Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on July 2, 2018 595 Los Angeles

Hoppin’ Good News: We’re selling tickets to the Disneyland Resort! Take a look at our discounts on Disneyland tickets, including Park Hoppers for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Ribbit!

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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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!

Planning to visit Aug. 27 and 28, 2018. Any idea what the crowds will be like? Any idea what rides will be closed for refurbishment? Thanks!

Hi DJ!

Haunted Mansion will be closed during your visit, as the ride undergoes its holiday overlay. There is a chance Space Mountain will be closed for the same reason as well, but it is currently showing operational hours on those dates. You can check out our Crowd Calendar for our best guess on how busy the parks will be!

Hoppy planning!

HI! I am looking to plan a trip and I really want The Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain to be open when I go because they were both closed when I went last year (it was September) . Would sometime between August 12th and August 18th be a safe time to go? I am hoping it would be because it says that they are closed for refurbishment starting late August not mid August. Thank you.

Hi Skye!

Disneyland shows both rides as operational during the dates of your trip. It looks like they won't be closed for the overlays until later in the month!

Any idea what the Fantasmic schedule will be like September 10-13? I tried reserving our dining package this morning and it says NOT AVAILABLE. Is it on a limited schedule in the "off-season"?

Reply
Jul 12, 2018 at 9:55 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Traci!

This is likely due to the Halloween Party, which is a separately-ticketed event on select nights and alters the usual entertainment schedule. However, this doesn't take place every night, so be sure to try for various days during your trip.

Hoppy planning!

Space Mountain usually closes late August for holiday overlay installation and definitely reopens September 7 ... then closes early November for holiday overlay removal. We don't have specific dates for this yet, but we'll let you know when we do!

I am an AP and have made friends with several CMs. They are saying they have been told it is going to be much later in fall for the reopening of the Matterhorn, probably not until end of October/November. They could easily be wrong, but I have a feeling personally the ride is going to be out of commission for awhile :-/ No idea why, it was just closed for over six months just three years ago.

Hi, First let me comment on how informative and convenient your site is , thank you ???? We are planning a family trip early in September. I have two questions if you can advise . 1) Is Friday September 7 Th the official start of Halloween ? Aka will the be decorations in all areas? 2) we have a 3 year old do you think with all the closures and an overall lesser amount of young children’s rides Is California adventure worth going in September?

Thank you for your time and efforts you have a wonderful and extremely helpful site .

Hi Kimberly,

Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain usually close sometime late August and reopen early to mid-September to install their holiday overlays. Other than those two rides, we aren't yet for sure on what will be closed in September! There's always something to do at Disneyland Resort, though, and you'll have the new Pixar Pier to hop to at Disney California Adventure, so no worries on running out of rides and attractions to experience!

The only construction I’ve seen recently is near the Disneyland hotel but shouldn’t affect it. The Pinocchio parking lot is under construction to become another parking structure and part of that is across the street from the hotel. Also, sometime in the sure when), the area of downtown Disney closest to the Disneyland hotel will be undergoing construction to become a hotel. But nothing I’ve seen affects the hotel itself or reasons not to stay there

I know that Matterhorn was closed during this period, but it didn’t look like the Matterhorn ride. It looked like a bigger, different mountain ride. What exactly was I seeing?

Hi there!

The Disneyland site is currently showing that Pirates will not be operating on May 12. World of Color is under refurbishment until late June.

Keep hopping!

Hi there. We are planning to go to the park the first week of May but are pretty bummed to hear that pirates will be closed starting the 23rd of April. Any ideas how long? We may cancel our trip as this is our favorite ride. Thanks.

Hi Lauren!

Right now, the Disneyland site is showing that Pirates will be closed for refurbishment until at least late May.

The Disney calendar has rides in Toon Town closed in May. I can't find anything else one why it would be closed. Has there been any information on why its closed? Is it due to Star Wars Land?

Hi Liz!

We welcome the Frog Pond to chime in, as we're not quite sure, but our guess is that it is closed for general maintenance and refurbishment.

We are going to Disneyland beginning June 11...I haven’t seen any updates for Dining either the princesses with Ariel’s grotto being closed. Are you aware if they have relocated them somewhere else?

Hi Michelle!

Disneyland hasn't yet announced whether or not a new princess dining experience will be replacing Ariel's Grotto. Unfortunately, we think it's safe to assume that there will not be one available in time for your June trip. We recommend dining at Goofy's Kitchen for a fun character experience instead!

It looks like toontown is going to be closed (or at least all the rides) in May. Any clue why since I can't find anything else online. Is it due to Star Wars Land? Is toontown going to be completely closed?

Hi Liz,

We aren't sure exactly why rides in Toon Town would be closed in May. As soon as we know the official closing dates, we'll be sure to update this post!

Keep hopping!

Looking at the Disneyland schedule I see that Fantasmic is only showing on the weekends....when will it show daily? We are going June 11-14.

Hi Lupe,

We aren't quite sure yet. This might have to do with Pixar Fest and the new nighttime fireworks show. Keep checking the schedule!

Hey I was wondering something about the Pirates refurbishment. We are going on the second week of May, will it be open by that time? I heard the Florida refurbishment only took two weeks so I’m hopeful that Disneyland will get the refurbishment done fast .

Hi Alex!

The Florida refurbishment was done in a jiffy, so be sure to check upon your arrival - however, Disneyland's site doesn't show any operating hours for May so far.

Hoppy planning!

Mommy Frog
