At Disney, the rides change often! As Walt Disney once said, Disneyland will never be complete, and now that there are other theme parks that have expanded into the Disney park universe, that sentiment rings true for all. Disney often looks for ways to improve its attractions. Sometimes that means removing them completely and replacing them with something new. We saw it with A Bug’s Land in Disney California Adventure. The land was awesome, but by removing it, the park was able to include the very first Avengers campus. This is just one example among many others. Other times, the rides will undergo renovations to address operational issues as well as cosmetic issues.

When a ride is being renovated, the only downside is that it is often closed for a long time. Recently, we noticed that an attraction had extended its renovation deadline by several months!

At Tokyo Disney, we recently covered all of the rides that will be closed for the rest of this month. Below you can see the full list.

  • Swiss Family Treehouse
  • “the world is small”
  • Pooh’s Honey Hunt
  • The Enchanted Tiki Room: Stitch Presents “Aloha E Komo Mai!”
  • The Adventures of Snow White
  • Mark Twain Riverboat
  • Big city vehicles
  • Stronghold explorations
  • Jasmine’s Flying Carpets
  • Ariel’s Playground
  • Mermaid Lagoon Theater (King Triton’s Concert)

Originally, Swiss Family Treehouse was supposed to be closed until April 30, but now the site has pushed that date back to August 1, 2022. We don’t know why this delay happened, but it’s always good to know he does to avoid disappointment and facilitate planning. Disney describes the attraction as follows: “Based on the 1960 Disney film Swiss Family Robinson, the imposing family treehouse of the Robinson family is recreated here. You can see how they lived in this unique house built into a tree of 19 meters high.

At Disneyland Resort, the tree house that stands in Disneyland Park will undergo a new theme!

Tarzan’s Treehouse is closed to visitors as it has been under construction since September 2021, which is longer than regular or seasonal renovations. Now the ongoing closure makes sense as Disneyland officials announced today that they will be reimagining Tarzan’s treehouse in Adventureland with a new theme and story, but the treehouse experience in the trees is not disappearing, according to Disneyland officials.

CO register reported the news stating:

Tarzan will soon emerge from his tree house at Disneyland to make way for a re-themed attraction that will see a new Disney character move into the 80-foot-tall man-made tree at Adventureland.

As we previously noted, Tokyo Disney Resort recently made a push towards inclusivity at its parks when the Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights returned to the park with a new welcome message that removes all gendered language. The parade’s triumphant return saw the Disney magic spill across the lands and around Cinderella’s Castle during the nightly spectacle. The Resort theme park currently has an active COVID-19 passport mandate for guests and cast members.

The Oriental Land Company, in association with The Walt Disney Company, opened Tokyo Disneyland in 1983 as the first Disney park outside the United States. The Urayasu theme park, Chiba would eventually be joined by a second gate, Tokyo DisneySea, and a shopping complex, Ikspiari.
