    Hi! Do you know if the Kali River Rapids in Animal Kingdom will be open next January and February?

    Welcome to planDisney, Claude!

    Kali River Rapids is such a great ride! My wife and I love going on this attraction during those hot summer days. It's the best way to cool off at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! I even enjoy going on it during the winter (although I'm not sure Florida's "winter" counts as winter). However, I usually make it the last ride of the day so I'm not cold and wet for hours. I'm excited to take my daughter on Kali River Rapids for the first time this Spring. Adventure is out there!

    Claude, Disney has not publically revealed any plans to close Kali River Rapids for refurbishment in the near future. However, looking back at previous years, this attraction often closes for refurbishment in January - March. Therefore, it's very possible that Kali River Rapids will be closed during your visit. However, as I said, nothing has been announced yet. So let's be wishing upon a star that it'll be open by the time you arrive. 

    Claude, whatever happens, I trust you'll have a fantastic time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Make sure you watch Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond! This brilliant show will have you grinning from EAR to EAR and singing the catchy songs for the rest of your trip.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Calude!
