Sometimes, construction will take place in Disney World for some reason or another.
This can be caused by maintenance or refurbishment — and you’ll want to keep an eye out for any closures during your trip! So today, we’re bringing you our weekly refurbishment update for May 31st-June 6th, 2021.
Magic Kingdom Refurbishments
Hall of Presidents
Disney hasn’t announced when this show will reopen, but we’ll let you know when they do!
Walt Disney World Railroad
Meanwhile, the Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for over 2 YEARS. Disney hasn’t made it super clear what’s goin’ on, but we do know that construction on TRON: Lightcycle Run is blocking the Railroad’s path around the park.
Now, TRON construction has likely been delayed, so there’s really no telling when we’ll get to ride the Railroad again. Disney hasn’t announced a reopening date, either! But of course, we’ll keep ya in the loop as we learn more.
Main Street Confectionery
Our last Magic Kingdom construction project is happening over at Main Street Confectionery, which recently closed for a pretty long refurb! Most recently, we’ve seen construction walls pop up around the shop, indicating that work is underway.
Surprise — Disney hasn’t announced a reopening date for this, either! But in the meantime, you can grab all of your Confectionery favorites at Main Street Cinema — that’s your temporary stop for candy on Main Street, U.S.A.! And keep in mind that a few doors down, The Chapeau is closed, too.
Disney World Resort Refurbishments
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
We’re hoppin’ over to some hotels! A HUGE project is underway at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, where the main entrance, lobby, and monorail station are being refurbed.
These reimagined rooms are available for stays beginning July 19th. The rest of the construction should be done this summer, too!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Lastly, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, the Main Tower Guests Rooms are undergoing refurbishment. Construction is noisy, but other than that, visitors shouldn’t be too affected by this project. We were able to confirm with a Cast Member that all the work should wrap up by the end of September.
Well, that wraps up this week’s refurbishment update! We’ll keep ya in the loop with all the latest Disney news, so stay tuned to DFB!
