Walt Disney World Railroad

The Walt Disney World Railroad is currently closed to make way for construction on TRON: Lightcycle Power Run. Believe it or not, it’s been closed for over 2 years!

Train in Fantasyland Station

TRON construction will have to make significant progress before the railroad can open again. Disney hasn’t announced an opening date for TRON or The Walt Disney World Railroad, but our best guess is 2022.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

The PeopleMover closed in March 2020, and the reopening date has been pushed back several times. We saw testing on the ride recently, but the closure was just extended yet again.

The PeopleMover is now scheduled to reopen on April 4th, 2021.

The Hall of Presidents

The Hall of Presidents closes after each new president is elected, so it can install a new audio-animatronic figure. Currently, the show is closed to add President Joe Biden.
