Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on December 11, 2017 245 Los Angeles

As you get ready to plan your Disneyland trip, it's helpful to know which rides, restaurants and attractions may be closed or undergoing refurbishment during your visit. Here is the list of scheduled Disneyland refurbishments and permanent ride closings. Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually. All of these refurbishments and closings are subject to change without notice.

We have our trip booked for Jan 29-Feb 9. They just released last week that splash mountain closes on January 2nd....how long does it usually stay closed for? Our kids are now big enough to ride it and that is one ride they were especially looking forward to as they’ve never been on it ....so we are REALLY hoping it opens the first week of February or earlier

As of today, I'm looking at the January 7 through January 12 Disneyland calendar online, and seeing no shows and no parades at all. Does that calendar ever change after posting? Also, it shows no fireworks for January 7, which surprised me because I thought that was still considered the end of the holiday season. I knew it was going to be a quiet time, but this seems ridiculous. Any thoughts or hope would be appreciated.

I am also planning a trip end of Jan, early Feb. I think it's ridiculous that Disney doesn't release the schedule sooner. Guaranteed they already know the schedule and have known for months if not longer. It makes it so hard to plan a trip. I can't book hotel reservations until I've 100% confirmed the schedule. Pirates is the one ride that is my deal breaker. If it's not running, I don't go, no exceptions.

Disney needs to open a new report/park near Leggoland. There are too many people coming up from south of Orange County to attend the park. Our family has pretty much given up on Disneyland. It's always too crowded. We refuse to pay $100's to stand in long lines, behind obese, tatted-up, trashers. Used to be a nice park, but now the LCDs have lowered the culture. Things are sooo expensive in CA. I just don't understand how people can afford maintaining a lifestyle of getting both child-art tats and going to Disneyland?! Must be my supportive tax dollars at work.

I am fairly certain that most and/or all attractions at Disneyland should be "up and running" during Presidents Day Weekend, as well as during the following week...I also am fairly certain that most and/or all attractions at Disneyland should be "up and running" during Spring Break Season...What I am not certain about is whether most and/or all attractions should be "up and running" during the week-or-so that is "sandwiched" in-between those 2 VERY busy times...My guess is probably they are, since there is not very much time to completely shut things down to do "proper" repairs, but then again, I have not been to Disneyland at that time of the year in AGES and it seems as if the park management has made MANY changes to the way they handle refurbishments...if anybody can shed some light on this issue for me, please reply!!!

Hello. We are going to Disneyland in July. Do you have any more specificity regarding the closures than "Summer 2017"? We are interested in Tom Sawyer Island, the Disneyland Railroad, and Fantasmic. Does "Summer" usually mean by the first day of summer, or anytime during the summer season?

Thank you!

Just saw that Indiana Jones is going to be down for refurb starting May 1. I can't find any information on it online. Is this supposed to just be something short and fast or down for the long haul? Do you know anything about it? May is usually a weird month to start a refurb.

Thanks so much for getting back to us. We have been tracking wait times for Disneyland and California adventure - mostly because we are excited for our family vacation next week - and just noticed golden zephyr always seemed closed. It's one of our favorites because everyone likes it (with six kids that can be hard to do sometimes). We are really going Matterhorn will only be closed for a few days since we go the 9-11, but I don't know how good our odds are with that. Oh well, you win some and lose some. Thanks again!

Based on Disneyland's website, it seems the Haunted Mansion will be closed Jan. 9-19 for the holiday overlay removal. "it's a small world" looks like it will be closed Jan. 22-Feb. 2. These dates could possibly change. We'll update as soon as we know!

Hi there! We are trying to plan a special trip with my daughter and her bestie to Disneyland, before they head off to different schools for high school. Does anyone happen to know how far in advance scheduled closures are listed? We have some flexibility and are trying to decide between late January or February, so I'd like to plan when there are the least expected closures. Our friend has never been, so we want to make sure she gets to go on as many of the "famous" rides as possible. Someone told me that January tends to be "refurbishment month," and that It's a Small World, Pirates, Haunted House, and Soarin are all often closed that month, so now I'm nervous! Any input would be so appreciated! :)

When I was there recently aside from the listed closures many rides close temporarily for the day. Kind of makes going a waste or time and money. Lots of money to pay just to shop and be pushed around. The haunted mansion was closed when it was time to use our Fastpass. Mermaid ride was closed on and off all day, Same with Snow White. Frozen times for Tuesday on the printed schedule they giv you are wrong, plus there was not a FastPass for that even though it was stated there was.Walked all the way to get the FastPass only to be told to show up 45 minutes before the show and hope to get it......Total waste of money at Disneyland and CA until the attractions open up.

I am taking my 2 children - ages 6 & 9 - to Disneyland for their first time. I grew up in Southern California so went frequently, but I can see that Disneyland is a whole different ballgame than when I used to go. My parents are coming with us (we will be 3 adults & 2 children) and have offered to pay for one night at a Disney hotel so that we can get early entrance to a park. I am trying to decide the best arrangement so that we can spend time at Disneyland, Ca Adventure, and I know the boys will want to play at the hotel (especially water slide if the weather is warm enough). We will be going the first week of November, likely arriving Monday 11/7 at the park, driving from north county San Diego (approx 1.5 hours depending on traffic). With this plan, we'd go straight to Ca Adventure park and spend the day there so that on Tues we could take advantage of magic hour for Disneyland. My question is are there cool things to do in Ca Adventure at night, as we won't be able to stay until close at Disneyland on Tuesday. Should we spring for park hopper tickets and spend Monday evening at Disneyland? Do you have any other ideas for how to maximize fun and minimize lines & exhaustion? My brother-in-law said we should spend 2 nights at the hotel and 2 days in the parks (as opposed to 1 night/2 days), but I am not sure that is in the budget. Thanks!

Hi Rebecca,

Be sure to catch World of Color in DCA. We love the way Cars Land lights up at night and there is plenty to see and do. We use single rider lines and FastPasses. If you are too late to get tickets to Frozen Live, hop in the stand-by line about an hour before the show. The parks close early both those nights (at 8 and 9 p.m. both nights), so that means no nighttime entertainment/fireworks at Disneyland.

Going to Disneyland Nov 12-14. The Disneyland website shows Haunted Mansion and Its a Small World as "schedule unavailable." Are these rides closed? We were so looking forward to them changing for the holiday theme.

Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian,

Sorry for the delay, but these rides are open even if their schedules are not.

when I look at the calendar at https://disneyland.disney.go.com/calendars/month/2015-12-01/ it is not showing any open hours from 15 December on, is that right?

Arrive from Australia on the 19th and kids would be devastated!

How soon will they post refurbishments for January 2016? I am planning a trip for my kids but don't want to book a hotel until I know for sure that certain rides are open. ;) We only visit Disneyland once every couple years so I want to make sure my kids can enjoy the rides they weren't able to last time. But now they are finally tall enough :)

Hopefully soon! We check refurbs weekly, so we'll post them as soon as they are available.

Anyone going to the magical kingdom has to go check out "Trader Sams". It's a little tiny bar/restaurant by downtown Disney.

I cant believe they will close the haunted mansion around a busy time like the disney half marathon..i was so excited to be able to finally see the hat box ghost and now we wont be able too..one of my favorite rides...very dissapointed..is this for the overhaul they do???

Hi Donna,

So sorry to hear that you will miss it. The closure is so that Haunted Mansion can be transformed into the Nightmare Before Christmas.

Do you think they will leave the hat box ghost in after they do the "christmas" overhall? I would think so, but not 100% sure.

Booked from apr 27 to May 1

Is there any chance any of these refurbs finish early? Indiana Jones is scheduled to finish May 1...re-open May 2.....Never been on that one.

Does early ever happen? Or is all hope lost?

Went last year mid May and Pirates of the the Caribbean was closed. We have another trip planned mid May this year and wondering if anyone knows if Pirates of the Caribbean should be open. It's our favorite ride so really hoping it's open this time!

If you go to disney.com they will show you now till mid May all the closures and events. Go to the park hours and look under 5 day view at the days you will be there. Scroll all the way down to the bottom, and you will see all the rides currently scheduled for refurbishment! It looks like Pirates should be open!!!! Enjoy your trip!

How far in advance are refurbs posted? We are planning trip end of Oct. 2015. I'm hoping with all going on early for diamond celebration that there will be very little refurb during our visit?

Most refurbs seem to happen in September transferring out of the peak summer season and into the holday season. October will be nice with the Halloween overlay and Nightmare Before Christmas themes being added to the Haunted Mansion. Pirates has been closed recently for a touch up but should be open before Oct 1st.

One thing I didn't realize before we went Jan 29-Jan 31st of 2015 was that the castle would be covered and you wouldn't be able to see it. That was the biggest bummer even though I knew it was going to be "closed" before we decided to go. Getting details as to why it was hidden from sight just made me want to come back later this year. They are getting ready to celebrate the 60th anniversary and they are glittering up the castle. Lots of exciting things are coming for the celebration. Sad now that we won't get to see all that exciting stuff.

Thanks so much for this! As a new (out of state) annual passholder, and having been a handful of times the past few years, I'm curious of one thing: how good are they at keeping to the schedule? If I plan a trip for late April or early May, do you think I can count on Critter Country being re-opened? A few years ago, I was expecting Thunder Mountain to be reopened when I went in December but it was delayed much beyond that. Thanks for any advice!

Hi Kristyn,

It is possible for refurbishments to be delayed, although most stay within schedule. Usually any delay isn't too far past the original date.

Keep hoppin'!

Hi Paul,

Sometimes refurbs get moved all together, or refurb plans are scrapped, but usually if it is scheduled for rehab, it opens back when expected.

The park"s board of directors should consider CLOSING COMPLETELY (for 3 weeks) Re-open Octoberfest..Halloween or Thanksgiving week.

Or discount the entry fee...allow everyone attending to participate in the experience of what happens in "refurbish" as a new attraction. Meals and Hardhats included

Thunder mountain railroad has to undergo the tests due to California laws. However, they permanently closed the area behind it because this is where starters land is going.
