizzard Beach water park reopened not too long ago, but Typhoon Lagoon doesn’t have a reopening date yet.
For all of your water park needs, be sure to stop by Blizzard Beach.
