With the 50th Anniversary of Disney World going on right now, there are a LOT of changes happening in the parks! New attractions like TRON: Lightcycle Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are on the way, but there are also plenty of big refurbishments going on too.
Today, another refurbishment starts in Magic Kingdom, but don’t worry — it’s just a short one!
Disney has had some major events take place recently, including the holidays, Disney+ Day, and the start of 50th Anniversary celebrations in Disney World.
There’s another big day coming up very soon! January 10th is going to bring some MAJOR changes to the Disney parks, including ride closures, transportation changes, and new snacks. Here are ALL of the things that will be changing on that day.
When you’re visiting Disney World, you’re bound to run into a construction project or two. That’s why we keep you up to date with the latest progress here at DFB!
And, this week, we spotted a lot of progress on a major upcoming attraction in Magic Kingdom, more painting both inside and outside of the parks, and even saw one construction project wrap up in EPCOT. So, let’s take a look!
Disney has announced that they will be re-theming an attraction in both Disney World AND Disneyland — Splash Mountain.
So far, there has been NO official word on when the Splash Mountain refurbishment might begin. Instead, the ride has continued to operate as normal, with no changes to the scenes or signs of work being done just yet. So, we’re pulling together everything that we know for ya, to see just when the Splash Mountain retheming might begin!
It’s kind of a weird time for Disney World right now.
As you can imagine there are LOTS of upcoming offerings that we’re excited about, from attractions to restaurants and everything in between. At the same time, we haven’t had any big NEW announcements in a while. So, there’s only so much we know about the next few years in Disney World. What can we expect for the years to come?
You’ve heard the big news about Splash Mountain, right? Earlier this year, it was announced that this iconic attraction would be undergoing a retheme into a Princess and the Frog-inspired attraction.
Disney has been gearing up for this change already with restocks of the suddenly-high-demand Splash Mountain merch and the removal of “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” from the background music in Disneyland. Now, it looks like Disney might have taken one more step towards the closure of the current version of Splash Mountain.
We’re in Magic Kingdom today for the Annual Passholder preview of the reopening!
One of our BIGGEST questions has been how long wait times will be in Magic Kingdom. Well, we’re working on figuring it out; some lines are definitely LONG. You might think the longest line in Magic Kingdom today would be Splash Mountain (after all it IS going to get reimagined). You’re close, but there’s actually a MUCH longer wait for something else.
