Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on September 16, 2019 828 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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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 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.

Hi! My brother and I will be making our very first trip to Disneyland this year! We’ve been to Disney World more times than I can count, and Haunted Mansion is my all time fav, while Space Mountain is my brother’s. Go figure, our trip has ended up being from August 26th until September 6th. You know, right around when both apparently go down for some seasonal overlays in California, wicked awesome!????Soooo...anybody remember the EXACT timeframes of the closures the last few years? Think we got a shot at either, whether it’s before or after? Fingers crossed?

Hi Kara,

Oh, no! We don't have any specifics on when the rides closed in the past, and we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is very little chance you'll be able to experience either of these attractions. They both close for about 3 weeks at the end of August. Keep an eye out on this post for details closer to your trip! We'll cross our fingers for you.

Hello!

Thank you for your website! It's a fantastic resource that I refer to all the time.

I wanted to see if there was a general update on the walls at Disneyland (particularly on town square/mainstreet). I know that there are a lot construction projects at disneyland. However, is there an estimated time of when those walls will come down on mainstreet/town square? Thanks for your time!

Hi Luke!

We're so hoppy to hear you enjoy our site ... we're glad we can help! Disneyland hasn't announced any specifics on when the walls will come down on Main Street and the Town Square area. The most we've heard is that the project will be completed in the spring ... hopefully sooner rather than later!

That's a great question. We haven't heard quite yet if Ariel's Grotto will return, or if a new location will debut. Unfortunately, with the current timeline of refurbishments, we doubt a princess meal will be available in time for your April visit.

With Splash Mountain having closed for refurbishment in early January, our guess is that it will be back up-and-running in time for your March spring break trip ... but that is not confirmed! (We'll update this post as we get more definite info.)

Hi Kirsty,

We are unsure of the exact date Pixar Pier will open, but Disney says it will open in Summer 2018! So, hopefully this definitely means by August. We can't say for sure when Big Thunder Mountain Railroad closes, but it usually goes down sometime in August or September for a few days!

I went with a fractured toe. They have a system where you get a return time At the exit of certain rides so you don’t have to stand in line. You have to get a red tag or something similar at guest services when you first get to the park. You can get one at either California venture or Disneyland and it’s good for both parks for the duration of your stay

Hi Kathy,

Disneyland began replacing the Main Street tracks on Jan. 8. We're not sure how long this will take, but we imagine it's a fairly lengthy process as they are maintaining as much of the original track as possible. Other than Main Street vehicles being out of operation, we don't think this will impact traffic noticeably in the park.

Will splash mountain be open for my feb4-5 and visit?

Hi Deb,

Disneyland's site does not show a re-open date in the near future. Because your visit is so close to the Feb. 2 closing, we wouldn't count on being able to take a ride on Splash Mountain this time.

Hi Kierra,

Congratulations on your graduation! Splash Mountain has closed for refurbishment and Disneyland has not announced when it will re-open as of yet. We'll be sure to update this post when we know. We hope you enjoy your trip!

Hi Tom,

Pixar Pier will open during the Pixar Fest, which starts on April 13. That being said, we aren't sure exactly what will still be under construction since much of the attractions on the pier won't open until Summer 2018. Keep an eye out for more updates!

Wondering if there will be a parade Jan. 20--22? Taking my 4 y.o. granddaughter for the first time and she LOVE parades.

Hi Amy,

As of now, the Disneyland daily schedule of events isn't displaying any parades for those days. However, the shows, Fantasmic! and World of Color, will both be showing. We recommend checking them out!

Hi there,

We will be going to Disneyland next weekend. Jan 6th and 8th will be spent in Disney and Jan 7th will be spent at California Adventure. It seems like most things are closing on the 8th, super sad to see splash mountain is closing early. Will they still have the parades and shows? We’ve never been there on a transitional time before and want to be prepared for what’s going to not be there.

Hi Veronica,

Yes, you'll still be able to see parades and firework shows. The holiday specials (A Christmasy Fantasy Parade, Believe...In Holiday Magic, etc.) will all still be showing.

Good morning. Thank you for putting this together! Do you have any idea how long Ariel's Grotto will be closed for refurbishment? Was hoping to take our daughter there on her 5th birthday - March 2, 2018. Are we out of luck?

Reply

Sorry to say, but Ariel's grotto will be closed permanently starting Jan 8th, 2018. Pixar Pier will replace that area in summer 2018. My daughters are not happy about that.

Has the "bride auction scene" inside the "pirates" ride at DISNEYLAND in CALIFORNIA changed to the "surrender the loot scene" yet (as of today, December 28th, 2017, that is...)??? I know that "scene" won't start to "change" until the ride is closed for refurbishment in mid-February at WDW in FLORIDA, but I am more interested in when it will "change" at DISNEYLAND in CALIFORNIA since that is the only Disney theme park I really go to anymore... It probably will already be "changed" by the time I go there next (early summer of 2018), but I want to at least know if it has "changed" yet or not... Thanks in advance for your time!!!

Why are they changing the Bride Auction Scene? That really bothers me how they will mess with original themes. Over the years how many people have come to love that ride and love to come back and see it as they remembered it. I hope it’s not being changed because some virtue signalling small minds cannot get into the Disney spirit and see it for what it is (a show) and not as a political statement!

Hi Justine,

We totally understand loving the original ride...we do too! Disney is always evolving its attractions. We're unsure of the specific reasoning behind it, but we're sure the new scene will be just as great.

Hi Ron,

We are unsure of an exact date of when the scene will change at Disneyland. So far it's only been said to open in early 2018. Keep checking back!

Thanks for letting me know...at least I got to see the "bride auction scene" once more this past July, so if it is changed by the time I get there next summer, I guess that will be OK with me...

wondering how long rides close, both the California Screamin and Grizzly Run close a week before we come, any chance they will be back up and running?

Reply
Dec 28, 2017 at 9:13 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi there,

If a date has not been revealed for the re-opening, we cannot say for sure. California Screamin' is getting a new ride overlay, so we expect it to be fairly lengthy.

We are going in mid-April during Pixar Fest. Do you know if the Pier will be open including the rides for that event, or is it just a character meet and greet event? Also will Ariel's Grotto be made into a new dining experience?

Hi Jenn,

We do know that Pixar Pier will open for a limited time during Pixar Fest, but we are unsure of what it'll all include. The new rides and attractions of Paradise Pier are set to open Summer 2018. Keep checking back for more updates!
