Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Closing in June for Refurbishment

    According to the Walt Disney World website, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be closing for refurbishment in June 2021. The attraction will be closed from June 7 to June 12, 2021. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will reopen to guests on June 13, 2021.

    Disney has not announced what work will be completed during the refurbishment, but with such a short closure, we don’t expect the work to be significant.

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was originally expected to close from May 4 to May 21, 2020, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    1. Recent videos showed that the water falls were off on the first hill. I think the last dip water effect was also missing. Seemed like it needed some TLC throughout

    2. Seems odd to close in the middle of June on such a high capacity ride with limited offerings. Is this a sign of more items and shows to open up by this time frame?
