Refurbishment Scheduled for Kali River Rapids Starting January 7, 2019

Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be closing for refurbishment in early 2019. This typically occurs annually, as temperatures drop in Florida.

Kali River Rapids is scheduled to be down from January 7, 2019 until March 22, 2019. It will reopen to guests on March 23, 2019, just in time for the busier spring season.

As you plan your trip for next year, it’s also important to note that both the Walt Disney World Railroad and the Tomorrowland Speedway are also temporarily closed to accommodate construction on the Tron coaster.

I have mixed feelings about this announcement! On the one hand I love spraying people with the elephants, but in the other hand, I don’t have to pack the ponchos haha!
