Disney Experience to Close Indefinitely for “Major Renovation”

Walt Disney World Resort is ever-changing. With massive amounts of construction at EPCOT, a new tower planned for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and TRON Lightcycle Run still taking shape at Magic Kingdom Park, Disney Guests must learn to deal with construction walls and reimagining plans.

Change is necessary and typically Disney wows with its renovations, providing something bigger and better in place of a former Disney experience. The latest on the list of “major renovations” is Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course which is Walt Disney World’s longest golf course on property.

The championship course has piqued much interest as Disney has announced Magnolia Golf Course is closing indefinitely in May. As noted on the Disney World golf website:

“PLEASE NOTE!… During the dates of April 28, 2022 – May 8, 2022, only holes #1 – #9 will be available for play, and beginning on May 9, 2022, Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course will be closed indefinitely for a major renovation project.”

We recommend that you play at either Disney’s Palm or Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course during this timeframe as we prepare Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course for your future enjoyment! We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of this golf course and look forward to welcoming you back to the newly re-imagined Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course later this year.”

The good news is that it does sound like Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course will indeed return in 2022 after the renovations. In the meantime, if you’re still in the mood for Disney golf this summer and beyond, Disney has three other golf courses including Disney’s Palm Golf Course, Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, and Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course.

Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course is named for its stunning magnolia trees which we truly hope survive the renovation. All bunkers were renovated in the Summer of 2015, as extensive tree work and cart path repairs were completed. Now, seven years later the renovations begin again.

We will be sure to update Disney fans as we learn more about this major renovation.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
