2012 Disney World Winter Ride Closures Beginning to Clarify
By Dave Shute
The list of attractions closed at Disney World for repair or refurbishment in the winter of 2012 is beginning to emerge.
Rides so far known to be closed some or all of this period include
- Fantasmic, closed 1/9/2012 to 2/12/2012
- Big Thunder Mountain, closed 1/9/12 to 5/27/2012
- Dumbo, closed 1/9/12 to 3/31/2012
- The Liberty Belle, closed 1/28 to 5/20
- Kali River Rapids, closed 1/24 through 2/9
- The Main Street Electrical Parade, closed 1/20 to 2/12
- the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, closed 2/26 to 3/10
- The Studio Backlot Tour, closed 2/13 to 3/9
- The Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground, closed 2/13 to 3/10
Many weeks in this time period are great for returning visitors, but because winter ride closures are typical, I don’t recommend January and early February
for first-time visitors who may never return.
