Disneyland Refurbishments & Closings

by Leap on July 15, 2019 797 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 Permanent closures are attractions that are no longer active in the parks, refurbishments are temporary closures, and seasonal closures take place annually.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.

Heading SoCal at the end of February. Disappointed to see Pirates is closed for February. Our dates are not yet available on the DL website so I don't know if Pirates will reopen in time for our visit. Anybody know the typical length of time for the annual refurb of Pirates? Is there a typical refurb time? I have seen it closed for only 2 weeks before, but longer other times. I am just being optimistic. Thanks.

Hi Brady,

There really is no typical refurb time for any Disney attraction. It depends on what part of the attraction they are working on, and how long those refurbishments could take.

Planning a trip from across the country to LA and visiting Disneyland January 12th. The season closure for the haunted mansion says the beginning of January but does not state when it might open again. Also the it's a small world and splash mountain say closing mid January. Does anyone know if I can expect any of these to be open on January 12th?

Reply

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!

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!

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.

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?

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

Hi Ashley,

Haunted Mansion and it's a small world are usually closed during the middle or end of January to remove the holiday overlay. We don't have exact dates on this yet, but we'll post as soon as we do; those are usually the main rides closed during that time. Definitely keep checking back, though! As far as it being a busy time, the end of January is a good time to go. There shouldn't be too many crowds since the holidays and school breaks are over.

Hi there! We're planning a trip towards the end of August. This will be the first "summer trip" as we usually go after Labor Day. Unfortunately, because of that, we always miss the Haunted Mansion due to the redecorating for the holidays. I really don't want to miss it this time. Can you please tell me when it will shut down this year? Thank you!

Hi Liz,

We never know for sure until Disney officially announces it, but looking at past years, the ride usually closes the end of August (right before Labor Day) through mid-September (around when Halloween Time starts) for the holiday overlay. We post the dates as soon as we are notified, so keep checking back!

Hi Donna,

So sorry to hear that you will miss it. The closure is so that Haunted Mansion can be transformed into the Nightmare Before Christmas.

Keep hopping!

Do you think they will leave the hat box ghost in after they do the "christmas" overhall? I would think so, but not 100% sure.

Booked from apr 27 to May 1

Is there any chance any of these refurbs finish early? Indiana Jones is scheduled to finish May 1...re-open May 2.....Never been on that one.

Does early ever happen? Or is all hope lost?

Went last year mid May and Pirates of the the Caribbean was closed. We have another trip planned mid May this year and wondering if anyone knows if Pirates of the Caribbean should be open. It's our favorite ride so really hoping it's open this time!

If you go to disney.com they will show you now till mid May all the closures and events. Go to the park hours and look under 5 day view at the days you will be there. Scroll all the way down to the bottom, and you will see all the rides currently scheduled for refurbishment! It looks like Pirates should be open!!!! Enjoy your trip!

How far in advance are refurbs posted? We are planning trip end of Oct. 2015. I'm hoping with all going on early for diamond celebration that there will be very little refurb during our visit?

Most refurbs seem to happen in September transferring out of the peak summer season and into the holday season. October will be nice with the Halloween overlay and Nightmare Before Christmas themes being added to the Haunted Mansion. Pirates has been closed recently for a touch up but should be open before Oct 1st.

One thing I didn't realize before we went Jan 29-Jan 31st of 2015 was that the castle would be covered and you wouldn't be able to see it. That was the biggest bummer even though I knew it was going to be "closed" before we decided to go. Getting details as to why it was hidden from sight just made me want to come back later this year. They are getting ready to celebrate the 60th anniversary and they are glittering up the castle. Lots of exciting things are coming for the celebration. Sad now that we won't get to see all that exciting stuff.

Thanks so much for this! As a new (out of state) annual passholder, and having been a handful of times the past few years, I'm curious of one thing: how good are they at keeping to the schedule? If I plan a trip for late April or early May, do you think I can count on Critter Country being re-opened? A few years ago, I was expecting Thunder Mountain to be reopened when I went in December but it was delayed much beyond that. Thanks for any advice!

Hi Kristyn,

It is possible for refurbishments to be delayed, although most stay within schedule. Usually any delay isn't too far past the original date.

Keep hoppin'!

Does anyone know if there is a chance that a ride reopens earlier than expected?

Hi Paul,

Sometimes refurbs get moved all together, or refurb plans are scrapped, but usually if it is scheduled for rehab, it opens back when expected.

Keep hopping!

Be very aware they have building works happening At Magic Kingdom & Animal Kingdom. Down Town Disney is a building site !!

Very disappointing they couldn't do it one place at a time!!

Good to know as I just made new plans to go elsewhere. They are over priced when fully operating so I would never pay full prices for half a show. Never.
