Heading over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom today?
UPDATE: All 5 attractions reopened a few hours later.
If you’re in EPCOT this morning, you may have noticed that something’s a little different.
Rides will go down around Disney World for a variety of reasons: sometimes there’s technical difficulties, or sometimes the closure is longer for a scheduled refurbishment. But today, we noticed a few rides had closed unexpectedly in EPCOT.
If you’re at Magic Kingdom today, there’s one ride you’ll have to wait to experience!
Several attractions are currently down for refurbishment (PeopleMover, we MISS you!), but others can close temporarily for other reasons. Such was the case when Seven Dwarfs Mine Train became unavailable today.
Update: We checked on this later in the day and My Disney Experience showed that all of these attractions had reopened.
Disney World might be the most magical place on earth, but rides there can experience technical difficulties at times, causing them to temporarily close.
Sometimes these closures are only for a few minutes, but other times they can last for much longer. As we walked around Magic Kingdom today, we actually found that 3 rides are ALL temporarily closed right now due to technical difficulties.
Disneyland Paris, like most other Disney parks, has had to deal with a number of changes to plans due to the global health crisis.
Earlier this year, the Parisian resort closed alongside the other international Disney parks and remained closed for several months before a reopening in July. Since then, COVID-19 cases have increased in France prompting a lockdown, and Disneyland Paris has closed temporarily again. Now, it seems that closure will extend through the holiday season.
Due to the global pandemic, Disneyland Paris (like all of the other Disney theme parks around the world) shut down earlier this year, but then reopened in July. Eventually, however, COVID-19 numbers in France began increasing again, and the country went into lockdown, forcing Disneyland Paris to close temporarily once again at the end of October.
Disneyland Paris was set to reopen on from December 19th through January 3rd, but it seems recent regulations set by the French government have caused plans at this theme park to change.
As you might have heard, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is getting some MAJOR work done right now.
The Polynesian is set to remain closed through the summer of 2021 for refurbishments in most areas of the resort, including a Moana-themed makeover to the guest rooms. As a part of this work, the monorail station at the resort is now closed.
Yesterday, we got the chance to sing along with all of our Frozen friends at the newly reopened For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
This is one of the few spots you can see the Frozen sisters these days — the others being the Frozen Promenade cavalcade and the Frozen Ever After ride, both of which are in EPCOT. If you’re headed to Disney World in early November, however, you’ll have one less spot to catch up with your pals from Arendelle.
One of the most popular attractions in Magic Kingdom experienced some technical difficulties this morning.
We’ve been keeping a close eye on the construction around Magic Kingdom lately, including work on the new TRON Lightcycle Run coaster, construction walls outside “it’s a small world”, and updates to the Magic Kingdom entrance sign. But today, there was an unexpected interruption on one of the park’s attractions.
We’ve been keeping an eye on all of the construction going on at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Various changes are set take to place around the hotel as it undergoes refurbishment and its guest rooms get a Moana-inspired makeover. As a result of the construction, the monorail station at the Polynesian will be closing temporarily later this year.
