Walt Disney World Closing Children’s Activity Centers on July 31


There was a rumor that this might happen and Disney has announced that it is true. On July 31, 2018, they will close their Children’s Activity Centers:

  • Lilo’s Playhouse at  Disney’s Polynesian Village
  • Sandcastle Club at Disney’s Beach Club Resort
  • Simba’s Clubhouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

What about my reservation?

As far as we know all existing reservations will be honored, up until it’s closure.

Disney has cited declining interest and fewer guests attending as the reason for the closure.

They did indicate that they would be looking into other options in the future, but what they are we don’t know.
