A rainstorm delayed the possible noon opening and guests took refuge beneath the PeopleMover track.
The rainstorm passed and Cast Members who don’t work on the PeopleMover were invited to ride before guests.
The attraction abruptly stopped about half an hour later.
The Cast Members riding were then evacuated as a test. These evacuation drills are typical before a ride reopens, training the attraction’s Cast Members of the process.
PeopleMover Cast Members walked the track to assist with the ride evacuation drill.
The ride cars were back to running about ten minutes later.
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover first closed in March 2020 unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a grand reopening has been continually delayed since then, though Disney has seemed more confident in this weekend’s opening.
