Today’s the day! The Tomorrowland Speedway is back after a lengthy refurbishment and here to stay for a few more years of fumes and sputtering motor sounds.
While the attraction received a number of changes to its exterior in the form of new paint and a cleaner, more updated look, the track itself wasn’t changed much to accommodate for the upcoming TRON coaster adjacent to it. It was merely shortened, but otherwise unchanged, much to the relief of Speedway enthusiasts everywhere.
Check out our full video of the attraction reopening below, featuring a ride POV which also offers some interesting, up-close views of TRON!
Whether Disney could’ve done something more creative with this refurb, like introduce electric cars or apply a Wreck-It Ralph theme to the attraction (which, for some reason, is being done over at the former Stitch’s Great Escape) is still a point of contention for many, but given all the drastic changes going on throughout Walt Disney World, you could say we’re thankful that a bit of nostalgia is sticking around.
