Magic Kingdom to Begin 2017 with Some Refurbishments

The Liberty Square Riverboat at the Magic Kingdom will be the first to close when it shuts down for its annual refurbishment.

The attraction is scheduled to be closed from January 3rd through January 12th of 2017.

The Magic Kingdom’s Walt Disney World Railroad will also be closed for refurbishment in early 2017.

The refurbishment of the railroad will begin on January 9th and last through to February 16th.

As what usually happens when the United States elects a new president, The Hall of Presidents will be closing for a long refurbishment, which will presumably see the show updated to include the new president.

The closure is planned to begin on January 17th and last until June 29th.

The last time there was an election that gave the country a new president, in 2008, the attraction was closed for 8 months that involved installation of Barack Obama and a rework of the show.
