On top of Big Thunder Mountain’s refurbishment, another refurbishment is expected in early 2023.
Refurbishment is a dreaded word for Disney fans who will soon be visiting the Disney Parks. 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 attractions are affected by a refurbishment. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is closing next month. Splash Mountain will also close to be re-imagined into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
And, several attraction refurbishments are scheduled for Disneyland next month as well. See the latest HERE.
Kali River Rapids
Skim across an erupting geyser, drift below a canopy of lush vegetation and be whisked along fast-moving rapids. Graze gushing waterfalls and bedrock amid the raging current. Then, as the harmony of nature is disrupted, you’ll plummet down a dramatic 20-foot slope!
You will surely get splashed on this attraction—and you may even get soaked. Guests wishing to remain dry are encouraged to bring a waterproof poncho, extra clothes or a towel to dry off.
Lockers for mobile devices and other items you want to stay dry are located across from the entrance to Kali River Rapids and are available during your ride (on a first-come, first-served basis).
Guests wishing to remain dry are encouraged to bring a waterproof poncho, extra clothes or a towel to dry off. You can also put your valuables in a locker.
The last day to ride Kali River Rapid is coming up – January 8, 2023. It will close on January 9. At this time, we do not know when it will reopen.
So far, the calendar only goes to mid-February, so hopefully we will know more in the closing weeks. No one likes to get soaked in winter anyway!
Kali River Rapids closes for refurbishment on January 9 with no known reopening date.
