    Hello! We are planning a trip to WDW in February or March, and we want to be able to ride Splash Mountain! Do we know the refurbishment dates please? We've missed it our last two trips!

    Hiya, Kristen. Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for dropping by to chit-chat about your Walt Disney World vacation plans. 

    Kristen, it's a bummer that you've missed Splash Mountain on your last few trips to Walt Disney World. It was recently closed for a quick refurbishment which is probably why you missed it last time. I love classic attractions at Walt Disney World, however, I am super excited about the retheming of this attraction. Princess and the Frog is such a great movie and it's going to be such a great fit. Right now, we don't know the exact date that Splash Mountain is set to close. I think an announcement will come probably in early fall at the D23 Expo which is held in September. That's always when we find out a lot of information about the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. We do know that the newly themed attraction is set to open sometime in 2024 and probably will be a lengthy process. When announcements are made about this timeline, Kristen, you'll be able to find all of the details over on the Disney Parks Blog so be sure to keep an eye out over there. If I had to take a guess, and it's only just a guess, I would think that it would probably be closed by your travel dates next year. However, I don't have anything to base that on - just a hunch. 

    If you'd like to be sure to get one last ride in before the retheming maybe you can plan a quick weekend getaway sometime this summer. I've done Disney in a day before and it was such a fun memory. There are some budget airlines that fly in and out of Orlando that offer some pretty affordable flights. 

    I hope you are able to enjoy one of your favorites one last time, Kristen. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
