Magic Kingdom Transportation Refurbishments Scheduled for Walt Disney World

Walt Disney loved various modes of transportation.  That is why there is a railroad and a riverboat at the Magic Kingdom.  Both are scheduled for refurbishments in the coming months.  The Walt Disney World Railroad will be closed January 9 – February 16, re-opening on February 17.  The Liberty Square Riverboat will be closed January 3 – January 12, re-opening on January 13.  While these are not major attractions as the park, they do hold a piece of nostalgia and we will all look forward to their return to operation.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
