June, July, August, September… and now, possibly October. We are now going on month three of no Primeval Whirl at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The attraction never opened on June 17th, 2019 and it has yet to reopen to this day, despite various announcements claiming it would, eventually, reopen.
The only reason given so far for the attraction’s closure is that it’s “due to unexpected and unscheduled maintenance.” But sometimes, you just have a feeling, a hunch…

Many of our readers have reported in as having received cancellation emails for their Primeval Whirl FastPasses. Mind you, these are FastPasses scheduled well into October:

The last official extended closure announcement listed September 29th as the attraction’s ultimate reopening day, but given these cancellation emails, it’s safe to say that the dinos won’t be whirling into October, either.
Those with existing Primeval Whirl FastPasses are being automatically given DINOSAUR FastPasses during their originally chosen time slot. (Do note that this has varied. At times, a Multiple Experience FastPass has been issued for an attraction in the same tier.)
The official Walt Disney World Primeval Whirl attraction page currently lists no official announcement regarding any issues with the attraction.
