Big Thunder Ranch BBQ, Big Thunder Ranch Petting Zoo, and Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular will all be closing permanently. Attractions on the Rivers of America such as Fantasmic!, the Disneyland Railroad, the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes, and more will be closing for at least a year. There will also be seasonal closures for refurbishments that will be much shorter in length.
