Kali River Rapids Now Closed For Refurbishment Through April 2021

Hello Disney’s Animal Kingdom adventurers! If you’re heading to the Asia portion of this stunning Walt Disney World park, you’ll want to take note that the popular water raft ride, Kali River Rapids, is now closed for refurbishment. And yes, you’ll have to wait until April to ride it again!


As shared on the Walt Disney World website: “Kali River Rapids will be closed for refurbishment from Jan. 4 through early April.”

It’s not uncommon for Disney to close Kali River Rapids during the colder months for refurbishment, although this one is a rather lengthy closure.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
