Refurbishments are ongoing throughout Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, one refurbishment has now been extended weeks later than anticipated. See how this may affect your upcoming touring plans to Walt Disney World.

Refurbishments

Refurbishment is a dreaded word for Disney fans who will soon be visiting Walt Disney World. In theory, we all understand that refurbishments are a necessary part of keeping each Park magical. However, it is sad when one of your favorite rides, attractions, or even photo opportunities are affected by an extended refurbishment.

In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the thrilling attraction, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster received a refurbishment while still in operation. We love the new refurbishment that has brought new life to Mickey’s PhilharMagic in Magic Kingdom.

Prepare to get soaked! Kali River Rapids is a classic water ride at Animal Kingdom and is set in the lush jungles of Asia. This thrilling whitewater adventure takes you across geysers, hanging vegetation, along fast-moving rapids, and down a 20 foot slope.

My (Donna) family absolutely loves the Kali River Rapids. I always bring extra ponchos and flip flops if we will be enjoying this attraction. It never fails that my husband chooses the “unlucky” seat that gets totally drenched while journeying down the river.

In September we shared that Kali River Rapids would undergo a refurbishment in November. We were unsure of how long this attraction would be closed, but it appeared that it extend until at least the end of December.

Refurbishment Extended

Just last week we shared that Kali River Rapids would reopen earlier than expected. This was great news for Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but it appears we packed our ponchos a bit prematurely.

Unfortunately, the date for this refurbishment is now past what was shown on the Walt Disney World website. Kali River Rapids will now reopen to Guests on January 4, 2022.

The date that Kali River Rapids now reopens will occur simultaneously to when Expedition Everest will close for a prolonged refurbishment.
