Refurbishments are a part of life at Walt Disney World. It’s not uncommon for at least one attraction to be closed at any given time. Restaurants, hotels, and other areas of the property also need freshened up for optimal guest enjoyment.

Refurbishments may take place for various reasons. Whether it be for mechanical issues or cosmetic updates, a refurbishment can take place for many reasons. Based on the nature of the work, the refurbishment may be a few days or several months.

When it comes to hotels it is important to know the difference between a hard and soft good refurbishment. A “hard-goods” refurbishment is replacing anything from furnishings, fixtures, furniture, and appliances. A “soft-goods” refurbishment is all things soft, so items like linens, throw pillows and drapes.
