Disney World rides can close for re-dos at any time, but the winter “ride closure season” from early January though mid-February is the most predictable time for Disney World rides to close for rehab and refurbishment.
So far–in great news–it looks like Splash Mountain will only close for a few days in 2016. A couple of other great rides are closed around the same time, however.
Here’s what we currently (think we) know about 2016 Disney World winter ride closures:
- Splash Mountain closed January 6 – January 10
- Liberty Belle Riverboat closed January 18 – 22
- Space Mountain closed January 11 – 15
- Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin closed January 15 – February 11
Animal Kingdom – no known closings
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – no known closings
Epcot – no known closings
I’ll add more winter ride closures as they are announced…
