3 Rides Will Be Closed This Week in Disney World

This week begins the major overhaul of a favorite EPCOT ride!

Test Track

Disney announced that Test Track will be getting reimagined! Besides some concept art, we don’t know much about what this will all entail.


We know that the ride will continue to be a partnership with Chevrolet and that they will be taking some inspiration from the EPCOT original ride World of Motion. Regardless, you will no longer be able to ride the ride as it currently is as of June 17th. The ride will remain closed for an unknown amount of time, so if you want to ride a fast and exciting ride in EPCOT, grab a virtual queue boarding group for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

Splash Mountain closed on January 23rd, 2023, and the new ride taking its place will open on June 28th!
