Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on March 18, 2019 769 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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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 into Pixar Pier last summer, and Disneyland Park is adding a Star Wars-themed land, Galaxy's Edge in summer 2019, and unnamed Marvel-themed land 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.

I am also planning a trip end of Jan, early Feb. I think it's ridiculous that Disney doesn't release the schedule sooner. Guaranteed they already know the schedule and have known for months if not longer. It makes it so hard to plan a trip. I can't book hotel reservations until I've 100% confirmed the schedule. Pirates is the one ride that is my deal breaker. If it's not running, I don't go, no exceptions.

Disney needs to open a new report/park near Leggoland. There are too many people coming up from south of Orange County to attend the park. Our family has pretty much given up on Disneyland. It's always too crowded. We refuse to pay $100's to stand in long lines, behind obese, tatted-up, trashers. Used to be a nice park, but now the LCDs have lowered the culture. Things are sooo expensive in CA. I just don't understand how people can afford maintaining a lifestyle of getting both child-art tats and going to Disneyland?! Must be my supportive tax dollars at work.

Where do you get your information from? A lot of the rides that are mentioned on this site say that they'll be closed but if you go to the actual Disneyland website there's no mention of them. Also trader Sam's closing down is just a rumor and there's no information on that anywhere either so I'm just wondering where you got your knowledge from???

I am fairly certain that most and/or all attractions at Disneyland should be "up and running" during Presidents Day Weekend, as well as during the following week...I also am fairly certain that most and/or all attractions at Disneyland should be "up and running" during Spring Break Season...What I am not certain about is whether most and/or all attractions should be "up and running" during the week-or-so that is "sandwiched" in-between those 2 VERY busy times...My guess is probably they are, since there is not very much time to completely shut things down to do "proper" repairs, but then again, I have not been to Disneyland at that time of the year in AGES and it seems as if the park management has made MANY changes to the way they handle refurbishments...if anybody can shed some light on this issue for me, please reply!!!

Thanks so much for getting back to us. We have been tracking wait times for Disneyland and California adventure - mostly because we are excited for our family vacation next week - and just noticed golden zephyr always seemed closed. It's one of our favorites because everyone likes it (with six kids that can be hard to do sometimes). We are really going Matterhorn will only be closed for a few days since we go the 9-11, but I don't know how good our odds are with that. Oh well, you win some and lose some. Thanks again!

Hi Tori!

Based on Disneyland's website, it seems the Haunted Mansion will be closed Jan. 9-19 for the holiday overlay removal. "it's a small world" looks like it will be closed Jan. 22-Feb. 2. These dates could possibly change. We'll update as soon as we know!

The seasonal closures section of our refurbishments post consists of estimates based on past closures, so these aren't 100% certain. Always check back!

Keep hopping!

Hi there,

I was planning a trip in the begging of February 2017 but it looks according to the disneyland website that several of our favorites are closed for refurbishment, including pirates of the carribean. I was wondering where you are able to see when those are scheduled to reopen as I couldn't find that information on the disneyland site. Thanks in advance.

Hi Emily,

The Disneyland website will have the most up-to-date information about refurbishment timelines. Those refurbishments are always scheduled to change without notice, and a re-opening date isn't always known until a few days before re-opening!

Keep Hopping!

Planning to visit Disneyland LA during April - June 2017 and wondering if there are any closures or days the whole park is closed so that we can avoid them. as coming from New Zealand. Thanks.

Hi Robyn,

We don't have any word on attraction closures (except for those already listed on this post) for that time period, but keep an eye out! We'll report them as soon as we know. The parks will definitely be open, though!

Hey! Visiting from Canada January 30, 2017-February 3, 2017. Think we'll be in the clear for rides? I heard talk that Pirates my go down in early/mid January. I'd be so devastated to miss that one :(

Hi Eastyn,

No official word yet on Pirates. But we'll report it as soon as we know! Rides with holiday overlays (Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, it's a small world) close during January for the overlay removal, but they'll probably be back open in time for your visit. As soon as we get the dates, we'll update this post!

Hi there! We are trying to plan a special trip with my daughter and her bestie to Disneyland, before they head off to different schools for high school. Does anyone happen to know how far in advance scheduled closures are listed? We have some flexibility and are trying to decide between late January or February, so I'd like to plan when there are the least expected closures. Our friend has never been, so we want to make sure she gets to go on as many of the "famous" rides as possible. Someone told me that January tends to be "refurbishment month," and that It's a Small World, Pirates, Haunted House, and Soarin are all often closed that month, so now I'm nervous! Any input would be so appreciated! :)

When I was there recently aside from the listed closures many rides close temporarily for the day. Kind of makes going a waste or time and money. Lots of money to pay just to shop and be pushed around. The haunted mansion was closed when it was time to use our Fastpass. Mermaid ride was closed on and off all day, Same with Snow White. Frozen times for Tuesday on the printed schedule they giv you are wrong, plus there was not a FastPass for that even though it was stated there was.Walked all the way to get the FastPass only to be told to show up 45 minutes before the show and hope to get it......Total waste of money at Disneyland and CA until the attractions open up.

What's the deal with some of these things only being down for weekdays and then opening back up for the weekend?

I am taking my 2 children - ages 6 & 9 - to Disneyland for their first time. I grew up in Southern California so went frequently, but I can see that Disneyland is a whole different ballgame than when I used to go. My parents are coming with us (we will be 3 adults & 2 children) and have offered to pay for one night at a Disney hotel so that we can get early entrance to a park. I am trying to decide the best arrangement so that we can spend time at Disneyland, Ca Adventure, and I know the boys will want to play at the hotel (especially water slide if the weather is warm enough). We will be going the first week of November, likely arriving Monday 11/7 at the park, driving from north county San Diego (approx 1.5 hours depending on traffic). With this plan, we'd go straight to Ca Adventure park and spend the day there so that on Tues we could take advantage of magic hour for Disneyland. My question is are there cool things to do in Ca Adventure at night, as we won't be able to stay until close at Disneyland on Tuesday. Should we spring for park hopper tickets and spend Monday evening at Disneyland? Do you have any other ideas for how to maximize fun and minimize lines & exhaustion? My brother-in-law said we should spend 2 nights at the hotel and 2 days in the parks (as opposed to 1 night/2 days), but I am not sure that is in the budget. Thanks!

Hi Rebecca,

Be sure to catch World of Color in DCA. We love the way Cars Land lights up at night and there is plenty to see and do. We use single rider lines and FastPasses. If you are too late to get tickets to Frozen Live, hop in the stand-by line about an hour before the show. The parks close early both those nights (at 8 and 9 p.m. both nights), so that means no nighttime entertainment/fireworks at Disneyland.

Hi,

We are going to Disneyland Nov 12-17. Based on previous years is it likely that space mountain will be open again by then from removing the ghost galaxy overlay? Also do you have any guesses on about when small world and jungle Cruise will open with their Christmas decorations?

Hi Ashley,

The overlay usually only takes a few days to remove. Hopefully it'll be open for your visit! Keep checking this post.

Hi there! When I booked my trip for the first week of October, Splash Mountain wasn't included in the closures. Now it is. On the app, it shows closed as of Sunday, Oct 2nd. The website shows closed as of Monday, Oct 3rd. Any idea on this? October 2nd is our first day in the park so I'm hoping we'll get a chance to ride it that day before it closes!!

I'm going the same week and just noticed it's been added to the list! So disappointed. It wasn't when I booked either - and our first day is the first day it's closed :(

Hi Grace,

Disney refurbishments are tricky! They sometimes change without any notice. As of now, we're seeing that it's officially closed on Monday, Oct. 3rd. If anything changes, we'll be sure to update this post. Crossing our fingers for you!

Keep hopping!
