Kali River Refurbishment

Kali River Rapids in the Animal Kingdom will be closing for its annual refurbishment.  Slated to begin Monday, January 7th, the refurbishment will continue through mid-March.  After a busy holiday season, Disney tends to close the popular water ride. Work will begin to maintain operational functions and give some attention to areas of wear.

Kali River Rapids is a whitewater raft ride down the Chakrandi River in India.  Guests board a 12-person raft and set adrift down the river, passing temple ruins and Indian countryside. Kali Rapids Expeditions guides your tour through a canopy of trees and nearby waterfalls, before plunging down a 20-foot decline – splashing down at the bottom.  You WILL get wet!

Since no one is having fun when they are wet AND cold, closing at this time of year makes sense for a ride that leaves its patrons sopping wet. It’s the perfect attraction to ride on those hot and humid Florida afternoons.

Late Winter is a popular time for refurbishments and closures around Walt Disney World.  Check out our refurbishment list for January to read the latest on what’s closed or closing.
