They don't arbitrarily swap the refurbs every other year.

In general, TL will be closed first and
BB will remain open over the Christmas holiday.

That's because BB is "already decorated" for the holidays.

Then, in January, they'll close BB for refurb and open TL.

The above can be swapped if there is a pressing need for BB to be refurbed
earlier in the winter season.

Robo is right about which they close first, but just to add to the switch date this year:

Those have always been the swap days in the past, and in our Jan trip we were going to do BB first on Jan 3 (sat) before they switched over,(Historically the weekend they switch) but this year the schedule says the last day for BB is Dec 21, then the switch to TL.

The internal calender shows TL closed beginning Sunday October 27. It shows BB closes and TL reopens on Sunday December 22. These dates are still subject to change.
