Magic Eye Theater - Captain EO

Originally brought back in 2010 following his untimely death, the Michael Jackson 3D adventure Captain EO, closed in June 2014. The Magic Eye Theater has since been used to house 4D sneak peeks of Disney's upcoming films such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6.

The Magic Eye Theater is set to close again on January 5, 2015 to remove the Big Hero 6 preview which has been housed in the theater since September 25, 2014. It is not yet clear if Captain EO will return, nor is it yet known when the theater will reopen.

Soarin' Over California

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'.

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:

Luigi's Flying Tires

It is rumored that Luigi's Flying Tires in Cars Land may be replaced after the attraction has failed to meet expectations

At this point in time Disney has not officially made any announcements regarding the possibility of replacing Luigi's Flying Tires, however, this nearly year-long closure would suggest that the original Cars Land attraction may be getting a replacement.
