New Walt Disney World Refurbishment List…Well, Maybe?

For a brief moment Walt Disney World updated their online refurbishment list for travel agents…and then it was pulled. So, was it simply leaked too soon?

Well, that remains to be seen. But, for those advance planners out there – here’s what was temporarily posted online – and could reappear at anytime, or be altered. To note – all three of the Magic Kingdom mountains appear to be slated for some sort of rehab in 2016.
