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.
In addition to these refurbishments, here are the refurbs and overhauls expected in the new year at Disneyland Resort:
Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln: January 9-25
Haunted Mansion: January 30 – February 9
“it’s a small world”: January 9-19
Indiana Jones Adventure: January 9 – Spring 2023
Splash Mountain: January 23 – late 2024 (Complete re-theming will take place.)
Tarzan’s Treehouse: Currently closed, but scheduled to open in 2023 with a brand-new theme
Disney California Adventure
Grizzly River Run: January 9 – Spring 2023
Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind: January 30 – February 9
Mickey’s PhilharMagic: January 24 – February 3
Radiator Springs Racers: January 17-23
In addition to the refurbishments planned at Disneyland, one very exciting debut is planned at the California Disney Park, and it’s the first attraction at Disneyland to feature the theme of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is scheduled to open for Guests’ enjoyment on January 27, 2023.
The ride debuted at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in 2020, and the new attraction will bring a fun and exciting experience to Guests at Disneyland’s Toontown.
The rest of Toontown is currently undergoing an overhaul and will reopen on March 8.
