Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on March 2, 2020 899 Los Angeles

A note from Leap: Many of the Southern California theme parks are temporarily closed in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus disease, or COVID-19. For more details about park closures, read our blog post, which we will continue to update with the latest news.

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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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 transformed Pixar Pier last summer, Disneyland Park added a Star Wars-themed land, Galaxy's Edge, in summer 2019, and Avengers Campus, a Marvel Super Hero themed land, will open in 2020. (Read more about what's coming to Disneyland!) With changes, there are sometimes ride closures! Don't fret! There is still plenty to do and see at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

Hello! Headed to the parks first week of May, and I was wondering if you know average reopening dates for rides if they say spring 2020? Is it typically April, May...etc? Hoping we'll get to do Haunted Mansion! And if Indiana Jones hasn't been announced yet, do I dare hope they'll hold off until Fall at this point? Or is a spring refurb more likely? Thanks!

Unfortunately, we don't have any news on reopening dates just yet! Haunted Mansion and Snow White are expected to open again in the spring (end of March to mid-June), while all we know for Indy is sometime in 2020. Keep hopping back - we'll be sure to update as soon as we know more!

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!

Hi Valerie!

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. We don't know Halloween Time's dates for 2020 just yet, but in 2019, Halloween Time began on Sept. 6. If 2020 follows 2019's trends, you'd be good to go! We'll be sure to update our Halloween Time post as soon as we have more information for 2020!

The week of 2/16, the following rides are shown to be open at least through 2/19: Grizzly River Run (reopens 2/14, which is so cool because I've NEVER been on it!), Splash Mtn, Indiana Jones.

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.

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.

Expect “it’s a small world” to be closed as it gets ready for the holidays; we'll make any additional refurbishment changes that pop up on this post, as well. There is no chair seating for Fantasmic. It is all standing except for restaurant packages, which are seated on the ground.

Is anything going on from 9/29/19 - 10/2/2019 that would make me unable to book either Oga's Cantina or the Fantasmic Dining Package? I am less than 60 days out and no times show up for either. I assume there is something going on, but can't find out what.

Hi Karen!

You are not alone. While Disneyland usually allows reservations up to 60 days in advance, many people are noticing that there are no reservations options for some experiences/times during that period. They just have not been released yet. Perhaps they are finalizing park hours. The entertainment calendar does not have all fall information posted yet either, so some information is delayed in coming our this year. Keep checking back because they may open soon!

I read a month ago that Pirates and blue Bayou would be closed the week of Oct 21st thru 25th when we are flying down to stay that week. Now I can't find it. Hopefully it will be open when we go. 1st trip for the 4 grandkids. Ty

Hi Valeri!

It looks like Blue Bayou is open for reservations that week, according to the Disneyland website - so we think you're safe in terms of a refurbishment hoppening then!

Do you know how long Winnie the Pooh will be closed? I noticed on the app it is closed starting September 16th and the schedule isn't out yet beyond the 28th.

Hi Sammy!

If you head to Disneyland's site, on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride page, you can toggle the calendar and see operating hours for the ride for each day.

Where did you get the information that Hyperspace Mountain will be closed August 12th and 14th? It doesn’t say it will be closed on the app. We’re just concerned because we are going the 12th and 13th and that’s our favorite. Thank you!

Hi! Thanks for all the info!

Any idea if World of Color in DCA will be under refurbishment for Halloween? I know they'll be doing a show for the Halloween party and I'm hoping to go early September. I hope its not down, that's an amazing show!

Do a lot of rides close for a couple days to take holiday decorations down or is it basically all done overnight.

Hi Shelly!

These tend to take a little bit of time, the exception being Space Mountain. The Haunted Mansion's holiday overlay removal happened from Jan. 7-17 in 2019. “It’s a Small World” was closed until about Feb. 1.

Hello! Thanks for your informative article! Going to Disneyland in early September, will Hyperspace Mountain be back up and running by then?

Reply

Hi Michael!

Hyperspace Mountain is currently running, and according to the OC Register, will continue through October 31. There will be no Ghost Galaxy during Halloween time this year. We see that the calendar has it starting refurbishment on August 28, and the calendar goes out only 6 weeks, so keep checking the calendar over the next few weeks for updates as to when the refurbishment ends.

Just saw on a post that the Haunted Mansion will definitely be closed 8/26-9/5 to transform into the Nightmare Before Christmas version!

So nightmare before Christmas opens instead of haunted mansion on 5th September or 6th?

Hi, looking at the calendar during our upcoming teil; August 12th -16th, Hyperspace Mountain is listed as “closed for refurbishment on Monday, the 12th and Wednesday, the 14th. Oddly, not listed as closed on Tuesday, the 13th, or the 15th or 16th. Any ideas?

Also, any idea why DCA closes at 5:00 pm on Thursday, the 15th? Every other day is 9:00 pm.

Thanks!

Hi Kari!

There's a special event going on on Thursday the 15th - no word on what exactly it is, only that it's happening :) We aren't sure what's going on with the refurbishment schedule for Hyperspace Mountain! At least there's some opportunity for you to ride during your trip!

Hi Mel!

It is possible it will be closed. In 2018, it closed on Oct. 22 and reopened on Nov. 9. This year is could possibly be closed by Oct. 21. We'll keep you posted as we know more!

Hi! is there any info on when the Haunted Mansion ride will be closed for Halloween preparations? We're planning a trip sometime in mid August and would love catch the ride before renovations. Thanks!

Hi Justin!

Mid-August should be fine. It usually closes at the end of August. Last year it closed August 20th, so it’s possible that it could close beginning Aug 19, but that’s just a guess. We'll keep you posted as we hear more!
