A Popular Coaster Is Now CLOSED for a LONG Refurbishment in Disney World

It’s a good thing there are plenty of attractions in each Disney park because this gives guests other options when one happens to close.

We see plenty of unexpected closures, like when a ride suddenly breaks down due to technical issues, but these are often fixed the same day. Attractions see a lot of daily use though, so sometimes they need to close for extended periods of time to allow Disney’s teams to do some maintenance. These fixes take a bit longer and one ride has just CLOSED as part of an extended maintenance closure in Disney World.

Back in December, Disney announced that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster would be closing on February 20th, 2023, for refurbishment.

However, things didn’t go quite as planned. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster actually remained open on February 20th, and the closure was delayed to February 21st. This gave guests some extra time to get one last ride in.

Now that February 21st has finally arrived, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has in fact CLOSED for its extended refurbishment. The website does not show any operating hours for the ride today and instead indicates that the ride is closed and won’t reopen until the summer of 2023. That’s a pretty extensive closure.


Signs were up in Hollywood Studios reminding guests of the closure.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has had some rough moments in the past, with sudden closures. Back in 2022, the ride closed several times in January, April, and July. At that point (back in July of 2022), a Cast Member indicated that the ride hadn’t gotten a full refurbishment since Disney World reopened following the COVID-19-related closures, which could explain why it experienced so many issues.

Hopefully, this refurbishment can help cut down potential issues in the future with this ride. Again, note that an exact reopening date for the ride has not been shared, but it is expected to open sometime in the summer this year.
