Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover Refurbishment Unexpectedly Extended Again Until May 2021

We reported back in February that the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover refurbishment was surprisingly extended through April 3. The attraction closed in March of 2020 and has yet to reopen. The attraction is now set to reopen on May 1 of this year.

We’ve seen the attraction testing quite a bit lately, so this additional refurbishment extension came as quite the surprise (again). The audio for the attraction was even cycling during recent Cast Member tests, leading us to think that we were set for that April 3 reopening.

Stay tuned here at WDWNT for more updates on refurbishments around Walt Disney World.

I mean…it’s not really that unexpected at this point, sadly. I would have been more surprised if it actually managed to reopen. It really does seem like it should be good to go by now, though, based on all that testing. I hope they don’t give up on it. See you all in a month when it inexplicably gets delayed again.

Booo!!! The People Demand To Be Moved!!

. . . but seriously, this is very unfortunate news. All the more so when you consider the additional “capacity” this would add to MK once it’s finally operating again.

I can’t see why Disney just doesn’t issue a press release as to why it’s still closed. It could be parts are still unavailable, structural issues…whatever. Just let folks know!

The entire Magic Kingdom was constructed in 18 months, and this refurbishment will have taken at least 14 months? Obviously Disney is not giving this top priority.
