There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it, Walt Disney World Resort is our favorite place to vacation. Whether visiting Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, or one of the refreshing water parks, we have a blast every time.

That being said, we at Disney Dining will be the first to admit that Walt Disney World isn’t perfect. And therefore, a Walt Disney World vacation isn’t always perfect. Things can go wrong at any time!

Walt Disney World Isn’t Perfect (It’s as Close as It Gets, Though!)

Sometimes, parades and nighttime spectaculars can be rained out by Florida’s fickle weather. Sometimes, we miss out on experiences when we don’t sign up for the virtual queues in time.

Sometimes, we travel hundreds of miles only to find our favorite rides are closed, which is easily the worst-case scenario. There’s nothing worse than building up the excitement for a beloved or brand-new attraction, only to find it closed when you arrive.

If you’re visiting a Disney Park soon and you want to know what’ll be open and closed for sure, you’re totally going to want to hear this.

These Attractions and Experiences Will Be Closed For Sure

While we don’t always know what’ll be open or temporarily closed, we do know that these experiences will be closed for sure.

First up is Tiana’s Bayou Adventure (the attraction replacing Splash Mountain).

Splash Mountain entertained, delighted, and thrilled Guests for decades. But when the source material was deemed offensive (and the ride vehicles began sinking every other day), the Walt Disney Company decided to scrap the attraction and retheme it entirely.

Currently, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is still in construction, and will be through September. This attraction will open to Guests in 2024, so you can be sure there will be no log flumes to experience in Magic Kingdom this September. That being said, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is just around the corner!

Splash Mountain Isn’t the Only Attraction That Finally Sunk

Up next is Hollywood Studios’ Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Unfortunately, we’re fairly certain that this attraction has officially sunk.

Not only has this attraction been closed for years now, but the attraction’s description has officially been taken off of the Walt Disney World website, leading us to believe that Guests will not be experiencing this show anytime soon.

Finally, an entire theme park will be closed through September. We’re talking, of course, about Disney’s Blizzard Beach.

An Entire Theme Park to Remain Closed?!

Walt Disney World may be home to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT, but it’s also home to two wonderful water parks: Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Each year, a water park takes a turn at being open to the public while the other stays dormant. This year, Typhoon Lagoon has remained open for Guests, while Blizzard Beach has been in hibernation.

If you’re tired of Typhoon Lagoon and want to cool off at Blizzard Beach instead, don’t fret! The water park will likely open next year, giving Guests a rest of Typhoon Lagoon.

It should be noted that these are just the closures we’re definitely aware of. An attraction can go down at any time, turning into a “Temporarily Closed” ride at a moment’s notice, so be sure to keep this in mind the next time you visit Walt Disney World.
