PHOTOS: Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover Closed for Tenth Consecutive Day Following Magic Kingdom’s Reopening

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover remains closed ten days after Magic Kingdom’s reopening on July 11th. Before that, it was closed for Cast Member and Annual Passholder previews. Back in March, the PeopleMover was closed for a week and didn’t reopen before the parks shut down.

A sign outside informs guests that the PeopleMover is not operating at this time. Disney has not released any statement as to why the PeopleMover closed in March or remains closed to this day.

Social distancing markers and hand sanitizer dispensers are in the queue, indicating the intent to reopen the attraction at some point.

We did not see any of the cars moving, which would be a sign that Disney is testing the attraction for reopening.

The ride was once a great way to get a look at construction of TRON Lightcycle Run.

Including the park’s overall closure, we are coming up on five months of the PeopleMover not operating. How do you feel about the PeopleMover still being closed?

The Peoplemover MUST reopen. It is truly a must-do ride every time we go.

This is a real disappointment. The PeopleMover is my favorite ride in Magic Kingdom. I hope it will be open when I go back to Magic Kingdom next year.

I wonder why they have not announced the reason for this? The people mover is a great way to relax at MK. I hope they get it up and running soon.

The TTA People Mover is my favorite ride in Disney World. Seriously. Although it was better with the old narration voice. Disney better not let it die like the Disneyland one!

Why does Disney always have to make everything a fkng dam mystery all the tine! Don’t your loyal guests and AP holders that keep you afloat deserve to the answers to these things? Their silence is very annoying

They will cancel tron, take the tron cars, put them on the peoplemover track and voila, we’ve got supersonic tron rods. That will eventually lead to Disney closing the peoplemover for good.

I wish we had the technology that the people in the 1970’s had so that this ride could not only be fixed but also maintained on a regular basis

They’re probably trying to figure out how to sanitize a constantly moving ride, I think it would be difficult to run & maintain traffic flow with a moving beltway that takes you to the attraction. There would be back ups or too much time in between rides.🤔

Maybe they’re going to change it into a high speed thrill ride called Rocket Rods? You can have that one for free Disney just a random idea off the top of my head. It’ll definitely work.

People mover is a fantastic ride that I look forward to every time I’m there (monthly). I feel sad it’s not open yet and I’ve gotten to ride it again! I’m jonesing for a fix!

The park is open? That’s the big question here.

It broke down in February while we were on it. We were in dark space mountain 45 minutes and cast members came and got us and we led line out and ended up climbing down ladder in hard hat building area of tron. No hard hats for any of us and construction continued while we were in there. Gate by space mountain let us out. Escalator was closed at time also and had to walk up and down if we had made it back there. Stayed closed days then too.

If something permanent like “seasonal operation” happens to the People Mover I will cry for weeks.

Force riders to sanitize prior to getting on the ride. Have someone holding the queue at the bottom of the escalator allowing only so many guests at a time to go up it to get on. They stop it for people with disabilities, they can stop it, spray it down and wipe it after every other ride since they will have to distance them. Unless there is a big party that can take up the entire train. It’s going to be tricky.
