WDW Refurbishment Calendar

Planning a trip to Walt Disney World is considered by some to be an ordeal. Between dinning reservations, booking fast passes, deciding which days to do each park. One thing that can definitely throw a wrench in your plans is that a favorite attraction or store is closed.

Keep in mind that Walt Disney World might decide out of the blue to close a certain attraction for quick tune up, but for the most part they give ample time for you to plan accordingly.

Magic Kingdom
