Breaking: Many Disney World Attractions are Now Closed

Breaking: Many Disney World Attractions are Now Closed

Yikes! Several attractions at Disney World are currently closed!

Rides close for a number of reasons. Disney may need to perform extended maintenance so the ride closes for a refurbishment. This is very common, and in fact, sometimes those refurbishments are even extended. In fact, Expedition Everest will remain closed longer than originally planned.

Other times, a portion of a ride closes. Perhaps work on part of the attraction is needed, but closing the entire ride is not necessary. This is currently happening at Tower of Terror. We are seeing extremely high wait times as Disney closes some of the elevators.

Of course, weather and electric issues can affect attractions. There has been some crazy weather this past week which created flood-like circumstances at Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Magic Kingdom.

Sometimes attractions close due to unforeseen circumstances. If the ride breaks down and Disney cannot immediately get it back up and running, Guests may be forced to evacuate the ride.

We are seeing several attraction closures at Disney World today, March 11. At Epcot, Frozen Ever After is currently down. Over at Animal Kingdom, Guests cannot board Kilimanjaro Safaris.

Magic Kingdom is the most affected of all the parks right now. Here’s a list of what’s currently down (at time of writing):

  • Astro Orbiter
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Liberty Square Riverboat
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

That’s a grand total of 8 attractions!

Why the closures?

As you can see, there is a mixture of indoor and outdoor ride closures, but there is no severe weather currently. There is a chance of severe weather this weekend. You can see Joe’s report HERE.

This leads me to think there is some type of electric issue affecting parts of Liberty Square, Frontierland, and Tomorrowland. Of course, I cannot be sure of that but that is my best guess.

Since park hopping isn’t available until 2 pm, your best bet is to stick around Magic Kingdom and find some other attractions that are open. Hopefully the above attractions will reopen soon!

Are you at Magic Kingdom today? What’s your game plan with all these closed attractions? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.

Well said! We went to Disney Springs a couple of weeks ago, and the bathrooms were disgusting! Took my handicapped mother to Magic Kingdom, no accommodation to speak of. The Magic is gone, and the workers are rude.

Rains on the 12th caused flooded walkways in the park along with lightning strikes. Mom-Co-Vid related.

I don't know if Disney is catering to the rich. Not even the rich would put up with this chaos. Even the wealthy are not going to deal with the Genie+ and extra charges for rides that breakdown. No one wants to deal with filthy bathrooms, less food for more money, and rude crowds. Then of course there are the fires!!! I think this new board and CEO only care about the immediate bottom line. As long as money, and lots of it, is coming in - who cares what will happen 5 to 10 years down the road? They will pack up their millions and go somwhere else.

We were there on Monday March 7 and we are 90% sure that we got Covid there. I'm laying in bed as we speak and my husband is in the other room with a terrible cough.No one was wearing masks...(including us- we should have known better). .. But we were boosted so we felt pretty safe. We were packed into waiting areas like sardines. My husband and I have never gotten Covid, but both of us came down with it as well as our six month old grandchild.

I have never seen Magic Kingdom so crowded and the line so long. No lines were less than 40 minutes.

We bought the extra GENIE pass for $15 apiece and that was SUPPOSED To be similar to the old fast Passes. (I think they call it LL or lightning lane now) This system was terribly frustrating! We got our First fast pass ride at 10:30 AM and then weren't able to get another fast pass until 12:45 PM. The next fast pass was available at 4 PM but we were so sick of the whole thing we left by 3 PM.

Why are they shutting down rides? It's possible they don't have enough staff from COVID.

I won't to Disney Parks any more, it costs a small fortune and for what? Broken down rides? No thanks!! There are other parks not under the Disney umbrella that are much more reliable
