Know Before You Go- Updated Walt Disney World Refurb/Closings List


If there was one thing us Disney fans took away from the D23 Expo, it’s that there’s so many new and exciting things coming to Disney Parks- especially Walt Disney World. The Magic Kingdom is still going through major construction with the building of the Tron Coaster, Epcot is finally getting the re-imagination it’s been needing (and deserves), and preparations are well under way for Walt Disney World’s 50th Birthday Celebration!
