Here’s Everything Closing for Refurbishment at Disneyland in 2023

If you’re planning a visit to Disneyland Resort in California sometime during 2023, you’ll want to be aware of scheduled refurbishments of rides and attractions so you don’t miss something you really love–or something you’ve always wanted to experience!

Some of Disneyland’s regular refurbs are expected, such as Haunted Mansion, which transforms into Haunted Mansion Holiday during the holiday season. As the season comes to a close, all of the detailed overlays must be removed so that another transformation can take place, and Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction can re-materialize.

Other refurbishments are unexpected, even by frequent visitors to Disneyland, such as the massive overhaul that’s underway at the Indiana Jones attraction at Disneyland Park.

The rest of Toontown is currently undergoing an overhaul and will reopen on March 8.
