If there is one thing fans should know about Disney, it is that the theme parks and resorts are constantly in a state of evolution. Since the beginning, Disney has always been known for introducing new and exciting attractions and offerings to their destinations. However, it isn’t just the new offerings that cause construction for Disney. Rennovations and repairs are also an essential part of keeping Disney running smoothly.

Now, a prominent Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is preparing for a significant closure of its own.
