Every Disney ride and attraction needs to undergo routine closures for maintenance and refurbishment, but so does the Parks transportation.

Whether Guests choose to go to the Walt Disney World Resort or the Disneyland Resort, they know they are in for the ultimate Disney experience. Whether because of attractions like Haunted Mansion or Indiana Jones Adventure, or rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Disneyland Park (some of which are also found in the Central Florida Disney Resort Theme Park, Magic Kingdom), Disney fans from all over the world have to come to expect a certain quality of offering from their Disney vacation.

In order to maintain the quality of experience they provide, and of course, to account for the safety and security of the Guests who visit the Parks, every attraction, ride, and even the various modes of transportation need to undergo consistent maintenance and when necessary, routinely close for refurbishment.

In that vein, journalist Scott Gustin took to Twitter to share news of one closure and one reopening for offerings at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Southern California.

As Gustin details in March of this year, “The Disneyland Monorail will be closed for refurbishment;” from March 20-23. The monorail will reopen on March 24.

Additionally, Gustin also reported that Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure Park, which has been closed since January, will reopen on March 17.

More on the Disneyland Monorail

As Disney Fanatics know, the Disneyland Monorail system was the first of its kind of transportation when it opened in the US. The contemporary version that fans see today in Disney Park combines the “sleek styling of the 1959 classic with new technologies and subtle design changes.” It brings a “retro-futuristic look and contemporary feel” to this iconic Disneyland ride.

It is also found in the Walt Disney World Resort, and the Tokyo Disney Resort has its own version of the Monorail, called the Disney Resort Line.
