Kali River Rapids Reopens After Annual Refurbishment

Just in time for the spring break season, Kali River Rapids has reopened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! The attraction was closed for its annual refurbishment and is once again welcoming guests.

The renovation commenced on January 8, 2024, concluding on March 16, 2024. Presently, operating hours are from 9 am to 7 pm.

The Disney World website describes the attraction as:

“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 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).
