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 refurbishmentBig Thunder Mountain Railroad is closing next month. Splash Mountain will also close to be re-imagined into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Not only that, but we shared even more refurbishments coming to Disney in 2023 HERE. And several attraction refurbishments are scheduled for Disneyland next month as well. See the latest HERE.

The America Pavilion is located between Italy and Japan Pavilions. If you’re walking from Epcot’s front World Showcase entrance, it’s halfway around the World Showcase lagoon. Check out the complete guide to this pavilion HERE.

We announced a refurbishment for The American Adventure show HERE. At the American Adventure, guests feel America’s inspiration to greatness in an inspiring retelling of America’s history.

In this dramatic attraction featuring 35 Audio-Animatronics figures, digital rear-projection images on a 72-foot screen, and patriotic songs, you’ll watch as America’s story unfolds.

The American Adventure show closed on September 19, 2022.  In October Disney announced a reopening date of December 18. However, it didn’t open then and Disney gave a second reopening date of December 19.

Guests were once again disappointed if they visited the American Adventure attraction on December 19 because it didn’t open. At that time the Disney refurbishment calendar showed no reopening date through February 27, 2023. (That’s as far as this calendar went.)

Less than a week later, The American Adventure opened though! That’s right! If you’re at EPCOT, you can see the show finally because it’s open now.

The American Adventure attraction is finally open again!
