Refurbishments are a common occurrence at Disney World. However, this newly scheduled downtime is for an unlikely attraction.
Refurbishments are a part of life at Walt Disney World. It’s not uncommon for at least one attraction to be closed at any given time. Many attractions have just received updates in the months leading up to the 50th anniversary. We still have a few on the horizon, though. See our full list HERE.
Refurbishments may take place for various reasons. Whether it be for mechanical issues or cosmetic updates, a refurbishment can take place for many reasons. Based on the nature of the work, the refurbishment may be a few days or several months.
Thankfully, the next attraction to be refurbished will only be down for a short period of time.
Disney Springs Refurbishment
Did you know Disney Springs is also home to an attraction as well? Aerophile is the world leader in balloon fight, and it calls Disney Spring home!
According to the Disney website, the Aerophile experience will close for refurbishment from October 17 to October 27. It will reopen to Guests on October 28.

More about the Aerophile Experience
Travel 400 feet in the air and enjoy sweeping views of iconic Disney World sights. The experience lasts a total of 8 minutes, but I can guarantee you have never experienced Disney World like this.
The basket can hold 29 people and 1 pilot. Pricing is $25 for guests 10 and up and $20 for children 3-9 years old. I (Monica) have never done this mainly because it would cost almost $150 for my family of 6. It does look really neat, though!
