Disney World currently has a few refurbishments goin’ on!
These lead to rides, restaurants, and hotels temporarily closing, and those closures are constantly changing. Of course, you’ll want to know how all of this will affect your vacation! So today, we’re bringing you our weekly refurbishment update for May 17th through May 23rd.
Magic Kingdom Refurbishments
Hall of Presidents
The Hall of Presidents has been closed since January to install an animatronic for President Joe Biden. It’s nothing too exciting — this refurb happens whenever a new U.S. President is elected! It’s all part of keeping the attraction up to date.
Disney hasn’t yet announced when the show is supposed to reopen, but we’ll let you know when they do!
Walt Disney World Railroad
As you may be able to guess, that path will have to be cleared before we can hop aboard the Railroad again…and that could take awhile! TRON construction has likely been delayed, so it could be some time before we see progress. We’ll keep an eye out for any updates!
Main Street Confectionery
Our last Magic Kingdom refurb is over on Main Street, U.S.A., where Main Street Confectionery has shut down for some pretty major construction! The space will be closed for a while — and Disney has not given a reopening date — but it won’t be until after July 24th (at the earliest). That’s as far out as Disney’s refurbishment calendar currently goes!
If you’re looking for sweet treats in the meantime, head on over to Main Street Cinema. They’ve got all of the Confectionery’s goodies there! And remember: The Chapeau is closed on Main Street, U.S.A., too!
Disney World Resort Refurbishments
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Okay, let’s hop on over to some hotels! At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, we’re seeing BIG changes, like refurbishments to the main entrance, lobby, and monorail station.
You’re currently able to make reservations for these reimagined rooms for stays from July 19th onward! The other work around the hotel should wrap up around that time, too.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Disney’s Contemporary Resort is undergoing some changes, too! The Main Tower Guest Rooms are being refurbished — so just keep in mind if you’re looking to stay here! The rest of the resort amenities are unaffected, but The Wave restaurant will be closing down for a pretty lengthy refurbishment in July.
You’ll also want to know that construction is currently VERY loud. You’ll notice it even if you’re just traveling through on the Monorail! When we spoke to a Cast Member, though, they confirmed that the work is due to wrap up at the end of September.
Well, that wraps up this week’s refurbishment update! We’ll be back with plenty more Disney news, so stay tuned to DFB.
