Today sees many headliners at Disney World closed. Get the full scoop here.
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. Expedition Everest is one such recent example of this!
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. Outdoor attractions will temporarily close if lightning is in the area or rain becomes too heavy.
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
Unfortunately for Guests visiting this week, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster hasn’t been open much. This could surely derail even the most thought-out plans!
Beginning on April 25, it opened as normal but then closed at 11:30 am. It barely operated at all on Tuesday, April 26. This was the same day Rise of the Resistance and Tower of Terror also had a not-so-magical morning.
On Wednesday, April 27, it opened at 10:45 am and ran for the entire day. It also did not open at all yesterday, April 28. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster briefly opened for a little over an hour today, but it is now closed again.
Flight of Passage
Surprisingly, another headliner at a different park is also experiencing some serious technical or mechanical issues. Flight of Passage is a 4.5 minute simulated ride takes you on a journey to experience Pandora’s incredible landscape.
This ride is extremely popular and a favorite among many. Because of this, Flight of Passage boasts long wait times throughout the day and sells out for Lightning Lane Selections fairly quickly.
Unfortunately, no one is waiting in that line or booking those selections because Flight of Passage has not opened at all today, April. 29. Guests will have to hop on the peaceful Na’vi River Journey to get their Pandora fix. Hopefully this ride will open today.
Frozen Ever After
Thankfully, Frozen Ever After did open this morning! That’s a sigh of relief. However, it is now temporarily closed at the time of publication (approximately 12:30 pm ET). We have no idea what’s going on here, but hopefully it will be resolved soon.
Hop on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in France or the Gran Fiesta Tour in Mexico if you need a World Showcase ride fix. There are plenty of other attractions at Epcot, but it still doesn’t make it any less disappointing if Frozen Ever After is closed.
