September Refurbishments

Disney is always evolving, always changing. Walt Disney once said "Disneyland will never be completed. ... It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." I imagine the same rule applies for Walt Disney World.  And with new growth comes refurbishments. So here is the current list of refurbishments at Walt Disney World for the month of September. 

(If there is a ** before the refurbishment this is a new listing from the prior month).
