Walt Disney World Railroad

The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for over 2 years — construction on TRON: Lightcycle Power Run is currently blocking its path around the park!

Main Street Train Station

The railroad is unable to open until TRON construction makes significant progress. We don’t know when that will be, since Disney hasn’t announced an opeing date for TRON, but our best guess is 2022.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

The PeopleMover has been since closed March 2020. Its reopening has been scheduled and then pushed back multiple times! A few days ago, we spotted it moving along the track…but only because a Cast Member was pushing it.

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

  1. This is another example of WDW upper level management not caring about guest satisfaction. If you already don’t have enough places open to spread out the crowds then why do you close more attractions before you fix something else. There was no reason to close down Hall of Presidents so soon. It could have been open until it was time to make the change then be closed for a week or maybe two, not months. Disney World is not losing money they have chosen to reduce the service and blame it on the pandemic. Unfortunately the front line cast members are the ones who have to hear about it. Management should stop counting their bonuses and get out with the guests.
