Magic Eye Theater / Tomorrowland Theater / Starcade

The Tomorrowland Theater, formerly the Magic Eye Theater, is now closed following the latest 3D preview of the theatrical release, 'Tomorrowland'.

The Starcade is also closed.

No announcements have been made although an extended preview for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII release is expected. 

Originally brought back in 2010 following his untimely death, the Michael Jackson 3D adventure Captain EO, closed in June 2014. The Theater has since been used to house 4D sneak peeks of Disney's upcoming films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, and Tomorrowland. It is not clear if Captain EO will return.

* December 31st is a placeholder - no reopening dates have yet been announced.

Disney has confirmed earlier rumors that Luigi's Flying Tires in Cars Land will close on February 17, 2015. The attraction will be reworked, possibly into a trackless interactive ride system, and will reopen in "early 2016".

In July 2015 Disney released the following description for Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters, the replacement attraction for Luigi's Flying Tires: 

Luigi has invited all of his cugini (cousins) from his hometown of Carsoli, Italy, to visit his Casa della Tires. To help celebrate Race Day in Radiator Springs, they will demonstrate the dances of their village with Cars Land guests when the all-new Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters opens early next year.

Innoventions / Star Wars Launch Bay / Marvel

Innoventions closed at Disneyland on March 31st, it will reopen as Star Wars Launch Bay on the lower level and an expanded Marvel Universe meet and greet on the upper level. An opening date has not yet been released, however we expect Star Wars Launch Bay to open before the first of 2016 when Disneyland kicks off "Seasons of the Force", or possibly ahead of December's release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Read more about Star Wars Launch Bay, Seasons of the Force and the upcoming construction of Star Wars Land at Disneyland.

Officially, there is NO OPENING DATE for Innoventions. December 31st is a placeholder which could change at any time. We also expect a name change for Innoventions announced in the near future.

All of Critter Country

Splash Mountain, the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes, The Hungry Bear Restaurant, and Pooh Corner, Briar Patch and Professor Barnaby Owl's Photographic Studio will all be closed beginning January 12th. 

Exact reopening date is not yet known.

See the individual attraction listings for more specific dates.

The last time all of Critter Country closed was in December of 2011. Disney feels it is best to close the entire area when both Splash Mountain and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh close at the same time.

Here is a photo from that closure:

Soarin' Over California will close at Disney California Adventure from January through May 2015. The attraction will receive a 4K projector digital upgrade and new screens. Soarin' Over California is original to the 2001 opening of California Adventure and the current projection technology appears very dated. 

During the refurbishment all of Condor Flats will close to facilitate the transformation of the land to the 'Grizzly Peak Airfield'.
