Status: Confirmed

Dates: January 4 2022 - mid-April 2022

Disney's Animal Kingdom favorite Expedition Everest will close early next year  from January 4 2022 until mid-April 2022 for an equipment refurbishment. No major changes to the actual ride experience are expected, so if you've got your hopes up for a repair for the Yeti, unfortunately, it looks like that won't be happening this time around.

Dates: January 23 - 28 2022

The Disney Skyliner gondola transportation system will be closed for a very short maintenance-related refurbishment from January 23 through January 28 2022. Increased bus service will be available at the resorts served by Disney Skyliner.

5. 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 reportedly targeting a 2022 opening date for  TRON Lightcycle / Run.

Though it has been several years since the Walt Disney World Railroad has operated, Disney has shared an image of newly refurbished Walter E. Disney Engine 1.
