BREAKING: Another Splash Mountain Refurbishment Set for 2018 at the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Despite currently being closed through November 16th, 2017, Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom will be closing again for refurbishment in early 2018.

The second refurbishment will take place January 8th through February 1st, 2018. The reasoning for this second closure is unknown, but may be related to some leftover work that can’t be completed during this ongoing refurbishment. The Magic Kingdom would want the attraction open again for the busy holiday season, thus why it will still reopening in November but going down once more in January.

This information was distributed today to Disney travel agents.

I called Disney yesterday, 11/1/17, and asked about this because our family will be at WDW during mid January. Disney said emphatically that Splash Mountain will NOT be closed during January 2018. She said rumors like this occur all the time.
