2023 WDW Magazine Wall Calendar- Featuring Disney Castles of the World! On Sale Now!

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

If you’re planning on visiting Walt Disney World (WDW) in September, 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 September! Each month, we compile a list of everything scheduled to undergo refurbishment in the month ahead.

Not much to worry about if you’re visiting in September as there’s a very light refurbishment schedule. Don’t forget that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is in full swing as we enter the Halloween season.

September 2022 Disney World Refurbishments

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.
