5. Hall of Presidents (Magic Kingdom )

Status: Confirmed

Dates: Now - TBA

As of January 20, 2021 the Hall of Presidents is officially closed for refurbishment. While Disney hasn’t announced anything specific about this refurbishment, it can be assumed that President Biden will be added to the attraction (in audio-animatronic form) sometime later this year. The last refurbishment of this attraction in 2017 lasted 11 months, so hopefully we will see this attraction back in action before the end of the year.

6. The Wave (Disney's Contemporary Resort)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: July 16 - Fall  2021

Disney's Contemporary Resort is currently going through a massive refurbishment where rooms are being refreshed with new designs and it looks like The Wave will also be getting a new look this summer as well. Nothing has been specifically announced yet, but with rooms  getting plussed up with character touches from the Incredibles, we wouldn't be surprised if The Wave returns this fall with an Incredibles theme as well. 

7. 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 now 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.

8. Disney Skyliner

Status: Confirmed

Dates: January 23 - 28, 2022

Though it's not happening until next year Disney has scheduled a short refurbishment for the Skyliner gondola transportation system. From January 23 through January 28 2022 this transportation option will be unavailable, with only bus service  available at the resorts served by Disney Skyliner.
