 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 several refurbishments that will be hitting Walt Disney World in the new year, including the Disney Skyliner, Expedition Everest, and more! 

1. Kali River Rapids (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

Status: Confirmed

Dates: November 1 2021 - December 19 2021

Kali River Rapids' annual refurbishment is now in full swing, and even though the temperatures in central Florida have cooled off, those who are missing this attraction can ride it once again beginning in just a few weeks on December 19, 2021

2. Blizzard Beach 

Status: Confirmed

Dates: December 26 2021 - TBA 2022

Blizzard Beach, the only water park currently operating at Walt Disney World will be closing for refurbishment this December, reopening sometime next year. However, some are hoping that this will potentially pave the way for a Typhoon Lagoon reopening (which has not operated since March 2020) either later this year or early next year.
