PHOTOS: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Now Closed for Refurbishment at Magic Kingdom

As we reported it would last month, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom is now closed for refurbishment.


The entrances and exits are blocked off and a Cast Member stood outside to answer questions.


According to signs, there’s been a mountain goat infestation at the mine.

  1. Awesome disney.
    Hot.. can’t take off your mask in AC
    Cast members cranky
    Bus shortage
    No fireworks
    Many restaurants closed
    Now rides shutting down.
    But hey… pay full price!!!

    1. It suck even worse for AP holders. They treat us terrible also. Can’t get reservations to get into the parks. The only open up scraps at 2pm for us.

  2. It would seems that the people that over sees Disney’s operations would give price breaks because of so much that’s happening or not happening, but in the same breath they aren’t in it for the families it’s ALL business and that’s what matters most.

  3. Was at Disney World in April. Everyone was friendly and nice. No mask walking around was great. Will be better as everything opens back up. Be friendly and people will be nice.
