PHOTOS: Progress Continues on PeopleMover Vertical Support Restoration at the Magic Kingdom

With the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover closed through at least November, we’ve been eagerly awaiting any signs of life on the attraction. Disney recently filed a permit for roof-related construction on the attraction. Now we’ve noticed some changes to the small vertical supports that surround the ride’s track.


The supports used to be surrounded by fin-shaped frames, which were later stripped, revealing the metal base of the supports.


Most supports have now been surrounded with concrete material and are currently gray. In the picture above, you can see that the side of the roof above a restored support is still gray instead of blue.


To the left in the above picture, one support is still surrounded by a gray scrim.


The larger supports beneath the PeopleMover track also recently received a refurbishment, which blocked the Purple Wall from view for quite a while. Hopefully, the PeopleMover will be opening on time for the winter holidays and we’ll get to ride it again before the year is done.

Are you excited for the PeopleMover to reopen? Let us know in the comments.

Tomorrowland is just not the same without the peoplemover in operation.

I can’t wait for the people mover to reopen. It is my favorite ride at Walt Disney World. I have vacation scheduled but I am postponing it until the ride is open again. I anxiously await any updates.
