Disneyland ride and attraction closings and refurbishments from January to June 2018

(Note: Updated April 30, 2018)

Change is rampant at Disneyland.

Not only is there major construction in Disneyland, with the building of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but there has been a lot of construction at California Adventure with makeover for Pixar Pier.

Starting Jan. 8, 2018, rides and attractions at Paradise Pier will close as it is re-themed into Pixar Pier. The means the creations of four new “neighborhoods” and a major re-theming of California Screamin’ into an Incredibles roller coaster called the Incredicoaster. This should all re-open on June 23, 2018.
