We talk pretty often about how unexpected problems can affect your Disney World vacation.
Things like bad weather or ride refurbishments can cause issues and make it difficult to accomplish everything on your to-do list. But today, we encountered something truly unexpected — HALF of Magic Kingdom was closed in the morning!
When Magic Kingdom opened on the morning of Monday, September 18th, several attractions in the park didn’t open with it. In fact, all the rides in Adventureland, Frontierland, and Liberty Square were listed as “temporarily unavailable” in the My Disney Experience app.
With three lands completely out of commission, that means that HALF of the park was closed this morning. Because of this, the wait times for some of the attractions in Tomorrowland and Fantasyland were higher than normal.
In addition to the closures in those lands, Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid was closed, as well as the entire Walt Disney World Railroad line.
When we made it over to Adventureland to check things out, Cast Members were stationed blocking off the land. So this is more than just a rides closure — the lands themselves are actually closed!
Cast Members shared that the lands are closed for technical difficulties, with no estimated time on when they may reopen.
We’ll make sure to keep you updated as we learn more details about these closures — as of 10:15AM, all the Adventureland, Liberty Square, and Frontierland attractions are still listed as closed.
Stay tuned to DFB for the latest!
