Tokyo Disney Resort Ride Closures 2019


One of the most important things about trip planning is knowing the Tokyo Disneyland ride closures. Traveling all the way to Tokyo Disneyland to only find out Pooh’s Hunny Hunt is closed is the worst feeling. Or, that stomach dropping devastation when you see Journey to the Center of the Earth is under refurbishment.

This is where our Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea ride closures calendar comes in handy. It’ll help you make sure you don’t accidentally plan a trip on a day where an attraction or show is closed.

This is a list of Tokyo Disney Resort ride closures for 2018 & 2019 (including entertainment). Always double check the official website for the most up-to-date information and is subject to change without notice.

Finally, keep in mind that Tokyo Disney Resort sticks to this schedule, which means you won’t see attractions open before the date indicated.

    Chris, if you had the option of travel in April 2019 when Pooh’s Honey Hunt is closed, or May when Critter Country and most of Westernland is closed, which would you choose (with both potential travel periods mid week and avoiding peak times).

  2. Marianne

    Is that a single day that the Country Bear Jamboree is closed, or a closed indefinitely? Please say the former! I would cry if we lost the TDR bears!
