Gather ’round Theme Park Fanatics, because we’re about to embark on a whimsical journey through the magical land of Disney World! But hold your Mickey ears, because there are a few things you need to know before you jet off to this wonderland. Disney World can sometimes be like that flaky friend who changes plans at the last minute. So, brace yourselves, ’cause here are four things you absolutely won’t be able to do at Disney during June…
According to All Ears, you won’t be able to go to the Boneyard at Animal Kingdom. Picture this: a play area where kids can unleash their boundless energy, running around like little dynamos. Sounds like heaven, right? Well, hold your pixie dust, ’cause this magical haven is closed for a lengthy refurbishment until June 13th. But don’t fret, my friends, if you’re lucky enough to visit later in the month, you’ll be granted the pleasure of watching your little ones go absolutely bonkers in this dino-themed wonderland. Roar-some!
Next on our Disney do-not list is the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Now, this delightful stage show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been closed since the infamous 2020 closures. Can you believe it? Ariel and her underwater gang have been keeping their singing voices on mute for far too long. Disney, in their infinite wisdom – or lack thereof – has yet to announce if and when these fishy fellows will be back to entertain us with their aquatic antics. Let’s cross our fins and hope it’s soon, or else we might have to stage a fishy protest. Don’t underestimate the power of determined mermaid enthusiasts!
Now, let’s splash into the world of water parks. Typhoon Lagoon, the wet and wild wonderland, reopened its gates in March, much to the delight of water-loving folks. But here’s the catch: its snowy cousin, Blizzard Beach, decided to take a break for a little refurbishment. So, if you were hoping to make a splash at Blizzard Beach in June, I regret to inform you that it’s currently closed with no reopening date in sight. Looks like we’ll have to endure the summer heat the old-fashioned way: by sweating like pigs in a sauna. Ah, the joy!
Last but certainly not least, we have the beloved Splash Mountain. This log-flume ride closed its doors in January 2023 and won’t be reopening until late 2024. But hold on to your mouse ears, my adventurous amigos, because when it finally reopens, it’ll be transformed into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, inspired by the enchanting movie “The Princess and the Frog.” Just imagine sailing through the bayou, surrounded by singing frogs and twinkling fireflies. It’s a whole new world of magic! Well, here’s the catch, folks: you’ll have to wait a bit longer for that epic adventure, as the new ride won’t be open until 2024. Patience, my friends, patience.
So, there you have it, my fellow Disney enthusiasts. If you’re planning a trip to the magical kingdom in June, be prepared for a few closures and refurbishments. But fear not, for there’s still plenty of magic to be found in those hallowed theme parks. So grab that mouse-shaped ice cream bar, slap on your biggest grin, and enjoy the ride!
