Kali River Rapids Reopening From LONG Refurbishment in March 2023

Kali River Rapids in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is closing on January 9 for a long refurbishment. We now know when the ride will reopen for guests to once again enjoy getting soaked.

Kali River Rapids closes every January for an annual refurbishment. This year, the attraction will close on January 9 and reopen on March 17, 2023. Just in time for some Spring Break guests!

Raft Down a Rip-Roaring River
Skim across an erupting geyser, drift below a canopy of lush vegetation and be whisked along fast-moving rapids. Graze gushing waterfalls and bedrock amid the raging current. Then, as the harmony of nature is disrupted, you’ll plummet down a dramatic 20-foot slope!

You Will Get Wet
You will surely get splashed on this attraction—and you may even get soaked. Guests wishing to remain dry are encouraged to bring a waterproof poncho, extra clothes or a towel to dry off.

Lockers for mobile devices and other items you want to stay dry are located across from the entrance to Kali River Rapids and are available during your ride (on a first-come, first-served basis).

Will you be getting in line as soon as Kali River Rapids reopens?
