Magic Kingdom Refurbishments

Walt Disney World Railroad

It’s been well over 2 years since we’ve been able to get around Magic Kingdom on the Walt Disney World Railroad. Construction on Disney’s new attractionTRON: Lightcycle Run is currently blocking the tracks in Tomorrowland, causing this ride to be unavailable long-term.

The Hall of Presidents

Meanwhile, in Liberty Square, The Hall of Presidents has been closed as Disney adds President Joe Biden to the show, which happens every time that a new president is elected.
