It’s that time of year again when the January/February refurbishments start trickling out.
The House of Innoventions at Epcot closed today. Live vicariously here if you missed it. If it makes you feel better, you really didn’t miss much unless you’re in the market for a new grill or something. The area is expected to reopen as the “VISION House” in May 2012. Full press release available here.
Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom will be closed for refurbishment from Monday January 23rd 2012 through Thursday February 9th. It is expected to reopen on Friday February 10th. If you’re crestfallen over this announcement, I do have a way that you can recreate the attraction at your house. With clothes on, stand in the shower and turn it on full blast. Stand there for three minutes. Have another member of your family enter the room and turn on a chain saw intermittently. You may also want to be holding an expensive piece of electronic equipment like a camera or television to simulate loss of property. Actually, my legal team is again saying that you shouldn’t do this. Lawyers – no fun.
The Beach at the Polynesian Resort will be undergoing “sand renourishment” from January 4th through January 16th. Parts of the Beach may be inaccessible during this time.
Plaza Ice Cream Parlour at Magic Kingdom will be closed from January 9th through March 27th. It is expected to reopen on March 28th.
The Studio Backlot Tour at Hollywood Studios will be closed from February 13th through March 10th, reopening on March 11th.
The Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure at Hollywood Studios will be closed from February 13th through March 10th, reopening on March 11th.
The Tutto Italia (Italy Pavilion, Epcot) refurbishment has been extended one month and it will now be closed from January 7th through April 30th, reopening on May 1st.
