4. Walt Disney World Railroad (Magic Kingdom)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: Now - TBA 2022

Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed since the beginning of 2019 and though there haven't been any official updates on the refurbishment of this attraction, with the delay of the TRON Lightcycle / Run, it looks like this refurbishment will last at least another year due to construction slowdowns, as Disney is rumored to now be targeting a 2022 opening date for  TRON Lightcycle / Run. Disney has yet to update their official calendar for this attraction, but we'll let you know if there are any updates in the near future.

Dates: April 2021 - September 2021 (Rumored)

Starting this month, Disney's Contemporary Resort will begin a refurbishment to reimagine Guest rooms. While some Main Tower rooms will be unavailable during this time, most resort areas and amenities will still be available to enjoy. No official end date has been announced but reportedly this refurbishment is set to last through September 2021.

6. Jungle Cruise (Magic Kingdom)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: Soon - Late 2021

It looks like a closure for the Jungle Cruise may be imminent at the Magic Kingdom, as Disney has confirmed that the current Jungle Cruise will be closing soon with the new version debuting later in 2021. 

When it reopens, this ride will have a new story and creative concept which will allow guests to follow a Jungle Cruise skipper and their passengers as a journey goes awry. Guests will float by a skipper who’s been chased up the pole by the rhino along with the other explorers as well as an all-new scene where a sunken boat splits apart and chimps board the wreckage, with monkey business ensuing.
