Are you leaving for Disney World soon?
You want to make sure you are prepared for any of the closures that are taking place within the parks or resorts. Whether for construction, upgrades or other changes, Disney World will occasionally close different attractions and other things around the parks. We are analyzing all the renovations that are being carried out to see which attractions and hotels will NOT be available in November.
Let’s start by looking at the attractions and attractions on this list.
Disney World attractions closing in November
This coming month, all Disney World parks have at least one attraction that will be closed for part (if not all) of November.
In the Magic Kingdom, Mickey’s PhilharMagic is currently closed as Imagineers adds a new Disney-inspired scene Coco to the attraction.
The Disneyland version of PhilharMagic already has this new scene, so you can see a snack here:

The Disney World version of this attraction will reopen with the new scene activated November 12th of this year. So if you go down early, you might be able to catch it!
One attraction that will probably not reopen soon is the Walt Disney World Railroad.
The railroad has been closed for some time due to the construction of the TRON Lightcycle Run route in Tomorrowland that interfered with the tracks.
We don’t have a TRON opening date yet, which means we don’t know when construction will end. But we expect construction to continue (and the WDW railroad to remain closed) at least until the end of this year.
In the meantime, you can head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for a train ride through the parks that will take you to Rafiki’s Planet Watch.
Disney’s animal kingdom
Disney’s animal kingdom may have a train ride right now (unlike the magical realm), but a popular attraction is closing for a lengthy makeover. from 1 November.
Kali River Rapids will remain closed throughout November, and for the rest of this year, too.
The walk on the water will be reopen January 1, 2022. As far as we know, the closure is for routine maintenance and renovations.

EPCOT has two attractions that will also be closed for at least part of November. In the pavilion of Morocco, the Souk-al-Maghreb gift shop is currently closed.
But here’s the good news: the gift shop is scheduled to reopen November 6, which will appear soon.
He Canada everywhere the movie attraction (located in the Canada Pavilion, you guessed it) is still closed …
… As the space is used to house the Appleseed Orchard stand for this year’s International Food and Wine Festival.
The festival will end on November 20 and previously we saw the opening hours of Canada Far and Wide the next day, November 21st.
Recently, however, we checked again and saw it no time appears. So the attraction may reopen when the festival ends, but we still can’t say for sure. Disney has not announced its reopening date at the time of writing.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
He Spectacular Indiana Jones epic acrobatics has been closed at Hollywood Studios since Disney World reopened last year.
But its closing will be over soon! This attraction had a reopening date of December 19, 2021.
Tan it will remain closed throughout the month of November, but we are closer to seeing the acrobatics show again soon.

Disney World hotels closed in November
Now that Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter Resort has reopened, only one hotel remains completely closed at Disney World: Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort.
This hotel was due to reopen in December this year, but Disney announced it his return would be delayed due to further reforms.
They did not give a reopening date, however, as well All-Star Sports is closed indefinitely for now.
Another Disney World hotel that has recently reopened is Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside Resort.
While we were there, we learned Boatwright’s Dining Hall did not reopen with the complex. When we asked a cast member, they informed us the restaurant will probably open sometime in December.
So if you’re heading to Riverside early, check out one of the hotel’s other restaurants, or you can even head to Port Orleans – French Quarter for more dining options.
