    Hello. When the attraction "mountain of thunder" is expected to open after the refurbishment? Thank you very much!

    Hello Andri,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to planDisney with your question! We're always here to help sprinkle a little extra pixie dust on your Disney planning. It’s heartwarming to see your enthusiasm for one of Disney's most beloved attractions, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

    I'm pleased to share that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom underwent a quick refurbishment in January of this year but is now thrilling guests once again with its wild and rollicking ride through a haunted gold-mining town. Disney is committed to ensuring that each guest's experience is not just enjoyable but truly magical, which occasionally necessitates brief closures for enhancements and maintenance.

    For the most current information regarding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, including any unexpected adjustments to its operation, I strongly recommend visiting the ride's page on the official Disney Parks website or through the My Disney Experience app. These platforms are continuously updated, providing real-time information on attraction statuses, wait times, and more, ensuring you have the most accurate details for your visit.

    It's important to remember that attractions at Walt Disney World can close for unplanned maintenance issues at any time. These temporary closures are in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests, a testament to Disney's unwavering dedication to excellence. While it might be disappointing if your favorite ride is temporarily unavailable, it's an opportunity to explore the many other magical experiences each park has to offer.

    To enhance your upcoming visit, here's a tip regarding the Disney Genie+ service. This innovative service is an excellent way to make the most of your day in the parks. By taking advantage of Lightning Lane access to select attractions, you can significantly reduce your wait times. Start your day by booking a Lightning Lane selection for your must-do attraction as soon as you arrive at the park. Once you've redeemed your first selection, you'll be eligible to make another, helping you to experience even more of the magic with less waiting.

    Thank you for turning to planDisney for your planning needs. Your excitement for the magic of Disney is what keeps the dream alive for all of us here. Should you have any more questions or require additional assistance as you prepare for an enchanting visit, please feel free to reach out. May your upcoming Disney adventure be filled with joy, laughter, and countless magical moments.

    Warm wishes,
