On Sale Now- The Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction Special from WDW Magazine!

Here’s your round-up of March 2022 Disney World refurbishments for closed attractions and resorts. 

If you’re planning on visiting Walt Disney World (WDW) to make the first month of the spring one of the best, you’ll want to know what isn’t going to be up and running during your trip.

But you won’t have to guess what’ll be open and temporarily closed in March! Each month, we compile a list of everything scheduled to undergo refurbishment in the month ahead.

March is a pretty light month for refurbishments! If you weren’t already planning on visiting, don’t forget that the 2022 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival begins on March 2.

Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World Railroad: WDW Railroad is still closed as construction carries on for TRON Lightcycle / Power Run. Word is that it’ll be chugging along again by the summer.

The Chapeau: Expect The Chapeau to stay closed for the rest of 2022. Until it reopens, Box Office Gifts at the Town Square Theater is the temporary go-to for mouse ears and Bonjour! Village Gifts has commemorative gifts and artwork.

The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: Heads up! From March 1 on, there will be some construction and refurbishment taking place during the day at The Villas. It shouldn’t impact your daily enjoyment of the resort, and it’s all leading up to a grand expansion.

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort: Flippin’ Fins Pool is flippin’ open again, but maintenance is now underway at Cozy Cone Pool. Cozy Cone should be back in action by April.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas ­– Kidani Village: The Samawati Springs Pool remains closed for refurbishment and should reopen in April.

Rides close often for regular service and maintenance, so any unexpected closures will likely only last for a short while. If nothing else, it’s just another excuse to come back and experience the magic again.
