Attention all Disney train fans!
We know you’ve probably been missing the Walt Disney World Railroad since it closed in late 2018 to make way for TRON rollercoaster construction. Although the beloved attraction has not set a reopening date, we’ve got an exciting update from Disney!
We’re at Disney World’s Destination D23 event where we’ve heard LOTS of exciting news so far! Today, during the Planes, Trains, and Monorails section of the event, we got an update on the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Disney revealed that one of the trains at Disney World has been refurbished recently — here’s a sneak peek at it’s shiny new look!
The panelists made it seem like more work on the railroad was set to happen, so we’ll continue to be on the lookout for more updates!
Disney has not announced an opening timeline for the new TRON Lightcycle Run attraction (which is what caused the railroad to close), and the Walt Disney World Railroad’s closure has been extended into 2022 for the time being. Stay tuned for more Disney news and updates about these attractions!
When do you think the Walt Disney World Railroad will reopen? Let us know in the comments!
