Watch out! There are a few closures in Disney World that might put a dent in your vacation plans.
Let’s check out all of the temporary closures that will affect the Disney World parks and hotels from November 19th through the 25th.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
Splash Mountain closed on January 23rd, and it’ll remain closed until late 2024.
Disney is re-theming the ride to give it a Princess and the Frog theme. When it reopens, it’ll be called Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
On a recent trip, we spotted the new “Tiana’s Foods” water tower up in front of the ride. We’ll keep an eye out for more updates.

Barrel Bridge at Tom Sawyer Island
Over on Tom Sawyer Island, the barrel bridge is currently closed. In fact, it’s missing completely!
A Cast Member told us that the bridge had been removed for refurbishments, and they’re not sure when it might be back. The bridge disappeared several months ago, but we’re still hoping that it might be back before the end of this year! We’ll be sure to let you know about any updates.
Tomorrowland Terrace in Magic Kingdom has only ever been open occasionally, usually during particularly busy seasons. However, it’s been a LONG time since we’ve seen this spot open!
Currently, it’s only used for Magic Kingdom dessert parties.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Voyage of the Little Mermaid
The Barrel Bridge might return by the end of 2023, but we have less hope for the Voyage of the Little Mermaid stage show in Hollywood Studios.
This show has been closed for a LONG time — since the pandemic-related closures of 2020, in fact. Disney hasn’t announced that the show is permanently closed, but they also haven’t given any updates about a possible reopening. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it could return soon!
Don’t Waste Your Money at These Hollywood Studios Restaurants
Restaurant Marrakesh is kind of closed and kind of not.
The restaurant is technically open, but just as a lounge (not as an actual restaurant). We’re still waiting for the full experience to return!

1900 Park Fare
1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is a character meal that’s been closed for a couple of years now.
We’re still waiting to hear more about this spot! In the meantime, a new afternoon tea service is going to open in early 2024, when The Cake Bake Shop opens on the Boardwalk.
