Another beloved Disney attraction is going to be soon unavailable for Guests to enjoy.

Right now, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, is facing a large number of closures. The Resort is the oldest of any of the Disney theme Parks, and due to its age, renovations, and restorations of Disney’s iconic rides are necessary.

Many rides have closed or are planning to close down this summer. Included in this list are the Haunted Mansion, Alice in Wonderland, Toy Story Midway Mania, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Other attractions that are closed include Tarzan’s Treehouse, the Disneyland Monorail, the French Market Restaurant, and Mint Julep Bar.

Now, another Disneyland ride will be shutting its doors to Guests.
