Disney parks are constantly changing their refurbishment schedules, making it difficult for guests to keep up with the operating times and latest news regarding their favorite attractions, resorts, shops, and restaurants. Here are a few big, upcoming changes that are either confirmed by their respective parks or at the least very strongly rumored for the very near future.

This month's refurbishment update includes some big refurbishments happening in 2020 at both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. 

1. Splash Mountain (Magic Kingdom)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: January 6 - February 28, 2020

Like clockwork Splash Mountain goes down for refurbishment in January every year while the water is drained, the logs are spruced up and various other fixes are performed on this attraction. And it looks like 2020 will be no exception, as Splash Mountain will once again be closed for almost two months at the start of the year before spring temperatures bring warmer temperatures to the resort and the attraction reopens just in time for March. 

2. Test Track (Epcot)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: January 13 - February 26, 2020

Test Track will be closing for a brief refurbishment from January 13th, 2020 to February 26, 2020. No major changes are expected during this closure, as this refurbishment will largely be a tune up to ensure that Test Track is running in tip top condition during another big closure that is set to hit Epcot early next year and last for a year or more...
