Disney’s Liberty Square Riverboat & Tom Sawyer Island Months-Long Closure Extended

Well, Disney fans, if you’re headed to Magic Kingdom in the next several months, you’ll want to be sure to cross Liberty Square Riverboat and Tom Sawyer Island off your to-do list as they are both currently closed for refurbishment. Previously listed as “Closed for Refurbishment” through January 2, 2021, these two attractions are now showing closure through February 28, 2021.



While there is currently no official end date from Disney for the refurbishment, we can follow along with the My Disney Experience App and see both Liberty Square Riverboat and Tom Sawyer Island are listed under “Closed for Refurbishment” until March 1, 2021 when they are removed from the list. Of course, this doesn’t mean Disney can’t extend that date, but they are giving a clear sign that the refurbishment will in fact take several months.

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.
