Two Magic Kingdom Attractions to Undergo Refurbishment This Month

With the return of fireworks at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, we’re seeing more and more Disney fans flood to the parks this month. July has been a great month so far with more to come! For example, who’s ready to head on over to EPCOT to eat and sip your way through EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival?! If visiting Magic Kingdom, you’ll want to be aware there are two new refurbishments that have popped up on the Walt Disney World refurb calendar.

We previously shared the list of July Refurbishments at Walt Disney World. Now, you’ll want to add Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is scheduled to undergo refurbishment July 20 – 22. Evil Emperor Zurg will have to await defeat until July 23 when Buzz Lightyear is scheduled to reopen.

Secondly, “The Happiest Cruise That Ever Sailed” – “it’s a small world” is now scheduled to undergo refurbishment July 27 – 29. You’ll have to wait until July 30 when the attraction is scheduled to reopen to get this song stuck in your head again.

Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin and “it’s a small world” are now on the refurbishment calendar, but Disney has not released what refurbishment may be taking place. With the short closure duration of each attraction, we suspect Disney is planning minor updates that won’t cause the attractions to be down for lengthy closures over the summer, crowded season. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more!

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.
