Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on October 18, 2021 932 Los Angeles

As you get ready to plan your Disneyland trip, it's helpful to know which rides and experiences 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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures and seasonal closures take place annually.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. Don't fret! There is still plenty to do and see at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.

You can find out all about what to expect as Disneyland opens its gates once more in our full reopening guide. Interested in what's currently open now that Disneyland has reopened? Hop here. Upon reopening, while park hopping is available, other services such as Magic Morning are unavailable. Likewise, some entertainment, parades and character meet and greets are temporarily unavailable — though "Mickey's Mix Magic" returned July 4, 2021! While some attractions are undergoing true refurbishments at this time, others may be unavailable as a precaution for the health and safety of guests and cast members. The hoppy news? Several attractions were refurbished during the closure and have made their big debut, including Snow White's Enchanted Wish (formerly Snow White's Scary Adventures), Haunted Mansion and King Arthur Carrousel!

I have a trip planned Jan16-20,2022. Do you know what rides will be closed at the time? Also, what is the weather like there in January?

Reply
Oct 18, 2021 at 5:26 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sherry!

The holiday overlays for Haunted Mansion and "it's a small world" usually come down a few weeks after Holiday Time ends (which is Jan. 9 this year). In the past, Haunted Mansion has been first and then "it's a small world," one at a time. Exact dates have not been confirmed yet. Other rides could come down for smaller refurbs but nothing has been announced yet. Grizzly River Run sometimes gets refurbished during the winter. As for the weather, it varies in January. You can typically expect an average high of high-60s to low-70s and an average low in the 50s, but it can get as low as the 40s and as high as the 80s. Rain is possible, but it depends, as it can rain at night but stay clear in the day. We recommend dressing in layers and if the weather calls for rain, bring a poncho or umbrella.

Hello,

Do you by chance know why Luigi's car ride and Mater's ride have been closed the past month? I didn't see them on the closure list and my app says they are closed. Also, Haunted Mansion has been closed the past few days, do you know why?

Hi Taryn!

The rides are open as Haunted Mansion Holiday, Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween and Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree! Their normal versions are not running right now, but their holiday overlays are in place. :)

Hi Cherra!

Disneyland does not have Hall of Presidents, but it does have The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. We love both resorts, but there are some differences between the two! Some attractions are only at Disneyland while others, such as Hall of Presidents, are only at Disney World. Check out more of those differences in our Disney World versus Disneyland post!

Good morning, mouseketeers! Are any of the rides closed the first week of November due to decorating for Christmas? Debating on booking October 25th-28th vs November 1st-4th. Any suggestions? Husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.

Hi Cherra!

Disneyland has not officially announced dates yet for holiday overlay closures, but we can see that "it's a small world" starts showing no operating times, beginning Oct. 25. That's as far as the calendar goes, so we think it's safe to say that "it's a small world" will be closed from Oct. 25 through Nov. 11, reopening for the first Disney Merriest Nites party that night and Holiday Time the next day. As for choosing between your two options, October 25-28 will still have Halloween Time, which is a lot of fun but will be busier than Nov. 1-4 (which is generally a quieter time with Halloween decor going down and Christmas decor starting to pop up). Hope this helps!

Hi Dari!

Disneyland releases park hours in batches (about six weeks at a time) so we'd check back in a couple weeks or so! As for the "it's a small world" holiday overlay, Disneyland hasn't announced the dates for the closure just yet, but usually, the dates will show up on its ride page. We'll also update this Refurbishments post once we find out, so stay tuned!

Hi Jackie!

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is currently under refurbishment, and it does not have a scheduled date for reopening yet (we'll update this post when we find out, but it should be sometime in fall 2021). At this time, there are no refurbishments scheduled for the Matterhorn Bobsleds, Jungle Cruise or Space Mountain. We anticipate that they would be open (especially the Matterhorn Bobsleds since it was recently refurbished), but Jungle Cruise and Space Mountain could close for holiday overlay installation/removal, so ride schedules are subject to change. We'd check back as it gets closer to your trip to confirm!

Hi there!

Haunted Mansion is closing early this year since Disney moved the start of Halloween Time to the beginning of September. It will be closed for overlay refurbishment, starting Aug. 16 to Sept. 2. The other overlays that have been announced (Cars Land rides & Guardians of the Galaxy) do not close for an extended time because their overlays are lighting, sound or digital.

We were there a couple of years ago and they closed Adventureland for a corporate event, and at closing time we were all escorted out of the park and prohibited from shopping on main street. We had counted on shopping and were not allowed. Is there a way to find out if the park what an event scheduled where they will do something similar? We are planning on visiting at the end of Feb 2020. Thanks!

Reply
Feb 4, 2020 at 8:43 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Josh!

We can imagine what a bummer that was! The good news is that that is a rare occasion. They usually post park hours on the Disneyland site 6 weeks in advance. When Disneyland closed early for an event in June 2019, the park made an announcement that guests would receive bonus time in the park in certain lands past the posted closing time, so how it’s handled must vary depending on the event. Check the park hours and if you see an unusually early closing time of, say, 6 p.m. during your visit, be sure to ask cast members about when the shops will close. Looking at the February schedule, we do not see any early closures on the calendar and do not anticipate any problems for you!

The overlay usually takes about 2 and a half weeks to put up. In 2019, the ride was closed from Aug. 26 - Sept. 6 to install the overlay.

Hi Jennifer!

As of now, the rides that will be under refurbishment during your trip look to be "it's a small world" Holiday, Mark Twain Riverboat, Snow White's Scary Adventures and Haunted Mansion. This is subject to change as you get a little closer to your trip, so be sure to hop back for updates!

Keep hopping!

What would you say are the odds they'd close Splash Mountain AND Indiana in February if Haunted Mansion is still closed? We have a Feb trip upcoming and we want to be emotionally prepared if we can't go on some of our top choices.

Hi Carrie!

We toadally understanding wanting to emotionally prepare yourself! We don't have the dates for the seasonal Splash Mountain refurb yet, and the dates for the Indy refurb hasn't been released just yet, either. We'll update as soon as we know more! While we can't possibly guess, we'd agree that it'd be unlikely that all would be down at the same time; we'd guess that they'd be staggered.

I'm obsessively checking the attractions daily (ha ha) and as of 2/9 Splash is still shown as open, so fingers crossed. Also, Indiana is still open as of 2/9. :) We are a little blue that Fantasmic will be on a weekend-only schedule and we are going Tues-Thurs, but we got to see it in Disneyworld last year, so we feel lucky to have done that.

When they say it’s a small world Holiday what does that mean exactly?

Hi Michelle!

"it's a small world" Holiday is a special holiday-themed overlay that the attraction receives for the holiday season. Here's a video of this year's overlay!

Hello! How can I stay up to date on when the Indiana Jones ride will be closed in 2020? I'm planning a trip for the last week in April, but haven't made reservations yet and would be devastated if the ride is closed while I'm there. I'm just wondering when they may announce more details on its closure and how long it'll be closed. Thanks!

Hopefully Indiana Jones will be open by March, since they might want to celebrate the ride's 25th anniversary, i'm going during the second week of may, hopefully Indiana, Snow white and Haunted Mansion will be open by then.

Have a trip to go to Disneyland 1/9/2020-1/11/2020, saw that the Christmas decorations come down around 1/6, safe to assume a decent amount of the Christmas-decorated rides will be closed? :/ haunted mansion, small world, etc?

Hi Parker!

Yes, sadly, Haunted Mansion will be closed. We do not yet have the date that it's a small world will close. They usually start the removal after Haunted Manion. For the past two years, the removal has begun Jan. 22, so you might still catch it! You can usually find ride closures about 6 weeks before your trip on the entertainment schedule.

Redwood Creek in DCA was closed as of 11/3. I believe for holiday decorating. Not sure for how long.

Hi Nan!

Right now, we haven't heard about any closures during that time, but since it's still early, we'd suggest hopping back closer to your trip to see if anything has changed :)

Hi Laura!

There's not an official event listed (or a refurbishment), but it's possible that the park is closing for a private party or event.

Going to Disney nov 2-6 will there still be a frozen live show during that time?

Reply

Hi Darlene!

Frozen is typically showing Sunday through Thursdays these days. It’s on the calendar for Sunday Nov 3. The whole entertainment schedule is not published yet for the rest of that week yet, so keep checking the Disneyland site (Go to “Parks & Tickets” then “Entertainment Schedule”) to see the calendar of events and show times.

Fantasmic is grayed out the during the week for a couple of weeks in November. Is something going on or is there a chance it will still be on?

Reply
Oct 8, 2019 at 3:07 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Laura!

It may be too far out to see the schedule. Normally the calendar is out 6 weeks in advance. But not every show time will be out that early.

Disneyland has been waiting longer than usual to announce their full show schedule and even some dining reservations this fall. A safe bet will be to expect two shows Friday, Sat. and Sun. each week plus holidays. Some weekdays may not have a show or will have one show, depending on park closing times and expected crowd levels.

I see on the Disneyland app that Matterhorn is closing in late October. Any idea when that will be back open? I am hoping it will be open when I am there the first weekend in November!
