Disney’s Animal Kingdom Attraction Closing for Refurbishment

June has arrived and Walt Disney World Resort is brimming with excited Guests filling the Parks. Whether you’ve planned a Disney vacation to celebrate the kids being out of school for the summer, spoiling Dad for the upcoming Father’s Day, or heading to EPCOT to experience the incredible new coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind… it’s always a good time to be in a Disney Park! As we roll through June however, take note as Disney has added an attraction to the refurbishment list.

We previously shared June 2022 refurbishments including closures such as Blizzard Beach Water Park and Magic Kingdom’s Walt Disney World Railroad. While it wasn’t too long ago that Disney’s Animal Kingdom had the lengthy closure of Expedition Everest in early 2022, the popular rollercoaster is back up and running. As you stroll on over to Animal Kingdom’s DinoLand U.S.A., TriceraTop Spin will soon be closing for refurbishment.

Disney has announced the dinosaur version of Dumbo the Flying Elephant called TriceraTop spin is closing for a week-long refurbishment from Monday, June 13 to Friday, June 17, 2022. With Primeval Whirl being closed and demolished from the Disney Park, DinoLand U.S.A. has been feeling extremely empty. The week of June 13 – June 17 will be an especially quiet one for this portion of the Park.

Disney describes TriceraTop Spin as “A Dino Ride in the Sky”: Climb into a 4-person triceratops gondola and prepare for liftoff! Bob up and down, forward and back, as you sail through the air to festive music. Don’t be surprised if something prehistoric appears from the giant crown in the center of the top. Designed for little ones and the young-at-heart, TriceraTop Spin is a blast from the prehistoric past.

How High Will You Fly? If you’re seated in the back row, you can direct how high or low you fly by moving an onboard lever up or down. If you’re sitting in the front row, maneuvering a joystick will tip your dinosaur forward or backward.

We suspect those sweet dinosaurs will once again be flying high soon enough!

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
