Walt Disney World: August Refurbishment List

Welcome to August! I know I'm a little late - kids are already going back to school and I'm already thinking of Fall, Halloween and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Even though it is still officially summer.  But in Florida (and most of the Central US), it is still summer and the Awaken Summer celebration is still going full swing at Walt Disney World! So I won't try to rush into fall too quickly - but I make no promises.

For the month of August here is the list of currently-happening refurbishment occurring at Walt Disney World (current as of 8/18):


  • Monorail: Undergoing refurbishment through Summer 2016.  Monorail may be on modified service and/or routes. Before you plan on using the Monorail, make sure it is the best option available, as alternative transportation options will be available.
  •  Swiss Family Tree House: Scheduled to Reopen September 24, 2016
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad: Scheduled to Reopen November 18, 2016
  • “it’s a small world”: Closing August 22. Scheduled to Reopen September 15. 

No refurbishments scheduled.

  • Pizza Planet: Undergoing refurbishment to become PizzeRizzo.  Scheduled to Reopen “Late 2016.”
  • MuppetVision 3D: Closed August 15th. Scheduled to Reopen August 22, 2016.

  • DINOSAUR: Scheduled to Reopen October 16, 2016
  • Dino Institute Shop: Scheduled to Reopen October 16, 2016 

  • Planet Hollywood: Scheduled to Reopen “Fall 2016”
  • Fulton’s Crab House (reopening as Paddlefish): Scheduled to Reopen “Fall 2016”


Other than Big Thunder Mountain Rail Road being out of commission for quite a few months and the Wilderness Lodge "great-remodel", not too much is going on. What are you thoughts of what is being refurbished?
