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 the removal of an iconic (or infamous) part of a water slide, plus rumored extensions for several projects around the resort.
1. Keister Coaster Pool Slide at Luna Park Pool (Disney's Boardwalk Resort )
Dates: Now - December 31, 2020
Luna Park Pool went down for refurbishment back in October, and it seems as part of this refurbishment the infamous clown face that was part of the Keister Coaster pool slide has been removed, and will not be returning. Disney has confirmed that this pool slide will be sporting a brand new looks soon, saying in a recent statement:
“We look forward to Mickey and his pals clowning around at Luna Park Pool. Guests will enjoy the same great ride down Keister Coaster slide with a brand-new look.”
Disney's website estimates that work on this pool attraction will be completed before the end of the year, but of course dates are subject to change.
2. Kali River Rapids (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
Dates: January 3, 2021 - April 2 2021
Every year Kali River Rapids goes down for an annual refurbishment, and though this refurbishment was originally scheduled to take place from January 3, 2021 until February 19, 2021, this refurbishment will now reopen over a month later to guests on April 2 2021.
