Sometimes, we’ll see closures around Disney World.
These can be caused by maintenance or refurbishment — and if you’re heading into the parks, you’ll want to know what projects are goin’ on! So today, we’re bringing you our weekly refurbishment update for June 21st-27th, 2021.
Magic Kingdom Refurbishments
Hall of Presidents
Disney hasn’t announced an opening timeline just yet, but we’ll let you know when they do!
Walt Disney World Railroad
So when could we see this fan-favorite train return? Well, TRON construction has likely been delayed, so there’s no way of knowing for sure. But we’ll keep ya posted with any updates!
Main Street Confectionery
Our last stop in Magic Kingdom is on Main Street, U.S.A., where Main Street Confectionery is closed for a BIG refurb. Construction walls are up, which means this is serious business, folks. But never fear: throughout the closure you’ll be able to snag all your favorite sweet treats at Main Street Cinema.
Disney hasn’t announced when this shop will reopen, but we’ll keep a lookout for any updates! And if you’re visiting this section of the park, you’ll wanna keep in mind that The Chapeau is currently closed, too.
Disney World Resort Refurbishments
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Onto some hotels! We’re kicking things off at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, where a HUGE transformation is taking place. A resort-wide reimagining means we’re getting changes to the main entrance, lobby, and monorail station. At this time, the monorail station is closed.
You’ll be able to stay in these refurbished rooms beginning July 19th (and you can book your reservation now!). The rest of the construction will finish up this summer as well — and one of our FAVORITE restaurants, ‘Ohana, is reopening on July 9th!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
We’re wrappin’ things up at Disney’s Contemporary Resort! Over here, the Main Tower Guest Rooms are being refurbished. These are (naturally) unavailable for booking, but the rest of the hotel’s amenities are business as usual. We spoke with a Cast Member who confirmed that the project should wrap up by the end of September.
Just somethin’ to note, friends!
And that wraps up this week’s refurbishment update! We’ll continue to keep ya in the loop with all the latest Disney news, so stay tuned to DFB.
