The popular attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is set to close for a relatively short refurbishment in the new year.

The refurbishment which is set to last just over a month will be happening from January 5 and will last until February 11 with the attraction reopening to guests on February 12.

It makes sense for Disney to work on refurbishment of this attraction during the winter months, all outdoor water based attractions tend to be a bit quieter this time of year.

While it isn’t impossible, I wouldn’t expect to see anything major come from this refurb, it is likely just water changes and repainting of elements of the attraction and queue.
