Are you visiting Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom next month? Take note as “The Wildest Ride In The Wilderness” will be temporarily closed select days in June to undergo refurbishment. You’ll have to get your thrills on other coasters as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be closed.


As noted on the Walt Disney World website: “Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be closed for refurbishment from June 7 through June 12.” The webpage does say to check back for updates, but we’re hopeful the refurbishment timeframe will remain on track and Big Thunder will only remain closed for the week.
