Critter Country Temporarily Closing at Disneyland Park

Critter Country at Disneyland Park is closing temporarily beginning May 1, 2024. The area is closing as Disney finishes Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, rethemes shops, and updates guest pathways.

Disney created a new page on the Disneyland website explaining the changes during the temporary closure. A reopening date wasn’t announced at this time. Highlights can be found below:

  • Work is continuing on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. No official opening date has been announced.
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction will be closed while work is performed in the land.
  • The Briar Patch shop will be rethemed into a new store called Ray’s Berets.
  • Pooh Corner shop will be split into two with one side becoming Louis’ Critter Club and the other side remaining a home for all things Winnie the Pooh.
  • Hungry Bear Restaurant will remain open while Critter Country is closed and can be accessed via Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

It’s possible we’ll see some walkway and landscaping changes while Critter Country is closed, but we believe the majority of that work will take place in New Orleans Square.
