Magic Kingdom’s Astro Orbiter Down for Maintenance

Last week the Astro Orbiter closed down for unscheduled maintenance and now Disney had updated their website and app to reflect this.

The current re-opening date is August 15th, as long as nothing else changes.

Please keep this in mind for your travel plans if you are heading to the Magic Kingdom before 8/15.

Right now there are a lot of changes going on in Tomorrowland, including a new sign that will be coming to replace the old one. Other sites hypothesized that while it is down the attraction could be repainted to reflect the new color scheme being added to the area? It makes sense to do that now since the attraction is already down. Time will tell!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
