While we work hard to provide an exceptional guest experience, occasionally exhibits, tours, restaurants, transportation, entertainment, or other services change or close without notice and without liability, due to refurbishing, capacity, weather, or special events. A daily listing of changes or closures can be found at the main entrance of both parks. Please check upon arrival.
