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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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.
Side note: It's no secret Disneyland Resort is going through some major changes! Disney California Adventure Park is transforming Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier. The reimagined pier will celebrate favorite Pixar stories with newly themed attractions (including the incredible Incredicoaster) and officially opens on June 23, 2018. With that, there are some major ride closures in the mean time. Don't fret! There is still plenty to do and see at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with Paradise Pier being mainly the affected area. And in a few months time, we'll have a hopping new pier to celebrate!
