WDW Refurb Update: Splash Mountain Closure in 2013

It should come as no surprise, but now the official Walt Disney World Resort website has been updated to advise that Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland will be closing for its nearly-annual slow season refurbishment beginning on February 3, 2013 January 4, 2013 and re-opening on March 21.

In other news, while the official site still shows a tentative re-opening date for Test Track at Epcot, the Disney Parks blog has reported that it will re-open on December 6, 2012, the same day that New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom will have its grand opening.

  1. disneyworld.com has different dates posted
    Splash Mountain – Closed For Refurbishment [ Friday, February 01 – Tuesday, March 19 ]

  2. I am surprised that it was only 24 hours after you listed the update about the Splash Mountain being closed in February, that it then changed to January? Disney must have inverted the numbers from being 2/1 close instead of the 1/2 that it is now, correct? Guest services has no answers, but obviously they didn’t release it as February for an initial posting, and then figured out like 18 hours later that it was actually January? That can’t be a change due to logistics, was it just an error? It really got our hopes up as we were traveling in January, and just curious what may have happened there where the disconnect was???
