Upcoming Refurbishment for Mickey Shorts Theater at Hollywood Studios

Vacation Fun Movie Screen

The Mickey Shorts Theater has become a favorite for guests eager to enjoy the Vacation Fun original short. However, it’s important for visitors to note an upcoming change in the theater’s operation schedule.

Mickey Shorts Theater Refurbishment Dates


April 29th


May 25th

The Mickey Shorts Theater is set to undergo a month-long refurbishment, temporarily pausing its operations to enhance the guest experience. This maintenance period is slated to begin on April 29, with a reopening date scheduled for May 25.

Context of Refurbishments at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Opened in early 2020, this relatively new addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is undergoing refurbishment likely focused on general maintenance tasks, such as upholstery replacement, to ensure the continued comfort and satisfaction of its guests.

Refurbishments are not uncommon at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with the park consistently updating its facilities to maintain high standards of quality. Earlier this year, the Walt Disney Theater at Walt Disney Presents also closed for a month to introduce new seating and carpeting.

Similarly, last year, Muppet*Vision 3D underwent updates that included new upholstery. The Animation Courtyard theater is also expected to be refreshed in anticipation of the new show “The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure.”


While the temporary closure of the Mickey Shorts Theater may adjust some guests’ plans, it reflects Disney’s commitment to providing top-tier entertainment experiences in a comfortable and well-maintained environment.

Visitors to Disney’s Hollywood Studios during this period are encouraged to explore the many other attractions the park has to offer. As always, for the latest updates on Disney Parks and DVC news, stay tuned to the DVC Shop blog for everything you need to plan your next Disney vacation!
