PHOTOS: Construction Walls Erected at Test Track; Now Closed for Refurbishment at EPCOT

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Guests looking to design a SimCar and test-drive its capability, efficiency, responsiveness, and power in Test Track on their upcoming 2020 vacation should be aware that the high-speed attraction is now closed for refurbishment.

While the refurbishment was announced back in October, we trekked over to Test Track to bring you current photos of its refurbishment process.

Cast Members and signage are scattered around the attraction’s entrance plaza. No known changes are planned for the attraction as it is simply receiving a refresh ahead of the massive Spaceship Earth planned refurbishment, where the headlining attraction will be closed to guests for an estimated two years. Do note that the dates listed may shift slightly, depending on construction plans.

Construction walls and scrim-lined scaffolding are now set up close to the entrance facade.

All of the FastPass+ touch points and Cast podiums are now covered.

Test Track’s gift shop, the SIMporium, is also closed throughout the refurbishment.

The sample ride vehicle has also been removed from the wheelchair Transfer Practice Area.

The Test Track refurbishment is set to last through February 26, with the attraction reopening on February 27th.

Good! Close that ride down and put something new in it’s place. Even a different driving experience will be fine. Test track being considered a ride? is a joke. It’s a bland 20 year old ride, their last refurbishment was just adding neon paint and lights. During the holidays I couldn’t believe people were waiting over and hour or two too in line. After riding it they probably said “that’s it”? It takes up a huge chunk of space in the park. I am sure they can think of something anything to put in that place.
