If you’re missing the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, please raise your hand (both of our hands are high in the air)!
Since the attraction is still closed in Disney World with a bit of a confusing re-opening timeline, let’s break down the latest updates from the Magic Kingdom’s classic ride!
Back in January, PeopleMover experienced random technical difficulties when firefighters arrived on the scene. The rampway appeared to be covered in a fire retardant before the attraction was fixed later.
In March, though, the PeopleMover then shut down unexpectedly prior to the official Disney World closure. However, when the Magic Kingdom opened back in July, the iconic attraction was slated to be one of the first rides to open again. Buuut, that didn’t happen and PeopleMover stayed quiet in Tomorrowland.
Despite fans missing their ride through Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Rocket Tower Plaza, the closures were first extended through October 31st. So, we thought we’d be able to kick back and relax on the PeopleMover as we admire the holiday decorations in the park.
Without too much information about why the closures were lasting so long, Disney continued to push the closures through late November and then the end of December. A Cast Member previously confirmed with us that PeopleMover’s refurbishment would last through December 26th. Although, today, it seems like that might not be the case since another Cast Member noted that there isn’t a reopening date for the attraction currently.
So, is there any hope that we’ll see our beloved PeopleMover soon? While there might not be any definite signs of the attraction’s grand reopening, Disney’s internal construction team has been working on the attraction with building permits in place. As we find out more details about the PeopleMover, we’ll make sure to keep you updated on everything you need to know!
